Around 50 hours into Xenogears and just recently finished the first disc. Up to that point this game was superb. However starting the second disc the game is barely recognizable. It's like everything was rushed from then on. You basically sit and watch cut scenes with the occasional battle thrown in from time to time. But that's not enough, the cut scenes are told in past tense with everything wrapped up leaving only the gist of the story left. It's a shame because even the gist tells of developers having a really thought out story, but wasn't allowed the tell everything in detail. This makes the first disc a superb JRPG, but the second is more of a aftermath. Oh well, I'm going to see this one through at least.
