Xenoblade Chronicles X is required playing for anyone with the slightest inclination toward RPGs, and if you need to buy the system then do it. It’s an essential part of the Wii U library.

Nintendo Enthusiast (Nov 30, 2015)
That is because ultimately, in what the game tries to do, it succeeds completely: it creates an incredible, breathtaking, awe-inspiring world that is an absolute joy to run around in, to fight in, to collect in, to look around in, to be in. It may not have done so flawlessly, but Xenoblade Chronicles X gave me one of the finest worlds gaming has to offer, and it populated that world with incredible things to do. You have the option to be a part of that world as well. And while you should not expect perfection or anything near it, I can say with absolute certainty that you should play Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Xenoblade Chronicles X ist ein unverschämter Zeitfresser! Das Erkunden des Planeten Mira macht unglaublich viel Spaß und ist sehr motivierend. Das Einzige, was ich dem Spiel gravierend vorwerfen kann, ist, dass es dem Spieler viel abverlangt und den Einstieg schwer macht. Darüber hinaus werdet ihr ein epochales Abenteuer erleben, das mit dem Vorgänger fast auf Augenhöhe ist!

Xenoblade Chronicles X lässt sich in zwei Teile spalten: Den mit und den ohne Mech. Wunderschön und abwechslungsreich sind sie aber trotzdem

A content-rich sci-fi adventure that diverges from its predecessor in unexpected but delightful ways.

The Jimquisition (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is not so much “deep” as it is complex – a rich spider’s web of interconnected activities that will take hours to fully comprehend. Work is involved in fully grasping this whole show, but once you’ve finally sorted things out and taken advantage of the game’s ginormous virtual manual, there’s a wonderfully absorbing adventure lying in wait.

Game Rant (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the prettier games on Nintendo’s Wii U console, and it’s a standout addition to the platform’s library. Setting aside the learning curve for newcomers and an astute lack of immediate aid from the game itself, the title offers fans a massive world that they’ll easily get lost in. The detail in every portion of it is admirable, and the story (while lacking a central character as likeable as Shulk) is engaging enough to merit trucking through. Even the core battle mechanics are engaging, and the scale of all of these elements will suck up countless hours of any gamer’s time. This could very well be considered the largest title ever published by Nintendo, and it stands tall alongside some of the system’s finest.

God is a Geek (Nov 30, 2015)
I have enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles X so much that I am planning to start it all over again from the beginning, so I can really take my time with this absolutely gargantuan adventure, and I rarely feel that way about any game, let alone one I’ve been playing almost non-stop for a month. This is an essential purchase for all Wii U owners who love the JRPG genre.

The Escapist (Nov 30, 2015)
An accessible ambassador for its genre, Xenoblade Chronicles X makes good choices building a world, but stumbles on writing you a guidebook to it.

Digital Chumps (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a boundless exhibition of the relationship between scale and structure, and its myriad of frenzied ideas are willed into cohesion only by the congruence of its supporting systems. Xenoblade Chronicles X may be obsessed with scale (and proudly so), but it doesn't leave the player feeling consumed by it.

Cheat Code Central (Dec 10, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is the ultimate game about exploring and conquering a hostile alien planet. Its design hitches, though occasionally annoying, simply cannot take away from the triumph that is the planet Mira and its fantastic creatures. There are literally hundreds of hours of potential gameplay here, but even if you don't tackle everything, getting to know Mira is exciting, full of breathtaking surprises, and downright fun. If you find the patience to get over its learning curve, Xenoblade Chronicles X will reward that patience with a wealth of memorable experiences.

TheSixthAxis (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a genuinely enthralling game. It doesn’t take it easy on you though, and the perseverance and attention required may override the spectacle and beauty found here. Fans of the last game may also struggle with the tonal and technical shift, but if you want to experience one of the most involving, creative and expansive open worlds ever created, Xenoblade Chronicles X is essential.

