I want this game, but am unsure. I love classic JRPGs , but am not a fan of the early Wii graphics or still high price point. Is it worth it?

My video game arrangements (sheet music for piano)
Most Recently Arranged: The Visitor (BD), Final Battle (Sacred Stones), and An Earnest Desire of Grey.
In progress: Following Stanley (8/20)

Early Wii graphics? This game came late and looks amazing! If you love RPGs then what are you waiting for!? Go get it as if your life depends on it!

It came out very early in the cycle in Japan. The graphics were not improved for the localizations

To be fair, the game has a huge open world. So obliviously Monolith did its best with the way the game looks.

Wii released in Japan December 2, 2006.
Xenoblade released in Japan June 10, 2010.
I wouldn't call 3.5 years into the Wii life cycle "very early"... but graphics are a mixed bag for this game. Character models and textures are rather poor, but the grand scope and overall art direction is pretty impressive in my opinion.

This game has really been on my mind lately. It seems early for a replay of a 100+ hour title... but might have to move it to the top of my backlog (again) and try out the new game+ mode. Or maybe map out the remaining secret corners of Tephra Cave. Or see if I can upgrade Colony 9 further. Or... well, you get the point.

Is it worth the high price? For me, definitely. Anytime I spend hundreds of hours paying and still want to go back for more that's a fantastic sign.

Play this game on your Wii U and that helps. I wasn't really bothered by the graphics.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

It's a GREAT game, though I HAVE had to use GeckoOS for invincibility for both Mumkhar battles, and the big Mechon battle with Fiora. Absolutely LOVE Riki!

Definitely looking forward to Xenoblade Chronicles X!

Late reply but you probably could have just leveled up a little more and the battles become a lot easier.

Gamestop just got another batch of "used" Xenoblade Chronicles copies that are being sold for $49.99 so if you want to purchase the game now's the time! I doubt that there will be any more reprints after this one. ;)

The game looks awful on an HDTV, but the scope of the world is, indeed, impressive. It's fun if you pretend you're playing a PS2 game.
