Fun, odd game.

Summary: There are a couple of reviews that point out that this game isn't for everyone, and they're correct. The gameplay itself is typical dungeon crawler fare, but the dialog is off the wall, it's almost as if some rather talented 13 year olds discovered swearing last week, and incorporated it into the video game they're developing.
Summary: The Witch and the Hundred Knight is a great buy for fans of top-down J-RPG’s. While the more in-depth elements of the game are less user friendly than others for a hack’n slash, this complexity guarantees various levels of mastery and reward for hardcore players. But I enjoyed myself and found the combat engaging enough.
Summary: Boring: Your mission is to whack trees, kill boring monsters and pick up loot and weapons. You get tochkas which are totally useless and don't provide any fun factors. Weapons are easy to get even tho they are labeled as rare, epic and legendary. You can level them up, but there is no point in doing so as better weapons are lying in wait for you to pick up. Frustrating: This game has a tendency to shut down in the middle of gameplay.
Decent game but requires patience to get to the interesting portions

Summary: The Witch and the Hundred Knight is a rather niche game in an already niche genre so the game will not be for everyone but once some time is put into the game it can become fun and interesting. The tutorial for the game starts off extremely slow and uninteresting so I would recommend playing through at least the first few chapters before you completely pan the game is trash.
Beware! Game has known crash bug causing hours of lost progress.

Summary: I REALLY like this game and want to play it, but people are having issues with the game crashing. Makes me sad, because I appreciate NIS bringing this and other JRPG's, but they need to address a serious crash bug like this one. Check out the Gamefaq board for post about crash bug.
Summary: Fun action rpg with an entertaining cast of characters but the camera can get very annoying at times. Objects do not go transparent so it can be hard to see where you are at times. Also there currently is a very random glitch where the screen will go black and drop you out of the game to main PS3 menu. I've only had it happen once and thankfully had saved not to long before it happened.
Summary: This is a fun game that can be challenging. The time limit concept is interesting. Metallia really is pure evil but it's what makes the game interesting. You could think of this game in terms of other dungeon crawlers that drop random loot so if that's the sort of game you like it might be interesting for you.
Summary: I love the story. It's an rpg where the protagonist just happens to be the villain. Well in the player's case the villain's minion. The music for this game is great, at times it sounds like disgaea. If they ever make a sequal I'm in.
Summary: So I have all but platinum-ed this game and gotten all the endings. (I just have not done an extra area). And I have to say this felt like 50+ hours of meh followed by 1-2 hours of interesting story. Gameplay: Not great. It is an action RPG so it is all about spamming the attack button and occasionally a few spells (I did not need spells until the last chapter). There is a lot of lag between the controller and the game but it is okay once you get used to it.
Summary: Fans of other hits from NIS that are planning to buy this for "more like that" should do more research first. To decide if this game is right for them. The gameplay is button mashing with optional strategy. Let's get that out of the way. This game doesn't have anything worth bragging about in the mechanics department, but it doesn't screw up either. This game is an action RPG. It is mainly for the story.