Nintendo Life (Nov 30, 2015)
Occasional bottlenecks are infrequent and easily overcome in the broader experience, and overall Xenoblade Chronicles X delivers a hugely impressive RPG adventure. It's an enormous accomplishment for Monolith Soft and an irresistible part of the Wii U library.

Gaming Nexus (Dec 23, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a landmark achievement in RPGs unmatched in depth, scope and beauty. While it suffers from a few common RPG issues like grind and fetch-quests, the overall quality of the experience far exceeds anything in competitors like recent Final Fantasy or Elder Scrolls titles. If you have the courage, Xenoblade Chronicles X offers a quest hundreds of hours long and rich in unforgettable moments.

Nintendo-Online.de (Nov 30, 2015)
„Xenoblade Chronicles X“ bietet vor allem denjenigen ein unvergessliches Abenteuer, die gerne neue Welten erkunden. So schön, so fantasievoll, und so riesig sind nur wenige Spielwelten! Auch die Kämpfe, die Story, die tolle Multiplayer-Einbindung und vieles drumherum sorgen für unzählige Stunden Unterhaltung. Doch kleine Mankos wie die Pflicht-Nebenmissionen zum Fortschreiten in der Story drücken ab und an ein wenig auf den Spielspaß.

4Players.de (Dec 01, 2015)
Klar, hätte einiges besser, eleganter oder komfortabler umgesetzt werden können. Vor allem das stumm geschaltete Alter-Ego sowie die mitunter problematische Kamera, Schriftgröße und Zielerfassung blieben negativ in Erinnerung. Auch die Online-Anbindung hätte noch weitreichender ausfallen können. Aber die Begeisterung über die prachtvollen Kulissen und deren imposanten Bewohner ließ den Ärger meist schnell wieder vergessen. Auch das GamePad wurde clever genutzt, die Aufgabenstellungen breit gefächert. Man war Entdecker, Sammler und Jäger in einem, Pionier und Konstrukteur, Organisator und Vermittler, Kamerad und Anführer und spätestens als Skell-Pilot unsterblich in seinen Job verliebt. Diesem beeindruckenden und geheimnisvollen Abenteuerspielplatz sollte wirklich jeder mit Wii U einen Besuch abstatten.

Destructoid (Nov 30, 2015)
This is one of the more interesting reviews I've done as of late because I know Xenoblade Chronicles X will be divisive. But it truly feels like an MMO world I've been living in for several weeks now. The more grimdark theme isn't quite as charming as the original Xenoblade, but everything else makes up for it.

MAN!AC (Jan 22, 2016)
Die Figuren sind sympathisch, die Abenteuer episch und an Inhalt wird beim RPG auch nicht gespart – ein großer Spaß nicht nur für Serienkenner.

GamingNerd (Jan 05, 2016)
Insgesamt fühlte ich mich bei meiner Reise über den Planeten Mira gut unterhalten, während ich mir auf inszenatorischer Seite etwas mehr Mühe bei der Erzählung der Geschichte gewünscht hätte. Ich werde wohl noch einige Stunden in meinen Skells verbringen und fleißig craften, meine BLADE-Kampftruppe optimieren und weitere Überwachungssonden installieren, da ich diese als die größten Stärken des Spiels empfand. Für Spieler die nur eine Wii U besitzen, ist Xenoblade Chronicles X mangels Alternativen ein Pflichtkauf. Multikonsoleros, die gerne mal einen intergalaktischen Columbus mit Mechs im Anime-Look spielen wollten, werden hier ebenfalls glücklich.

Kein absoluter Superhit, aber immer noch ein fantastisches Rollenspiel für Wii U!

Gigantischer Umfang und epochale Spielwelt mit zahlreichen komplexen Ideen. Großartiges Spiel, jedoch nicht frei von Mängeln.

