I've played a bit of both, and honestly... ya. Chrono Trigger is just in a whole other league.

But I suppose if we never played games unless they're better than similar titles in backlog, we'd never play anything new at all lol

It looks wonderful... I'll get it when I buy the Switch, to have an option if Zelda starts burning me out. Although I still have BD in my backlog...

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 2

This turned out to be one of the most boring JRPs I've ever played. I've actually traded this in before defeating the final boss, because I just could not care anymore.

Personally, I got really into it. I'm really random with RPG's, too: sometimes I love them and become addicted (FF9, Eternal Sonata), and sometimes I can't bring myself to finish 25% of the story (FF7, Blue Dragon).

But I loved this one. Disclaimer: There is really NOTHING new about this game. It's very retro in what it tries to do:
-Combat is turn-based, ATB (basically, with a small twist that you can "save" up turns for more powerful attacks)
-Spells and skills are very standard RPG fare
-Beginning is a tad slow, you get to the overworld, you eventually get an airship
-Environments are NOT very diverse. Lots of snow and lots of techy-looking dungeons.
-Sound is EXCELLENT, I think. A couple really touching piano pieces in there.

Very classic all-around. Took me a little over 20 hours to beat with a bit of side exploration, but I still need to complete a few of the legendary weapon quests.

I thought the story and characters were pretty good, though I am a sucker for this type of plot line (think FF10). Some of the characters are better-developed than others, but I liked it. I will say, it does feel almost like a "mini RPG," like not a full Final Fantasy game. And I think the devs were going for that. It's obviously not quite as long as a standard "full" game, but I believe it's on purpose. I found the difficulty to be just fine, maybe a tad on the easy side. There are some high-stakes boss battles that set you back quite a bit if you lose. I did do some grinding, though enemies don't level up with you, so low-level areas become useless for grinding after awhile.

I haven't played it, my only problem is that it's not out on retail here in EU, so I'm still considering importing.

I know it has a snow themed world, and that wouldn't be a problem as well. For some people it would lack variety. For me it is variety as I have never played an RPG story in a completely cold and icy world.
The piano tracks are fantastic and remind me of Chrono Trigger. This and the fact it's an RPG are the main reasons I want the game.

I think this is the perfect game for Winter, so if it's not out in the EU by then I look into import prices.

@SKTTR I imported it and it's quite good if you are into classic rpg's with a new coat of paint. I do not regret it at all.

Is the game challenging? - I used exactly 2 types of special attacks to kill everything in this game, including bosses. The "rare" enemies are tough, though, but you can just ignore them and they do not worth the trouble anyway.

Is the story remotely emotional? - Nope.

How long did it take people to complete this title? - I really do not see the point in this question. There are games that only last like 30 minutes and are totally awesome while there are games that last hundreds of hours and just **** hard. No one judges books and movies by their length either. Just imagine, "I think Batman vs. Superman is superior to the Tim Burton Batman because the running time is waaay longer."

It is like an indie game that wants to be the next Chrono Trigger without realizing what made Chrono Trigger great (great story, characters, music, multiple endings, combat...)

@Masurao

to me the story is a bit emotional.. (seems like they take a leaf out of FFX ??) very similar to FFX story.

great music soundtrack but it's too repetitive. You will get sick halfway through the game listening to the piano music.

lack of variety of monsters - bascially there are quite a lot with color swap and stronger stats.

techs/double combos/triple combos - too many ( need unique, cool looking tech/double/triple combos) many are just a variation of it. most are lackluster in damage.

Accessories - way too many ( most are not that useful, only a handful are useful)

good thing i like about this jrpg is your weapons are never obsolete, you can upgrade them to their max potential unlike many other jrpgs, you will ditch the old ones for better newer weapons.

overall the difficulty is too easy, i one or two shot the final boss. not much end game content..

only thing left to do is to 100% snow book chronicles and mix max all your characters (which i feel pointless to do so, since there is not much end/post game content to tackle) unless you feel good to do millions of damage to the monsters.

@Swordsman83 I didn’t think the story was too emotional. I mean it had its moments but BOTW rakes it for me. Still a good game though to revisit.

Anyone playing this game?
I'm debating about picking it up since I am in a mode for a turn based rpg and its on sale. Decent reviews on youtube.

I really enjoyed it. Not terribly long, so no big commitment with tons of grinding. Classic JRPG with a pretty good story.

Its on sale now as well

Good to know.
I was debating about picking it up, but just went back to Witcher.
