Beautiful design makes up for Xenoblade's graphical shortcomings - but it's disappointing that the dialogue isn't lip-synced.
This is the best that the Wii can do, but it's not really up to modern standards. The artistic direction makes up for a lack of technical grunt.
A super, varied score with generally excellent localised voice acting. After 35 hours or so you'll have heard one or two of the battle themes a few too many times, though.
A fantastic battle system and literally hundreds of optional quests make this a more exciting experience minute-to-minute than most other games in its genre. There's repetition, but it doesn't grate.
9.0 Lasting Appeal
There's so much of Xenoblade Chronicles that you can't even tell when the end is in sight. A true epic.
