I rather enjoyed it. My hope is that they will remake the game after Xenosaga Ep V comes out. Though I have no issue playing the classics, I've been spoiled by the eye candy of today's games and thusly have been finding older games less and less attractive to play.

Little known fact about the game though.

It was actually meant to be much longer , but half of the development team got pulled to work on another project , so they had to cop out and abridge the second disc


too bad about that. i am guessing that they didn't know that it would be such a hit, and made perfect works to follow up on the missed parts

*spoiler to thoses who have not played or finished Xenogears*
actually Xenosaga has almost no connection w/ Xenogears, aside from the Zohar and a few terms, Xenogears has pretty much a completely different story. Xenogears was created by Squaresoft(current day SquareEnix). But when Konami bought the rights to Xenogears, they got the writer of Xenogears to make Xenosaga. but the writer said that Xenosaga was a completely different story. so contrary to popular belief, Xenosaga is not a prequel to Xenogears. The reason they said that Xenogears was part 5 was because it was a part of a series of events. Did you ever wonder why and how Kain, Gazel Ministry, Miang, Fatima Jasper, Nisan, Avhen, Kislev, and Shevat came to be?
also why Fei and Elly seemed to have past lives?
and the Zoboim ruins, where did to come from?
what was the ship Eldridg doing w/ deus?
All of those things were parts 1-4 of Xenogears.
I know of these things because I have read "Perfect works", a 300+pg book released by the producers of Xenogears, which explains all the past events. the book itself is completely in Japanese, but you can find a few translations online.


I was reading up on a forum somewhere and they had timelines and all that good stuff and they compared stuff from Xenogears and Xenosaga and said that the two can be related because all of the stuff in Xenosaga supposedly happened before Xenogears or at least i think...i cant remember but they were sayin somethin about the two games being connected.And i remember hearing somewhere that Capcom bought the rights to Xenogears so there may be another 3 episodes.If so i dont know if im too thrilled after think about it of how its gonna be since im lovin the classic so much

^ that's right, just because the name is almost the same and the gears they use might be similar they are two completely different stories. Namco makes Xenosaga and Square makes Xenogears...anyways I liked the game, I still get it out to play every once in a while (like at least one weekend in a month)

here is what i think...
great in game play, to many runinns with foes
extreamly complicated plot, need to play all the games in fast ressesion in order to understand it
some bosses are to hard for the level that you are at so you need to spend hours leveling up if you dont have cheats
decent amout of challanging puzzels
but i hate getting messages and the biginning of the games is spent mosly reading and running around to talk to so in so to get off the planet.

Xenogears rates in my top 10 RPG's of all time and my top 5 for the original playstation. Unfortunately, despite my absolute love of giant robots and super-complex storylines, Lunar: Silver Star Story still beats it out at number 1.

I will say this, they don't build them like they used to. I'd kill for a decent RPG that takes longer than 30 hours to beat. Xenogears took me almost 3x that amount of time and I really didn't do anything that wasn't completely essential to beating the game.

haha, ia have 2 copy's of it, one i play, and one in a sealed package. i also have both lunar games, and silver star story is better the launr: eternal blue..

but xenogears stilla takes the cake,

shame the cut down on the game, they rushed the second disk, there was supposed to be much more gameplay, but instead final fantasy 7 was higher up on squaresoft's list of games to work on.

and it suffered for it, shame.

yes Xenogears for the ps1 is one of my all time favorits rpgs. i played that game like about 5 or 6 times, its story is what captures me the most of the game, its unique and different and people dont give it enough credit. i am playing xeno saga for the ps2, i beat the first one, now im trying to beat the second , but its not nearly close or awesome as xenogears. i think the devolopers of xenosaga screwed up royally, plus the characters of xenogears are more memorable.
