Ni no Kuni vs Valkyria Chronicles

Meh, two very different RPG's

VC definately shined more than NNK though, but at the same time i'm more a fan of traditional Jrpg's.

I liked Valkyria Chronicles better, I only played the demo for Ni no Kuni but I didn't like it much.

Still wish there were trophies for Valkyria Chronicles though, this would have been an amazing game to finish 100% and platinum.

Played both, and for me theres no contest here, Valkyria Chronicles is one of the top 3 rpgs this gen as far as im concerned.... NnK was just a mediocre game with awesome design.

Ni No Kuni:
Great Graphics that represent Anime
A Very long game, with many sidequests.
Decent Story
A sort of Tales like Pokemon Gameplay
Amazing Soundtrack

Valkyria Chronicles:
Not as Amazing Soundtrack
A Superb and superior art direction, the sketchbook style nailed it.
A Fun Combat system that keeps you thinking every step of the way.
Every Level adds a new challenge, so no level just feels like the same thing.
Story was more interesting, and a unique approach to a world war era.



They're both excelllent games but Valkyria CHronicles manage to deliver a much more unique and fulfilling experience. . Where Ni No Kuni was more of a "Finally scratch that JRPG itch that had been missing for a long time".

I preferred Valkyria Chronicles myself. Ni No Kuni was interesting but it didn't hold my attention for very long. The military strategy of Valkyria Chronicles kept my attention for weeks.
