Best game that I have ever experienced. This was a life changing game for me and I truly mean that.

Xenogears was much more than a game. It was something to experience, as TheOne said above. It dealt with some very mature themes, especially given the console and time of its release, and its soundtrack is some of the best game music I've ever heard.

That being said, Disk 2 is a real trial-by-ordeal between all the narration and the relative lack of save points. But even those quibbles can't detract from its overall greatness.
Yea the second disc was rushed but I still really enjoyed it and liked the way they handled it. The music like you said is absolutley amazing and how could we expect anything less from the composer of Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger. When that message appeared on the blackened screen and the end of the game that said The End of Episode V I nearly had a heart attack. I immediately wanted to know more about it so I did some research and it was episode 5 of a 6 episode story. I think the best thing ever would be if a sequel to Xenogears is made they should make it of episode 6 and rely heavily on episode 1 for the main mysteries of the story. Xenogears incorporated parts of ep 2,3,and 4 in its story but absolutley nothing is known about episode 1 and 6. So I think we need a sequel on the double because we dont know the full story yet. Sorry for replying to you with the longest post ever lol but Xenogears is one of my most treasured experiences and I love discussing it.
