Source : Xenoblade Chronicles 2: The Kotaku Review

Inelegant and tedious, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the anti-Nintendo game. In a year full of triumphs for the spunky Switch, this massive role-playing game is a disappointment.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing. Our review:
Dudes not a fan of the Series why Review it? Seems more like a bash review to me
Obviously I don't know how reviewing games works all that well, but I feel like if you weren't a fan of the first g…
>Leaves a review of an open world rpg to the guy who hates open world rpgs why am i not surprised
So, uh, I'm genuinely unsure of how it works, but aren't you able to have some say in what games you review? Why in…
"I didn't love the first Xenoblade" *reviews the second one* Same old Kotaku.
If kotaku doesn't like it, it's probably fantastic.
HOW DARE SOMEONE HAVE A DISSENTING OPINION ON A VIDEO GAME I HAVEN'T PLAYED YET FUCK KOTAKU REEEEEEEE
Там в комментариях люди с аниме и mii-аватарками НЕ СОГЛАСНЫ С КОТАКУ КАК ТАК ВООБЩЕ МОЖНО НЕ ЛЮБИТЬ ЭКСКЛЮЗИВ НИНТ…
They got someone who hates the series to review the game... that's like getting someone who hates sports games to r…
"Wouldn't it be great to get somebody who doesn't like JRPG's to review a JRPG professionally?"
He didn't like the first xenoblade, so why is he the person to review it? That's like getting someone who hates cod…
If @Kotaku hates it! It has to be good!
Why is this person who "didn't like Xenoblade 1" and "skipped Xenoblade X" actually chosen to review it? 🤔
A hot fucking mess.
It's actually not
Stick to reviewing walking Sims and indie games your friends made. Tgis is just as bad as your shit fit about drag…
Nothing personal Jason, but that doesn't exactly mean a lot coming from you, since you also disliked the last two.…
Oh so another GOTY niceee
Oh no someone dislikes it. Better get butthurt
well obviously you're not gonna like this game if you dont like the first game and dont know how to do sidequests b…
LMAO Are you serious? And he didn't even like the first game? This review is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately d…
Just like you huh? :^) 9/10 if Kotaku says it shit, the game is great
I'm not saying they should have gotten someone with positive bias to review the game. But I am saying that they sho…
When you let the guy who didn't even like the other 2 games in the series review the latest entry in said series.
No surprise there. Kotaku is disappointed in anything with pretty girls and male protagonists.
Lol enjoy this while I enjoy #XenobladeChronicles2 😗
Oh damn.
No le gustaban los anteriores. Sin embargo le dejan hacer la review. En @GeneracionXbox no lo permitiría nunca.
Why would they have someone who doesn't even like Xenoblade review this game?
So I read the review a little bit and from what it looks like, JRPGs aren't your thing and why the fuck did they pi…
Y este es el resultado de que alguien a quien ni le gustan los jrpg ni el primer juego de la saga haga una review d…
Hoy veo a la gente agitada y despeinada con esto.
Today's entertainment has been set. Time to open the popcorn and watch the riots begin.

Everyone has their own opinion, but if a certain reviewer hated a specific type of Gaming Genre please get someone…
How much did nintendo and capcom pay you to say this?
Bet they got stuck on the tutorial lol

Yikes. I've only played the Wii U game and had very mixed feelings (loved the world, liked the combat, hated the te…
Everything described as tedious in this review sounds like exactly the JRPG stuff I love. Hopefully I didn't just w…
While I do agree that it's his opinion and it's valuable, I think kotaku did a wrong here. It's nice to see a persp…
Reading this trash is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing. Our review:
The writer of this article flat-out states he hated the original Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. Why did he get to rev…
So we out here having non JRPG fans review jrpg games.....
This means it is a good game then. Well looks like I will buy it even though I don't own a Switch.
So this is the review that many people talk about 😂
"Grindy RPG" Does this man know anything about role playing games?
im about to buy xenoblade 2 just because of this article and i bet ill enjoy it
To everyone upset about this review from Jason Schreier: have you tried reading other reviews instead
Kotaku your frustrating and ultimately disappointing😒
Le flacon de sel est tombé sur les commentaires
So someone who didn't like the first and didn't play X reviewed this game and was disappointed. Why'd you review…
Why would you review a sequel to a game in hopes that its nothing like the first game- that you didnt like

What a tedious, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing "review".
Yeah, but anime tiddy...
While I am waiting for XB2 coming in the mail, I am seeing Kotaku being themselves
"Didn't love the first Xenoblade Chronicles." Yeah this is why I don't read Kotaku rubbish. I mean why get someone…
WTF?! Most hyped game of the year?!
Another totally unbiased review by Kotaku...
This guy didn't even like the first game!? This review shouldn't be taken seriously
For once, I agree with Kotaku.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 est encore plus mauvais et confus qu'il en avait l'air dans les trailers :/
Marrant l’echo chamber dans les commentaires. Dès que les gens n’entendent pas ce qu’ils aimeraient entendre, tu vo…

Cuphead is the "Dark Souls of the Run 'n Gun genre"
Really nibba
Read this Kotaku Review @SpawnWaveMedia Sounds like he never played a JRPG in his life.
Boi, the replies to this are an absolute shit show. Whole lotta people in their feelings.
Huiuiui. Hatte da jemand schlechte Laune? Was sagt wohl der @AlexG000 dazu?
Nah but that description i would use about your site.
Of course, they release a bad review as usual.
If Kotaku says it's shit, it probably isn't
Well that's a shame. Hopefully the people who were looking forward to it still find something to enjoy in it!
I havent even played the fucking game yet you pack of queers
Imagine not being able to play an RPG lmao
Un análisis no es una opinión, lo de este artículo sí que lo es
Ppl so mad about this i am not surprise lol but this is the same guy that talk about the charactor design in drago…
Why did this guy even review it? He disliked the first one, didn't play the second one...C'mon Kotaku...
Daaaaaaaamn...
Los de kotaku siendo imbéciles, menuda novedad
*popcorn crunching sounds*
wtf Kotaku I thought you were gay?!
oh bollocks... 😭
Had that feeling, even from watching the trailers. #Dissapoint
Le aburrió el primer xenoblade? #@WTF
Kotaku having a good opinion? What kind of cursed timeline is this?
A mediocre sequel of a mediocre game :^)
Kotaku is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing. Our review:

Let me rephrase that for you, Kotaku. "The Nintendo Switch is tedious, frustrating, and ultimately disappointing."

Well if kotaku says it's shite I bet it's a great game.

I don't buy this review for a second. Having it be from Kotaku doesn't help.
Xenoblade 2 is tedious, messy, and unconcerned with wasting the player's time. My review:
