Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch | Geekenstein Review

"Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a prime example of a video game that players wouldn’t simply stumble upon if it weren’t for the raving reviews. It’s the first game in recent memory that I turned to other reviewers for advice to drive my purchasing decision. Upon first glance, it looks like a childish JRPG with a colorful palette, but nothing else really going for it, at least nothing that stands out to grab the consumers attention. The name is off putting and even the box art is bland and boring. Until I saw the shocking number of positive reviews, Ni No Kuni was just another stupidly named game I wasn’t about to give a second of my time.

I’m not sure what drove me to give Ni No Kuni a chance, but I’m glad I did. Throughout my playthrough I found myself constantly pinching myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming. The fact I was so easily ready to pass this masterpiece off as another half-hearted JRPG causes my heart to ache in the worst way." - Dustin Triplett of Geekenstein.com (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 5/5
