5.0 out of 5 stars AN IMPERIAL GAME! 19 Aug. 2011
By NeuroSplicer TOP 100 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Xenoblade-Chronicles is one of those great games that (for some unfathomable reason) Nintendo had initially decided not to release outside Japan. Until recently that is. So, if you live in Europe, count yourself lucky because the best RPG on the Wii is finally available outside Japan, fully translated and reformatted for the European systems.

THE MUSIC WILL ENCHANT YOUR SOUL
This is the first thing that hits your senses. The music of Xenoblade reminded me of playing Final Fantasy VII years ago and being mesmerized by its music. The Prelude I can still remember. In Xenoblade, the music will range from atmospheric to epic rock, and all the shades and colors in between.
It will be a familiar companion while you travel and a strengthening presence when you do battle, greatly enhancing the overall experience. Every map has its own theme (most with day and night variations) and you will catch yourself humming them long after having turned your console off.
Sometimes the importance of the music in a game is underestimated and the focus remains on the graphics. Xenoblade is a perfect example of how essential music is in order to achieve a total immersive gaming experience.

LIVE AND BREATH IN A GORGEOUS ANIME WORLD
Now, all of us who decided to go with the Nintendo Wii, we knew that it was not the most graphically powerful console. Its strengths lie elsewhere. Having said that, Xenoblade is the most beautiful and graphically detailed game on the Wii. Ever.
Set on two ancient biomechanical Titans frozen in mid-battle centuries ago, the world is simply enormous. There are about 20 maps, almost every map is huge and it is all open to exploration.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Game of The Year, JRPG Heaven 15 Dec. 2011
By Mr. Martyn Poole VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As I dust off my wii I think about the last great RPG that I got excited about on a Nintendo console and I have to think a long way back to Tales of Symphonia which took me 7 years to complete although I wish I never stopped playing it. Xenoblade sounded amazing and was one of those games that caught my eye the first time I caught wind of it in Japan and then the exciting news that it was being released into the UK.

After over 115 hours of gameplay and 4 replacement batteries later I have to say this is a major contender for my game of the year and that includes Skyrim & Battlefield 3.

The graphics are simply stunning; it's the best looking game on the Wii console by far, not only is it great to look at on a Nintendo console but it holds up well against some of the HD games on the xbox and PS3 too. They open world is absolutely massive and reminds me slightly of Final Fantasy 12 apart from the fact you are actually running around a giant Titan. Not only is the land a joy to look at but it also has its rewards, secret area's and XP bonuses are given when a new location have been discovered along with hidden and special items.

The music is fantastic and some of the best I have heard on JRPG. I have found myself at times just walking around for a couple of hours doing nothing but exploring and still humming along with the background music without getting boring once! It really does suit the game perfectly and that includes the music when fighting which can change tempo depending on how you are doing.
The story is very strong and will draw you in from the very beginning and only gets stronger the more you progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games of our time. 21 Aug. 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Stunning. Simply stunning. If you ever think of your top five or so video games of all time, it is not often a game comes along that can disturb the list. Here is one.

Whilst I am only about fifteen hours into the game, I felt I had to write a review as this game needs more positivity.

The basic premise is that you are living on one of two warring giants frozen in time before the world began-they now are the world you inhabit- and your colony gets attacked by Mechons who reside on Mechonis. You are part of the Hon race, which live on the other giant Bionis. The main character is Shulk who can wield the Monado-a sword which can damage Mechon and also enable Shulk to see the future. Inevitably the fate of the world rests on Shulk's shoulders, and along with his good friend Ryen, and other characters met along the way, they must together venture out to defeat the Mechonis.

Ok so the story sounds pretty average so far, but it is the way in which it is told that lifts this to the upper echelons of video games occupied by a select few. It really is a heart wrenching epic seemingly influenced by movies such as Star Wars-the Monado-, The Matrix-the Mechonis-, Lord of the Rings- the journey and setting- but has a tale itself that easily holds its own.

The graphics are beautiful, some of the best ever seen and when augmented with the story really do enhance it so much more. You can be questing in the dark recesses of a mine only to emerge back on the flushing meadows of the mainland and never feel disconnected. The day and night synchronise perfectly with major story elements, as do the weather effects. There is also a time changing system so you can move to whatever part of the day you wish.
