 GamingWorld X - Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose Preview
Xenosaga, developed under Monolith Soft, (which houses many ex-Square employees who worked on Xenogears) is an epic sci-fi video game series imbued with a heavily philosophical storyline.
Since Xenosaga Episode II is in direct continuity with its predecessor, Shion, KOS-MOS, chaos, Ziggy, Jr., and MOMO all return as the main playable characters.
Canaan (a new orange-haired character, who also happens to be a Realian) and the blatantly angelic chaos were assigned to investigate Miltia to find out the reason why the normally tranquil Realians suddenly rebelled in an army of violent destruction.

 Xenosaga III Review
Xenosaga III is suppose to put closure to the entire storyline but unfortunately there are still some plots that haven't been cleared up while other plots weren't explained clearly enough that gamers can understand.
Xenosaga III soundtrack is pretty much on par with Xenosaga II but not as good as the original Xenosaga.
Xenosaga III probably has more sad musical scores than the previous 2 games and it shows here due to the fact that this chapter has the most emotional event scenes around.

Canaan and Voyager explained exactly what Program Canaan is: it's a spying program installed into the subconscious mind of a fraction of Realians, and it's linked directly to Wilhelm's office.
That's why Canaan was "assigned" to my group in the present, and why he was always hanging around chaos and other important figures in the past.

Your job in Xenosaga II is to figure out what makes each enemy tick, and how you can stop their incessant clock from persisting.
Xenosaga Episode I: Der Will zur Macht wasn't the most glamorous of games visually, but the RPG world the game established was good enough for seeing the things you had to see.
In turn, not only will the duration of Xenosaga II last shorter (the game can be beaten in about 20-30 hours now), but the way in which the story is told is definitely worse off because of that (with short-lived narrated segments inserted in between to speed up some portions of the tale).

 Geek-Asylum.com Xenosaga Episode 2 Review
I've played and beaten Xenogears (not the same, but from the same writers and mostly the same development team as Xenosaga) at least once a year since the game was released in 1998.
When I heard that Xenosaga 2 was coming soon to the US many months back, I went into a pure joy-gasm.
So, with Xenosaga 2, some new changes have been brought forth to the Xenosaga style of game play, but the plot remained true as a true sequel to Xenosaga 1.

It's really not that surprising as the Xenosaga titles have traditionally had poor pacing play a role in the prolific amount of criticism it has received.
The sheer length of many Xenosaga cinematics when juxtaposed with the rather sparse and mundane gameplay that RPGs so often has creates a bit of a problem that, when continued for 40 hours, breeds contempt.
Canaan was supposed to be playable in 2 but was scrapped I guess.

Turmoil between factions jousting for control of the Zohar—a powerfully mysterious artifact that was lost on Old Miltia (kind of like the original Miltia) many, many years ago, and turmoil that surrounds numerous figures, many of which are playable within the game.
The game is character-driven, and you'll spend plenty of the 30-some-odd-hour-long saga exploring the characters' past and their relationship to each other.
Xenosaga II is a good, if not great, game in the same vein as the original Xenosaga.

Canaan isn't a main character in Xenosaga II, but he is important nonetheless.

Canaan isn't much of a rebel though, despite the fact that he almost looks intimidating because of his glowing yellow eyes.
