Forums - Nintendo Discussion - So Xenoblade X has an 84 on metacritix because there is too much to do and the world is too big?

That's a lof of people rating it high without having played or completed the game. ^_-

The same thing can be said about people rating it 0.

The point is that, in this thread, people complained that reviewers didn't 100% the game before publishing their reviews, yet you bring up those high user scores on the very day the game released... -__-

Or as many people pointed out with the Japanese release, it's not as good as the first was...

Xenoblade Chronicles X has a 9.4 average user score with 78 ratings right now.

That's a lot of 10s.

User score?



since when is 84 a bad score? o_O;



After 6 hours with the game my first impressions are that it is a good game but not nearly as good as the original Xenoblade.

Xenoblade Chronicles got me addicted in less than 30 minutes. Xenoblade X did not after 6 hours and likely will never be able to achieve that. The story gets completely lost between all those tasks and quests and if you watched the trailers and survival guides, you already feel like you know the whole game, there have been too many major spoilers.

Best feature so far is the hover cam, worst are the target controls. Pressing L+A/Y instead of using the dpad is really inconvenient. Just started story quest 3 and the unimportant things to do outweigh the important things by far.

Feels more like FF12 for me somewhat at this point, just less boring. Feels like it's more about the world and what's around you rather than main character plot, very much a single player game that feels like an MMORPG even more so than the first Xenoblade and a lot like FF12.

How is it compare to another JRPG, especially good JRPG but its prequel in your opinion ?

That's right, it's way better.

Personally I don't think that reviewers should be required to complete an entire game to give their opinion on it, as long as they are honest with the readers how much they completed before writing up the review. Sometimes life gets in the way and unfortunately an incomplete review one week after release will always do better than a complete one 3 weeks after release.


I would be ok with that. At least I would know how far they got. I would like it to be very visible, possibly in the conclusion.

Wow, tbh, the games looks better than an 84. Hitting the game because it's too big is nitpicking. Yeah it's supposed to be big. Are gamers lazy nowadays? Sheesh.
