Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is one of the best RPGs I’ve played in years. Moreover, it joins the elusive ranks of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives, a group very rarely encroached upon by any studio Sony doesn’t own. Ni No Kuni is just that good: a beautiful mixture of the traditional makings of a JRPG combined with gorgeous graphics, a wonderful story, a great cast of characters and thoughtful gameplay. Better yet, I truly believe there’s something here even for those that don’t necessarily enjoy random encounters, level grinding and stat building. The story, characters, aesthetics and gameplay really do mix to make something special well outside of the JRPG niche.
It took me just north of 40 hours to beat Ni No Kuni, and there’s still more for me to do. I didn’t complete every last side quest and I didn’t cruise through the entirety of the game’s battle arena. Word out of Japan is that the game’s coveted Platinum Trophy could take 80 hours to get, but know this: 40 hours with Ni No Kuni won’t allow you to see nearly all the game has to offer.
I didn’t want the game to end. It proved one of those special experiences – like I’ve had with Final Fantasy VI, Wild Arms or Tales of Destiny in the past – where I didn’t want to see the conclusion. I wanted it to keep going. That’s because Ni No Kuni is just that special, and every RPG fan owes it to him or herself to pick it up and see why."
+Gorgeous, lush graphics +Wonderful, expertly written and performed soundtrack +Excellent story that’s familiar, yet markedly unique +Engrossing battle system that takes influence from two great JRPG series +Requires at least 40 hours to beat, and perhaps twice that to do everything"
Yes. that's what i felt it too when beating the last boss... i don't want to end!
and their credibility goes further down the drain...
this game better than xenoblade.. LOL at the thought..
I hate to see rgaming websites as a whole, I'd rather see individuals. This reviewer enjoys this game more than Xenoblade... or maybe not. I don't know if he reviewed Xenoblade or not, but if he didn't maybe he would have given Xenoblade a higher score?
I enjoy Tales of Graces More than Xenoblade because Xenoblade overwhelmed me. Xenoblade is incredible, really, it's just unbelievable, it's a JRPG master piece, but I enjoy playing games that are more simple.
Look at it from that perspective. I think it's really the only way to look at it since IGN doe snot review the game, ONE Journalist from IGN does.
You want bugs go play Lost Planet. This is war boy, no bugs or liberals allowed. -Nick_GF
