Summary

One year after the climatic events of Tales of Xillia in which the two worlds, Rieze Maxia and Elympios, were united by the destruction of the barrier that separated the two worlds. Elympios is a modern nation with a high level of technological advancement gained through the use of spyrix, whereas Rieze Maxia is a previously isolated land which relies on spirit artes and nature. While both worlds work towards peace together, there are still numerous clashes due to cultural differences and it will be some time before true peace is achieved. Jude,Milla and the cast of the original Tales of Xillia from Rieze Maxia now strive to live their lives and fight for peace in this newly reunited world.

Tales of Xillia 2 is hard to judge. Were it a stand-alone title rather than a sequel, filled with unique assets and resources, it would stand as one of the shining JRPG gems of this generation. Unfortunately, the amount of reused content and repetitiveness that is carried over from Tales of Xillia brings its greatness down. It’s hard to judge one’s enjoyment of Xillia 2 as it will be directly correlative to how patient one is with the similarity between the two games.

Tales of Xillia 2 is a shameless attempt at stretching its assets to the breaking point. Flat characters, repetitive quests, and blatant recycling make it a Tales game you’ll want to pass up--this is one debt you definitely won’t want to repay. Tales of Xillia 2 is a frustrating brew of boring JRPG tropes and needlessly repetitive busywork. Don’t let this be the first Tales game you start with.

Tales of Xillia 2 both succeeds and fails by playing it safe. It reuses assets from the first game, brings back characters, and makes only minor adjustments to the mechanics. It's the kind of sequel that targets a very specific audience. But it also ensures that fans will still enjoy the game despite the familiarity. Elements like the needlessly complex narrative and tiresome debt system hold it back from greatness, but the charismatic characters and fun combat system ensure a mostly good time for all.
