Summary

If the dazzling production values don't win you over, the storyline, characters and engaging combat will.

We like

  • Looks and sounds amazing. Dazzling art-design and musical score.
  • Strong storyline that has genuine moments where you'll feel touched.
  • Engaging battle system that grows in challenge.

We dislike

  • Side-quests involving spells offer little challenge. You're just going through the motions.
  • Can be irritating when you just want to go from A to B quickly, but weak enemies keep attacking.

(continued from previous page) ...the fun is juggling in between actions, managing your Familiars well, counter-attacking and defending appropriately by watching out for when your enemy is about to launch a killer attack.

Combat is entertaining thanks to the well-thought out battle system and the highlight of the fights comes from boss battles where you need to bring together everything you have learned and take advantage of the strengths of your Familiars. Nonetheless, the frequency of the battles outside of the main quests can get a little irritating. On many occasions I’ve simply wanted to complete a side-quest yet strolling across the countryside is a dangerous business and it can be impossible to avoid being constantly attacked. When these weaker enemy battles are so simple to win, I don’t really see the point of having to fight them time and time again.

While it’s true that the quality production, storyline, art and audio turn out to be the main stars of Ni No Kuni, serving to make it such a memorable experience, I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed the battle system too which is simple to use yet challenging to master during the intense fights. It’s also fun managing yourself and your Familiars and spending time in the shops ensuring that everyone is equipped well for the battles ahead and carrying out quests to get the cash and rewards to make life a little easier.

Overall, Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is a stunning combination of engaging narrative, beautiful animation and engaging JRPG gameplay and, for the most part, I’ve spent a large part of this game with a massive grin on my face.
