Some parts are so story heavy you literally watch a 30 minute story scene, take 5 steps, and sit through one that's another 30-40 minutes. Still was a pretty decent game. One thing that bothered me a little bit was once you get a feel for the combat system it feels repetitive, further compounded by the number of battles in long areas of the same monsters. This is from what I remember about the battles in the first game though.it does feel like a movie at points though so I hope you don't mind sitting through lots of story.
I think it's a pretty mediocre game in term of gameplay, and yes, get all three or none at all, the third game is the best one, doesn't mean that the other two was bad though, it's just... mediocre... imo.
That's what they said about the first one as well (Xenogears), but the person who put in the random encounters should be shot for ruining what otherwise would've been a great game. I'm still pissed off for not having been able to complete the game due to those making the game terribly repetitive.It's all about the story.
haha, poor you, im on the same shoes as you, i played xenosaga 2 first... which is quite a crazy thing to do,considering how insanely complex the story is.lol I think I might pick up the trilogy. I played the second disc and liked it, and you guys are citing it as the worst disc so I might as well buy the series.
I don't remember it being that bad an encounter rate, but I think because the battles were fun enough to play, I was okay with it. Or I kept running away. I can't remember.That's what they said about the first one as well (Xenogears), but the person who put in the random encounters should be shot for ruining what otherwise would've been a great game.

not a movie but an anime based on episode 1 the plot is brilliantI just played it again a few months ago and the encounter rate isn't bad at all. It's pretty much inline with other games of the time.
It is a RPG after all, not a movie.
But yeah xenosaga's plot is one convoluted story. I wish we'd see the whole Xeno saga put into action.
And as far as I recall, Xenogears was the 5th out of a planned 6 (don't know how they could follow the ending with a 6th one though).
