    Does it still hold up in 2018?

    I am probably one of the odd ones having finished Xenoblade Chronicles after Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (I did not play Xenoblade Chronicles X). In fact, my love of XC2 is what kept me pushing through to the end of XC1. XC1 ... Read Full Review

    Giant and Expansive

    Xenoblade Chronicles feels as large and expansive to me as any console RPG made to date. Its an epic tale with a huge scope set in a huge and engrossing world. Its graphics feel a generation or two behind at this point ... Read Full Review

    A pretty simple game with an interesting premise and some fun game play.

    Walking into this game I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to feel. On one hand, I am a huge fan of RPG games and clearly understand how they are played. But on the other hand, I don't pride myself with too many Japane... Read Full Review

    Nothing special if you own more than a Wii

    As far as RPG's go Xenoblade Chronicles is pretty good, I'd even go so far as to say it's the best game on the Nintendo Wii. However, things start to fall apart when you compare it directly against other consoles games. ... Read Full Review
