Xenoblade Chronicles is a JRRG or (Japanese inspired Role-playing Game), that has some western influences that result in one of the best adventures of this decade. The world is quite fantastical as the world itself is set on two deceased giant machines. The story centers around a colorful group of characters that are trying to defend against mechanical invaders. The are hundreds of side-quests to take part in and a collectopedia that allows you to unlock additional items, all-in-all expect about a 100 hours of playtime. The graphics are quite good for Wii and often times compare to an early Xbox 360 title. The music is absolutely wonderful and the imaginative narrative and cast of characters is quite endearing. This game belongs amongst the lofty ranks of Final Fantasy VII and Chrono Trigger!
What Parents Need to Know
The game features real-time combat against fantastical, humanoid, and mechanical creatures. Players wield melee weapons such as swords and use magic in combat. Blood is only present in some cut scenes, but with no gore.
Very light language that includes “hell” and “damn”
Some of the female characters wear revealing outfits that show midriff, upper-thighs, and cleavage.
Drug / Tobacco Use
Some secondary characters can be seen drinking and smoking.
This has become one of my favorite games of all time and the game’s protagonists actually fight for what they believe in. The tale can be a little mature, so I would recommend for teens and older audiences.
