Nathan Misa of MMGN: "It’s been nearly two years since Tales of Xillia first released in Japan, and the wait for the English localisation has been almost unbearable, but Xillia is (nearly) finally here.
Xillia has received nothing but praise from our Japanese counterparts since its launch, and that only hyped me up more to play the first Tales game this generation that isn’t an enhanced port, the first to feature two unique storylines, souped-up graphics and a new third-person perspective, and the first console release to feature a collaboration between Team Symphonia (Symphonia, Abyss and Vesperia) and Team Destiny (Destiny, Rebirth and Graces).
So, is the this the best Tales game yet, as they say? In some aspects, yes, yes, yes! In others, long-time fans may find themselves surprisingly disappointed."
