5.0 out of 5 stars AN IMPERIAL GAME! April 18 2012
By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
DISCLAIMER: This review refers to the UK version of the game, released under the name XENOBLADE CHRONICLES.
___________

MONADO: BEGINNING OF THE WORLD (aka XENOBLADE) is one of those great games that (for some unfathomable reason) Nintendo had initially decided not to market outside Japan. It has been available, fully translated, since August in Europe (where my copy came from). This used not to be true for the US. Luckily, Nintendo North America (finally!) yielded to the pressure of the fans and announced the release of the game: IT IS COMING IN APRIL, 2012!

THE MUSIC WILL ENCHANT YOUR SOUL
This is the first thing that hits your senses. The music of Xenoblade reminded me of playing Final Fantasy VII years ago and being mesmerized by its music. The Prelude I can still remember. In Xenoblade, the music will range from atmospheric to epic rock, and all the shades and colors in between.
It will be a familiar companion while you travel and a strengthening presence when you do battle, greatly enhancing the overall experience. Every map has its own theme (most with day and night variations) and you will catch yourself humming them long after having turned your console off.
Sometimes the importance of the music in a game is underestimated and the focus remains on the graphics. Xenoblade is a perfect example of how essential music is in order to achieve a total immersive gaming experience.

LIVE AND BREATH IN A GORGEOUS ANIME WORLD
Now, all of us who decided to go with the Nintendo Wii, we knew that it was not the most graphically powerful console. Its strengths lie elsewhere. Having said that, Xenoblade is the most beautiful and graphically detailed game on the Wii. Ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny. July 17 2014
By Sean
This was more or less the deciding factor in getting a Wii-U to begin with, and I've not been disappointed yet. The price tag seems fairly steep, more so since I picked up my copy a few months back, but if you can get it for around the 100$ range you won't be sorry. Assuming you're a proper RPG fan of course. I mean I've spent more money on Diablo III and it's expansion, and that's basically just for mindless click-fest gameplay..some story about evil, kill stuff, etc... But Xenoblade actually DOES give you some meat in terms of depth. Once you get used to the gameplay it's great, especially since it's one of those rare Wii titles that didn't try to stuff some idiotic gimmicky crap on us in terms of controls/motion/etc... which seems to be fairly common with the first-gen Wii titles. Better still, Xenoblade Chronicles X (sequel) is on it's way soon, so now is the perfect time to pick this up and see what all the fuss is about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xenoblade - Get lost in its world. Dec 2 2012
By Chris

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game took a while for me to warm up to. The controls were a little awkward at first and the character design is a little uninspired, but I gave this game a chance. I really wanted to like it.

And before I knew it, I had 40 hours of gameplay wracked up on it and I thought, "...Where did the time go?" It's so easy to lose yourself in the story and world. It's expansive, beautiful, and rewards you infinitely for exploring it. The story really takes its time, and that's a great thing.

THE WORLD

To say it's vast is an understatement. It's enormous. It's also full of landmarks. Not only do you get rewarded in EXP for discovering new landmarks, they serve as waypoints for quick travel. Though the world is enormous, once you've uncovered sections of it, returning to points takes no time at all. Keep an eye out for secret landmarks as well, those not marked on a map until you're right on top of them.

What I really like about it is that it strikes such a great balance between open world gameplay and linear storytelling. There's a main story to follow, and I'll get to that in a bit, but there's never a rush. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of sidequests to do, each raising your affinity and recognition in a certain area. One of the major subplots involve rebuilding a colony that was destroyed by the Mechon - the game's major antagonists. This alone involves dozens of hours of finding building materials, recruiting villagers, and doing quests and errands for the rebuilding crew.

THE STORY

In ways, the story feels very post-apocalyptic. It's a world in which humans, or Homs as they're called, build colonies on the body of a sleeping titan out of scraps left behind by an ancient war.

This is, in my opinion, what Final Fantasy XII should have been when it was release. Great JRPG with an Excellent back story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome May 25 2014
Verified Purchase
Expansive rpg and decently fleshed out characters. Battle system is easily the best part. Voice actors are all British and kinda sound tge same, especially the guys. I found the voice acting hilarious but that's just me. Overall amazing game 2/10
-Gamespot

Kidding more like 9/10. Must have for anyone who likes action rpgs, mmorpgs or maybe even jrpgs and wrpgs. My reason for the 9 is because I would've personally like a bit more out of the story. It was def good but had a few plotholes I noticed.
