The beginning of Xenoblade Chronicles X can be particularly rough because of its lengthy tutorial. This is to be expected, though. The game has so many mechanics and systems that it takes several hours to get you properly acquainted with the ins and outs of the world.
Yes, you’ll be aching to just finally get out there and do whatever you want, but there’s a certain way players should approach this game if they don’t want to just end up meandering about the terrain in search of something to do. The tutorial is there to help you; pay attention, really give it your all in everything they throw at you, and then remember that you’re not even scratching the surface. Soon enough, you’ll be running and jumping and flying and driving everywhere your heart desires, the way you want to. The payout will be well worth it.
