I have a lilttle over 40 hrs logged into XC2 now and just want to share a few thoughts.
The story so far is kind of meh. Lots of anime cliche. When a friend told me it was a super weeb game, I replied with aren’t 99% of JRPGs like that? But this game takes it to another level. Supposedly the story gets better and better though and it’s not that bad where I don’t want to keep going. My current objective atm is to head to Rex’s hometown.
The battle system to me is whatever. but I think I lean more towards disliking it than liking it. It’s like FF13, complicated for no reason even after you understand how it works. I unequipped Roc and benched Tora because their English voice lines are annoying asf. I would lower the volume for the voices, but I like hearing the little banters on the field and such. This is why I still appreciate games like DQ11 so much.
Besides that, I like everything else about the game so far.
