White Knight Chronicles does something that recent traditional RPGs have not: it has played it safe and close to genre conventions. While taking a worthwhile risk in the combat system
, Level 5 doesn't stray from the old magic of what makes RPGs some of the greatest games published.
Don't listen to the critic's reviews! I picked this game up recently after doing some research and its alot better then critics seem to think. The graphics aren't mind blowing but after all the brown and bloom games, the bright colours are refreshing. The combat is very fun and the character customisation is great. The story is half decent as well. My only complaint is that the lip sync is terrible, but its easy to look over.
TLDR: Go buy this game!
White Knight Chronicles feels too old. That’s not without reason: the game appeared in Japan a year and a half before the European release. The end result isn’t worthy of the Level 5-name, even though the hardcore RPG-fanatic will gain some satisfaction from the gameplay.
I hate to say it, but White Knight Chronicles is a huge letdown. Aside from some of the environments, everything in the game is merely average or, in some cases, below that. The broken, boring combat stands as the game's biggest problem, but I can't help but feel that even if it was more exciting, the game would still be sub par.
I really like this game. It looks to me like MMO experience, but without MMO subscription price. I get party of 4 to manage, so I can play around with different types of builds. I have armor and weapons to buy. I can play with my friends online. The graphics is good and world is interesting. It is not gray like many FPS today, but a full color palette. I like the basic game play, which I consider to be semi-turn based. The story started well. There is really not much to complain about. It might be a bit on easy side, but considering that I may want to experiment with my builds I need some room for mistakes.
+ The story starts off good but quickly looses it's momentum but remains ok.
+ The graphics are alright.
- The story starts to pick up later when the game ends unfinished.
- The game play is poorly thought out and very easy.
- Switching to the knight isn't fun.
- The online aspect of the game only subtract from the main single player game.
- Having to create and empty shell of a character at the start ****.
- The music just about does it's job, but it's forgettable.
This game had a lot of potential. It had decent and pretty graphics, a nice skills system and really interesting combat. But I couldn't get over just how horrible the storyline is. It's like the writing department wanted to see how many cliques they could cram into it! And the main characters are just so, so stupid!!! The princess manages to get herself kidnap over and over, and the main character has to go from place to place following her **** the whole thing is just cringe worthy.
