White Knight Chronicles II
Looks pretty sick!
I love lots of video games. But recently I haven't really played a game that just sucks me in. The last game I got hooked on was RE The Mercenaries 3DS. I just loved it! But since then I've played like a 100 games. And while none of them were really bad, none of them truly sucked me in the way RE, Legend of Zelda, and God of War did. But this game looks incredibly fun just from a few screen shots! I am definitely pre-ordering this! This might be the best PS3 game I've seen or played since Killzone 3, which was epic. I want that avatar costume and I want this as soon as it comes out. WHO'S WITH ME? GO WHITE KNIGHT!!!!
Im sooo happy!
i love the first game! and i have been waiting a long time for this one. it will be even better because your own character gets to have a knight as well! this will be awsome.
this gme looks sick i have white knight chronicles the first one already nd it was good i liked it nd all i need now is part two to get the collection of white knight chronicles
Give it a chance
Sure the first one had problems, but what games don't? So far from what i've seen this game has made some drastic improvements, from the nice looking smooth graphics to the combat system. Not to mention the customization features are top-notch. You even get your own Knight that you can make your own, your personality will really shine through this game, especially the online features which also have made many improvements. I'm not saying this game will be perfect, the first one had some annoying little bugs and the voice acting wasn't that great. However i believe Level-5 took what alot of people suggested into consideration and made many drastic improvements that should and need to be noticed. So i've decided to let the small things go and give the second installment the chance that it deserves.
WKC1 Great if you actually play it!
Since the reviews here are all over the board, I decided to come at this from a different perspective, as in reality, both camps are correct.
By that I mean, if all you did was play 1-30 hours, you would most likely walk away with the game being mediocre at best, and cliche/ poor at worst.
However, that said, if you actually like RPG's and get into the game's strength, which is the 100's of hours and I literally mean hundreds, of community online play, with some putting in over 2000 to date, you would find this game is one of the best of it's kind out today, and perhaps the best.
Along with this is the georama, which actually does have a use, contrary to what others may have said, but it is not until much later in your online quest play that you realize it. In order to get the best armor (GR14 and GR15, which is where your real strength lies) you will need to develop your georama to it's highest level, as then the coins you need to bind said armor become available at your shops.
So for those of you contemplating the wide range of reviews out there, consider what I have written, as that will help to put it in perspective for you.
If you are not into grinding hours on end for rare materials, making ever stronger and more powerful weapons and armor, and using your self selected and developed skills to create the best combos for your chosen class and build, then by all means skip this one and it's upcoming part 2.
If however, questing with friends, and doing all of the above, along with helping others achieve their best is something you enjoy, then this indeed with provide literally thousands of hours of entertainment. How's that for getting your monies worth!
Hope you have found this to be worthwhile.
Good Game and Improve system. Many people like to bash WKC 1 and how bad the story mode was but those people don't really know that this game is mostly focus on Online playing. I play WKC 1 and let me say it was awesome the online play. Many complain that your Avatar doesn't get involve and what not but I prefer him to stay out of the story and have a horrible voice actor. WKC 2 improve the slow combat that was a pain to many in WKC 1 and the new better drop rate which made many of us want to pull of hair from the amount of time it took us just to get one item we need. I say give this game a chance and if you haven't play WKC 1 then buy it sin it comes with both games and it will be the improve version on WKC1
I'm sure I will be back to give it a 10/10.
I bought the first White Knight Chronicles around a month ago and I absolutely love it. In my opinion, it's the best RPG that has come out in several years. I always buy preowned copies of games and never get new, but I am going to make an acception for this game. White Knight Chronicles II has all the content from the first game as well as the new content and improved features. Being able to use the Incorruptus (Knights) on your main character in multiplayer mode is going to be awesome. The battle mechanics in the first one were good, and now they improved on them even more. With over 100 hours of gameplay and an online mode with more content, this game will keep any gamer occupied for a long time. There is no doubt in my mind that this will be a great game and even though I always buy used, I am going to be first in line to get this one when it comes out. ^.-
Plain and Simple
If your a hardcore JRPG and find the critics wrong many times over, this game is for you! Its similar to Final Fantasy 13 battle system, but instead of just standing around, you can move yourself while waiting for the fast load bar which makes WKC 2 more engaging. Also if your the type that loves MMORPG, you'll definitely love this. So what if there is a time bar that you can SEE? it's not like other games don't have it. They just don't show it in this fashion. Also if you enjoy games such as MH Tri, Star Ocean International, than you should seriously consider WKC 2. There are many many MANY quests, errands, and bounties. This game will seriously be worth your money given the fact that the game play/story will take the combined time of a few other games to be played thoroughly.
THE BEST MMO RPG OF THE DECADE
I played the prequel and i haven't loved a game so much. I haven't eben touched my newer games. I love teaming up with my friends online to beat difficult quests and bosses, and gather all the loot necessary for upgrading weapons and armor. I LOVE IT!!!
SE, take notes
I'll start off by saying this is the first game ive ever written a review on before I finished. I loved the first game and so far this one has been no different. Lv5 outdid themselves on this game. I've never seen any game sequal include the original with it (not to mention it's all 1 disc) and they redid the first game. They improved the graphics and enhanced the originally slow and button mashing type battle system and changed it to a faster system that if you dont pay attention with using the right attacks or attributes you'll wind up dead. There are many other minor changes that make the game too but to many to sit here and list. The first game feels like a totally new game thanks to this and i've played WKC1 many many times. They only failed in one part. The music of the first game really psyched you up and had a great beat. The 2nd game's songs arent as good and they changed some of the 1st game's music and some are better while others arent as good. All in all I recommend this game to anyone who hasnt even played the first one since it comes with it. It was well worth more than the $60 i payed for it. As my title suggests SE should take note on this game and what was done for us FF fans.
