Thoughts on Xenoblade 2 (self.killallgames)
submitted 11 months ago* by hoppetbort
So they're not without their problems, but I'm a huge fan of the Xenoblade games. You could go so far to say I'm Xenoblade trash. I'm currently probably an ok ways in but definitely nowhere near beating it.
The game is anime as fuck.
Sick butt rock battle music. Spectacular music in general tbh.
The regions and areas therein are absolutely gorgeous and very imaginative, which is kind of the main draw of the games IMO.
Waaaaaaaaay too much sexualization. God it's bad. Like it's not like it's a softcore porn or anything but there's too many moments of unnecessarily (and unrealistically) jiggly anime boobs and shit like that. Xenoblade X had some bad moments but 2 is way more embarrassing. I really hope they tone it down for their next game.
English voice cast isn't quite as good as the first two games. A lot of the acting is either really hit or really miss. When it hits it really does hit though. The main character can't act angry for the life of him. For the most part though it grows on you and gets better as the game progresses.
There are some genuinely good moments of humor and comedic timing that have had me laughing out loud.
I miss the collectipedia from the first two games because they added a lot of flavor ;_;.
The various systems make for some interesting possibilities for party builds.
Combat feels a fair bit more methodical. I haven't decided how it compares to the previous two games and whether simplifying the amount of abilities characters have is nice. Regardless, I'm still really feeling it, even if it still suffers from way too much party chatter.
I kind of get a vibe that they were playing it really safe in some aspects with regards to providing fans with a similar experience to the first game. For example the first open plains area you get to the music is almost too samey to the signature Guar Plains theme from the original.
Overall I'm having a lot of fun with the game but I'd say it's probably the weakest entry in the series. Even so, there's just something about the world design of Xenoblade games that just really keep me into them and captivate my imagination. I can see why a lot of people are disappointed by it though. If you're on the fence about getting it maybe this will help you decide.
