-It's a story-driven game, but the story is mediocre and contrived. The story also only goes up to level 50, so if you play beyond that to fight the high-level enemies you see roaming around since the start of the game, you'll run out of interesting things to do.
-The game has no particularly memorable characters
-There are only a couple good songs in the OST
-The game has a frustratingly slow, cumbersome camera. It's a few steps back in evolution. Even on the N64, this kind of camera control would've been criticized. It's only really functional in wide open spaces and only if you don't make sharp turns. A significant part of the gameplay is waiting for the camera to turn around. Even resetting the camera takes several seconds.
-When it comes to customizing your character's physical appearance, the game is mediocre and has limited options. It's hard not to make an ugly character and the pseudo-anime faces feel out of place when everything else has realistic aesthetics
-The world-building is excellent, not only in terms of the land but the beings that inhabit it and their relation to one another
-The game has a very good combat and skill system that keeps things fresh and interesting
-Quests, especially sidequests, often address controversial issues and moral ambiguity in a successful way
-The game succeeds in making the player care about what happens and want to see what happens next
-The game succeeds in creating a sense of urgency
-The game is very well-paced, introducing game-changing aspects of gameplay such as mech suits, flight, new skills and gear, new shops and party members and more to reward progress
-The mech suits, a major part of the game, are very-well implemented both in terms of gameplay and the mythical role they have in-universe
-Customization for mech suits and an abundance of clothing items somewhat makes up for the mediocre character creation
-Unlike most open-world games, there are enough satisfying diversions on your way to an objective that it's better not to fast travel
In the past decade of games there are a few games that have really grabbed my attention and kept me engaged.
KOTOR, Mass Effect, Skyrim to name a few. I am going to add this game to the list. I have not played Xenoblade Chronicles on the old Wii. I dislike games with pre set characters. This one changed that for me. Graphically it looks amazing and is probably the most impressive visual game the Wii U will get.
There is a decent character building section. I believe the quasi anime inspired design of the character's limits all the options. People will not find this aspect as impressive as Skyrim or even Mass Effect's build section.
Nearly everything is bigger than you. The nuts and bolts of the story is this. You are a crash survivor on a distant planet teeming with life. And in this planet most everything is as big as.. or far bigger than you.
If you can see it in game you can probably get to it.
I have yet to earn my mech piloting ability in game. But nearly every landmass I have seen show up in the game can be reached. Nothing in this game is small.
The world is dangerous. As I mentioned before you are far from the biggest creature around. What's more some things see you as lunch and will take you if they spot you. And you can't just cruise through areas because you see a few low level enemies. Sometimes far meaner ones are lurking in wait for you to run by.
but the visuals and soundtrack to this game is flawless. the battle system is engaging and equipment/arts are customizable, making it so that there's many ways to approach battles and to find your own comfortable style(s) of battling. the pros make up for the cons, so much that it's easy to lose track of hours and spend days just trying to take in the game's massive world. that said, don't play this game unless you're willing to put in a lot of hours into this.
It’s a game that understands the importance of rewarding players for their personal investment, and it makes sure that, no matter how convoluted its design, no matter how lengthy its tangential content, the payoff is always worth the time and effort.
There are moments that make me scratch my head, infuriate me, and even make me cringe, but when I consider the layered mass that is Xenoblade Chronicles X, all I can think of how damn arresting it is. How much of it is there. How much of it is thoroughly enchanting.
Oh, and did I mention the music? Hiroyuki Sawano maker of many Anime related music (like Attack on Titan!) has made truly on hell of a soundtrack YEAH! OH! NLA! Easy GOTY 2015 for me and anybody how loves big JRPGs with 300+ hours of gameplay should buy it ASAP!
