Tales of Xillia launches gamers into the world of Rieze Maxia, where humans and spirits live together in harmony.
However, a powerful device capable of global destruction now threatens to disrupt these pleasant times, meaning you must assume the role of either medical student Jude Mathis or paranormal misfit Milla Maxwell and restore peace.
It’s a classically quirky set-up for a Japanese RPG, and Xillia displays all the characteristics we’d expect from such a genre – a fun combat system, interesting storyline and plenty of replay value, bearing in mind there are technically two ways to tackle this title.
The graphics don’t quite match-up to the back end of this generation of console releases, but there are enough cool anime cut-scenes to keep style fans entertained as they discover the vast, weird and wonderful world of RPG.
Now go, save the world.
