Story
The story of White Knight Chronicles is set in the fictional Kingdom of Balandor and follows the adventures of a boy named Leonard who realizes his role in a drama started thousands of years in the past. Working in the proximity of the palace, Leonard stumbles on a plot to kidnap the enigmatic Princess Cisna. As he helps her escape he also becomes aware of his connection to a transformative power which allows him to take on the ancient shape, and harness the devastating power of the White Knight. Yet there are other elements at work here as well, including the forces of an evil wizard with powers that stretch back to the same ancient times which produced the White Knight. With the help of his friends and the power of the White Knight, these are the forces that Leonard will have to face in his quests.

Gameplay
White Knight Chronicles is a Japanese RPG (JRPG) centered around a turn-based battle system in a local single player story-driven campaign that is supported by online multiplayer functionality. Gameplay questing occurs from a third-person perspective and follows Leonard and up to three other AI companions, which can include the customizable character that players assume in multiplayer mode. Once quest members are assembled, players utilize the strengths of the overall group as a whole, and are able to switch between characters at will. Combat being turn-based, players must be able to cue up and control the actions of each character in quick sequence for each combat scenario faced. The game facilitates this via the Function Palette, located in its Battle Preparation menu, allowing players to prepare in advance a series of commands for each character to carry out. These can involve magic or weapons use and can be merged into combos. Multiple palettes can be saved, making it possible to optimize actions for specific types of enemies, and making for quick changing of commands. As with any RPG, throughout quests players accumulate experience which allows their character to level up, purchase items and abilities and generally grow stronger with an eye towards besting the increasingly challenging creatures, bosses and situations faced.

Online Multiplayer
Along with a compelling single player campaign, White Knight Chronicles also contains an exciting online multiplayer component. Within this, up to four players can engage in more than 50 multiplayer quests, with each player creating their own unique customizable character which can be leveled up in a combined group effort, and take advantage of created items and new skills. Although unique to the online game mode, which is designed for multiplayer action, these quests can also be played alone if players wish. In addition to this functionality available in the online multiplayer mode also includes a variety of ways to interact with the wider White Knight Chronicles community on the PlayStation 3 platform. Included in this is town building through the Georama functionality, which allows players to construct a town to their own specifications that can be populated offline with characters from throughout the single player campaign and then taken online where it serves as a base for quests hosted by players, as well as a persistent online location that other players can visit and buy items your town's population has for sale. The game also offers an online interface known as GeoNet that allows players to communicate with others via blogs, forums, quest logs and voice chat functionality, as well as post snapshots from their journeys using the Crystal Camera in-game tool.

Product Description

White Knight Chronicles is an epic fantasy tale about two kingdoms in midst of a longstanding war. The King of Balandor, wishing to put an end to the war, invites the duke of Faria to his castle to celebrate his daughter's coming of age. But this celebration is sabotaged by the Magi, a rogue sect seeking to steal the White Knight, an ancient weapon of war sealed beneath Balandor castle, in order to take over the world. During the ensuing chaos, a young man named Leonard accidentally unlocks the power of the White Knight as he attempts to save the princess. With this power, Leonard manages to fend off the Magi attack, but not before they escape with the princess. With the kingdoms in chaos, Leonard is entrusted with the mission to find the Magi and rescue the princess. With the help of his trusted companions, they travel throughout Balandor and beyond on a quest to save the princess before the Magi unlock the other knights. The journey is fraught with danger, with Magi warriors at every turn, mythical beasts and monsters to battle, and forbidden powers revealed. As Leonard learns more about the power of the Knight, he realizes that unsealing all of them could trigger a calamity that could end the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Feb. 5 2010
By Elvick TOP 100 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The story isn't anything mind blowing, but it helps set up the sequel which is in development. It's still enjoyable, but nothing you've not seen before. Voice acting is decent, lip syncing is awful however. Graphics are great in my opinion. Everything is done in game, so that the armor that you equip shows up in each scene. The environments are huge and only take one load time. Unlike other RPGs, where areas are divided into sections. Even houses are loaded up right there when the town loads. You just open up the door and walk right in, then walk back out.

It requires an install, but load times are quick considering all that loads up. It takes awhile to save which is the only 'problem' I have with the game.

Gameplay wise, it's a lot like Final Fantasy XI and XII. You can move around real time, all enemies move around in real time. When you begin a battle, you have to wait for your action circle to fill up before you attack. [Much like the active time battle system of many RPGs, only you can move around at all times) There's a bar on the bottom of the screen where you assign abilities for use. Magic, Physical Attacks and combos you create. You use the d-pad to change between actions. Soon after you start playing, Leonard gets you the ability to transform into the White Knight. You need at least 5 Action Chips to transform into the White Knight. To earn AC, you need to defeat enemies and you earn them about each turn as well. Later on, when you transform with more and more AC stocked up the White Knight will gain new abilities to use while transformed. The White Knight will be dismissed when you run out of MP. Each move of the WK uses up MP, so you have to be careful at what you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic JRPG with MMO elements. Feb. 6 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fantastic if you're an Otaku or JRPG fan and you know what you're getting into.

Visually, the game is spectacular. With large, detailed, clean environments and nice texture-work. The game features full-paperdolling too (everything you put on a character APPEARS on the character). The battle-system is fun and strategic and once you power up your characters a bit, you can pull off some crazy combos (that you structure yourself).

I think that because of it's release window, this game has been unfairly weighed against Mass Effect 2 and is looked at as mostly a filler till FFXIII arrives.

I've played the Japanese version of FFXIII and while it's brilliant, WKC blows it away in terms of customization (game-play, characters) and simple freedom. Mass Effect is an entirely different animal altogether, it's a thoroughbred Western RPG and is completely dissimilar form WKC.

Personally, I'm having a blast with WKC. I haven't played around on Geonnet (the online component of WKC), but I'm looking forward to this weekend.

If you fundamentally like JRPGs, you will like this. If Oblivion is your cup of tea, or you've never played a console RPG without "final" or "fantasy" in the title, you may be disappointed with this purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too late for this to be worth anything Feb. 20 2014
By Terras
The second one is very cheap, and comes with this included.
More importantly, all online functionality has been removed from both. Deeply crippling the experience.

In no way is this worth a buy anymore.

2.0 out of 5 stars buy the second one instead Sept. 27 2013
By mazazon
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
this is a bit of a PSA

the second white knight chronicles actually comes with the first on disc
the only change is that the one bundled with the second also has the
better combat system they made for WKC 2
