i've noticed that just about everyone anywhere is just about praising this game for everything thats in it. everywhere on youtube, everywhere on NLife, game has glowing reviews, EVERYWHERE, etc. i knew absolutely nothing about the game before i bought it because i avoided the reviews and didn't let anyone spoil the game for me because i might play it. and i bought it yesterday at gamestop ($90 used WTF). and i... honestly, is it THAT good? combat is okay, i can't complain about it, but the script is atrocious, and the voice acting is not that good. i've made some progress in the game, not too much, but those two things bugged me right off the bat. but i must ask, is the game that good? no spoilers please, if its required to spoil the game to explain, just say something like, "keep playing and you'll see."

you're wrong and should feel bad: voice acting. And it has the japanese voice acting available anyway.

the script is not atrocious and I can't even say this as a joke, you are just wrong. I've seen muuuuuuuuch worse quite easily in gaming. Occasionally they'll be a moment that's a little too cliched and cheesey but otherwise its fine.

Combat gets better the more you get into it I feel.

are you listening to the same dubbing i'm listening to? because i don't think you are. the dubbing is pretty awful, at least from what i've seen. and i've seen script and voice acting in modern games muuuuuuuuuch better than this. i mean, its not as bad as say Mario Sunshine, but its nowhere near as good as what i've heard from several other modern games.

The voice acting is rather "love it/hate it" from my understanding. If you can't bear it, switch to Japanese. Keep in mind, this game didn't have an endless pool of cash to use, so don't expect AAA. The game itself is fantastic, my personal favorite, but you can't expect perfection.

I know it's not really related to the game itself, but does anyone know if you can play this game with the Pro Controller on the Wii U? I really don't like the wii mote.

I for one loved the voice acting. It was so different then other games I am used too. I checked out the Japanese track for a minute and couldn't stand it.

The Wii U pro controller doesn't work with Wii games, get a Wii classic controller pro.

I found Xenoblade today for only $50! The Gamestop that I found it in apparently has 6. XD

Yeah, it's not nearly as hard to find anymore and the price has come down dramatically. That's why I recently got Prime Trilogy.
