    Fighting in a gear is fun but thats all what is special in xenogears. The plot my be good but it is so unbelievable bad paced. The first CD is slow like anything else and the second CD is just skipping from one scene to another, while the main character sits on the chair and tells you what happened and what the group did and where they did go. Thats ridicilous. The battle system is average having minor plus for the gear fighting.Srsly maybe it could have been great game if square had not rushed with the game but it did not turned out to be. Expand

    Most overrated RPG of all time. Story is boring, battle system is one of the worst Ive seen, and the characters are not interesting. I dont get all the hype surrounding this game.

  1. Has a very deep and engrossing (perhaps blasphemous, hence the furore) tale to tell.

    Xenogears is a must for any RPG lover, regardless of your views toward Squaresoft. With its depth and creativity, Xenogears is my choice for RPG of the year.
