The last time I pre-ordered a game on the Wii was Mario Kart which was over three years ago. That run was broken by Xenoblade Chronicles. The question is has Xenoblade managed to live up to the high expectations I had for the game?
It’s a simple question but one I was almost not able to answer. My pre-order arrived a day late (obviously this was no fault of game developers Monolith Soft) and when I inserted the disc I was informed that I needed to download a Wii update. After this my Wii restarted…and couldn’t read the disc. I’d reported on this problem the day before and now I was being troubled by it. Fortunately though after restarting my Wii once more the disc was read and the game began.
And what a game! Regular readers may have noticed I didn’t make a single post to Gamers Corner over the weekend and that’s because I was so absorbed by Xenoblade Chronicles that I didn’t want to put it down.
