2# Xenoblade Chronicles 3D - 2015

Review85Score

Xenoblade Chronicles plays as a role-playing video game (RPG), where the player controls one character out of a party of three using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk or the Classic Controller. While exploring, the player may choose to take on side quests from various non-player characters that inhabit the game's world, as they commonly involve locating certain items or killing a certain number of enemy characters. Xenoblade Chronicles has a real-time action-based battle system, where the player manually moves the current lead character in real-time, and party members will "auto-attack" when enemies enter their attack radius. Health may be restored by the player by using healing Arts in battle, or the player may let characters' HP regenerate automatically outside of battle.