Girl Gamers UK (Jan 18, 2016)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is by no means a perfect game. The soundtrack is questionable, the story is not hugely involving and the various missions are quite often dull. But it is easy to get past these faults once the player is confronted with the massive open-world, which is ripe for exploration. While not suited to all Wii U gamers, RPG fans will need Xenoblade Chronicles X in their collection.

Lazygamer (Dec 17, 2015)
Once you get used to all the mechanics, you’ll find yourself, and even though it can get really frustrating at times, Xenoblade Chronicles X remains engrossing even after dozens of hours of play. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’m really feeling it!

Gamer.nl (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is als een onstuimige kinderdroom waarin grote robots, dinosaurussen en aliens allemaal samenkomen op een planeet vol wilde en adembenemende locaties. Het klinkt idioot, maar het werkt uitstekend. Nou ja, op wat kleine misstappen na dan.

InsideGamer (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is geen reuze-stap voorwaarts zoals Xenoblade op de Wii dat wel was. Desondanks maakt het enorme indruk met een fenomenale, uitgestrekte speelwereld in de hoofdrol. Het resultaat is een Japans rollenspel dat uitdagend en verfrissend genoeg is voor spelers die graag iets anders willen proberen binnen het genre. De game is een klassieker in wording op de Wii U en absoluut een van de beste JRPG’s van de afgelopen jaren.

XGN (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X stapt dapper in de boksring en geldt als de belangrijkste tegenstander voor The Witcher 3 als het gaat om de prijs voor rpg van het jaar. Alles in deze grandioze opvolger straalt liefde, ambitie en passie uit. Zo is de spelwereld (opnieuw) onbeschrijfelijk mooi, biedt het vechtsysteem voldoende spanning en afwisseling en valt er zoveel te ontdekken en te verkennen dat Xenoblade in het ruim tachtig uur durende (onvergetelijke!) avontuur geen moment inkakt. Daar veranderen enkele pietepeuterige schoonheidsfoutjes helemaal niets aan. Wie dit najaar op zoek is naar een grote klapper voor de Wii U is bij Xenoblade Chronicles X aan het enige en juiste adres.

Video Chums (Dec 20, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a great RPG that makes investing in a Wii U a no-brainer for fans of the genre. Even though I personally prefer Wii's Xeno adventure, I can't deny how awe-inspiring of a journey this was.

IGN (Dec 07, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is a massive RPG with enough surface area, sub quests, and customization to keep you busy for many hours. It took me 73 hours to finish the main story and there's still lots of things to do. The presentation can feel stiff and awkward at times, but the satisfying loop of combat and customization makes exploring the vast world of Mira a fun and rewarding experience.

RPG Site (Dec 14, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the most ambitious games ever made. It easily earns a crowning achievement in what it manages to do on the Wii U. Even though I'm 100+ hours in, there's still so much to do after the main story is done. There's always more to do in this game and even though it feels overwhelming at first, players will find themselves lost in the world of Mira if they're willing to invest a massive amount of time into it. Xenoblade Chronicles X has its share of faults and is a vast departure from the formula that Xeno-games are known for, but it also brings an amazingly large adventure for RPG fans on the Wii U.

Digitally Downloaded (Dec 24, 2015)
I enjoyed my time with Xenoblade Chronicles X a great deal. I found the combat highly engaging and every new ridge I would climb up provided me with such breathtakingly beautiful vistas that I would sit there simply slow panning around to take it all in. But at the same time, undercooked narrative has hurt the really long-term value of the game, and it was just a little too in love with the more arbitrary and irritating quirks of MMO design for its own good.
80
All of that aside, the sheer number of ways to custom tailor the experience, the wonderful combat, the inclusion of an astounding multiplayer mode and the compelling, massive world that’s presented make it one of the Wii U’s best games as well as one of 2015’s most complete RPGs. It may not be the follow-up that hardcore Xenoblade Chronicles fans were hoping for, but it’s a worthy sequel all the same — just one that marches to the beat of its own drum. Its unflinching tendency to do things that were not part of its predecessor’s legacy will solidify it as not only its own game, but the best role-playing experience on Wii U.

