Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review - Polygon

Polygon - Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the product of a collaboration between two fan-favorite Japanese teams: RPG developer Level-5 and animated filmmaker Studio Ghibli. It features the bright colors, outlandish characters and serious-yet-cheery story that Ghibli fans expect, but it also has the old-school RPG elements that Level-5 specializes in: grinding, a heavy emphasis on exploration and a sluggishly paced globe-trotting adventure.

Well anyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this review basically says that nothing in the game is as amazing as the graphics so the game is poor. From reading it, I honestly think the reviewer is a bit of a liar and used the demo as the test. I think the score is way to low for this game. 65% is a borderline failure score. The review reads like a 74 or 80 percent. Oh well, his loss. I love this game.

I didnt even want to reply but i actually have the game now so i know that rhis is a trolling article. Either he is no fan of the genre or he is trolling. Some things are opinion and some things should never be written as a review.

Blackdeath_6631278d ago

i agree. if you have strong personal disliking to a genre or game you shouldn't review as it will result in bias. i know many people don't like the jrpg genre and poke fun at it and i think this is just another form of that.

insomnium21278d ago (Edited 1278d ago )

I wish we always had the person who absolutely HATES the genre reviewing every single game on every single site. Either that or then a NEUTRAL person who is open to every genre. It would be nice to have standards in reviews.

This site is looking for hits no question about that. I won't be clicking on their site though. I will however vote it down for the sake of sanity.

@insomnium

You could watch zero punctuation. He hates JRPG's with a passion. :)

I can't remember what magazine it was back in the day, but they had a main review, then 3 other staff writers who gave a mini review along with a score. It was nice because they all liked different things, and you could match the review based on which reviewer you mostly agreed with on stuff.

DigitalAnalog1278d ago (Edited 1278d ago )

Let's not forget, this is the SAME website that gave Halo 4 a low score because it didn't utilize the updated "ADS" mechanic found in modern shooters. Polygon is nothing more than a group of over-entitled journalist who claims they will segregate itself from other gaming sites. Heck, even destructoid pokes fun at it from time to time.

ginsunuva1278d ago

I like how you can tell something reads like a 74 or an 80 percent. Where in the world did you pull those random numbers from???!!

another crap review from polygon (next is EGMnow), we should baycote these sites.
don't get me wrong, i'm a xbox fan and i love my 360 but i played Ni no Kuni and it was super amazing.

HUNK1278d ago

Too bad this review will count against it's Metacritic score. This game deserves better.

*waits for impending 1/5 from Quarter to Three*

HarryMasonHerpderp1278d ago

That Tom Chick guy on Quarter to three is a complete joke. He get's off on giving big games low scores.
Either that or he's just a miserable b*****d kinda like this reviewer here.

TheGOODKyle1278d ago

What proud RPG doesn't have grinding? As long as it's not overbearing (which Ni No Kuni isn't) it shouldn't be listed as a con.

Bathyj1278d ago

Its like marking down a FPS for having reloading.

creeping judas1278d ago

Or walking/moving from fight scenario to the next!!
