    Would look fantastic in HD, the game world is ridiculously gorgeous. Just a pity I couldn't get on with the actual gameplay.

    It's easily the best looking game art direction-wise in the last few years. A HD rework in 1080p would look incredible.

    Fix the pain in the arse quest giving system, and that horrible boss towards the end which pushes your party into the death liquid just by it's sheer size, and I might just get a Wii U just for this and Bayonetta. Criticisms aside though it was a stunning game on the whole, the best JRPG by some distance since Lost Odyssey.

    The soundtrack as well needs way more recognition. Some of the score has still stayed with me even a year after I last played it.

    Best RPG of the past two generations, at least, for me. Not having to grind in order to level up? A problem that isn't considered a problem by so many developers out there. Love the combat system too.

    I put 210 hours into my one game save (not new game+). 210 hours - I normally get bored of any game at maximum 20.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    The battle system was the main bugbear for me, I just couldn't get to grips with it. It's way too chaotic for an RPG, imo. The NPC fetch-quests were also dull, and I wasn't at all interested in the cliched JRPG storyline and characters. I probably would have persevered if it wasn't for Zelda coming out at that time, but I decided to shelve it when I realised I wouldn't be completing it any time soon.

    I can see why it rated highly though, as the setting and soundtack was fantastic - it had better vistas than any HD game I've played. That alone makes me tempted to give it another try, especially if they ever release an HD remake.

    Genuine question. Just picked this up to play on the wii u and am wondering is this like twighlight princess, a port of a GameCube game? The character models, animation and such are appalling.

    And I forgot how hateful the wii control scheme was, do I need a classic controller to play this?

    @RyanDS Nope, not a GC game. It was made for the Wii. And I used a classic controller to play it, myself.

    Odd question maybe but... can this be played one-handed or do you need to use the nunchuck and wiimote?

    You need both hands.

    Hence I have stopped playing as the wii has hateful controllers, will restart when I can get a classic controller.

    10 hours in and this game is utterly fantastic.

    But why oh why did they fuck up so badly by making this on the Wii? All I can think of every second of playtime is that this game is a 9.5/10, but would be one of the best games of the gen if it was on a console that could do graphics that did justice to the art style and had a decent controller.

    The graphics I can overlook, but fuck me the wii is shit for anything other than party games. (The wii mote anyway, still trying to track down a classic controller.) Trying to press any buttons other than the trigger and the A button is an excersise in frustration, and controlling the camera is a fucking nightmare.

    It is good to see a JRPG with a cast of character that I don't hate though.

    @RyanDS
    Hi mate
    You need to play this game with the classic controller pro, that is what I use, and it is brilliant. Tried with the wiimote and as you say, it is pants.

    Yes, definitely use the classic controller! Much more enjoyable.

    Holy shit. Got my Classic Controller Pro dodgy chinese rip off and this game has really gone up a notch.

    It makes a huge difference being able to actually move the camera and look around. Suddenly I realised when you look up you can see the titans towering above you and such.

    Awesome, awesome game.

    Found the big-boxed limited edition with included red controller a week or so ago in my local 'dodgy outlet'. Was in excellent condition and only 22, thought I'd take the plunge. Completely blown away by it; one of the most memorable games I've been fortunate enough to play.

    Also pleased to see that the version I have sells for 100+ ordinarily.

    Ah man. Everywhere seems to be sold out of this :(

    Don't suppose anyone is looking to get rid of their copy of this?

    If you're quick Zidargh, CEX have one instock at the not-quite-as-ridiculous price of 30: Linky

    For what it's worth, I'd happily pay 50 for this game. There is well over 100 hours of playtime in it.

    It might be worth considering that Monolith Soft's previous efforts at a Mechs-and-Gnosticism RPG were screwed over by over-ambition and poor executive management, and that it took Nintendo to see the potential, and to make sure ambition didn't overwhelm them. I'd say a hit to the graphics department is worth the price of having an actual, complete Xeno game!

    And hopefully it will mean Xenoblade will show up in the next Smash Bros. I am looking forward to more "Reyn Time".

    There used to be another much larger thread on XBlade I believe. No idea where that went. And yes, game has to be played on Pro Controller.

    Can't believe there are complaints about the graphics above - they are astonishing.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    My complaints about the graphics have diminished as the game continues. Character models especially in cut scenes are fuzzy low polyPS2 graphics, but the world itself is stunning.

    The original thread is lost as the OP was banned for spamming the forum with gay porn.

    Oh yeah, the music is fantastic. it's very rare I keep the sound turned on during an RPG, but I do so here. (Usually after 10 hours I get bored of the music and mute it and put on the radio.

    I'd say the battle music is the best the genre has seen since the SNES era.

    And the bit where you collect a thing on the edge of a cliff: scariest gaming moment ever.

    So Gameseek - they any good?
    CEX have 1 in stock online - Risky proposition given it's CEX?

    No other bastard has a copy it seems. Was this game actually sold anywhere in the UK? harumph.

    Well it hit the top 10 in the UK charts so there must be copies out there somewhere. Do amazon not have it?

    One circle jerk image is hardly spamming the forum.

    What's more impressive about the world is the complete lack of loading times despite the enormous scale, it's tecnically impressive despite the low poly character models IMO.
    One of the best soundtracks I've ever heard too.

    On the WiiU, can this be played on the controller screen exclusively? I'm thinking it might be a good game to play when the TV is in use...
