What will make Ni No Kuni be a better game? A brief review..

#1squalleddPosted 1/19/2013 11:36:00 PM
You heard and read all the good about this game. So i just want to make a brief review.

The Good:
A nostalgic feeling come through your bone, and stay inside your body when you playing Ni No Kuni.
The artwork, the soundtrack, the gameplay, the puzzle, and the world map.. All of that make you feel like you are playing modified old JRPG.
Everything is just right.

The one that should be Good:
There are two things that i think it can be improved. Which are the AI of the human character that we are not controlled.
They should be smarter. And the AI option is limited. I wish to have more option but not as complex as FF XII.
Because of that, the player really has to watch the other character really well not consuming a lot of MP which are very precious or dying.
Also, it should be better if there is online feature like Familiar Battle across the globe. We can level up the Familiar and do the battle and tournament. It will make the longevity of this game longer and more fun.
That's the only complaint of this game.

Conclusion:
My score is 10/10. It doesn't mean it is perfect game. Nothing in this world is perfect. I guarantee you.
Despite of no online feature and smarter AI, as a whole, Ni No Kuni is come with the right ingredients to really satisfy my JRPG hunger.

It seems the AI in the demo didn't need to be babysat but it might be different later in the game.

I noticed some options from the full game were not available in the demo, such as to make your team go all out or defend.

I forgot to mention: that review based on Japanese version.

Please don't bother. His trolling attempts on this board has become quite pathetic in a short amount of time.

At least the other ones are funny.

That is false.. an action style battle system on a seperate field , with tactics and sub menus to cast magics.. ..it's almost excactly like star ocean.
