Game reviews for Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose
This game is no way like the previous one. I wanted to play a game not to watch a movie involving the game. There is more movie then game. The first disc alone is seventy-five percent movie.
I'm highly disappointed in this installment. The story is rich and full of life but it has more of a movie feel then a game.
I did not like the fact that certain characters do more damage to certain enemies while others do not. I also thought the elimation of weapon and armor upgrades is another down side to the game.
I did not feel as if it was a true RPG, it seems that they tried to make this into some new hybrid genre. The character voice overs are poorly do to the point where the words stop coming yet the character's mouth keeps going.
They must have had limited funds because the only male playable character that has a different voice is Jr.. They don't even try to disguise or anything.
When you actually get to play the game the music is very plain and does not make you feel any emotion.
I felt like when am going to face an enemy? but then get disheartened by the plain sound then as well. The best part about this game has to be the graphics.
They are truely breathe taking both in the long movies and during gamplay. That is what makes it a true fanasty world and the only thing that they got right.
Without them i would have returned to the store and demand my money back.
I have not completed the game although after thirty hours of gameplay it's safe to say I have played enough to develop an opionion of it.
This game did leave a bad taste in my mouth with the game.
