Keep It or Trade It?: Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (PS3) | The G.A.M.E.S. Blog

The G.A.M.E.S. Blog writes: "Overall, Ni no Kuni makes for a great Studio Ghibli movie, but it does have some minor issues as game. The gameplay could use some basic improvements, but these flaws are not enough of a hindrance to avoid this game." (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, PS3) 8/10

Good game, just kinda boring. Still think Lost Odyssey is the best RPG this generation.

i say keep it, its already a classic.
Clarence  +   577d ago
Yeah ok lost odyssey was slighty better than FF12 and that's not saying a lot

Ni no kuni is one hell of a game. It's a keeper.

Nice joke there Clarence. Tell me what makes Ni no Kuni a hell of a game compared to Lost Odyssey?
Oh_Yeah  +   577d ago
@riverstars86 tell me.. In a fight do you and your opponent take turns attacking each other and stand in one place? No, lol... in Ni no Kuni you don't have to wait your turn to attack you actually have to move, it's a bit more fast pace and strategic, and if you grew up with pokemon, Ni no Kuni was the type of game you always wanted pokemon to become. Classic turn based rpgs are just outdated man...Lost Odyssey while the story may be good...the gameplay just isn't there and that's the most important part of a game as it is a game.

I don't know if I'd call it boring, personally. The story was decent, but just a little too predictable. And personally, I think Atelier Totori is my favorite RPG of this go-around.
riverstars86  +   577d ago
I got to be honest, I never played that game but it's hard for me to enjoy an RPG without a great story and that is why I like Lost Odyssey so much. I'll have to check out Atelier Totori sometime.

@riverstars86

The nice thing about Totori is that the story is still enjoyable, but it's not an epic tale like most JRPGs. It's a lot more localized around Totori, and the difference in scale is kind of refreshing.

Keep it imo.

Keep it so this game gets more sales than it deserves. Let's hope a JRPG game is being developed for the PS4 so it can be launched when the console launches too!

It's probably the best JRPG I've played since DQ VIII, and the art comes from Studio Ghibli. Hmm, tough choice. I'll opt to keep it obviously.
deefer  +   577d ago
Since DQVIII, eh? So, you're a Level-5 fan, then?
AKS  +   577d ago
I'm a fan of good games, and that's the type Level-5 tends to make. The significance of Ni No Kuni being the best JRPG I've played since DQ VIII isn't that it's also a Level-5 game. Rather, it's the fact that it's the best JRPG I've played since 2005.

i used to sell my games, but after re buying them after a few months , i have started to keep them, and now i have sooo many games, its awesome. keep it.
BanBrother  +   577d ago
Absolutely keep it. Not only is it a JRPG, it is a high rated JRPG. At least in Australia, these things sell out. Keeeeeeeeeeeep it. (If you trade it you don't deserve to play JRPG's lol).
Inception  +   577d ago
I'll keep it with my PS3-JRPG collection Valkyria Chronicles, Tales of Graces f, Disgaea 4, Demon's Souls, Ar Tonelico Qoga, and Ressonance of Fate. Too bad there's no Dark Cloud 3 in this gen :(
insomnium2  +   577d ago
The best JRPG in YEARS so yeah I'd say keep it.
TheDivine  +   577d ago
Great game. The world map is really something special. Don't love the battle system but it does shine during awesome boss battles. Def a keeper. I do agree that Lost Odyssey is the best jrpg this gen although Xenoblade is a almost too close to call it really. Nothing beats a huge classic jrpg with a killer story and characters you fall in love with. Il never forget that opening fight and scene from LO, it was jaw droppingly cool. Xenoblade gave me that same feeling when I emerged into the first huge area and suddenly felt an overwhelming sense of freedom. No No Kuni's map gave me that same rush also. I can best compare Ni No Kuni's map to seeing the map in SM World on snes for the first time. So many secrets and hidden places to find. Damn exciting. I just got the guide for Ni No Kuni and its actually the first guide I've EVER bought. I've been gaming since the NES people. That should tell you all you need to know. Enjoy the game : )

Keep it, this game is a partnership of Studio Ghibli and Level-5. That alone is reason enough. You cannot go wrong with the quality of this game.

Unless you have never been graced by the talents of these two studios.

But if your a fan. Then you definitely know what your getting into.
