White Knight Chronicles II

Game Over Online
3 October 2011
  • 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.

White Knight Chronicles II (PS3)

17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: I want to like White Knight Chronicles II; to recommend it to you as a fellow RPG enthusiast. Don’t get me wrong – there are some wonderful aspects to WKCII. It features classic RPG elements like towns brimming with interesting Non-Player Characters to converse with; errands to run and bounties to collect. The visuals and music are inviting and serene. In fact, this is Level-5’s best-looking game yet.

Expert Review

27 July 2011
  • 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
