Personal review
Der Wille zur Macht translates to The will to power, actually the name of a book by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (although published after his death by his sister,Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, after heavy editing, twisting Friedrich's ideas).

Comment
Xenogears was one of my favorite RPGs of all time. Imagine my excitement when I found out that they were making a prequel! When I finally played Xenosaga... well... it was kind of like being in Purgatory (or at least my image of it)--it's not so bad, not good, but not bad. Xenosaga is kind of like watching (yes watching) a 'playable' movie. The story gets needlessly complicated and deviant, I wasn't even sure what they were talking about half the time. Lets just say I won't be playing--I mean watching--Xenosaga Episodes II & III when they're released.
