Movie Reviews

Excellent for ANY anime fan!!!
T. Paukune | 09/18/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Xenosaga how EVERYONE can enjoy it! Quick and to the point but not rushed. The voices sound great and everything looks great.

The fight sceens have more blood than the third game, the baddies (Like Albedo) sound so cruel and have such wicked diologue it will make your jaw DROP in a good way! Virgil sounds great, and KOS-MOS is doing fantastic as well!

The story is modified a bit from the original, and a bit more interesting if you ask me (I've seen the whole thing in Japanese).

I love it so much so far, I haven't enjoyed an anime this much for a while, get it DEFINATELY! ;D"
A Must-Have for the Xenosaga fan

"This is a different version of the story told in Xenosaga Episode I: Will to Power. However, the main characters and the central plot basically follow the same course. This is a nice collector's item to have for any fan of the Xenosaga series. If you have a friend or a family member who would like to watch the story but do not have the time to play the game, then this is the answer. Also for someone who might have tried to play the game but was unable to finish it, this series of anime DVDs could be the way to go.

Personally, I prefer the story that was told in the video game. The soundtrack to the video game, composed by the renowned Yasunori Mitsuda, was also better than the soundtrack here. However, this anime does fill in some of the information left out in the game. As I said, there are some deviations between the two, as far as the plot goes. In the anime, Lt. Virgil did not die until near the end of the episode. Whereas he died rather early in the game. There are enough deviations here to make it feel like you're watching a different plot unfold. Enough to entertain you all over again, even if you've played the game numerous time, as I have.

I've always felt that the Xenosaga series of video games told one heck of a great story. The gameplay, graphics, voice-acting, and soundtrack were also top-notch. I just hope that one day, a novel of the series will come out. And eventually even a live-action movie. But for now, we will have to be content with this anime."
Sci-fi with some nice twists of the videogame story
Metal RN | USA | 10/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Envision a collaboration among Stanley Kubrick (2001: A Space Odyssey), George Lucas (Star Wars), and Gene Roddenberry (Star Trek). Add in a pinch of Ridley Scott (Alien), and you have Xenosaga. This epic animation delivers a nice twist to the Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille Zur Macht video game storyline. Fans of science fiction will enjoy the futuristic action and philosophy. Anime fans won't be disappointed in the smooth, clear quality of the audiovisuals. Finally, fans of the videogame series will appreciate a slightly different take and clarification on the story. They owe it to themselves to check this out. Vol. 1 is a rollercoaster ride ending cliffhanger that captures the essence of the saga. It will have you counting down to the release of Vol. 2."
Xenosaga vol.1
A. A. Avalos | Havelock, NC United States | 03/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hello, this review on my copy of, Xenosaga Vol.1: Enter the Gnosis. After watching this DVD, i found that it was outstanding. I am also the owner of two of the Xenosaga games for the PS2. The story follows that of the games plot. If you have played or seen the game, you can guess where it will lead. The artwork is of a good quality standard, and the voice casting is acceptable. I wish they could have used the voices from the actual game, which would have made it more enjoyable. Nice amount of bonus features. Over all i give this full marks.

I am looking forward in the next volume in this series. If you loved the game this is a must have anime.
