But in the name of game balance, those moments are rare in White Knight Chronicles, and the result is a slog between exciting fights.
The Japanese role-playing game follows Leonard, a commoner in love with his kingdom's princess. When she's kidnapped by evildoers intent on harnessing her secret magical powers, he sets out to save her with the help of some friends and an ancient relic that lets him transform into the White Knight."
