My own thoughts: I did play the first Xenoverse game and i felt the way it tried to incorporate the online aspect was a bit lacking and the way the “What If” scenarios during the story mode were underdeveloped it did feel a bit rushed. Hopefully they can make the story better and improve the game play by giving it a bit more depth.
