Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review | Independent.co.uk

Full of memorable locations, Ni no Kuni serves up a wide world full of different landscapes for you to explore, from almost-blown volcanoes to the bathing suited-paradise Castaway Cove.

Although they follow the usual green woods/desert/fire/ice formula, each is rendered lovingly, with custom-made monsters and scenery.

There are always more items to be discovered, bounty hunts to be undertaken and experience points gained.

Scored with a wonderful, if perhaps overly-dramatic musical arrangement, Ni no Kuni lives up to the literal translation of its title – a second world – and one lovingly designed for you to spend hours exploring in all its beautifully rendered glory. (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 5/5

I am really enjoying this game, but after 15-20 hours it's still holding my hand a bit too much for my liking. It starting to become a tad annoying, needed to open up sooner and let you do things without being reminded so often.

I really wish more games would take the Demon's/Dark Souls approach and let you play freely almost from the start. Two different types of Rpg's I know, but more games could learn from those two.
