"If there’s one aspect to be praised in Tales of… games, it’s that there are endless hours of gameplay to be had, and Xillia is no exception. The main storyline will run you at least 40 hours, and once you complete your first playthrough, new game plus opens. Hardcore trophy hunters will find maximum value here, as the platinum trophy requires over 100 hours of gameplay. If you find yourself in a dry spell looking for an RPG and still own a PS3, you can’t find many better (J)RPGs than Tales of Xillia."
