    Its gorgeously lush visuals are quite simply among the best ever seen in a game, offering an object lesson in how stylisation has the power to trump photorealism even in the 4K age. Some players will lack the time or patience to put in the effort that any heavyweight role-playing game demands – this is a 50-hour adventure at least – but it puts forward an irresistible case for your attention. As video games are once again weathering ignorance-fuelled attacks that paint them as universally gun-centric, violent and nihilistic, Ni no Kuni is a timely counterpoint.

    One of the best JRPGs released in ages, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom is as charming as it is intricate, full of expressive characters and addictive gameplay systems that mesh together in perfect harmony.

    It has mostly superficial similarities to the first game, but it's one of the most genuinely enjoyable and fun JRPGs to come out in a long time. A charming story, delightful cast of characters, exciting gameplay and amazing presentation combine to make a game that is a boatload of fun to play. Its only real flaw is sometimes getting too bogged down in its own systems, and the story could be meatier. JRPG fans of all ages should find a lot to love here, and it's a must-have for anyone who loves the genre.

    Ni No Kuni II is full of some tremendously creative decisions that make this unlike many other Japanese RPGs, as well as a clear step above an already good game in the original Ni No Kuni. However, some additions like the RTS elements left me scratching my head. Despite this, Ni No Kuni II tells a beautiful story that’s set in an even more beautiful world, and should be enjoyed by most JRPG fans.

    While topics and storytelling might be a tad too childish and the challenge level of this fairy tale is a little too low, it nonetheless is hard to escape the magic of this beautiful JRPG, with its varied mission and level design.

    Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom improves upon its predecessor in almost every regard, yet somehow its magic is lost along the way.

    The in-game reference to Facebook emphasizes how over-cluttered and unfocused Ni no Kuni II is, as this is a solid action-RPG buried under a steady stream of fetch quests and cookie-clicker-like town-building.

    Masterpiece, its just an amazing game for everyone. They tend to be on the pricey side but if you get a promotion, its a must buy.

    Lengthy
    Masterpiece, its just an amazing game for everyone. They tend to be on the pricey side but if you get a promotion, its a must buy.

    Lengthy deep story, very fantasy and probably a bit too childish but it succeeds at telling a true, meaninful story with characters you care about with a fun gameolay system I wish other JRPGs would adopt.

    For all Zelda fans who dont have a Nintendo, this is pribanly the closest thing you might get to a simillar game

    Muy infantil, se nota que está hecho con prisas. La mano de estudios Ghibli casi no se nota y la historia pasa inadvertida
