The Witch and the Hundred Knight Review
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.
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.
Summary: These days, I tend to find myself gravitating less towards the most high-profile, technically accomplished games that are all but guaranteed to vacuum up awards and critical acclaim, and more towards intriguing, interesting titles that are perhaps somewhat more flawed, but which always, without...
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.

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,...
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.
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
