Excerpt: White Knight Chronicles 2 may be named like a sequel, but because its first part is a "remastered" version of the previous game, it is closer to being an expanded remake. Players can choose to start at the beginning of either part, and can also choose whether to import data from the previous game into this one. For this review, I chose to use my imported WKC 1 data to start over from the beginning of the first part.
Excerpt: The ending of the original White Knight Chronicles made it abundantly clear that those hoping to see a conclusion to the story of Leonard and his companions would have to wait until a sequel was made. Unfortunately, those who waited with the hope of seeing a good payoff in White Knight Chronicles II are likely to be deeply let down by its lazy storytelling combined with a lack of new features and more tedious sidequesting.
Summary: While not a long, epic struggle by any means, Dream Chronicle: The Chosen Child is still a fun, interesting game. Anyone looking for a solid, classic adventure game can pick this up without hesitation. The graphics are beautiful and the sound does a great job of not getting in its own way. There aren’t really any flaws to speak of, but there aren’t any amazing moments either.

Excerpt: Not too long ago, I saw a Japanese animation that had the human dream world as the main theme. Well, I won't start to tell you what that was all about, nor give details that are not important. The question is: What's that got to do with a game? Well, it's simple: dreams and slumber are the themes of th...
Conclusion: Al met al is White Knight Chronicles II een game met twee gezichten. De singleplayer wordt te vaak afgebroken en langdurig gerekt, waardoor het nooit echt weet te imponeren. Dat is echter niet de reden om deze game te (blijven) spelen. Met een enorm aantal sidequests en de online mogelijkheden is er genoeg te doen als gigantische ridder. Echte fanaten kunnen zelfs weer aan de slag met het eerste deel wat uiteindelijk resulteert in honderden uren speelplezier.
Pros: Genoeg te doen dankzij de guilds, Verbeterd vechtsysteem, Online is waar deze game straalt, Bevat het eerste deel wat bovendien verbeterd is
Cons: Verhaal wordt te vaak afgebroken en langdurig gerekt, Game komt langzaam op gang, Avatar personage nog steeds nutteloos, Geen introductie voor nieuwkomers
