CGM Reviews Xenoblade Chronicles

After getting a lot of hype from our neighbors overseas, Xenoblade Chronicles has finally made its way to North American with some considerable expectations. There have been whispers of it being one the of the finest RPGs of its generation and certainly the best on the Wii (which admittedly, doesn’t offer a hell of a lot of competition in the genre). Well, the game is finally here and the good news is, the hype is justified. This is a fantastic RPG with enough twists in the established formula to enliven what is starting to become a somewhat dated genre. (Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles) 83/100

The hype IS justified.

I haven't found myself as immersed in a story and setting in a game since Final Fantasy X. It's amazing.

Sure, it has some flaws, but I'll be thrice damned if it's not the most enthralling JRPG I've played in 10 years.

It's a pity that a game like this (and The Last Story) is on the Wii instead on the PS3/X360.

You just have to swallow your pride, get a Wii for 50 bucks, and play some great games.;)

Agreed. I love it, but I want to see it on an HD console.

Buying this. So sick of shooters. A good jRPG is definitely a must.
