I never picked up Xenoblade 2, I heard navigation is clumsy and leads to wondering around blindly for too long. But I also heard the navigation system was patched. Any thoughts?
This is the first time I have heard about navigation issues in Xenoblade 2..... So I guess that might answer your question on my feelings :)
But seriously. Xenoblade 2 has a wonderful story and is adorably quirky. It has a great combat system and I was itching to play it everyday. You should get it, you won't regret it. Only complaint from me is that it has pretty bad difficulty spikes at times.
