10Classic!

This Godlike Game has to be at least one of the top 5 most underrated games in existence. To me it has the single best story EVER in anygame i've ever played period! Every facet of human existence is expressed in it's story. Love, Hate, Loyalty, Religion, Understanding, Misunderstand, Rumours, Comedy, Drama, Reincarnation, The Multi-Universe concept, Sex, Family...& this is just the tip of the iceberg. Soild in every way The challenges are perfectly balanced, the characters are unforgettable, the music fits every part perfect, above most RPGs it's FUN from the get go. To me it blows every Snes RPG straight into the moom of Jupiter. It's even a deeper overall package then the Mighty Final Fantasy VII which I Love but to me this is IT!

9.5Classic!

There is a reason why this game is at the top of my JRPG list. The Story is the best Ive ever seen in a JRPG, the characters are fascinating, the music fits in perfectly and the game play draws you in for hours. I highly recommend to those who have never played the game to try it, its slow at first but it really builds up to some great game play.

10Classic!

What a game, what a long, happy-experience I've had with this game. The story, the characters, great themes, this came out during a booming era in RPGs, on a king of them, the Playstation. Now while I really found myself more attached to Final Fantasy, Xenogears told me that SquareSoft was the best Japanese RPG developer ever in all ways (Of course that's definetly not true now, Square Enix but it was back then). While it may have some dated aspects in the production values in the latter disc, Xenogears sure as hell kept you hooked. This can spin in my Playstation any time, because it certainly can't spin in my Nintendo 64!

8.0Great

Initially, Xenogears' references to the works of Freud, Nietzsche, and others appear to be quite impressive. However, they remain just that - references. Xenogears doesn't seem to have anything in particular to actually say about any of those works. Dialogue often drags a bit, and the narrative pacing is generally a bit dubious. Another thing that's dubious about it is the English translation. Fortunately the game's story is able to stand up on its other merits. The characterization is quite solid, although a few characters could have used more screen time, and the plot is interesting and creative enough. It has a great soundtrack that works well with individual scenes' tone and emotion.

3.5Meh

I recently played this game expecting something great from all the hype, and found nothing but a sub-par RPG that doesn't deserve the praise that it always gets. The story's boring, the characters boring, and the gameplay simply unbearable at times.

7.0Good

Xenogears is an RPG about big dreams. The gargantuan plot tries to tie together a dramatic tale about an epic, drawn out war with giant robot. The developers built up every individual character with tearjerking moments. The game's second half rushes too quickly through the remainder of the war, but it still has plenty of touching moments. Overall, Xenogears is terribly flawed, but it still packs enough of a punch to surprise people at the end.

10Classic!

This game was essentially the best thing to come across for an RPG. Plus the fact I'm a huge mecha fan, giant robots being a staple part of the story is a giant plus. I find the story very engaging once you get immediately into it, in similar vein I find anime like Evangelion and RahXephon enjoyable at the end of the day. It's like this giant mix of things that are good all wrapped up into one neat little package. Of course this game may not be for everyone since the story may tend to be a bit on the wordy side and things don't pick up to speed for a good few hours. But once you get into the meat & potatoes of Xenogears, you won't regret playing it.

Play Xenogears to be blown away by a story. Its a turn based JRPG but a really good one and its so well paced and well scripted. From the start to the very end there's plot twist after plot twist. The game just keeps opening up to reveal a much bigger one. I felt like this should have be a much bigger release than it was but its cult game nether the less. I really can't put into words how good it is. The fact that i played this game for 68 hours straight (yes 68) should give you an idea.
