WGTC: Xenoblade Chronicles Review

Mike from We Got This Covered wrote:

"In a day and age where most of the world is simply waiting for the next Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto, many fanbases have been abandoned or left waiting for a game to represent them on the retail shelves once more. JRPG fans are a testament to this. This console generation has seen a severe lack of worthwhile JRPGs on any console. Sure, there’s a ton of those anime-style games around, but very few get an American release, and even fewer of them are the kind of JRPG that fans of older games like Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger would enjoy. Xenoblade acts as a shining beacon of hope to the JRPG community that we may not yet be forgotten." (Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles) 100/100

While I do think the game is good and it's genuinely nice to see a true JRPG among most of the shit that classifies as gaming nowadays, I think the scores this game has been getting have been a bit...inflated as a result. The game is far from perfect and has issues here and there, yet I've seen a LOT of 'perfect' or near perfect scores and they all seem to credit the game for being a reminder that JRPG's exist and perhaps the last of it's kind etc. That's all well and good, and I agree completely, but I think the sheer refreshing factor this game has on the genre has lead it to receive a much better critical reception than it perhaps deserves. I don't know... the game IS good, don't get me wrong - I just don't agree with all these perfect scores going around like it's the next coming of Christ.

i think its an 8, Tales of Graces is better IMOO, the story in Xenoblade is better but the Gameplay in Graces is much better

Yeah, definitely a great game and the actual scores don't bother me really, but a great many of these reviews don't even seem to ACKNOWLEDGE that there are problems with the game.

I don't think the scores are inflated as it is. Its not like Skyrim which is broken or ME3 which deceived the fanbase and has a ludicrous ending and still pull perfect scores despite its many flaws.

Its a score, its useless, take it or leave it.
