The hype from those in the know is that this is one of the greatest RPGs of the generation.

I am a huge Monolith Soft fan. They created the classic Baten Kaitos series. What really sold me on Monolith is that I absolutely hated the idea of cards for combat, then I played it and found it to be one of my favorite combat systems ever!

They also created Xenosaga, which has a lot of fans. I loved Xenosaga as well.

Xenoblade is only available at Gamestop and through Nintendo of America's online site. NOA was iffy about translating, so this is probably a product of that.


Anyone else buying this when it comes out on April 6?

Got this yesterday.

Some quick thoughts before I put together a full review:

VERY user friendly. You can save almost anywhere, you can warp around to locations you've already visited to save time.. among others

The story so far is intriguing.. the best part is, so far at least, they are trying to tell one little story.. they are not throwing a million different parts of their made up universe at us at once (FF13, Xenosaga) but instead just focusing on a small portion of the bigger picture.

Graphics are probably the biggest downfall, they are great for the Wii, but after playing a slick game like FF13-2 it's hard to go back when you know this is a new release.

I think they made the interface controls for the WIImote pretty good, even though there are a lot of complaints about this.

Overall, after a few hours in, I can see why this has been heralded as a great RPG of the generation. Monolith Soft has rarely disappointed me, and this is another great game by them.
