    If you loved Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii or Nintendo 3DS, you will soon find yourself a new love in the form of Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U.

    That is because ultimately, in what the game tries to do, it succeeds completely: it creates an incredible, breathtaking, awe-inspiring world that is an absolute joy to run around in, to fight in, to collect in, to look around in, to be in. It may not have done so flawlessly, but Xenoblade Chronicles X gave me one of the finest worlds gaming has to offer, and it populated that world with incredible things to do.

    While those hoping to just pick it up and immediately know what they're doing are likely to be a bit overwhelmed at first, others who are looking for a deep title chock-full of systems and content that have a learning curve will be well taken care of. There are certainly issues, but they get swallowed up by the sheer quality of the base game and its focus on depth.

    Xenoblade Chronicles is otherwise great, but the thin main plot and sheer repetition drop the score. [Jan 2016]

    What Xenoblade Chronicles X loses because of its outdated visuals, it overcompensates with its content. It is a huge, long-lasting and yet throughout an entertaining title, which relies on combat and character development. [Issue#260]

    Massive open-world JRPG with astounding exploration but some pacing and storyline issues.

    It ought to remind us of what’s so good about the maximalism of other JRPGs.

    I purchased this game by accident. Somewhere in my mind, I had mixed up Xenoblade and every other Xeno--- game ever made. Needless to say,I purchased this game by accident. Somewhere in my mind, I had mixed up Xenoblade and every other Xeno--- game ever made. Needless to say, this is NOT a direct successor to one of my favorite games on PSX, Xenogears.

    However, I am incredibly grateful to my not doing any research on the title and finding out another 6 or so games have been released since then... as I was very surprised by the complexity achieved by Monolith on the console many have cast aside. This should be JRPG of the year. The content; the questing; the EVERYTHING. I have to admit I am nowhere near finishing this game, and that's a good thing since I usually speed-run games on weekends, but something about this game just made me want to slow down. Haven't felt this way since Skyrim.

Pero al final no deja de ser una joya de la Wii U y el mejor JRPG de la generación. Expand

    It's not a pick up and play game, it requires effort and patience.
    This game is huge but filled with long cut scenes, uninteresting characters and a really REALLY boring plot.
    The game shines the most when you're free roaming, It's beautiful, it's exciting, it's fun.

    A psychological bootcamp for which the consumer is supposed to play, so *they* get what they want - one-sided trade without delivering anything for the money - effectively shameless theft with lower motives of psychologically conditioning the player according to the after work is /at/ work agenda.
