I'm mixed on it to be honest. Probably somewhere in the 7s area myself. There are things I like about it, but the lack of tutorials, the boring ass battle system, music, and the controls (stupid fisher price tablet) really hamper the experience. I liked the original much more than this, but there are some nice things about it as well like world exploring and what not.

I'm absolutely in love with this game. It does get a tad confusing but here's a tip, READ THE MANUAL. (This is a tip for everyone)
It helps a lot, trust me.

The manual helps a LOT for tutorials. Also, you can use the pro controller. 

Personally, I love the battle system and music.

I'm about 20 hours in (almost have my skell) and it is a very fun game, but it has a lot of little irritations. Lip sync is horrible, 

That's just because they can't be bothered to change it from the Japanese. 



Better than Witcher 3?

I'm almost 30 hours in and I'm already in love. It's not perfect, but it's so good that waiting so long to play it is worth it (been hyped for this game since the first reveal).
I'm still in chapter 4, but it's just that I enjoy exploration so much in this game! It's beautifully made, every continent is incredible, it's huge but at the same time you don't get bored. I could spent hours wandering around in Noctilus, damn, they deserve an award for this.
What I'm really curious about is how much has it sold fw, I hope it sells well this is a masterpiece for me.



I've really only tried a little and I think I'm going to leave it until after I've finished xenoblade (I'm level 74 I think I'm somewhere near the end... maybe) and played through fallout 4.

On the surface X is disappointing when compared to xenoblade.

The conversations seems wooden and filled with pauses. The presence of a silent protagonist really doesn't help and I think in this case that was a design mistake.

The music does jar with me and I thought I'd be ok with it.

The off tv play seems like an after thought and as someone who is playing xenoblade entirely in off tv mode I can say that Xenoblade has got far better off tv support. It has larger clearer fonts and the map is mapped to the convenient minus button. I prefer the button mapping in xenoblade but that might be because I'm used to it. I also prefer the menu system, again that could be because I'm used to it - along with the larger clearer fonts which work well in off tv mode and with my so so eyesight.

I haven't played enough to give more negative crit. But what I liked about X was the sense of scale, the outdoor visuals and strange life forms and their more realistic behavior such as feeding and sleeping.

It's more open and less plot orientated than xenoblade and I feel it is to dissimilar to warrant the xenoblade name. It suffers from comparisons which is a shame.

I've not yet finished Xenoblade, and it's not perfect, but Xenoblade is likely one of, if not the best, jrpgs I've ever played. Expecting X to live up to that, especially when it's trying to be something very different, is too much.

That game is basically mass effect trilogy meets dragon age

Glad I'm not the only one getting strong Mass Effect vibes.

A lot of the art direction in particular, like the Blade Barracks interior and some of the armour and guns, looked straight out of Bioware's trilogy.

Yep I am with you guys. It definitely has a Mass Effect theme to the graphics. And it was also the Barracks that made me think that. As far as Xeno games go, it feels the most like Xenosaga. Especially the characters and their interactions, as well as the writing. 



Best game on wii u to me, really loving it, Play it 18 hours and in chapter 7 and I have lost like 3 hours just exploring.
