Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the prettier games on Nintendo’s Wii U console, and it’s a standout addition to the platform’s library. Setting aside the learning curve for newcomers and an astute lack of immediate aid from the game itself, the title offers fans a massive world that they’ll easily get lost in. The detail in every portion of it is admirable, and the story (while lacking a central character as likeable as Shulk) is engaging enough to merit trucking through. Even the core battle mechanics are engaging, and the scale of all of these elements will suck up countless hours of any gamer’s time. This could very well be considered the largest title ever published by Nintendo, and it stands tall alongside some of the system’s finest.
