unlike 2, xenoblade chronicles 3 isn't so horny as to be embarrassing to play. in fact the game seems to have very little, if any, interest in leering at the characters. it's a breath of fresh air
the game is full of interesting intersecting mechanics that actually work together. some may say xenoblade games tend to have systems bloat but i say the more the merrier lol as long as they work.
the characters are all super amazing and lovable. i can't say whether i like story or not yet because these games' stories are real slow burns, but as of now i believe i'm in the late early game and i'm picking up what they're putting down.
compared to the first game, xenoblade x and xenoblade 2 were kind of let-downs (though there's a lot to love about x despite it's awkward parts). 3 might finally surpass it as my fav of the series.
