With Xenosaga Episode II: "Beyond Good and Evil" on the way, what are your opinions on the first Xenosaga episode I: "The Will to Power" ? Favorite characters, overall opinion, and thoughts about Episode II.

My favorite character from I would have to be Albedo. Who doesnt love a psycho who can regenerate any body parts? The overall gameplay was good and I liked the cutscenes although many people got annoyed with them. The ending was ok, seeing as how it wasnt really supposed to end there, since it was only Episode one.
