GameInformer writes: "White Knight Chronicles is an unusual beast. On the surface, it's a straightforward role-playing title, with the expected mix of daring heroes and princesses in need of rescuing. At the same time, the game plays host to an extensive multiplayer component that exists largely separated from the story, in which up to four friends can work together to tackle a number of designated quests. The two components are united by the large open game world through which you'll wander in both single- and multiplayer excursions. The real-time, turn-based battles and extremely large areas that make up that world are reminiscent of a massively multiplayer game in scope and style. We had the opportunity to play the first several hours of the single-player game this month, and got a good feel for the game's combat, story, and skill system."
