    This game is shit, as was Pandora's Tower. Xenoblade should have been the only one localized from the three. I can't wait for them to lose money because of this release.
    e:In case it wasn't obvious I'm suggesting you don't waste time downloading it.

    Wow someone is trying to steal Guild's spot for "GBAtemps worst opinion of all time".

    Ignore this person, though Pandora's Tower was meh at best.

    This is a fantastic game (I've actually played and finished it), one of the best JRPGs in recent times and it's a credit to Xseed to do what Nintendo didn't.

    You are correct about this, I played this game on out day in Japan and was really amazed because it was on Wii. It reminded me little of game Final Fantasy12 on PS2 :D

    Its nice to finally see a scene release. I had to rip mine from a GameFly rental. I may find and try this however to see if it actually agrees with my WODE. (Strange issue, I've got a topic.) I need to find time to play more of this. Chapter one was awesome.

    The learning curve is a bit steep, mainly due to my brain trying to bind controls to actions done automatically (like attacking), but this is a great example of what the Wii can do.

    The game is OK. I wouldn't call it "one of the best JRPGs" as it is very story-focused and doesn't have as much freedom as most classic Final Fantasy games or Xenoblade Chronicles, the battle system also gets repetitive and it is rather short. Still I wouldn't call it bad. It's a nice snack for people who don't have time to play a larger RPG.

    I liked the game mechanisms, graphical, voice acting, etc.
    But I didn't like the way the story flow. (chapter by chapter)

    You are thrown in the middle of nowhere, doing things that you don't understand why, and you complete the game still not understanding everything.
    there's no back story. you play only a part of a bigger scheme/world which you never explore. You doesn't start at the beginning of this world's problem, but at the end.

    It was still a good an enjoyable game, but I felt like it was missing something.
    I'm used to play RPG where you start your adventure as a random guy, and little by little you understand your surrounding better and eventually find a goal in your adventure.

    Hmmm, sounds like someone would like a prequel - The First Story, perhaps.

    now the next question is: do this release still have the loading problems like the PAL and JAP version (including disc read errors, and freezing gameplay)
