GameDynamo - "Getting into a game that is best described as a Fable rip-off (which might be a good thing considering the disappointment fans had from Fable 3) and set up to look like an MMO, things seem pleasing enough."
That is a very poor score, "Fans of the first WKC will love WKC2 – newcomers to the series will find it completely confusing and frustrating. Only those who love cutscene-saturated JRPGs with a very 80s/90s feel to them will enjoy WKC2" Sounds good to me. .
What do they say though, That is the key. A number doesnt discribe gameplay. i cant get there for some reason so i cant comment on it myself.
just got my copy , i will play it later on
i just hope they actually support this game, waited months for the Gr13 weapons to become available but they never came -.-
It just so happens that the 80/90s JRPGs are my favorite type of games. I could care less what review scores this gets, I enjoy the hell out of some WKC.
I enjoyed WKC despite getting low reviews. The online town building and questing was awesome. i don't how they called this game a fable rip off?? its nothing close to being like fable. I will pick this game up eventually so i can build another town =D Unfortunately right now this game comes at a bad time with battle field 3..uncharted 3. gears 3 and skyrim on my list. Plus i just got Dead island.
I love wkc2. Don't understand the hate
count me as another wkc supporter. has a very ff12 feel to it. throw in some dragon quest n dark cloud add some online wow type questing shake and stir and you get WKC.
What matters is what the article says, not the scores! Scores are always going to be different for different people. Since when was a 60 such a bad score? A 60 is decent, because WKC2 is a decent game. It's just not good or great! Or is it... it's really up to the person playing it. Even if it had gotten an 80 or a 90 there'd still be people complaining... just my two cents.
"Over the years, JRPGs have connected less and less with audiences outside of Asia" false "as western RPGs have come to the forefront and into their own, dominating the US, Eupopean, and Australian markets. " false. Jrpgs overall still sell far more. The highest selling rpg this year in the states was a jrpg "With plenty of obscure JRPGs on the shelves, many gamers didn't even realize White Knight Chronicles existed." false
i cant disagree with the last statement, i didnt know WKC released until sony sent me an email advertising that it was released a bit ago. i heard about it a long time ago but kinda forgot when the release date kept changing. having never played the first WKC i was kinda skeptical because of the review scores of both games, but ended up going and getting the game anyways, its the only game that ive played since getting it and its great. i cant believe this doesnt get great reviews and more sales. fantastic game that the media seems to hate. i can see myself playing this game for a long time.
Why play on a review on some website or by IGN I say if you want the game and have fallen in love with the series get the game. I baught WKC2 and I love the game.
I don't understand why this game gets so much hate. I think it might stem from the 4 years in development after it was suppose to be a RELEASE title for PS3. The hype had just built up to unobtainable per portions. Personally, I love the game. It is like playing an MMO without the monthly fees, Monster Hunter if you will, in more traditionally Turn Based combat. Haven't beaten it yet but for now it is... Graphics:9 Story:7 Gameplay:10 Overall: 8.5
About the same for me
The first thing I noticed about the game when I started playing was the huge bump in graphics(which really weren't shabby to begin with) between the second and first. Armor is more shiny, clothing and hair looks wet when it rains in-game, very lush environments(if a bit borrowed from other games, did I just go through the waterway from FFXII?).
Meh. The first one was a game I was incredibly hyped for...it was pretty disappointing. Gonna skip on this one.
Fable rip-off??? WTF?? this game is nothing like Fable, at least not the 1 WKC, and from what i've seen of the 2nd one, i hardly think it would resemble Fable.And i dont mean that in a good or bad way, i like both games but they are nothing alike Anyway, i never actually finished the 1st game, i can say that it was the 1st time that i thought a game had maps that were TOO BIG. Sometimes i just wanted to go on with the story and even the smallest area would be absurdly big in size and take forever to get through.
i havnt beaten the game yet but i can already tell this is going to be one of my favorite games of this generation. i dont understand the hate that this game gets
Starting our (TheParanoidGamer) review tomorrow. I've actually enjoyed it quite a bit, despite all of the issues.
"Fable ripoff" = fail. This game has... well, it has NOTHING in common with Fable. "doesn't even begin with you playing the main character that you just spent ten minutes designing the look of during the character creation stage" = second fail. Your character isn't the main character. Second fail also doubles as third fail, since the author never played and first and thus didn't understand this. "yep, so here I am, a new gamer to the WKC series and left with no backstory" = massive fail. THE FIRST GAME IS ON THE F*CKING DISC! IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAYED PART 1, YOU DO THAT FIRST, YOU DUMB*SS!!! "ridiculous voice over" = fail. It may not be spectacular, but nor is it cheesy and over-the-top. "a convoluted and bland fantasy story" = fail. There is nothing convoluted, and- so far- it's actually an interesting take on the traditional "save the world" story. "along with music and sounds right out of the 90s" = fail. The ONLY thing the music reminds me of is FFXII, which is from last decade, NOT the 80s or 90s. "The problem is slogging through the storyline and dealing with frustrating battles that often seem wonky and physics-defying, rather than smooth, hyperkinetic, and fast-paced" = fail. So this guy was looking for fast, easy fights. Despite everything said before, the reviewer must a a current-gen gamer. This has got to be one of the worst reviews I've ever seen.
