CrossCode rarely fumbles but when it does it's usually due to personal taste rather than faults. The varied environments, challenging dungeons, and fantastic boss fights made grinding all those levels worth the vexation but those tedious tasks still provided extensive moments of distress. Especially when coupled with high health enemies.
The RPG side of things does provide a lot of the content of the game, but it does sometimes seem the main focus is all the different puzzling elements, with the combat feeling a little filler to pad out the game until the next puzzling section. The variety of side quests will keep you busy, although some of the fetch quests can be a bit tedious. But the story is interesting, and it is very fun to play through, so I strongly recommend it.
As a whole CrossCode on Xbox One has many big ideas and the sum of them come together as a whole that ultimately feels too big for its own good. Given its ambitions in design, it’s quite impressive how visually immaculate the whole thing is, from the incredibly detailed graphics to all the little pieces in the game world. The musical score feels epic too, and the presentation as a whole certainly does CrossCode’s ambitions justice.
