The only few complaints I ever see about this game is the battle system. I don't understand the fuss though, to me it's flawless and not too difficult to keep track of everyone on the screen. Your allies will typically heal themselves so you can focus on the enemy.
Regardless if your an RPG fan or not you really can't go wrong with Ni No Kuni, it's a journey with so much charm and heart. Also, I'm sure any orphan kids or kids who've lost their mom in the past could really relate to this game and find some comfort. If you don't have a PS3, get one and treat yourself to this rare treasure. You won't regret it!
Animation - It features absolutely breathtaking animation that appeals to all ages.
Music and Soundtrack - It has a wonderful full sound to it. It features full orchestra pieces of music. This makes it feel like you are inside a movie.
Gameplay - I have just begun to play the game but thus far the gameplay is fairly straightforward and very creative. The in-game guide( in the persona of Drippy the hero's sidekick) gives you a full and complete explanation of all game mechanics.
I absolutely love all games that Level 5 has done. You will will really appreciate this title if you enjoyed Dragon Quest VIII. This title features the same rich animation, sound, and gameplay as its predecessor. I also enjoyed such Level 5 titles as Dark Cloud 1 and 2 and Rogue Galaxy. Level 5 isn't necessarily a prolific game maker but each title it puts out is a quality well done masterpiece. You are sure to truly enjoy this title!
While I'm not a big fan of RPGs (Western or Japanese), when I do find one I like, I will play it to the end.
& this game is one of them. Ni No Kuni ("2nd Country" in Japanese) is a wonderful RPG. Great graphics with amazing animation provided by Studio Ghibli (of "Spirited Away" fame). The English voice acting is surprisingly well done, thought I wish there were more of them. (BTW you can set the voices to Japanese if you wish so).
While it does takes a while for the game to start (with the 30+ minute long animated opening) Once the game does start, it becoming very exciting to play. I really love the game's battle system thought it takes a while to get used to it. It's a combination of both real time & turn based. I also love the idea of familars-being able to tame/capture creatures & train them. This part of the game reminds me a bit of Pokemon-I'm one of the small number of people who never played a Pokemon game. (Hopefully Nintendo is taking notes from this game for the next time they make a home console Pokemon game).
As a late comer to the PS3, I needed a game that I won't beat in one setting & I found it in this game. I'm very impressed with Ni No Kuni overall- from the stunning scenery, to the big world to explore, to even the game's soundtrack. I haven't played a JRPG like this since Dragon Quest VIII. Not surprisingly, both games were developed by the same company- Level 5. If you'll also a late-comer to the PS3, be sure to check this out; you won't be disappointed.
Ni No Kuni is one of my favorite RPG.
At first glance it looks like a Turn-base game. Well to some extent it is, but it has an action style to it. You can move, dodge, and interact in this Action-Turn Based-RPG.
On top of the interactive fluid game play this game allows you to catch and capture "familiars" (The games Pokemons)
Each "familiar" is different. They all have their own unique style, spells, and personality. Level them up, interchange them into combat, and enjoy discovering which 3 work perfectly with each other.
Now my fact are a bit iffy here, I believe the game's developer Level 5 also worked on a cartoon? (Something like this) So the story is well written with great voice overs.
There's a reason why this game gets the red banner "Greatest Hits"
