Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Review: Another Masterpiece

By GamesRecon

As far as RPGs go, Xenoblade Chronicles has the most ridiculous settings and storylines I’ve ever encountered. Improved fighting, mission layout, and the RPG sandbox everything has been refined and added to Xenoblade Chronicles 3 while maintaining its ridiculous surroundings, fantastic characters, and confusing tale. In addition to improving on the earlier franchise titles, this latest installment also introduces several new features that elevate the incredible voyage to new heights of enjoyment. However, many previous flaws are repeated here again, like poor characters and visuals that frequently fall short of expectations. In spite of this, these factors don’t make the game weak, and still, it is the best of its previous editions. Below is our detailed Xenoblade Chronicles 3 review, so read out what we like and what has disappointed us in the game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s odd notion creates the groundwork for a 100-hour adventure across a captivating universe that features excellent characters and engaging action. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has many of its moments to enjoy and its bold concept gives its fans an emotional climax. Aionios is a fictional country in which the states of Keves and Agnus are constantly at war over resources. Not having access to such items could mean the difference between life and death. Any fallen soldier’s life essence is channeled into the Ferronis, a massive mech that serves as a command post for the enemy. In order for one side to win, it is necessary that the life power of dead troops is preserved.

It’s all Aionios’ people are trained for. They are given extensive training at a young age and are required to serve 10 years of tenure in the armed forces. In the event that they are capable of completing the term, the queen whisks them away in a light cloud. On the other hand, the majority of troops are able to make it past their 10-year mark. Therein lies a key role for our main character Noah. To honor fallen warriors, Off-Seer Flutists like Noah play their flutes. There are no prerequisites for this narrative, so it’s free to anyone who hasn’t experienced a Xenoblade RPG previously. The Xenoblade Chronicles series is obviously referenced, although it isn’t necessary to consider any old edition. It seemed to be an excellent pleasure for gamers who are part of this franchise from the earlier titles.

Aside from some excellent storytelling and world-building in this strange and wonderful tale, it suffers from a lack of writing style, as the characters repeat having similar plot points and concepts in an effort to make the game’s message clear. While the topics and personalities are usually interesting, they are rarely conveyed in a sense that is polished and effective. Only one statement can sometimes do the same thing which is finalized in three extended cutscenes in the game. This is not to mention how many cliches have been crammed into this story. It was compounded by certain serious pace issues, such as one segment that had you stay underground to complete mundane duties, or the other that had you traverse a large part of the globe to acquire metal components.

Despite its being full of possibilities, the hectic pace of Xenoblade’s fighting can obscure much of its finer points. Choosing the appropriate pace and manipulating the numbers may make Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s battle an enjoyable experience. Another alternative is to play it casually; there are a number of settings, such as Easy mode and the opportunity to auto-battle via all characters until the boss, so you can relax a while and have your team progress through the journey.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is an enjoyable experience

Irrespective of how deep you go into mechanics or how smooth you go, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is an enjoyable experience that’s tied to an overall sense of exploration and discovery. Several great JRPGs share this quality, with immediacy to the tale that is propelled by the six protagonists and the repeating elements of the Xenoblade saga. When it comes to Xenoblade Chronicles 3, you’ll need to break the pendulum clocks of the countless Agnus and Keves settlements you’ll encounter on this journey.

No game is without its surprises, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 does not disappoint in this regard. Although I won’t go into details, I can tell you that a number of those are excellent and offer new elements in the title, whereas some are so familiar that it’s hard to enjoy them. How it ties up loose ends from the original Xenoblade Chronicles and the sequel is what actually makes the tale stand out.  This is a game that can be enjoyed by both new gamers and long-time series enthusiasts. That wildness that connects Xenoblade Chronicles is one of my favorite aspects of the series, and it’s even more abundant in this latest entry. You can not help but be amazed by Aionos, a breathtaking assortment of unimaginably wide places with breathtaking extraterrestrial scenery.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a superb JRPG featuring great scenes, a fascinating environment, and addicting strategic gameplay that is still exciting even after spending 100-150 hours finishing it. Classes can be swapped out at will, and the new Interlink Ouroburos mechanisms preserve the battles feeling fresh throughout the entire journey. The story is also fun to read all the way around, despite the fact that it is bloated and has several wandering turns. This game finally launched after so much hard work and effort made by the developers. This game’s narrative and fighting more than help compensates for whatever flaws in the conversation department that it may have.
