Xenogears User Reviews

9.5

A must play for all gamers

The good:

Amazing story
Incredibly deep characters

The bad:

Encounter rate is too high
Moments with no music can kill the mood

Summary:

I’ll start this review by saying that Xenogears is amazingly awesome. While I’m generally quite critical when it comes to RPGs, I find it very hard to critique this game. It was made in 1998, over ten years ago, and still manages to beat just about every modern RPG in most aspects. I have no idea why it took me so long to play it, but better late than never at all. If you’re a fan of games with incredible storytelling, and somewhat old enough to follow mature themes and a complex story, then this should be the next game you play.

I’ll be honest; compared to the engaging complexity of the mi...

Xenogears

The good:

well..in fact-EVERYTHING

The bad:

nothing in general..only graphics- partially

Summary:

STORY ..merely can't be described in such review.the best since 198s and until now.not only it is just exciting and like no other rpg,but it has lots of pretty deep references and indeed great sense.for example,developers used F.Nietzsche's philosophy and S.Freud's works,besides,it has pretty much religious references.honestly when playing this game for the first time a few years back I couldn't appreciate it in full.only later,grown up and when I've read mentioned above phylosophers,I've appreciated this story completely..so it is really a worthy masterpiece.

GAMEPLAY great,fantastic battl...

The second best availbe for PSone.

The good:

Kickin' battle system, and off the wall storyline.

The bad:

Low level graphics because its from the PSone.

Summary:

The anime cutscenes where astounding. That was all couped with the deepth of each character. Fei is ungodly by the end. The twists in the story are reminiscent of Final Fantasy VII fame.
Hey this game is the one that nearly beat FFVII in my mind. Glad to see that they are bringing it into the next gens with Xenosaga.
I seriously can't wait for the 7 to 8 part series to flesh out all the connections to the 3 games currently avalible: Xenogears, Xenosaga Episode 1: Der Wille Zur Macht, and Xenosaga Episode 2: Jensiets Von Gut Und Bose.
Hopefully they don't screw it up like they did with St...

weahhhhh!

Summary:

Oh sweet mercy. Xenogears was a great game. The graphics are beautiful. The music is nice and usually fit the situation. The only problem I had with it was that I had no clue what the hell happened. The story may have been one of the most confusing things I've ever seen. And I watched Evangelion! And I was more confused by Xeno than by that great series. I know they both have a whole lot of similarities, but I'm not going to go into that now. First let's start on the graphics of this masterpiece. Great graphics. The sprites were not really super deformed. If you don't know what I mean, ummm...

The bad:

there really isnt anything bad about this game

Summary:

this is probaly the best game i have ever played. A great storyline, ok graphics, its hard but who doesnt love a little challenge, the gears (giant robots), the music ,and the fighting is a great battle simulater.

One of the best RPGs ever

The good:

Graphics-Although they're not good by new standards, the characters have a very nice, almost anime/cartoon look

Music-One of the only games ive never felt like turning the volume down on. Every peice of music fits the scene amazingly

Gameplay-A little slow in the beggining, but once you get the hang of it it's awesome!

Story-Starts you off knowing nothing, but as you go you very quickly catch on. but every time you think youve got it, youre hit with another twist. Very entertaining, amazing story.

The bad:

Practically nothing. Platform jumping gets a bit frustrating in one part, but other than that, perfection!

Summary:

If you like RPG's, if you're a newbie, or if you're just an all around gamer, you'll find something to love here. A great buy at 20 dollars and you'll spend hours playing the heck out of this. Enjoy
