Ni No Kuni review gets 9/10 in Official PlayStation Magazine, “pure, sweet RPG nectar”

OPM: Our man Phil was mightily impressive by the gorgeous JRPG, awarding Level 5's uniquely beautiful adventure 9/10. Here's a wee gushing excerpt to give you a flavour of what to expect from the full review next week...

"Just as the best kids movies have adults clasping their hands together in delight, Ni No Kuni is blessed with a surplus of charisma that can hold the most joyless, cynical audience in its charms."

If I concentrate really hard, maybe I can catapult my consciousness into the near future.

Though the resulting paradox would probably trigger the collapse of the universe.....

......Still, totally worth it.

Maybe you could go into the mountains and freeze yourself for the next few weeks ;)

I could tell the second I saw Studio Ghibli's name attached to it.

specsmatter1568d ago

Cant wait!!!! Loved the demo so i am def. picking this up. The graphics are also top notch i feel like im literally playing a real ife cartoon!!!!

Seraphemz1568d ago

Shikoro1568d ago

Of course, why would it go away? You have to try it since it's really beautiful. :)

These are the reviews so far:

RPGLand 10
PSN Lifestyle 10
Gamepro Germany 93%
(can't find it is somewhere here on N4G)
Finnish pelit magazine gave it 89% .
(saw it on a forum)
Game Informer 7
(magazine so i just saw it on a forum)
Meh Game Informer nitpicking to the max, too few save points and the reviewer liked only Drippy as character, also said that deaths was too punishing, etc ... stupidity imo, but nitpicking on jrpg is expected sadly :(

Still awesome reviews and i can't wait :)

Blastoise1568d ago

Shame about that 7. But I guess a 7 is still a good score.

Don't forget Gamemasters UK gave it an overall score of 95/100

Catoplepas1568d ago

I'm guessing Game Informer broke out their stock COD reviewer.

Typical complaints from that type of gamer. No hand holding, a semblance of a challenge, etcetera.

Ezz20131568d ago (Edited 1568d ago )

i'm not saying you are wrong or anything
but gameInformer review
i can't find it any where
can you give a link ?!

Julie1568d ago (Edited 1568d ago )

@Ezz2013 Ye shall lurk on Neogaf forums more lol!

Tons of info on those forums, no scans tho because is against the forum rules :)

Kinger89381568d ago


A 7 is still good , wonder what the main sites will give it! The ign chap seemed impressed on the podcast and was writing the review so we will see

keiichimorisato981566d ago

one of the complaints is that the game feels too old school... i was thinking wy complain about how JRPG's have been down hill in recent years (part of that problem is that they are trying to change their image and westernize) and when a JRPG actually delivers now its too old school.

Oh ya and that 95/100 too , i wish i could find the wizard's edition :(

Yes Catoplepas he also complained about the AI lol , all points as the reviewer not grasping the battle system , i bet he didn't even realize he could swap between all characters and imajinns.
Also Game Informer gave Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door a 6,7 so don't even bother with that crap lol!

Ezz20131568d ago (Edited 1568d ago )

thanks for the link :)
and yeah i don't trust them that much too

stuntman_mike1564d ago

they should be called Game Mis-Informer with thier slogan "F**K everything else just play COD".
