Game Guys review - Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

What do you get if you combined a legendary animation studio with a respected video game developer? You get Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Which. A collected effort with Hayao Miyazaki's Studio Ghibli ('Spirited Away', 'Princess Mononoke') and Level 5 (Dragon Quest VIII and the Professor Layton series), Ni No Kuni provides a comfortably-paced, story-centric role playing game that provides for an excellent gameplay experience.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've been really interested in this game for a while, and I'm glad it's getting good reviews.

Get it. That is all I have to say, you won't be disappointed. I think of it as the spiritual successor to Dragon Quest VIII. There are a lot of gameplay similarities.

Really gotta try this out not the biggest anime fan ever but the art style looks great,been hearing so much great things about it.

SolidDuck1268d ago

I'm not an anime fan either but the visuals are fantastic, I'm not even a jrpg fan, except for the great ones, I can't play the just ok ones. Ni no kuni is def great.

Easily the best RPG of this generation. But im 8 hours in and there's still no alchemy??

Be patient! You're almost there!

And may I say that that boss battle is hilarious lol.

Until you get your third team member, the game is still sort of in the introduction phase.

And this can take nearly 10 hours...depends how you play.

Not everything is introduced right away.

I'm somewhere about 25-30 hours into the game and I'm really enjoying it. The story is amazing. The visuals are great. And I just hate putting the controller down when I quit playing the game. I have one minor issue with the game.

*Minor Spoilers ahead*

When you first get Esther and Swaine, they just feel like really dumb AI. They die quite often if you aren't the one controlling them. I got tired of them dying so much, so I went and trained for a couple of hours. Now, I don't have that issue, but it was really frustrating when I ended up facing all of the bosses by myself halfway through the battle.

*End Spoilers*

But, other than that, the game is fantastic. I can't wait to play some more of it today.

i try to use her as my main healer and let oliver do the dmg, that way both survive and bosses go down nicely. use her and run around collecting blue orbs, thats allways a good thing. =D
