It can be said that since its first part, Xenoblade Chronicles has always strived to become a masterpiece of the JRPG series on the Switch. And with the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 I can say that they have accomplished their goal.
This Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has a darker start than the previous installments of the series when the world of Aionios that players will explore is being torn apart by the two nations of Agnus and Keves in a never-ending war. Speaking of which, do you think the two countries fight for resources? Food? But no they literally fight for their existence. For every life the soldiers on the battlefield won, the life meter on their side would fill up one more time to help maintain the existence of the whole country. But if you think they just need to kill enough to get immortal life, you’re wrong episode two. Each soldier of the two factions only has 10 years to live (in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 called Term). After surviving for 10 years, they will return to meet the leader of their faction to be sent off in a special way. We will follow Noah, a black sheep of the kingdom of Keves, he will and his teammates on both sides find a way to destroy this endless loop to save everyone in the world. The plot has a rather dark beginning with countless knots that make the game difficult to convey through normal wing cuts, so similar to the previous two parts, they chose to use high-quality Cinematic clips to convey. Full load of emotional messages. I was really surprised to know that the total duration of these cinematic clips is up to more than 10 hours, each segment is extremely carefully invested from the smallest details such as shooting angle, zooming to segmentation. Set the appropriate time to keep gamers interested so that I spent several hours on this game which is not good.
The game’s story is already great, but the gameplay is even better because the combat system in the game is so vast and deep, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 combines almost every element that the RPG genre can have in it. such as the character class system, gems, combo moves, …. Fortunately, the game does not try to present everything to you at once, instead it will divide it into many different small stages, which makes it difficult to see even after playing the game for a few hours. Several manuals appear. This makes it easier for new players to access the game but does not make old gamers bored because they can use all the features right from the start, but to use it well, it is necessary to read the documentation. briefly what was. Typically, in terms of Combat game, there are many different things for you to grasp such as arts, master arts, fusion arts, interlinking, chain attacks, combos, etc. At first you will find them extremely confusing but gradually gradually Once we get used to it, everything is great, especially the feeling when we can combine everything to launch an attack with huge damage to defeat difficult opponents is indescribable. Besides the combat system, the way to build the Aionios world and the mission system in the game is also a big plus. When you explore every corner in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, you not only come to admire the scenery and then defeat the monsters inside, this is also an opportunity for you to understand more about the other characters in the group. Simply let them find hidden items scattered throughout the game’s vast map. Exploring the game has also become easier than before the game maker has greatly improved the navigation system, the quest menu and the map are also more clearly displayed so you can easily find the best direction to go. locations you need. Moving back and forth on the large map area does not make me too boring because there are many things to do, most of all, I feel quite relaxed when Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has many very melodious tracks that can It’s good for the morale, but these songs also transition very quickly to the next epics giving me a lot of fire to put the moves together.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 can be said to be very good, but the game is not really perfect, one thing I regret very much because the game was released on the Switch system, so the image in the game has many limitations, even though the enemy character model is very beautiful. but the game’s exterior has many rather sketchy areas, especially areas with many giant monsters. The game also encountered some criticism from gamers when playing in handheld mode, it was not very optimized with a lot of jagged edges, the frame was also unstable in epic scenes. If the above problems do not hinder you too much, never ignore Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
