Is Ni No Kuni the best PS3 Exclusive?

Playeressence's Furious Francis describes how Ni No Kuni lets him relive the glory days of the JRPG. And how Ni No Kuni's breath taking art and gameplay far outshine other PS3 exclusives. (Level-5, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3)

In it's Genre, I think it is. As a whole, it's on of the best PS3 exclusives this Generation.
Theyellowflash30  +   990d ago
Yeah its seriously good, I'm about 20 hours in and I love it to death. I love it so much I had to write an article about it at 2:00 AM!

"... best PS3 exclusives this Generation"

As opposed to PS3 exclusives from last generation? ;)
Godchild1020  +   990d ago
For the span of the PS3's life cycle this Generation, it has been one of the best.
Ezz2013  +   990d ago
i agree it's the best in that genre and one of the best ps3 exclusives

xenoblade chronicles 92 metacritic dnt forget this jrpg masterpiece.

Nino kuni so far 84% doubt gnna pull off a xenoblade chronicles which was extremely good. And showed how JRPG is done and brought back.

I played nino kuni on ds but ill pick this up again as continues bit more.
Ezz2013  +   990d ago
the game only have 8 reviews
and xenoblade chronicles have 59 review

come back after it get the same amount of reviews
Godchild1020  +   990d ago
We are talking exclusive JRPGs for the PS3 and exclusives in general for the PS3, not all JRPGs released in general. So, there was no reason to bring Xenoblade into this.

Xenoblade and Ni No Kuni are too rare breads of JRPG. They are both fantastic and anybody who likes one should like the other. Its not like awesome console JRPGs come around a lot.
Canary  +   989d ago
In its genre... maybe. But it has pretty stiff competition between Nier, Tales Of, Valkyria Chronicles and Disgaea, to name a few.

I don't think anyone would argue it's THE BEST exclusive PS3 game, because there's really no such thing--the PS3, indeed, all Sony platforms suffer from having too many fantastic exclusives.

It's not like Nintendo, where you can point to Mario or Zelda and say, "THAT is THE game."

It's not like Microsoft, where you can point to Gears of War or Halo and say, "THAT is THE game."

The typical diverse library of Sony consoles has always been their greatest asset... as well as, paradoxically, their greatest weakness.

Technically it's only exclusive here in the west, because it was released on the DS in Japan in 2011.

Since I now have a ps3 though, I'm definitely getting this game. It's about that time for my RPG itch t be scratched again and Ni No Kuni looks to have some very sharp nails...

Aren't they two different games.

The game is really only the same up to a point and by name. Here is a vague comment made by one of the producers:

"Ni no Kuni: Queen of the Holy White Ash’s story will start out the same as the Nintendo DS version’s, but will be told differently after the halfway point. Hino says Queen of the Holy White Ash’s story will continue after the DS version’s, and that the game will also have post-release downloadable content."

They're two different games. Same name, same characters and same geeeneral plot line, but there's much more to the PS3 game. More content, more detail, longer, and compleeeetely different battle system, among other things.
StrongMan  +   990d ago
It is in the prestigious class of great PS3 exclusives.

It's all opinion i guess. Some would say it's the best ps3 exclusive thus far but this gen is far from over.

That's the beauty of having a ps3, there are many great exclusives that have come and gone and many more in store for us in the near future i'm sure.

For me i'm waiting patiently for The Last of Us and The Last Guardian. No matter what you prefer the future looks bright for ps3 gamers.
Walker  +   990d ago
Nope .
CaptainPunch  +   990d ago
We all have our opinions, I can't wait to play this game.
Chrono  +   990d ago
Best PS3 exclusive RPG, probably yes.
Braid  +   990d ago
I'd say it's Metal Gear Solid 4.

Only MGS4 and GTA4 dropped massive 10/10 bombs this gen from almost every non-trolling review website.
Chris558  +   989d ago
Gta4 my ass that game is boring as fuck i would rather play movies based games
Braid  +   989d ago
Says the guy with True Crime avatar? Okay I guess.

I wasn't arguing the game's quality though, I was just mentioning the fact that those two games received near perfect scores from credible reviewers, you may or may not like them and that's not the point here.

We all know gtaiv is a game for teens. None of us intellectual gamers gives two cents for that sorry excuse for a game.
Sugreev2001  +   990d ago
Certainly not THE best PS3 exclusive,but one of the best.Like the above poster mentioned,it's probably the best in it's genre.
abzdine  +   990d ago
there are too many great PS3 exclusives but for me the best one of them all is Heavy Rain!! That game is incredible i've never experienced something like it.

I'm also highly excited for Ni No Kuni.
vikingland1  +   990d ago
I will see for myself upon it's release. C'mon Jan 22 and get here. I have prepaid for it allready all I have to do is pick it up on the 22nd. Real excited for this game.
Clarence  +   989d ago
I would say as this gen jrpg yes. As far as PS3 exclusive, I would rank it in the top 5.

Now Ni No kuni
Theyellowflash30  +   989d ago
Killzone over Ni No Kuni? I'm not trying to knock Killzone and all but that game is just a fairly generic shooter, that doesn't really innovate at all. Its still good though.
nintendoland  +   989d ago
Looks like another cheap kiddy game by sony

this year is crazy for ps3 exclusives, ni no kuni, tales of xillia, beyond, last of us, god of war ascension. especially now that the next console is just months away from reveal and release. exciting is an understatement at this point.
Baddo_Ekkusuchi  +   989d ago
after the excitement is gone, ill cry because of the 9999 damage attack on my wallet
Xer0_SiN  +   989d ago

I seriously need to stop looking at these articles, I have the Wizard edition pre-ordered and it won't be here until the end of the month I bet...and I wanna play it now...
TooTall19  +   989d ago
VC is the best RPG on PS3. I'll be very pleased if Ni No Kuni is as good.
