The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review

PlayDevil
22 May 2014
  • Excerpt: You take control of the Hundred Knight, a creature summoned from the nether by the swamp witch Metallia. The reclusive witch has never left her swamp, but now desires to see the world outside. Rather than going on vacation, however, Metallia has commandeered the Hundred Knight’s services to spread her swamp throughout the land. You, as the legendary but tiny warrior, are the only one capable of destroying the hidden pillars that prevent the swamp’s spread.

  • Conclusion: The Witch and the Hundred Knight is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Blood, Crude Humor, Fantasy Violence, Language, Partial Nudity, and Sexual Themes. When you destroy enemies, red and purple goo can sometimes appear, so I guess that would be blood.  But most of the enemies you fight are cute little things like sprouts and pumpkin heads and caterpillars, so the violence isn’t too grisly or horrific.

  • Excerpt: In some ways, you have to applaud the attempt at a darker storyline and an emphasis on fast-paced combat. After all, that's really what the market demands, isn't it? However, when you're still rooted in archaic stereotypes, the humor remains corny and oftentimes painful rather than amusing, and the gameplay and control has its fair share of issues, you won't succeed.

Lackluster action RPG has potentially offensive content.

Common Sense Media
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know that The Witch and the Hundred Knight is an action RPG game that has plenty of violence (such as the destruction of hundreds of fantasy characters), blood, partial nudity (exposed breasts), sexually charged dialogue, and moderate profanity (from "s--t" to "t-ts").

The Witch and the Hundred Knight

Playstation Illustrated
6 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The Witch and the Hundred Knight is a rather surprising, richly detailed work of art. Many of the backgrounds in the levels are decorated with lush plant life, detailed tile patterns, and lots of shadow and light accents. One drawback of all this is they seem to have forgotten playability. It’s inconvenient to move the camera, and sometimes you just can’t get a good angle.

  • Summary: Nippon Ichi Software is one hell of a developer. One day they could be lighting the world on fire with one of the most celebrated games in a genre ( Disgaea ), and the next, they could be milking a franchise into oblivion ( Disgaea Infinite ). Strategy RPGs are their forte, but they've made 2D platformers, action-RPGs, and a whole lot more.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review – PlayStation 3

Game Chronicles
29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The Witch and the Hundred Knight is the newest offering in the Nippon Ichi rich lineage of JRPG games that includes the Disgaea, La Pucelle, and Rhapsody franchises.  Like those titles, The Witch and the Hundred Knight is far from the standard turn-based RPG we have come to expect from the east, instead hearkening back to the golden days of action-based isometric RPG titles like Diablo and Gauntlet.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review: Disgaea-killer this is not

PlayStation Universe
26 March 2014
  • Summary: A hardcore NIS experience for only the hardcore fan. Bad story pacing and tedious combat make this a bore for the laymen fan who is not already drawn in by NIS's humor and charm.
  • Pros: The raunchy humor that is not afraid to be scandalous, Character artwork that maintains NIS's standards
  • Cons: The worst musical score in recent memory for an RPG, The abundance of cutscenes, Lackluster story saved only by its humor

GameSpot
26 March 2014
  • Summary: In many ways, The Witch and the Hundred Knight represents a distinct departure from NIS's norm. Instead of following the company's usual strategy role-playing game formula, Witch is a loot-collecting, combat-heavy action RPG. Rather than 2D sprites, the game is populated with 3D character models. And where most NIS offerings feature a lighthearted, humor-infused story, The Witch and the Hundred Knight features a dark story beneath its charming anime illustrations.
  • Pros: Lots of varied, interconnected gameplay systems to explore, Weighty, challenging combat makes every hit feel substantial, Memorable and enchanting soundtrack
  • Cons: Many gameplay elements are barely explained, Several dungeons drag on for far too long, Deplorable lead character
