The lights are on
This game was incredible. Gorgeous graphics, epic music, enjoyable gameplay.....it's damn near perfect. It's easily the best JRPG of this generation.
I honestly wonder if Kim actually played the entire game, or a different game all together. I experienced none of the frustration she talks about at all. You can in fact save the game at anytime (just press the triangle button and then the start button). The 10% deduction from your money when restarting is only a slight irritation as it can be regained with only a battle or two.
Does Kim really like RPGs? I honestly am not sure.
dude youre dead on this game is awe inspiring.
Kim's review was the worst I have read in a long time. I'm glad Riener made sure to tweet about how much he enjoyed this and also Sleeping Dogs.
completely agree.. The GI review for Ni No Kuni is garbage... Either she didn't play it or just sucks that bad at video games in general.
Having just beaten this game myself, I have to say I completely agree with you guys. The game was straight up fantastic and nothing like what Kimberly described. I never allowed myself to get penalized because I saved constantly. As far as the battle system, the only time I even worried about defending against nasty attacks was during boss battles. In random battles I was almost always the one kicking ass, and if not, I healed. It's one of the best RPGs I've played in years and I can't believe Kimberly scored it so low and had so many issues with it. And yes, in this case I consider a 7 low. I know a lot of people like to say that a 7 is still a good score, but that's BS in this case. All the things Kimberly said she was expecting from the game and didn't get were all the things I got.
