Okay, some of you might disagree with this--but I was really annoyed at the 4+ hours of story material at the beginning of the game.  After the first (short) dungeon, you do nothing but walk from one cutscene to the next, for four hours.  The pacing sucks.  And many cutscenes make no sense.

I'm not sure what to think of this game yet.  I haven't finished it yet, but the editor review here seems generous.  I can tell that LOTS of story has been hacked out.  

I'm still playing it, though, after 30 hours, so it must be fun.

this is the bane of many story driven rpg's its near impossible to strike a balance between gameplay and storytelling without sacrificing one or the other.

I'm loving the game and its pacing myself. And though admitedly long, I like the story segments.
Of course, I'm the type of RPG gamer that pretty much ONLY plays for story and characters. So basically, I think it just falls into what type of rpg-gamer you are. *shrugs*

(as a side note, there was two errors in the review. One, you can walk if you want to by using one of the shoulder buttons (I forget which one, but I always push it by mistake when I mean to bring up a trap ^^;.  The other error is that MOMO's VA isn't Sherry Lynn who played MOMO is Xeno 1.)

Wow, what the hell are you talking about?

This is Xenosaga remember?  The first two games had the exact same format remember?  You knew what you were getting into.  What story segments didn't make any sense?

As I can't merge the topics on PHPBB, apparently, go use the regular Xenosaga 3 thread.
