    An absolute joy, like a whippy ice-cream on a hot summer’s day, it’s sweet and fun and you will want more.

    Without Evermore, Ni No Kuni 2 would have been good. Because of it, it's one of the best JRPGs on PC.

    Leave behind the headaches of everyday life and go out to save the kingdom of Ding Dong Dell. Whether you are a fan of Ghibli or not, Ni No Kuni II will grab you and won’t let go.

    Ni No Kuni II does not innovate, showing no remarkable mood to deviate from its safe zone, but this is also its charm. Allied by very beautiful visuals and an incredible soundtrack, Revenant Kingdom is highly recommended to traditional JRPG enthusiasts who know exactly what to expect from a game of its kind.

    Ni No Kuni II is truly a tale, deliberately naïve and full of colorful characters. The combination of different genres, JRPG, management and RTS, works well, as each style is interwoven with the others.

    Ni No Kuni II tells a nice fairy tale with an iconic Ghibli art style. But the combat system is not good enough, and the design of side quests need some second thoughts.

    Revenant Kingdom is one of those games that suffers for being a sequel to something that was a bit special. It's a good oddball JRPG. But Wrath of the White Witch had great storytelling, compelling characters, and epic boss fights. Revenant Kingdom just feels... smaller.

Fluid combat, not-annoying-characters, a well-paced charming story, amazing art, and superb gameplay made for a great experience for anyone who likes RPGs. I love the FF franchise, but Ni No Kuni 2 is a far better game than FF15 IMO. Expand

    I played this game and it was awesome for starters the story is solid even if it aimed for kids but the gameplay is nice smooth also easyI played this game and it was awesome for starters the story is solid even if it aimed for kids but the gameplay is nice smooth also easy learn but hard to master.

    The Graphics looks solid not the best but still really good with nice visuals that looks like anime.

    The Characters are memorable and you can actually feel connected to them.

    The Empire building is nice even if it takes some time to research some magic

    The Side Quests are all solid and you can spread tons of hours trying to complete all the side quest and complete the whole story

    A wonderful, fun game that is also disappointing.

    The game has great visuals, sound, and controls.

    The worst thing about it is the combat system, which is moronic. It is the same thing over and over again...run around the battlefield pressing x or y (fast attack or slow attack) OR.... jump into the air and press X or Y. Or press a different button to fire your ranged weapon.

    It's boring and no fun. It also means all those different weapons and armor you find are less fun too.

    It's a shame and feels like a missed opportunity...would have been so much fun to try the different weapons and abilities against the different monsters in a turn based game.

    Is it worth playing? Yes. Very much so; I give it an 8. It's still fun because of the visuals and sound.
    But it would have been a 10 with good turn based combat. As it is a lot of the variety of weapons and armors and spells is just completely wasted; you barely notice the differences in combat.

    Pros:

    * Lots of variation with Skirmishes, City Building etc.
    * Beatiful art style, especially characters.
    * Combat system is nice, but could be more challenging.

    Cons:

    * Story is too childish.
    * Way too easy without any difficulty options.
    * Overworld is quite ugly looking.
    * Lack of voice overs in most dialogues.
    * Many dugeons feel bland and lack detail.

    The game has many flaws but I still enjoy it and I would still recommended it to RPG fans. Make sure to do some research on the Skirmish and City Building mechanics because they have a big focus in the game and if you don't like that kind of thing, this game is not for you.

It gets super repetitive hardly 2 hours in the game. Plus the game has several annoyances like after every won battle your character has to make a "victory pose", that stops you for 2-3s. Like... You fight every damn minute. This is so annoying.
    The chibi characters (for when you move on a map) also take away from any interesting gameplay.

    Game is focused on to be child-friendly. Grown ups might get really tired playing it (that says anime-fan).

    Too easy, you do not need strategy. To kill a boss you just have to press attack and that's it. It is for a child under 4 years old.
