    Great depth and gameplay...

    This is one of the few PS RPGs that I can say that had a real depth and deep storyline that was quite original...The storyline was deep and immersive, used many new concepts for how the plot would run this in turn made a... Read Full Review

    Xenogears is an original title from Squaresoft. It's also quite possibly the best.

    Many years have passed since Squaresoft released Final Fantasy for the Nintendo Entertainment System. In a final attempt at hitting it big, Square got lucky and started one of the most successful franchises in video gam... Read Full Review

    Let me start off by saying that this is an absolute must-have for fans of the genre. If you've ever played and enjoyed a console RPG, don't even bother reading this or any of the other reviews. Go buy it and form your ow... Read Full Review

    Best story, worst disk 2

    Xenogears is highly ambitious and a wonderful game with a rather disappointing sequel. With one of the top stories any game could have every released, the drama of love and the conflict between different people and the u... Read Full Review

    Absolutely TIMELESS... kicks modern RPGs butt to Chinatown!

    Xenogears has always been my favourite RPG world for quite some times now. The most compelling attribute to the world of Xenogears is the immersive storyline behind it. Such is what makes RPGs enjoyable. It is exciting, ... Read Full Review

    Those would want a truly epic RPG experience have come to the right place.

    I really like writing reviews. I don’t purport to know anything about writing them nor do I think I am good at it. I just like doing it. But I like writing about the type of movie/game that is worth talking about, good o... Read Full Review

    Finest RPG in existence.

    This game was sadly overshadowed by Final Fantasy VII, which by its own rights another great game. However Xenogears has defined the genre by proving how deep, involving and intense a RPG plot can turn into. With its mul... Read Full Review

    Xenogears: Exemplo de um Enredo Perfeito...

    Como definir Xenogears? Com apenas uma palavra: ENREDO. Xenogears não é um exemplo de jogo com belos gráficos, surpreendentes efeitos sonoros e um sistema de batalha magnífico... Então, o que faz esse jogo tão "simpl... Read Full Review

    Greatest game ever.

    Xenogears is, in my opinion just as good as the legendary Chrono Trigger. The huge problem with Xenogears was that it was much less publicized then Chrono Trigger or any of the Final Fantasy series. If you havent playe... Read Full Review
