I played the first WKC... and was disappointed.
WKC II has a wealth of improvements, plus getting WKC 1, with those improvements is really nice.
But, this game sucks. It's so pointless. Just like the first one, the combat is pretty lame and the Death Blow of it all is that this an RPG, which by reputation tells a long, detailed story, and the worst thing you can have happen in a game like this is for people NOT CARE about anything that happening or the characters involved...
I love LEVEL-5, ever since Dark Cloud and DragonQuest, but this series needs to die.
There's no JRPG's on the PS3, which is a huge let down, but you're just gonna have to wait until Ni No Kuni arrives. (also LEVEL-5, called White Witch something or other in the US)

Have you ever wanted to play a RPG on your console that felt like a MMO but you only got to play with bots and a bad control scheme? Well Look no further my misguided friend!
Welcome to White Knight Chronicles 2.
Which when translated to Japanese means "FFXIII-2 still isn't out yet". I should have known I was in trouble when each time I loaded up the game, it asked me what language I speak. Every time. I looked for the regret option, but alas couldn't find. Ok this isn't close to game breaking, but it's a slice of unfinished laziness that appears to be a pattern in the game.
If you haven't played the first WKC1, you'll start off with a lv35 character included with abilities.. skills.. the whole kebob. The problem is that at no point in this game does the game actually explain how to use.. anything. There is no tutorial. It's as if you turned on your roommates ps3 while he was at work and started playing his 25 hour file for a game you've never played.
Like spending $10 for online pass? WKC2 will scratch your itch. The only playable route to this game has been barricaded by EA's universal "we hate you" pass.. I wouldn't have a problem with this if I found the overall gameplay to be.. playable. I didn't.
The controls are absurd. It's sort of like they watched a video of FFXII and said "Hey! Let's do that but make it suck!!" Want to use your left stick and x to select a target to attack? Psshh! For some reason even playing solo, left stick tilted down will bring up a PSN type message box in MID BATTLE! It's bad. At no point during mid battle do you have access to the control layout.. or are introduced on.. anything relevant to helping you. Oh and in solo mode you're also able to waste your R2 button on emotes!! Just in case you wanna show the bots how you're feeling! I used sad alot.
