Mediocrity Breeds Laziness In This Boring RPG Sequel

  • Conclusion: Concept: Polish the gameplay mechanics of White Knight Chronicles while adding five new single-player chapters and tons of multiplayer content Graphics: The crisp visuals occasionally surprise but most of the environments are too generic to be beautiful Sound: The below-average voice-acting and white-bread fantasy soundtrack aren't going to help keep you awake while slogging through this game's lengthy quest Playability: If you didn't play the first game and try to jump...

White Knight Chronicles II

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Nearly two years ago, the original White Knight Chronicles (WKC) blended offline and online RPG play by giving you an avatar that could be used for both - he’d play a part in the offline storyline, and also be used for online combat. Unfortunately, the combat system was quite cumbersome because it tried to blend MMORPG-style controls with a console action RPG’s, and the results weren’t pretty. They were highly-flawed, but somewhat forgivable since it was a first attempt.

  • Conclusion: Ce n'est pas ce White Knight Chronicles II qui va sauver la saga. Il reprend tous les défauts du premier : système de combats raté, scénario banal, héros peu charismatique, graphismes datés et ennui qui pointe vite le bout de son nez. On se rabattra sur le multi en ligne bien plus sympathique sans pour autant révolutionner le genre. Les fans du premier seront aux anges. Les autres... c'est moins sûr.
  • Pros: Un univers sympa, Une durée de vie conséquente, Le premier opus intégré sur le blu-ray, Avatar personnalisable à souhait
  • Cons: Système de combat raté, Scénario convenu, Héros pas du tout charismatique, Menus peu clairs, Ultra répétitif
