Very awesome game but story line was very confusing and I didnt like disc 2 much. Now I do not agree with you saying this is the best non FF game. In my own opinion the most legendary has got to be chrono trigger to this day that rpg is better then most that came after it.

actually the reason that disc2 was all story and little action was due to the error on squaresoft's(current day squarenix) part, they had to cut the budget as they were developing disc2, little did they know that Xenogears would be such a hit, upon realizing the error they had done, they created perfect works, it was a book explaining the entire history of Xenogears and more. yet sadly the error they made on disk2 shall forever remain

Xenogear is all about the story, and characters or nothing, not much focus on gameplay and the battle system is rather shabby, but think about it 60+ hours of very linear gameplay with an amazing storyline, plot ties up superbly at the end and the music is great, this is a game for the ages, because it's heart and soul is in the storyline, it doesn't matter how much graphics have advanced or gameplay has evolved, if you actually give it some effort you will be captivated by the storyline in the end, one of the games that give the meaning to the word meaningful. That said you either love it or hate it, play it with a sceptical mindframe, and you will quit before even reaching the halfway mark, labor through the game(yes many instances are actually a pain in the ass), and you will be rewarded with many precious memories, trust me it's one of those rare gems.

Xenogears is better then like every FF game, and Chrono Trigger is better then just about every RPG, FPS, RTS, sports sim, racing sim, and any other genre you can think of game. Chrono Trigger is the pinicale of RPG's (and yet its so old LOL) if you think one is better thats for your own personal reasons but its not fact >:O

(yes I know the whole opinion thing lol)

*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

Xenogears is a amazing game that you need to go play right now, Xenosaga is a game that when you turn it on your introduced to a 30 minute cutscene, in fact the only game with longer cutscenes then this game is MGS4, and the difference is MGS4's are interesting...

Fei Fong Wong was way cooler than Cloud or Sephiroth.
