It was rated well a long time ago when it was released in Japan.

I am really dissapointed in the reviews it was given by crappy American sites and magazines. This is a true JRPG and I love it.

You can choose the skill set you want, the weapons you want to use, the spells you want. You can set up combos which if executed perfectly deal massive damage (combos are made up of up to 6 normal abilities whether they be sword attacks, axe attacks or magic etc.).

The story follows a young boy from a wine company who is tasked with collecting some wine to bring to the palace for the princess' coming of age celebration. During this celebration the castle is attacked and Leonard (the boy from the wine company) tries to get the princess out of danger.
Whilst running away from a great beast Leonard stumbles upon a set of armour and when cornered by the beast chasing them he decides to try it out.
It transforms him into a 7 metre tall 'White Knight' (an ability you can do in any fight later on).
He uses this White Knight to defeat the creature but the attackers still manage to make off with the princess as their captive.
Leonard tasks himself with the return of the princess.

I won't tell anymore of the story because it is pretty much exactly the same as any other JRPG.
The reason this game doesn't look amazing graphically speaking is not just because it has HEAPS going on, but also, it was in production before the ps3 came out and was released in japan in 2008.

They are making a sequel and because of the reviews the first one got Level 5 are unlikely to release an English edition.

Fucking Americans

Sorry, one other thing (remembered this after posting in the modnation thread)

I have to really point out how good it is to play a game that never loads. The loading must be done through cutscenes or something, because the framerate never faulters - even with heaps of enemies running around you and spells going off everywhere. Once a cutscene is done you are straight back into playing. When you open a door you just walk right on in to the building.

The Japanese know how to make games properly, without faults.

This is why you should never listen to review sites, and especially magazines.

I didn't, I bought it.

This is a particularly bad case though, it is only rated like a 5 on metacritic.

Metacritic is only English spoken sites though.

im saying that to everyone. Just because a game gets 5 doesn't mean it's bad. Reviews are mostly wrong.

Usually I can tell if a game is good, just by looking at it. It's not hard. If im really uncertain about a game, ill watch a GameTrailers review.

Jeez I am happy I got this game. It is so damn good.

Sparto, lemme know what you think. Also we should have a bash online at some point, it's meant to be awesome.

Dont apologize to me, I didn't make it.

Just seems odd that you made that judgement after playing for 10 minutes...

So it seems that all across the web the general feeling is that WKC is a bad game and only a few like it, but those who do, love it.

I think I understand why people don't like it (from reading a bit on the net)
It plays like a MMORPG, even in the sp. So everyone says it has a slow battle system. All it is, is a timer between moves. I think people forget that they have to wait between moves in every ff game (among many other RPGs)


If anyone else decides to get this, let me know so we can hit it up online.

Finished my first playthrough last night, starting my NG+ soon.
There is HEAPS to do outside of the story so I will be busy for a while.

I really, really like this game.

Yeah but due o the crappy reviews and the fact that the first one took 2 years to make it over here, I'm not holding my breath
