    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    What Xenoblade Chronicles X loses because of its outdated visuals, it overcompensates with its content.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.

    Lo tiene todo, juego profundisimo, libertad total, historia aceptable, gran jugabilidad, no tiene dlcs y además es un juego que recupera el espíritu de los juegos de antaño, donde no te vendían los juegos por partes y muchos de ellos eran laaaargos y profundos para perderte en ellos horas y horas.
    Tiene fallos como todos, su profundidad lo hace complejo, los manuales son insuficientes y el guion no brilla especialmente, pero sus virtudes los compensan con creces.
    Pocas veces he visto un juego tan vende consolas como este. Imprescindible si te gusta el genero. Personalmente creo que marcará un antes y un después en el genero.

    Completely destroys Failout 4 in every possible aspect. From the character models, all the way to the superior combat system. Xenoblade Chronicles X takes the cake. The foolish and lack of mind will play Fallout 4, and the wise and true gamers will Get Xenoblade Chronicles X.

    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.
