It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a year since the first Tales of Xillia came overseas. It was considered by many (including myself) the best of the series and it was one that deserved a sequel. But we’ve been burned by a sequel before. Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World wasn’t bad but was a major let down to many fans. Will Tales of Xillia 2 suffer the same fate?
The latest of the Tales series chosen to be localized outside of Japan. Tales of Xillia along with the series bridges the gap between traditional JRPG’s and action games while not favoring one over the other. Originally released in Japan in 2011, Tales of Xillia is the highest rated Tales game. Does Tales of Xillia live up to its praises?
