So White Knight Chronicles looks and sounds pretty good, and starts things off with an interesting story, but when it comes to actually playing the game… it all falls apart. Why? Well, the game plays almost exactly like an MMORPG, only without the MMO part. Yes, the game has myriad online modes and functionality but the gameplay mechanics simply don't translate well into a single-player experience. To put it plainly, White Knight Chronicles is boring. Real boring. And all of the blame falls squarely on the broken combat system.
