* HypeBacklash: This game is getting this as it was touted heavily as an anniversary title, but in reality it was rushed out the door to meet said anniversary. After the hype died down, fans were not pleased. Namco took note and made a sequel addressing many issues (while making some others) Surprisingly enough though, it seems to be averted in the US as the game received very good reviews and the pre-order sales were apparently so massive that it was enough for Creator/NamcoBandai to flat out announce the localization for the sequel.

** Some hate the bosses for being significantly harder than the trash mobs and breaking out of combos, preventing the same kind of combo-lock strategy that tends to work in most other TalesSeries games. Others prefer the challenge and are glad that they aren't just [[FanNickname Punching Bags]].

** ''Xillia'' got some hatred because unlike other ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' games, you can't just be good at comboing and stun-locking bosses to death in one endless SpamAttack combo. You ''will'' have to block and dodge in this game. If you haven't learned from ''Graces'', then it's a good time to learn now.

* AmericansHateTingle: Milla is a BaseBreakingCharacter on the Western side of the fandom for a multitude of reasons, ranging from her voice acting to claims of CharacterShilling and accusations of GodModeSue. In Japan though she's fairly well liked enough to where she made it into the top twenty in the most recently popularity polls.

** Early on in the game Jude is branded a criminal for helping Milla. Despite this being a good way to potentially develop Jude as a character, the event is only used for comedic moments and never effects any of his interactions, not even when he returns home. Imagine Jude having to face his parents for dropping out of medical school, and being now a wanted criminal! Nope, apparently nobody in Fennmont bothered to spread information beyond the [[MythologyGag extremely poorly drawn wanted pictures]].



** The booster storyline sets up a possible backstory for Elize and Wingul but then goes no where.

Instead the storyline is overshadowed by Elize's backstory, with the booster plot being dropped, resulting in Wingul's backstory being AllThereInTheManual.

* [[ChristmasRushed Anniversary Rushed]]: The game was rushed for the big anniversary, resulting in many things left out (most of which ending up in the sequel). It's the main reason for the hype backlash in Japan at least. In the states though, not so much. The plot suddenly [[CosmicDeadline starts to move at a rapid pace]] around the 3/4 point, with many threads either wrapped up quickly or shoved to the side. You can tell that the later part of the game was rushed.
* AnticlimaxBoss: [[spoiler: The Real Maxwell]] in Mila's story, since her version of the fight skips past the two HopelessBossFight segments to the actual winnable part, and due to the boss' huge vulnerability to the Four Great Spirits, which in her story you've had a while to get used to using. It's probably intentional though.

** Even the game's villains, with Gaius expressing his admiration for Mila's conviction, [[VillainRespect despite being on opposing sides with her.]] So does Muzet, though some of her remarks about Milla are [[BitchInSheepsClothing laced with veiled sarcasm.]]

** Leia/Jude is also fairly popular due to their ChildhoodFriends status and the fact that as far as relationships go, it's actually a really well done one. It also helps that Jude/Millia are seen as way too much of a LastMinuteHookup by the majority of fans.

* HarsherInHindsight: All of Teepo's jabs at people like Alivn and Leia, such as calling them names and accusing Leia of being TheLoad, become a lot less funny when [[spoiler: it's revealed that Teepo is a booster that speaks Elize's true thoughts.]]

** The English dub did this for Jude among a particular subset of fans. It seems that Creator/TsubasaYonaga's performance as Jude was {{lost|InTranslation}} on some western players, who found him whiny and annoying, while Creator/SamRiegel's take on the character is considered a bit more mature.

** In terms of non-bosses, if you're playing Mila's story, Fort Gandala comes a a pretty big DifficultySpike. You go from having a 5-person party to Mila fighting ''solo'', against enemies that clearly were designed to be fought with a full party. This wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that Mila has no healing skills, and that her charged spells are nearly impossible to pull off without someone to cover her.

** Muzet, largely due to her KarmaHoudini status. [[spoiler: In Judes path she outright ''murders'' most of the villagers in Nia Khera, just because they had heard [[HeKnowsTooMuch stories about the schism]]. In Millas path she does the same but we learn she also slaughtered many spirits out of suspicion that one may be Milla in disguise. Her feelings of being abandoned by Maxwell can come off as {{Wangst}} to the player.]] On top of all this, she's an absurdly cheap boss in Milla's story, one of the hardest in the game.

** Rewatching when you know that Milla [[spoiler: really is just a human woman who was duped]] is a fascinating and unsettling experience. Particularly anytime she mentions [[spoiler: her mission, 'you humans', her role as Maxwell etc]].
