Dual Import Reviews: Xenosaga Episode II
11.26.04 - 1:56 AM

Released in June, Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose was about as hotly-anticipated as the first game in the series, even despite the overwhelming concerns with most gamers over the lacking gameplay of the first outing. The gameplay, along with the visuals, were the two aspects most obviously changed since Episode I - which of course, has also become a source of debate for some.

Our two import reviews here - by Ryan Mattich and Chris Winkler - offer two different views on these aspects, along with their thoughts on everything else in the game. Unless you know Japanese and have a way to play imports, you've still got over 3 months until the English release, so if you're dying to know what our two Japanese-speaking people think, check out both reviews below.

Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose is due for a release February 15th, 2005 in North America.
