Best story, worst disk 2
Xenogears excelled greatly in main character development. Your main character is the top main character you could ever have in a game (Cloud in ffvii was a bit of a...wierdo but still great). Not to ruin the story, but a very wonderful anime styled character which definitely caught my attention.
Now everything from graphics, sounds and gameplay was great and almost the god of all RPGs. (mainly because of the story). But where the game fell was disk2. An almost perfect game, was brought down as if the game was suddenly cut in half. (severed from the head). Disk 2 left an incomplete sensation. It wasn't really a game...it was horrible. All that was left was the story.
Disk 1 on the other hand was extremely good =P....
However, this game is still a must play game for all the rpg and story lovers. With great RPG gameplay, decent graphics, decent sound this game is almost the best. But with the let down of disk 2...it failed where it could have conquered.
If only the games now-a-days had such a wonderful storyline.
