Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Game Review

Veteran Japanese developer Monolith Soft surprised everyone with the excellent, Xenoblade Chronicles which brought together a spiraling open-world adventure and an innovative story into the role-playing genre. Reinventing the groundwork left in the Final Fantasy series, with quests involving hunting and massive battles.

Nintendo Wii exclusive brought joyous moments onto the table and was one of the consoles grandest installments. 2017 has been a fantastic year for the geniuses at Nintendo with the Switch launch, bringing a top of range experience. The only thing missing is an overblown JRPG which utilizes the latest technology.

Monolith Soft hopes to claim a place on the consoles fantastic launch year, with the anticipated sequel of a classic RPG title in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. A game since the announcement, everyone thought would have been delayed until 2018. But can it live up to potential? Or just forget what made the original so good.

Explore an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans. Experience the story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power. Together, search for Pyras long lost home Elysium, the ultimate paradise for all of humanity.

After the short wait, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 delivers a solid adventure which carries over the grandiose open world and robust battle system onto the handheld format. The world of Alrest is filled with gigantic titans and cloud-based locals, which take advantage of the handheld power taking audiences on a journey in the fantasy world.

Rex is the main character of the game, a British salvager that leaves his home comforts to become an influential Xeno helmer. I enjoyed the more laidback approach to a protagonist, as his lust for adventure makes the essential environments more enjoyable to explore.

Despite odd choices in voice acting, both Rex and his party all have likable attributes, making those tough battles worth fighting for in the long term. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 follows the player on his quest with a newfound blade, to find Elysium the universes golden coast – a heaven for everyone.

Chronicles narrative is inspired by classic Japanese anime, with Rex taking place as the quirky protagonist with tons of attitude. These changes might be too much for fans of realistic looking role-playing games, but the striking visuals make the world come alive. Monolith Soft includes a stable dose of comedic elements. Quest lines sometimes lead into uncharted territory, with monster hunts and insane fetch

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 opening hours, are straight to the point and do not include overstuffed tutorial missions instead, it takes us straight into action. I for one welcome these changes in the genre as plenty JRPG’s can overwhelm players, with needlessly complicated battle systems. The breakneck pace means the game can push you into new locals and quest lines, faster than most games.

The basic gameplay of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, has not changed much from the excellent predecessor. Go to the full article.
