PS3 Review: Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch | RPG Land

"It turns on the charm, the entertainment, and the fun from the first hours, and doesn’t turn them off throughout the entire duration of the sixty hours you’ll probably spend finishing it. Exploring the world map never gets old, the battle system stays thrilling, and the characters are lovable. Nothing about this game is phoned in. It contains the same elements and same spirit that made so many of us fall in love with the genre in the first place. It doesn’t have a complicated, emotional, life-changing message or story, but it doesn’t have to. It touches a deep vein of nostalgia and childlike wonder." -Janelle Hindman's review

Fantastic RPG.

Also, the image is a reference to the RPGLand front-page quote about the review, which says, "We don’t use numbers for reviews anymore, but this is our equivalent of the famed '10 out of 10,' and only the fourth game to get the rating at RPGLand."

Wow. That's definitely impressive. I'll have to take a look. Now I know why my friend Nick was so smitten by this game.

I'm so excited for this game to come to the States. Since Final Fantasy has deviated from what I loved about the series, I'm putting all of my hope for a great JRPG into Ni no Kuni.

Did some checking & the games that has received this 'legendary' score are:

Final Fantasy 7
Valkyria Chronicles
Legend of Zelda - Wind Waker
Ni No Kuni

Though Mass Effect 1 did get a 10 also.

This is the only game that I am looking forward to this holiday season (Jan 23 still counts, right?) and the only one in many years that I will be picking up on day 1. It is so important to show our support for this level of quality in an RPG so that we can keep them coming to the US.

Seriously, any RPG fan who complains that the genre is dying and no longer innovative should have this game on their must-buy list. If not, you should never have the right to complain again :)

100 hours if you do everything! That's what I love about Level-5

' Even after the main game is finished, there are still 100 hidden treasure chests, seven pirate memorials, and sixteen hidden villages on the world map to discover; an Imajinn battle league to conquer; a magic spell book to complete; a casino with slots, minigames and a cutscene theater; postgame quests and bounties to hunt down; alchemy recipes to find; and Golden Imajinns to catch. Full completion of the game will require at least 100 hours from most people.'

I've got the Collector's Edition pre-ordered already, now it's just the waiting game. I'm hoping this is the JRPG that brings me back to the glory days of the PS1 era.

Ni No Kuni and Tales of Xillia are going to be my masters for a long time.
