I didn't get much of a chance to play games during college, so I was thinking that I'd be playing Fallout 4 for a significant part of my Christmas break. I was wrong.
Where Fallout 4 feels small enough that you have to force yourself to go slow lest you run out of worthwhile content, Xenoblade Chronicles X encourages you to take a run at it full-tilt and see how far you get.
The gameplay experience is phenomenal; for the first thirty hours of gameplay, you're exploring the first three continents on foot, constantly gaping at the amount of detail they managed to cram into the planet Mira. Giant animals that look like living landscape are scattered among the smaller offerings, and they aren't just upscaled, poorly textured versions of their smaller brethren, but behemoths that are delicately detailed as if the artists had taken time to look at every inch of them to make sure they got it right. You can see stories of symbiotic relationships from the smaller creatures living with the larger, a detail that took me aback the first time I saw it. There are family systems, and castes, and adaption to environments.
Enough about the creatures though; the landscapes are where it's at. I spent a four hour sitting just exploring Noctilum, the second continent you get to, and didn't get bored. There are giant trees, stretching into the sky, caverns filled with their intertwining roots, evidence of past advanced lifeforms, scenic vistas literally everywhere you turn, majestic mountains, and there's not an inch of it that you can't go.Read more ›
+ Explore the open world and enjoy the scenery. There are no boundaries
+ Decent plot and subplots. It is much more thought out than expected.
+ Pilot a mecha which completely changes the way the game plays
- Questionable music and character design but that's very subjective
- Game pacing as in some areas are too difficult and some are too easy
- Combat system needs getting used to if you haven't played a Xenoblade game before
It's not like the first Xenoblade Chronicles. The first game followed a very story driven, classic JRPG formula. Monolithsoft tested out a new idea with Xeno X, where they set aside the story aspect a bit, and let the gameplay come to the forefront. There is definitely still story, and it's very captivating in how routed in reality the themes are (political corruption, conflicts between racial and religious groups, the whole nine-yards!). The only game I could conceivably compare the story progression to would be the Mass Effect series. It's massive, and you often have 2 outcomes for every mission you take, and no clue if what you do means you get characters killed later in the story or earn the friendship of different alien races, etc. I'll give you an early example (SKIP THE ** PART TO AVOID SPOILERS).
SPOILER******In the early game you can accept a minor mission to exterminate some wild life that made a nest near the city. When you get there, you discover that they're just babies, and have to make the decision if you'll kill them anyway (because they will grow up and could be dangerous), or spare them. If you show mercy, it unlocks a mission later called "A Painful Lesson." You can imagine how poorly that turned out.******END SPOILER.Read more ›
For me, Xenoblade Chronicles X is the culmination of the JRPG genre and 3 years of hard work at Monolith. It is the ultimate open-world RPG with an intriguing story, massive world, fun battle system, and excellent music. The character development in the story is great so far but I'm waiting for surprises. It's probably the most ambitious open-world game I have ever played. I cannot wait to get my Skell.

One of the best games I have ever played. So much to do you can get lost in the game and where you are in the world. Read morePublished 1 month ago by erik liley
Needlessly complicated and poorly explained. If you're willing to dedicate a lot of time to understand the systems you'll be rewarded with a somewhat decent game.Published 2 months ago by AWilk
