Will The Cutscenes Never End?

Summary:

We have quite a range of entertainment mediums these days with which we can entertain ourselves, and each one tends to come with a different means and reason to obtain that enjoyment. Movies let you sit back and enjoy the onscreen action as the sequence of events is fed to the viewer through visual and audio cues. Dive into a book and you get to read up on all the finer details as the picture of events form in your mind. When it comes to video games the player is expecting solid gameplay as the primary goal; a concept seemingly lost on Monolith Software when they developed Xenosaga Episode ...

Xenosaga: Episode 2

The good:

Simply amazing plot
Battle system has been made faster and gameplay has become overall faster

The bad:

Some of the voice actors have been changed
They took out of the tech attacks.

Summary:

Xenosaga Episode 2 is the sequel to Xenosaga Episode 1 and it doesnt fail to interest the fans (well me anyways)

Storyline:5/5

Gameplay:4/5

Xenosaga 2 review based on partial gameplay experience

The good:

  • Innovative battle system
  • Great storyline that bases much of itself on quantum theory, philosophy, and theology
  • Indepth and original cast of characters
  • Faster paced action (when there's action to be taken)

    The bad:

  • Voice acting is terrible
  • Some long drawn out bits of dialogue
  • Dialog captions could have been vastly improved
  • Score selection could have been improved
  • Glossary index isn't there anymore

    Summary:

    First off, I'm still playing this game and I'm still very new to it. I'm writing this based on the 8 hours of game time I've invested into Xenosaga 2 so far. Bear in mind I'm also a fan of the first PS2 installment, Xenosaga.

    Graphics wise Xenosaga 2 remains very much the same as its predecessor. I don't really mind this because the first one had beautiful colors and was done up very nicely. However, that being said the characters themselves look very different in that they are no longer displayed in a "modern anime" style but are rather drawn more towards a standard CG display.
