[PS3 RPG Review] Tales of Xillia

December 2, 2013 | | 6 Comments

Tales of Xillia follows Jude Mathis, a clever medical student attending school in the capital city, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman accompanied by four unseen beings. Players will be able to choose either Jude or Milla at the outset of their adventure through the world of Rieze Maxia, where humans and spirits live together in harmony.

Tales of Xillia is the latest Japanese-RPG from Namco Bandai Tales Of Studio and is also a milestone for being part of the 15th anniversary celebrations of the “Tales Of” franchise.

I played a lot Tales of Graces f last year, and loved it! When I started playing Xillia, I was wondering how (and if) this game could be even better than Tales of Graces was.

After having played through it, I can say that not only is Xillia way better than Tales of Graces was, but I would even say that this game ranks among the best JRPGs of this generation!
