Cons: Lots of cut scenes as usual (the last games, especially Xenosaga 2, had lots of cut scenes.) This game is NOT AT ALL for you if you get impatient from cut scenes. If you skip a cut scene, you will have no idea what-so-ever about the plot anymore at all. The cut scenes are important, so if you do get the game or all three games, I recommend not skipping any cut scenes, and I recommend always having lots of snacks while you play this game.
Pros: EVERYTHING. The gameplay and graphics are fantastic for a PS2 classic like this. Voice acting is wonderful AND THEY BROUGHT BACK KOS-MOS' VOICE ACTRESS THANK THE GODS. Beautiful story, emotional, and quite sad as well. Very nostalgic. I feel as though any new players to this game would really enjoy it. As said, this game was the first game I played of all the other games. I recommend it highly, and you'll see me cosplaying as KOS-MOS in Tokyo, Japan, 2016!!! <3
Since I already played the first two games in the series, I needed to play this one to have closure on the saga.
The battle system has changed a bit, but the puzzle solving and exploring hasn't or else it wouldn't live up to it's predecessors. The game is a little boring compared to the first game to be honest, but at least this is the last in the series because I don't think I can take much more unfair challenge I had to deal with from Episode II.
Shion and KOS-MOS return for their latest adventure and oh how they have been missed in their best showdown yet. Xenosaga Episode 3 takes place after the second installment; an epic story brought down by mediocre gameplay. I will not spoil much but I truly believe this is the best of the 3 in story and gameplay. It will keep you at the edge of your seat from start to finish. Do not miss out on this incredible conclusion to an incredible story. I give a Xenosaga an epic 9.5/10 rounded off to a 5/5 stars.
Gameplay=9/10 (easy to get into, yet for the most hardcore of RPG players)
Story=10/10 (truly epic, very well written and scripted)
Replay Value=9/10 (the sidequests deserve your attention)
Sound=10/10 Great voice acting, great music.
Presentation=8.5/10 (would have been higher but its the same as previous installment)
Graphics=10/10 (characters look the best they have ever looked, background and cinematics are a site to see as well.)
Hope you found this short but to the point review helpful.
Cons: The story is at times "told" rather than "shown" (probably because this series was supposed to be 6 games originally.) You will be constantly toyed with by Xenogears allusions, though any connection between the two never consolidates. Status ailments are irritating and ubiquitous.
Other thoughts: If only the other two games were as good as this one, perhaps this series could have continued on. Everything wrong in Episode II was rectified and then improved on. Though it's not perfect, it makes up for Episode II's relative failure effectively enough that I can recommend the series.
