"Ni No Kuni II abandons all of the quirkiness and uniqueness the first game had and in the process loses its identity. Ni No Kuni II manages to be worse than its predecessor in every way possible"
Every review you write, From Monster Hunter World to South Park to this game is just a complete cryfest. If you are such an expert on gaming, make your own game. If not, give it a rest. No one cares that you hate great games. Your opinion means nothing. (Irony alert! Neither does my opinion of your opinion.) However, you certainly prove that no one, but no one will ever build a statue to critics. Cheer up.
And these journalists are supposed to be professionals...any jackass can make a site and review these days. All the hard work by devs goes to gutter because this kid didnt like it and its "his opinion" dragging meta down or give false info to users...review the game for what it is than what its prequel was...
So if someone can't make a game they shouldn't have an opinion on what they thought about a game they played? Silly.
they can have opinion but giving 55 when its averaging 85 is silly...
That is correct. But, if we follow said logic: So if someone can read a review they shouldn't have an opinion on what they read about a game that was reviewed? Silly.
It's a good game, being the edgy low review isn't getting a click from me.
Wow. This review is just spray and pray, but manages to do it in a vague enough way that doesn’t convince me he even played it. And *I* haven’t even played it lol, so I should be the easiest to convince! I’m paraphrasing but it’s basically “everything sucks, from that rock over there, to that guy I won’t name, to that riff in that spot that’s always sucked, to the script parts without VO which I don’t mind in every other game that has them except this one, to I didn’t like the first game either and didn’t care while I played this one, it will put you to sleep” You don’t justify or give examples of anything. What if it doesn’t put me to sleep? Define “special”. Why is there enough content but not enough? What will put me to sleep? If it doesn’t will you redact lol? Why does this need a higher difficulty when you already struggled with gameplay in the first one? What’s this one gimmick you say all the characters rely on? You don’t even say what it is lol
Part one was an amazing game, which isn’t saying much considering last GEN really was mostly about multiplayer games, but that being said I appreciated part one and I really liked it a lot, but this game, Man I was so disappointed, I figured it being on the PS4 and as good as the first one was that it would be nothing short of amazing, it was the weirdest game I played in a long time, such a shame because final fantasy has change so much you can’t tell if it’s even Final Fantasy anymore same goes for dragon quest, Oh well onto the next one
I've played an hour of it & it's charming so far.Seeing that score I didn't bother giving it a click.
I'm about 10 hours in and I really like it. It's a throwback to those PS2 JRPGs.
Anyone can make a website and review games but that doesn't make them professional critics. Ni No Kuni II is by no means perfect but a 5.5 is pretty laughable.
“A poorly written plot” Wow, the review is even more poorly written than the game itself. Would you look at that? It reads like a middle schooler wrote it.
this game is one of the greater disappointments. a far cry from the first one. nino 2 is a watered down mess for casuals. but some people don‘t seem to be able to get past the brand judging by some comments.
Yeah because your opinion is the truth
The game is great and the musical score is awesome.
Nice sarcasm bro
I'm serious. I enjoy the game a lot and the music makes it so much more enjoyable. Music in RPGs is a deal maker or breaker for me. I played fairy fencer F and though the game is ok, the music is so wacky I dread turning it back on.
I give Nino a 9. Awesome JRPG with heart and charm.
NNK2 has been a complete disappointment. I'm currently 28 hours into the game and I have more to complain about than I do to celebrate. The visuals feel like a downgrade from NNK1, though it might simply be because they weren't improved on from the previous generation. It also doesn't help that every area is woefully uninspired in design or copy pasta like the caves and shrines. At 28 hours in I'm fighting the same enemies I fought when the game first started. They've added about one less common enemy with each new zone. It's a snooze fest fighting the new element or color of each enemy you've already been fighting for two dozen hours. The kingdom builder mode is tied to a special currency only gained during playtime and is arbitrarily restricted by how much money you can store at any given time, requiring you to either leave the game on for extended periods of time and babysit it as your coffers fill, or ignore the kingdom except when necessary. Difficulty in the game is also a complete joke. It's mash 'x' to win in the worst way possible. Did I mention none of the characters have any real personality or any reason to care about them since they don't really bother giving you any information about them and so few things are voice, or spoken by the non-main characters, that you have little reason to remember they even exist. The music though is amazing. I have no idea what the author of this review was listening to while playing the game but it's the one truly standout feature.
I'll say this, having completed it earlier today - Its still a great game, but Studio Ghibli's direct input felt like it was definitely missing story wise. Still great, but not as...moving and a touch more predictable. Smoother gameplay-wise than the first (for the most part*), but not as perfect story-wise. *don't wanna outright say "fuck the skirmishes", but they were definitely my least favorite parts of the game.
Dude what are you even talking about!? A 5/10... you may want to reconsider your profession. It’s not as good as the original but in no way objective way is this game a 5/10. It’s fine if you don’t like it but if you’re critiquing a game you need to learn to base your score on fact and not your opinion and if you can’t do that then find someone else to review the game.
Oh look, it's one of "those" reviews!
I'm all for reviewers having their own opinion and not going with the popular opinion, but this site doesn't seem to like many games at all.
A 5.5 outta 10? I think its time you quit your day job because you suck at it.
