I can't say I enjoyed this as much as Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but its still well worth the playthrough. The cast is very enjoyable, the story is a great time and the music is the highlight of the entire experience. I do have some issues with the pacing as well as some mechanics such as the Mechon and Spikes, but overall the experience was a pleasant one. Onwards to Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (After Future Connected)

Really great game, the story is super gripping and the characters and world design are super interesting but for me the game play let's it down. I guess swing as its an older game it just didn't translate to newer consoles that well.

Despite being the most critically acclaimed game of the legendary xeno metaseries by director Tetsuya Takahashi this is by far one of the most overrated games ever released, the game took everything that made the series so special in the first place (Incredibly human emotionally potent stories full of religious and philosophical influences) and replaced it with generic Shōnen anime tropes that you can find in any jrpg, with weak character writing. On the side of the gameplay the game is the perfect example of quantity over quality with giant areas and 0 level design combine with a battle system based on cooldows and very little depth compare to both the previous xeno games as well as the new xenoblade games. The only way you could think this is a masterpiece is if its your first serious jrpg and arent used to this tropes

Reyn, hit that yoinky sploinky PLEASE!!!

played this in the hospital while recovering from surgery and it changed my life

They made the game look more anime-y which is an unforgivable crime. But it's still Xenoblade 1 so it's peak all the same.
