    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a game that impresses by its size and its ambition. After more than 160 hours necessary to complete 100% of the game I can say that it is a gift for any fan of RPGs, being one of the most impressive games to have in the first year of a console. With varied and very beautiful music this game will guarantee dozens of hours of fun. With so many excellent qualities, Xenoblade 2 is a must-have game in your library and will make you little by little enchanted by these incredible characters.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is exactly what we expected it to be: a magnificent and elaborate game, full of secrets waiting to be unlocked. The joys of exploring play a role as crucial as the writing, which is able to create a deep and original plot. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a masterpiece: another exclusive for Nintendo Switch that you simply can’t miss.

    Without being the game of the year, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 manages to offer enough good things to be a very decent JRPG game that is worth the attention of any Nintendo Switch owner, in spite of a few shortcomings like the awful clipping and framerate drops.

    Extensive and massive JRPG. Although with a rather cliché story and characters, it comes with a beautiful world and a fighting system growing more and more complex with every hour played. [Issue#282]

    It is rare that I will complete a game than is over 15 hours and even rarer a game that will continue pulling me back after 30/40/50/60 hours.It is rare that I will complete a game than is over 15 hours and even rarer a game that will continue pulling me back after 30/40/50/60 hours. In the 70-ish hours I spent in completing this game, it continued to keep me engaged with combat mechanics that were building up till the final hours, a complex and intriguing story, and a world that continued to build on itself. It has all of the elements you would want in an EPIC adventure. If you love RPGs, JRPGs, or an excellent story, this is a must-buy. Expand
