Xenoblade Chronicles Review [GameZone]

Vito Gesualdi writes "I'm personally horrified that while a class struggle rages on in our streets, people seem unable to summon passion for anything beyond the commercial sector, raging fanboys decrying the shoddy ending to Mass Effect 3 while scarfing down Taco Bell's new Doritos Locos Tacos by the fistful. Unfortunately, I can't claim to be completely displeased by these various movements, and though I know that the shoddy community put together to support Mega Man Legends 3 will likely never revive the only video game I've been honestly excited for in decades, I am quite pleased with the success of Operation Rainfall, the grassroots fan movement which pressured Nintendo into supporting their slowly declining piece of hardware with some legitimate import titles." (Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles) 9/10

"The Japanese RPG market has definitely dried up here in the states, the genre's reputation having been considerably damaged by the continued decline of its most popular brand, Final Fantasy"

More generalizations, pathetic..........

most reviewers loved 13 and 13-2

you think the games would have 84 and 80 averages respectively if most didnt like them?

"For RPGs, for which the sole draw is a sprawling universe to explore, this overbearing linearity has damaged the Japanese take on the genre almost beyond repair."

more generalizations

Not all rpgs have to be the same you know.......etrian is just as much a stud rpg even though its linear, and a dungeon crawler, that doesnt make diablo any less fun>
