The simple story, although held together by strong performances, is forgettable, which is a shame given the stage in which to play. The complex game system, although undermined by the sometimes mundane combat and dull fetch quests, is enough to propel hours upon hours of exploration of Mira, even beyond the initial main story.
Xenoblade Chronicles X embraces the gigantic world found within it and provides gamers with not only beautiful environments, but uniquely designed creatures that inhabit them. The combat feels familiar in some ways, while also providing many nuances that set it part from its spiritual predecessors. The Wii U may be nearing its life cycle, but it certainly still has a little gas in it with yet another gem in Xenoblade Chronicles X.
Luckily for the game combat is awesome, the story is worth sticking around the lengthy conversations for, and the world is interesting enough that sticking around for a while wouldn’t be the worst use of my time. It’s an odd approach, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a lot of fun with this game.
