Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch PlayStation 3 Review
22 February 2014
Excerpt: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has been on my “to play” list for quite some time now and while this is an effective spoiler for the rest of the review, I’m annoyed at myself for leaving it for so long!
Pros: Stunning art design throughout, Ghibli Studios animated cut-scenes are beautiful, Voice overs are superb and full of spirit, Lots of great characters, Deep and involving battles system, Creature capture / levelling system, 60+ hours of gameplay and beyond for those willing to explore everything
Cons: Too many tutorials at times, Main battle mechanics don’t really take off until after around 10 hours of gameplay, More of those gorgeous cut-scenes would have been nice, Voice acting is a little more broken up with sub-titles only sections than I would have liked
Excerpt: I have been a long time fan of Studio Ghibli and own several of their movies including Ponyo , My Neighbor Totoro , Whisperer of the Heart , and The Cat Returns . When I heard about them developing an RPG, I was sold right then and there.
Pros: Great story, characters and visuals that you would expect from a Studio Ghibli production.
Cons: Some of the quests are repetitive; more voice acting would have been nice.
Excerpt: Level-5 has returned to form with Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch , a game that is beautiful in more ways than one. It's stunning to look at, yes. But it's also unapologetically sweet, a quality that most games wouldn't touch with a stick. This is a game that makes you feel good.
Excerpt: Is Studio Ghibli and LEVEL-5's Collaboration The Greatest of This Generation? Ni No Kuni offers RPG and anime fans the chance to experience a game world fashioned by the greatest of development teams from each genre.
Ni No Kuni Review: A Memorable, Charming JRPG Experience
19 March 2013
Excerpt: From developer Level-5 and animation studio Studio Ghibli comes the collaboration of any JRPG fans dreams in the form of Ni No Kuni. A drop-dead gorgeous effort with some light hearted humor and a serious dose of adult themed issues that I must admit took me by surprise.
