Tales of Xillia 2

PlayStation 3


The original Tales of Xillia won me over with the mature issues it tackled and the enhancements to the series' real-time battle system and overall structure. This sequel continues to build on its interesting characters while adding some new gameplay features, but Tales of Xillia 2 stumbles compared to its predecessor. Tales of Xillia 2's issues first appear in the pacing; the plot starts slow, taking about 10 hours to get interesting. Part of this is due to a debt-paying mechanic introduced early to get players to engage with the side content and to better prepare for the challenging battles
