Diehard GameFAN: Xenoblade Chronicles Review

DHGF: The long wait is finally over and Xenoblade Chronicles is out in North America. I can hardly believe it myself, but the agonizing “will they or won’t they release it?” attitude has finally culminated in what will likely be my favorite Wii game of the year if not one of my favorite of all time. The world looks fantastic despite being showcased on dated technology and both the soundtrack and voice overs are simply superb. The gameplay is an extension of games like it, only it requires far more involvement from the player and seamlessly integrates the ability to “see the future” as a gameplay mechanic. The gameplay gets a tad grind heavy and padded out towards the end, but by then you are so invested as the player that you’ll hardly care. If you’ve been waiting for this game for as long as I have, then I can already confirm what you’ve known all along. If you own a Wii and love JRPG’s, you should check this one out, and soon. Chances are, it won’t be around for long. And you won’t need a vision to know what a shame it would be to miss out (Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles) -
