Ni no Kuni as a whole is a great game, but it’s certainly not a game for everyone.
The huge amount of reading, grinding and turn-based combat make it an instant no for many gamers.
Though there is an audience for classic RPGs, the dated gameplay is unlikely to win over many new fans.
There is also the voice of the game, which at many times indicates that it’s geared for grade-schoolers.
While the whole game certainly isn’t all rainbows and unicorns, Ni no Kuni at times, feels an awful lot like playing a Disney movie.
That’s not always a bad thing though and at its best moments the game is beautiful piece of art. 4/5
