    The story is what makes this game what is it. Unfortunatley they put too much emaphasis on just the story and not enough into the gameplay, It's fun through and through, however the game is horribly imbalanced, the cha... Read Full Review

    Xenosaga has an interesting story to tell, and you'll spend much of your time watching it.

    Xenosaga is a very entertaining game, it’s almost like an anime mini series. And it has a list of very likeable characters that deliver the story very well. Story is definitely the heart of this game, and it is a big... Read Full Review

    Xenosaga--to put it simply--is a game for rpg/anime fans. I personally didn't mind the long cut scenes, it's the anime part of the game. What's great is that you can pause the cut-scenes any time you want. The turn-based... Read Full Review

    I finally bought this game a couple of weeks ago. I've been staying up way too late to play "just one more scene". There are parts of the gameplay I don't like, for example, when you go of screen and come back, and a... Read Full Review

    The throne of great RPG's does not just belong to Square Enix anymore.

    I was looking for a good futuristic RPG that had space as its playground. Initially, I was hoping to get this fulfilled by Square's Star Ocean-Till the End of Time. I was fairly disappointed with that game. Xenosaga... Read Full Review

    Xenosaga, sadly, is more bark then bite.

    Xenosaga is a series I had looked forward to for a very long time. I love sci-fi and RPGs so what could go wrong? I even named half my GS user profile after one of the characters and imported a US PlayStation 2 and the f... Read Full Review

    Let me say right off that I love Anime, own a ton of it, and therefore this game appealed to me greatly. For those who do NOT like anime, I suspect it would lose some of it's charm, as much of the game is spent watching ... Read Full Review
