Edge- Xenoblade Chronicles Review

Edge: "The story is fast-paced and engaging, with regular set-pieces to reward investment. A strong, characterful translation from Nintendo helps enormously, while the all-British voice cast gives the game’s key characters an uncommon, fresh tone. But the greatest triumph is that, unusually for a JRPG, many of the best stories in the game aren’t prescribed, but instead generated by your own inquisitiveness.

Wonders and terrors are equally positioned in 
the world to imbue even the slightest diversion off 
the beaten track with drama and anticipation. When married to one of the strongest battle systems in the genre and a cast of characters and story that twist convention, this world becomes irresistible. It’s a 
potent return to form for Takahashi, then, a glowing comeback for the Japanese RPG, and an injection of creativity for some tired hardware. Xenoblade Chronicles manages to impress, enrich and, best of all, inspire wonder." (Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles) 9/10

I haven't played Xenoblade yet so I won't comment on if Lost Odyssey is better or not.

However I would like to agree that Lost Odyssey was one of the most special and underrated games this generation. It absolutely has one of the most touching stories I've encountered, video games or otherwise.

Is. The only thing that comes close to it is dragon quest 9.

Hack your Wii and drop it in your USB hard drive(region free).

Personally, I would like a sequel (or even a series)... So if possible, I want to give them my money.

In all fairness he could mean rip a retail copy.

I have to admit I rip my ps1 games to play on my phone at lunchtime.

I like it so far, I'm not sold on the voices but the jap voice track is there as an option.
