So I played Xenoblade for 6 hours straight yesterday. To make it clear that I really like it; It's the best rpg on wii.
+ If you do not like like endeless walking, you can use fast-traveling as much as you want
+ abillities are used in the story and in battle (can't say more without spoiling), and use abillities well to survive!
+ Japanese voices are selectable
+ Don't like using healing potions outside battle? Your HP will regenerate fast!
+ Are you afraid the battle-system is too simple? Fear not, it keeps unlocking tutorials for new stuff all the time
+ The story is actually very interesting
+ When you finish a quest, no need to track down the quest-giver, you'll get the reward right away.
+ big open fields and caverns to explore (At times impressive scale)
+ tons of side-missions
+ If you die, you respawn nearby without any xp loss
+ Excellent art direction
- It's a blurry mess
- It has textures from last generation
- It has a lot of pop ups
To be fair, I'm playing it on a 60" plasma. But I really wish the game would've been a 360 / ps3 game. The wii is really struggling at times. However, graphics do not make or break a game. I woke up early to write this, and right after, I'll play for hours again!
