Anfebious! It's time! Prepare for (my attempt at) revenge!
So, you didn't like Xillia?
Jude X Millia is one of the best things to ever happen in the Tales of series.
The battle system is better because now you can combo your enemies (in Xillia you couldn't as they could break out of them!). You can't combo like mad though, you have to follow a certain rule. Once you hit an enemy with an element he is weak to you can keep the combo going as long as the "power hit" circle doesn't run out. To keep it going you have to add different elements to it (for example use a fire element arte). It's pretty cool!
There is a new character episodes that serve as a sort of "social link" where you can raise your affinity with the Xillia cast. Another great addition.
The bad part is that you have to almost max them to do the extra dungeon so another playthrough is required.
The main problem in the game is that you visit the exact same dungeons as the original. Nothing is changed, the same dull dungeons are there for yout to explore... and the few new ones are just as bad.. When they announced the sequel to Xillia I thought we would spend the whole game in Elympios, but instead we get to reveisit Rieze Maxia again... that was not cool.
Also there is an overall depressing tone to the game that feels kinda off. I guess they tried to make the game more mature but Tales of was never about mature storylines.
In the end I like it but I feel it could have been a much better game.
Sorry for the long explanation!
That being said...what you're telling me about the dungeon design is...disappointing. One of the biggest flaws in Xillia is the map/dungeon design: boring. Every port in town looks the same, every path is the same but in a different colour and halfway the game, the monster design is the same but in a different colour.
The social link seems interesting, but man that's crap if you're forced to do it regardless for the extra content D:
Exactly my thoughts on the dungeon design. They used to be cool on previous Tales of games! For example, the dungeons in Symphonia!
You are not forced to do them. but they are too good not to do them! What sucks though is that you need to do another playthrough and do the same episodes to get max affinity. You could also max it playing poker but... it's too time consuming.
I say you buy it (once the price is lower) if you really loved Xillia!
yo dude what's up?
Everything's cool! Playing less games and studying more I'm afraid.

Always a pleasure to read this kind of articles....
Ness: I love his back throw... it's so freaking satisfying. Ganondrof: I love his spike! I also like the fact that he is probably the worst character (or one of the worst at least). That makes winning with him a lot more satisfying. Captain Falcon: It's the soul of Super Smash Bros. Without Captain Falcon there is no Super Smash Bros....
