In the end, Level-5 set out to create traditional JRPGs at a time where fans and critics are bemoaning the lack of traditional JRPGs.
loved the first one , cant wait to play the second part !!!! and the psp game too
loved the first and the psp game number 2 soon come
I'm thinking of importing the PSP version over here. But i'm not sure if US Psp can play EU games. I've read mixed answers everywhere >.< Honestly, this game can't come sooner. The online is amazing. I hope the next franchise they do has an online too!
PSP, like PS3, is region free, meaning it can play all games, from all territories.
Agreed. The first one was awesome. The only problem i had with it was you could only play the online up to the point you were in the Single Player, which sucked for me since i had started a new game plus before going into multiplayer :/ Though i happily beat the game a second time just to enjoy MP. :D
because fans had high hopes for this game. It's hard to say how a game maker with a solid history of great games can take a medieval setting and giant powered mecha and not have it turn out awesome.
Not to mention, they skipped out on making Dark Cloud 3 for this junk.
Yea I like this game but it really isnt anything special. Dark Cloud was. I loved those games. I really want an HD collection and eventually DC3 rather than more games like this.
I only hear bad remarks from reviewers. Everyone I know who played it liked it.
Then i say if you are interested in it you should definitly play it.
I really enjoyed the first one but I hope they polished some of the details for the second one, like doors opening towards you passing through you.
The only people that I know of who don't like the game are those who didn't play the online part of it and only played the single player part. As far as I know, everyone who has picked up WKC 2 loves the game. IMO, WKC is easily one of the best games this generation. 900+ hours in it and I still find my self playing it 24/7. Same can be said with MAG, another under appreciated game. As far as why people don't like the game generally? Well it is a JRPG... Not to mention, the online component of the game does evolve a lot of grinding and you really have to get into the game to learn how everything works. Basically your typical casual gamer would be turned off instantly from the game, (especially if they saw how many times they had to do Best Served Cold to get to GR15, lol). But for me, stuff like grinding and all is no different from traditional JRPGs and games like FFXI, Phantasy Star Universe, Phantasy Star Online ep 1 and 2, etc... I've gone on too much about this, but the people who review WKC sound like they pretty much just review it because it's their job and they never really cared for it in the first place. Probably rushed through the offline and spent like an hour only with the online component at most.
Pretty much THIS. WKC is a whole ...SOLO and multi .. Sure the story mode is cliché at times but that's not the point .. Online is customisable engaging with lots of quests and transforming knights !!i mean how can that be bad ? i know it's not. Review from people who didn't have time to try online only played 1/10th of the game .. and that's why i laugh at them
If it doesn't have a fps element to the rpg like what WRPGs have done these days they aren't going to give a good JRPG a shot. Thats the way i see it. I love WKC and plan on getting part 2 first day. Reviewers these days don't know a good game if it kicked them in the ass.
You see, I enjoyed the first one until I got stuck at a certain part and that totally killed the need to play the game for me.
I had to find some red jewel lizard. Just after the auction. EDIT: @dangert12 other games came out and you know what it's like. It's hard to get back into it after leaving it so long.
if you enjoyed it why not fink a guide or walk through if you find it a little to hard in places
it was almost the same for classical background jrpg like Blue dragon, Lost Odyssey or Infinite Undiscovery. All great RPG but for some strange reasons, critics have not been very receptive. The sad thing is a lot of people will miss great games because of that, instead they'll only play overhyped blockbusters.
I'll be eventually getting WKCII. I don't trust those bad reviews. As far as I've seen it looks like a good game, maybe not great, but still good.
I'm playing it right now. 60 hours in. One of the best games I've ever played. I don't understand the reviews at all.
because reviewers don't know how to properly review games all they do is complain its like one game and not like another WKC was excellent, had a great story (though a little cheesy to start finished great) and the online was amazing, all the forums on the WKC online has been lit up with positive things about WKC2 and im excited to continue the story
With a game like WKC I'd advised people to check user reviews first and not the reviews being done on "official" game sites, i.e IGN, TheSixthAxis ( only reviewed the offline portion of WKC II), Eurogamer. I've only seen one decent review of WKC II and that was from Gamespot UK. "White Knight Chronicles II is a game with a lot of value, but it's one that demands a large amount of effort before it shows its riches. " http://www.gamespot.com/ps3...
Why the hate? Ever since the first game was announced, I was incredibly hyped for it. I soaked in every bit of news released and counted the days till release once a date was given for America. Fast-forward a few years when I finally get my hands on it...I popped the disc into my PS3 and within the first 2 hours I felt a huge disappointment. So many broken mechanics, poor graphics (even for its time), very generic story, a few poor design choices, and a very short game. Did these things get fixed for the 2nd game? I have no idea, but I know I'll be picking it up with my hopes nowhere near as high as they were when I purchased the first game.
Because haters gotta hate. WKC ROX! Let's buy it up so they'll make a part 3. :)
:( I hope we see more. But from what I recall Level-5 planned it to be a "duology". So I think the next one, while it may happen, might not be for PS3 (like the PSP one) or be from LEVEL-5. I'm just happy to see that they [D3] are bringing WKC2 over to US. I was sad when all the uncertainty about WKC2 being localized was going around.
Perfect example of what I'm talking about: (Skip to 11:00 mins in the video) http://www.youtube.com/watc... And they say JRPGs are dead... lol.
Dude, I'm really digging the cast times. I remember casting Heal III+ in WKC, and it happening after all my teammates were dead <3 Ooh good times. The sad thing is JRPGs are dying. We don't nearly get enough RPGs as we did in the ps2 era. :( WKC is a great JRPG, but most people don't review the game as a JRPG. They rate it like it's CoD, over the top action, instant gratification.
