Eurogamer: White Knight Chronicles Import Review

Having spent far too much of my time ploughing through self-consciously epic Japanese games lately, I can't tell you how much of a relief it is to come across one that doesn't take itself too seriously. Despite being marketed as The Ultimate Next-Gen RPG in Japan, plastered all over billboards and convenience stores for months leading up to release, White Knight Chronicles turns out to be unexpectedly lighthearted. It's a game with birds that can inexplicably project holographs from their eyes, drunken midget furries lying around on farms, airships, princesses and ridiculous giant-robot transformation sequences, replete with awesomely wailing J-Rock guitars. Thank f*** for a game with a sense of humour in place of misplaced pomposity.

8/10 is not bad from eurogamer

I've been waiting for a meaty JRPG and it will likely take months for a western conversion. Does anyone know if it has English subtitles/text option?

Decent score.

I'm starved for an epic JRPG, so this should be right up my alley. Probably my most anticipated game of the year. I also like the FREE online component too.

Great work, Level 5.

of the genre where I don't trust review scores or other people's opinions. It really depends on what you are looking for. Even if you claim the story is cliche it just might work for some people.

I used to love the Dragon Question series (I played 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 on the SNES) and a lot my friends didn't want to play it because it doesn't have nice graphics.

On topic: I must say I'm surprised of the nice score coming from Eurogamer. 8/10 to me is very good. I wonder what they think of SO4.
