i have... and finished it actually despite having a ridiculously long game due to the dialogue. But hey, the battle system was a real beauty, customizing ur gears was fun, there were some really nice minigames... and the gameplay was quite ok.. It meshed platform, rpg, and a somewhat realtime fighting game.

My only wish was that you could skip the the dialogue or adjust the speed a bit... It was a real pain going thru disc 2 since it was just story... then boss battle, then a looonggerrrr story, then boss battle again, then another freakin long story...

The story was pretty hard to understand too. Well, not the better RPG's out there, thats for sure.

this game is pretty good for me.. during the time of PS1 this game is quite popular. The game play is ok but the story is too long.. by the way the 3 Xenosaga series in PS2 is actually the story before the Event in Xenogears. So if you have played the Xenosaga series then you would understand where Sitan came from and it will give you a better uderstanding of the story of xenogears...^^

I have played bits and peices... my methods of playing it have well died or not worked.

Anyway I have heard this game was pretty much banned everywhere in the US.

I didn't know that, is that true? Anyway, I've completed it and it was great. Would have been perfect, if they bothered to have any gameplay in Disc 2. Still better than FFVII imo.

My friend claims he tried to rent it from blockbuster once and they said the was on their do not purchase list. I have found that not many people like this game. So some kind of banning would have had to go on to make the game in such short supply.

Nah, the game just didn't get much hype. They didn't release much copies in the US, which is why it costs so much on Ebay or whatever. Also, I doubt they would have banned a game with a "T" rating.

Cloud mentions Xenogears when he is recovering from falling in the life stream...
when he's rambling incoherent babble...

Well you need to remember that there are lots of references to creation and gods and other such things. Violence and Sex, while commonly banned, are not the only reasons games are banned.

This is probably one of my favorite games of all time. However, if you don't pay enough attention to the story (and I mean a lot of attention) the game will become confusing as hell :/ I just recently beat it a couple months ago (my second playthrough but first time beating it) and I payed a lot more attention to the dialogue, and read a bit of the perfect works guide before hand. It really made a huge difference. I'd reccomend people to give this game a second chance if they haven't already.

I also liked the gameplay (the combat was fun) so it's just not the story that makes the game great.

One of the best RPG's to grace a console imo.

Fantastic battle system(combos ftw), great yet confusing story (if you don't pay attention) and not to mention the character were great (the main villian strife was cool imo). I really felt for them, and the cut seens it brought it home.
