The Old vs The New: Xenoblade Chronicles vs Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Xenoblade Chronicles is likely one of the most well known RPGs for the Wii, with Operation Rainfall, the fan campaign to bring it to North America, having had obvious success. I was one of many who rushed to play the game as soon as they could, however, I was a bit disappointed by it. The story was about as interesting as I had hoped. However, the characters, combat system, and graphics were all far less polished than I had expected. For all the acclaim the game was receiving, it certainly didn’t feel like an AAA title to me.
