Zelda Informer writes: "All in all, what I like best about this game is that it’s geared towards letting players follow their interests. Want to just break away from the story and explore? Go right ahead. Want to run around fighting monsters? There are tons of them - including hundreds of tougher unique enemies. The game’s paced well enough to let you do all that at your leisure… When I say this game focuses on “chronicles,” I mean it focuses on giving the players lots of ways to “chronicle” his or her own experience. I won’t agree that Xenoblade Chronicles is the RPG of forever, but I can say that it represents a lot of those qualities that RPGs - no, all games - should aspire to."