GameSpot (Nov 30, 2015)
Mira and its inhabitants are awe-inspiring, and experiencing everything X has to offer is a monumental and rewarding task. It makes the journey consistently interesting by giving you intricate control over your characters' abilities and gear, and by offering a wealth of new toys to play with as time goes on. You will roll your eyes at characters, and bemoan the unnecessary story padding, but these frustrations are quickly forgotten when you head into the wilderness in search of unexplored territory and unforeseen challenges. X is a grand adventure that satiates your appetite for exploration and combat in ways that few games ever do, but because getting started is half the battle, it’s an experience reserved for dedicated players who have the patience and energy to unearth its greatest treasures.

Impulse Gamer (Dec 17, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X isn’t a JRPG for everyone, but it’s definitely still a technical marvel and enjoyable game. Its open-world planet of Mira is undeniably massive, full of things to gawk at and engage with and beautiful artistic direction and environments to get lost in. The combat mechanics, while too MMO in structure for me, were engaging and tactical for the most part, and the high level of cosmetic customisation made my silent character and Skell feel like my own. However, meaningful quest content, more involved role-playing choices and a better story than its predecessor are arguably lacking, and I wish these areas were stronger in conjunction with its excellent exploration emphasis. If you loved the gameplay from the first Xenoblade Chronicles and can look past a less involved main story, as well as invest 25+ hours before you even acquire basic gameplay mechanics (Overdrive, Skells), X will definitely resonate with you more in the long-run than it did with me.

NZGamer (Dec 17, 2015)
In the end XCX fails to deliver the same experience that the original laid out for it. Story progression is weak, characters are weaker, and the game spends too much time getting you to focus on seeing the world instead of experiencing it. There were times where I’d put this down so I could go and play Xenoblade Chronicles 3D on the 3DS. Despite that, I keep going back to it, and I keep enjoying what’s there. XCX simply doesn’t deserve to be as fun as it is, but the satisfying battle system and the amazing creatures that roam the landscape both pull me back in against my will, and I love it.

Legendra (Jan 31, 2016)
Pas facile de donner une note à un tel jeu, capable de se montrer aussi génial que débile d'un instant à l'autre. S'il est tentant de comparer les deux jeux de la licence Xenoblade (voire de pousser jusqu'aux autres Xeno) comme je le fais depuis le début de l'article, on s'aperçoit vite qu'ils reposent sur des concepts radicalement différents. La préférence du joueur et son appréciation du jeu tiendront donc de l'histoire de goût de chacun. On peut tout de même regretter que XCX n'ait pas poussé son concept aussi loin qu'il aurait pu, s'embarrassant de mécaniques au rabais plutôt que de peindre un scénario et des personnages à la hauteur du gigantisme de son monde.
75
Xenoblade Chronicles X has a hard time providing a tale suitable for the massive world and complex systems that occupy it, but even the most fairweather RPG fans will need little convincing to pick up this Japanese addition to the open-world genre.

GamesRadar (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X offers a resplendent world, fantastic combat, and transforming mechs, but figuring out how everything fits together isn't always easy.

We Got This Covered (Nov 30, 2015)
Despite being a bit too ambitious for its own good, Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the most impressive Wii U titles ever released. While it may be rough around the edges, players are in for an enjoyable, albeit frustrating, time.

Polygon (Nov 30, 2015)
Xenoblade Chronicles X finds itself in a constant struggle between scale and bloat. When I crested over the game's first mountaintop and saw a dinosaur drinking from a lake in the valley below, it was amazing — one of those rare video game moments that can be described as "epic" without hyperbole. But the UI is just one example of how X gets in its own way, hiding its beautiful world beneath overly complicated and under-explained systems that just don't add enough. Monolith Soft has once more created something special under the Xenoblade name; it just happens to have buried that something special under a mountain of annoyances.
