I bought this game for two main reasons: One, I like most JRPG's, and I'd owned this before; Two, it is my first Lukie Games purchase and I wanted to see what they were about. I was not disappointed! Yes as another reviewer stated, Xenosaga is slow paced, but as with most games of this genre, the plot and relationships are more important than the action and beautiful graphics. Battles are hard, and there are many choices to make. As said, I'd owned this before, part of a 100+ game collection I lost to thieves 7 years ago. I have slowly rebuilt, and Lukie's price beat Amazon. I was surprised when I got it, that it appeared brand new, as if the wrapper just came off! And playing it, with the enigmatic and sexy blue-haired heroine KOS-MOS, is a real treat on a new HDTV. Slow it may be, but stick with the story.
You'll be glad you did.
