Product Description:
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is an epic tale of a young boy, Oliver, who embarks on a journey to become a master magician and bring back his dead mother from the parallel world of Ni no Kuni. Along the way he encounters some extraordinary characters, many of whom become helpful allies. They guide Oliver as he explores the vast world and learns the magical skills that will make him strong enough to face his most deadly foes, and ultimately survive an encounter with the White Witch herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Gameplay in a Beautiful Package Jan. 24 2013
By Stephen
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start off with addressing the feature that most people are getting this game for: the visuals. With designs and cinematics by Studio Ghibli, this is simply one of the most visually stunning games in anyone's collection. The world and characters are filled with so much charm, you'll instantly be sucked in. The story is a tad on the juvenile side and the voicework takes a little to get used to, but after a while it won't matter; you'll eventually be absorbed into a wonderful journey.

The gameplay is a mix of the Tales of series with a little bit of Pokemon. There's so many creatures to collect and have them do battle; You'll definitely have a couple of favourites! Overall, this game remined me of what RPG's used to be when I was younger: charm, a great world map, open travel, interesting characters. I'm definitely recommending this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game. One you can't miss. Feb. 13 2013
By Paul
Verified Purchase
This is a must buy for any JRPG lover. Don't be fooled by the kiddish design, or by anyone who says that this game is meant for kids. It's suitable for all ages, be they children or adults who can still appreciate the childhood they once had. The story is great, not New York Times Bestselling novel great, but it provides a heartwarming and engaging experience. The gameplay is superb, with the familiars adding a lot of diversity. However, the game itself isn't overly difficult, so if you dislike that this may not be your cup of tea. One of its best characteristics is the art design. Made by Studio Ghibli, it essentially looks like a film that they would make.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As an Adventure RPG this game is wonderful. The graphics are amazing and I would rather see the crisp digital animation in lieu of the traditional ink & paint animation (the latter suffers from low framerate, washed-out colour and soft details). And I love the imaginative ideas that this game comes up with, like repairing broken hearts. There are good messages in this game, even if the overarching story is a dark one. I was hoping that there would be a lot more audio dialogue in the game but it drops off quickly. Certainly for Drippy's training or exposition this would have helped the game and given that it is a blu-ray title there is plenty of storage for it.

However, this game went with a particular style of JRPG gameplay and I think that it suffers for it due to the inconsistencies in difficulty and pacing. Among those issues are: 1) Long grinding through labyrinth parts, where enemies are every few steps and the battle intros & outros waste so much time. You will experience the same battles over and over again; 2) In the world map many low-level enemies will flee instead of flight, so why won't they do the same in the labyrinth parts? No, in these places they all want to fight, and they respawn in the same fixed places 10 seconds after defeat; And, 3) Battles are strategic and in real time. What this means is that while you're fumbling around menus trying to find that sandwich to restore health, meanwhile your enemies -- especially the tough bosses -- are still attacking you! It also hurts that two of your first three familiars don't have defence moves so you have to swap them out quickly for something that does before you take too much pummelling. This is not a fair game mechanic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game overall: for JRPG noobies too... Jan. 29 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know I am one! Never played the genre before so I needed a little bit of adaptation for the gameplay style and written dialogue. But the game do a really good job of taking your hand from start with a gradual tutorial implementing the gameplay. Obviously, the visuals are superb. The story reminds me of the anime back in my own childhood. The child missing one parent, two parents and all that stuff about separation anxiety... A great, different experience so far.

EDIT: After 35 hours in I went from 4 stars fun to 5.

Great game! Awesome challenging gameplay. It's like the perfect Pokemon game without the ridicule and cliché storyline. Only downside: too much explaining.

Amazing game. I ordered it with amazon and got it THE NEXT DAY.

The game itself is amazing and I would recommend to all my friends who love RPGS :)

The only thing that sucks is that it is REALLY easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous game, great intro to JRPG's Feb. 1 2014
Verified Purchase
While I definitely tired of the game's hand-holding, I understand that Ni no Kuni is targeted at younger audiences. No matter your age, though, it is a visually beautiful game and lives up to everything I would hope for from Ghibli.

In terms of gameplay, simply put, if you like other Level-5 games, you'll like this. If you find their games tepid and repetitive, well, at least you have spectacular art and a thoughtful story to keep you going.

Ni no Kuni is a solid jrpg. Combat is a little hard to get use to, but it is paced well. Boss fights are gimmicky which jeeps them entertaining. Read more
