The demo was good, I enjoyed running around though I do hope it's not as linear as it appeared. No FFXIII repeat!! Strange that they chose boss battles to show off, instead of an open world RPG with some quest and maybe miniboss instead. It looks awesome though, and though the combat system appears a bit complicated at first, it looks to have a rhythm to it that will just take some getting used to.

i didn't know about the demo till I saw this article there is no ads at all for this game.
I am downloading it right now.

I wonder how many reviews will put this game down because of 'bad translation', when in fact it's a Welsh translation. I saw enough of this game to see why every SINGLE site raved about it when they played it... let's see how many of those sites RAVE about it when it's released. Next year you are going to see the harshest reviews of PS3 exclusives you've ever seen. Trust me.

I wasn't a fan of Dragon Quest, and this game feels very similar to me (same devs) so I won't be getting it.

Shame, it looks great! :D

Come to think of it, I've never played an impressive demo for a JRPG. They're sprawling stories and involving RPG development are hard to sell in a couple of minutes, and this is unfortunately a prime example, throwing you right into a boss fight with no kind of tutorial. Once I grasped it though, as a cross between FFXII and Pokemon, I had a lot of fun with the second part of the demo and it looks like a pretty good story, which typically makes-or-breaks the genre. Hopefully things are better explained the game itself, which I'm sure is the case.

The demo was great, all it takes little time to learn the combat and controls.

This game had been in development for quite some time and the game looks, plays and performs beautifully.

JRPG' at its finest and prettiest forms with many hours of great story and gameplay.

It's one man opinion that should had been blogged personally and not put on N4G to generate publicity views.

Anyone who even remotely looked at Ni No Kuni videos and enjoys good JRPG will be more then excited to get their hands on the game.
Terrible gaming journalism...

I like it a lot. It's a very classic game, which is what I was expecting.

Is this a rating.... For a demo???? I understand its a demo bigger than most PSV games and all (2.6 gigs)but man. I still haven't played it yet but man, Is it so bad there's an blog about it?

I really enjoyed the demo. Feels so last gen to me. In a good way of course. Looking forward to picking it up for the collection.

I enjoyed the Demo. If only Nintendo can make a game like this with Poke' was a nice JRPG

The battle system just bored me..*sigh*
HarvesterOSarow  +   1158d ago
This demo was amazing! It throws you in to certain parts of the story and you have to figure things out for yourself. For being a lighthearted game, it doesn't really baby you except perhaps "Taking and Giving Heart".

The battle system was phenomenal. Very unique and exactly what I was hoping for from Level 5 and Studio Ghibli. It had a Pokemon feel with the familiars, except with much more RPG elements thrown in. The fact that you are controlling a pet and Oliver in real time, with other party members was really interesting. I enjoyed the challenge as well. The second battle really seemed to ramp up, so it makes me wonder if there's a hard mode.

But I have to say that my favorite part of the demo was when you walked out of the area and the world map came up. The music started playing, and I found myself falling in love with a game I had only held in my dreams so far.
I have the wizard edition pre-ordered and can't wait to invest endless hours into it.

While I don't like criticising a journalist for writing an opinion piece, I have no idea what this dude was smoking when he played this game.

Ni No Kuni is awesome. It has flaws, but it took me about a minute to forget those ever existed.

I was kind of miffed about the fact that, it's the exact same demo I played at Tokyo Game Show two years ago now, except you can't explore the village once you open the gate. I think allowing gamers to explore a little bit of the village and see how lively it is with all of the NPC's etc would have done the demo wonders.

Can't wait for the game regardless.

I didn't want to be one of those people who can't handle criticism of a game he's looking forward to and attacks anyone with a dissenting opinion so I gave this article the benefit of the doubt before playing. I wasn't completely sold on this game anyway. It looked great and I love the studio Ghibli style but I've never been a big fan of the JRPG (at least not in recent years) and I had a sense this game could go either way. Flop or amazing.

After playing the demo, it's amazing. That's all there is to it. I can't even see how anybody could think otherwise. From the first moment you can just sense how much genuine passion has gone into this game.

Even if this game is misunderstood and poorly reviewed by the big name sites (it won't be but even if it is) I'm calling it as a future classic. I don't think this is gonna be another cool for a month but instantly forgettable game. I predict people talking about this game years from now. I predict the switched on kids of today some day emulating this game on their fancy new entertainment devices/implants for nostalgic kicks the way we do with FF7.

1) Super happy if you loved the demo and/or are incredibly excited for the game. I want people to be happy and have fun, and my impressions are not law.

2) Why is a disappointed opinion with justification considered trolling? I didn't unfairly judge the game, and gave it leniency for being nothing more than a demo.

3) Many seem to latch onto the fact that I died early on by not taking advantage of the battle system...Why? I was playing dumb to get a feel for fighting, noted I was playing dumb and corrected it, and never blamed the game for not letting me button-mash through every enemy encounter.

Even though most of you hated what I had to say, this immediate support for Ni no Kuni excites me. Love to see a passionate fanbase, and especially surrounding my favorite video game genre.

That be all. Take it easy, N4G.

this is the internet, no one knows if any thing is physically true or not which leaves this as an opinion not fact. therefore opinions are like a**holes, everybody's got one.
first1NFANTRY  +   1158d ago
I smell a rant from a butthurt 360 fanbot mad cause their not getting any Ni no Kuni love. Aww mommy couldn't get you the expensive black beast?

On a more serious note, this demo has made my excitement level higher. Next year can't come soon enough
omi25p  +   1158d ago
Wow. Did you even read the article?

As some who has both consoles and has played the demo i can tell you i didn't like it.

Am i a fan boy also?
TheMrFraz  +   1157d ago
I have never owned a 360. Sorry.
McLuvn  +   1158d ago
I completely disagree with the hate on this game.
Can't wait to own it.
Treian  +   1158d ago
the demo felt like playing FF9 :)
WiiUsauce  +   1158d ago
I'm sold. I LOVE FF9. my favorite Final Fantasy, ever.
WiiUsauce  +   1158d ago
yes, let's judge a 60+ hour JRPG from a 30 minute demo.
