Mediocrity Breeds Laziness In This Boring RPG Sequel

Game Informer
7 October 2011
  • 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
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.

Test : White Knight Chronicles II

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Un Chevalier blanc et des chroniques. Cela vous dit quelque chose ? Si oui, vous êtes soit fan du premier opus de White Knight Chronicles, soit un fervent détracteur du jeu susnommé. Si vous ne connaissez pas, c’est normal, le premier opus a reçu un accueil frileux de la critique et des joueurs dans nos contrées. Et pour cause. Ce nouvel opus va-t-il changer la donne ? Si vous ne supportez pas ce suspense insoutenable, lisez ce beau test tout rutilant.
  • 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

White Knight Chronicles 2

11 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Om Guitar Hero är en simplifiering eller dumifiering av hur det är att spela en riktig gitarr, så är White Knight Chronicles 2 detsamma när det kommer till japanska rollspel. Det här är ett skräckexempel. Ett monument över dussinrollspelet. Något som för evigt kommer kunna hänvisas till för all framtid när helst någon tycker det är dags att kasta lite skit i östlig riktning.
  • Pros: Hela första spelet på köpet, några fina musikstycken
  • Cons: Tomma speltimmar, ihåligt och tomt, usel historia, anonym presentation, banala strider, återanvända miljöer och fiender, svagt online-läge
