    What shines on the game is the fact that there are numerous bonus bosses for you to slay, and sidequests to gain valuable items for you characters. Although the story may be confusing for some, its pr...

    Xenosaga II was only slightly better than the first game, but that doesn't say a whole lot about the series.

    Overall, I think the story, graphics, sound and world map was all improved. I have mix feelings with the battle system, since I think it was improved in some areas, but entirely messed up in others. T...

    Is this even the same game?

    Rated on January 22, 2006 by LonnieMitchell

    Okay, I have to admit, if you have played the first game, you will wonder if this title was even developed by the same company. They have completely redone the the battle system. You remember all of ...

    It reunites you with all you battle buddies from before. Even if Shion doesn't have her trademark glasses she still will rock the Xenosaga world lol maybe a little too over dramatic. Well it has beaut...

    This one is way more towards character development and interaction then the last one or the next one.

    Rated on November 24, 2009 by GuardianGoryn

    I enjoyed this game more then the previous one because it added more character depth then the first one and the battle system get's a better update from the first one though it's mostly the same. You...
