Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Review

Philippe Baghdassarian: I finally got some free time this weekend and gave Ni no Kuni a try. A try, that's what I said at first, I ended up playing it for 14 hours straight until I realized it was 8 in the morning`` (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) A+/A+

Great score of course! However, how come perfect scores like this doesn't get included in Metacritic?

I would love to but I don't think my website has enough tenure for me to write as a critic, or they they have some kind of submission panel?

I've done a couple of articles on MetaCritic. After a lot of research and a LOT of rejected interviews, I've concluded that it's all very political. You want to get on MetaCritic? You'll need some money and/or connections. After all, GameSpot is on MetaCritic. Why? They're old. They're well-known. That doesn't give them any clout or credentials. They've just been there. The Academy is the same way.

Yep and there both owned by CBS Interactive so that kind of helps also.

This game is going to be hard to get in my area just like when I was trying to get Demon Souls. Now with all these high scores it might be even harder to get.

I've been saying that for ages! But there are currently two perfect scores for this game on Metacritic! At last. http://www.metacritic.com/g...

Right on! play the games you want to play. Metacritic be damned.

The name of the site this review's from isn't in the title.

the internet is usually an equal, if not better, consensus than metacritic IMO. I rarely look to metacritic. you can gauge a game's worth by ppl's comments on it

Metacritic is the biggest sham in gaming everyone knows that. They way they pick and choose which reviews to include is ridiculous and not consistent. They have been asked before and they don't even give a clear explanation.

Good example and not trying to start no console war bs but they have Mario galaxy 1 and 2 as the highest rated games with one only having like 70 reviews aggregated into the score and another only 90, yet Uncharted 2 sits at a point less only because they included over 130 reviews for it and pick and chose which to add. Had Uc2 had fewer reviews aggregated it probably would be higher than both those games.

Anyway 20 plus hours in to Ni No Kuni and i love it!!!!!! Currently sailing around (yes you sail a boat! lol)
