Citing a "desire to be sensitive to those who are concerned with violence against children", the scene in the original Japanese version, where Albedo holds young MOMO in his lap and reaches into her abdomen thrusting his arm into her body was, changed for the American release in which his hand hovers above her head.

User Reviews

One of the best RPGs of all time!

This is one of the best RPGs I have ever come to play. It beats out MORROWIND for the XBOX and the FINAL FANTASY series for the PLAYSTATION 2. The intense graphics, the outstanding soundtrack, the plot, and the mystery to the game makes it unique. It's a different type of RPG that makes it also unique. I'll be waiting for "XENOSAGA EPISODE 2". (10/10 on my account!)
