While it wasn’t without some cringe, the game’s relentless focus on the power of friendship is a bit much at times, I enjoyed my time with Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The combat, character design, and the sheer amount of content to get through was more than enough to outweigh any weird moments of dialogue. The game wrapped nicely and even had nods to the original game in the later chapters.

I’m late to the party here but it’s one of the better JRPGs I’ve played and a future classic when we look back at the Switch library years from now.
