some of the bounties are aggravating like "knight moves" but besides that i don't know what you people are talking about on here in my opinion this game is super fun n i wish there was like a 2 player story make my job easier.

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.

OK I m a big RPG fan , i loved WKC1 , but WKC2 is sooooooo frustrating, where to begin, first off the online mode is blocked in WKC2 unless you are willing to pay 10 dollars, what a load of horse dung. In wkc1 the online was free now you pull this move?!?!?!? essentially blocking 50% of the game to people who are renting it and dont pay your stupid 10 dolllar fee, no 3 day pass , no 1 day trial , u pay 10 or u dont play. Not only that ALL OF THE GAME IS RECYCLED THIS IS NOT REALLY A NEW GAME, THE DEVELOPER recycled all the backgrounds and graphics, i wouldnt mind some recycling but dang this takes it to far there IS NOTHING NEW every background is from WKC1. STILL THIS GAME IS WAY BETTER THAN ANY FF GAME THAT HAS BEEN RELEASED IN THIS GENERATION. WKC2>FF13 but they both suck . TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS 1 i give WKC1 a 9 and WKC2 a 5 , IF U NEVER PLAYD WKC1 then give it a try but if you played WKC1 this is the exact same game minus the online mode ...
THIS IS NOT A TRUE SEQUEL ITS A RECYCLED GAME OF WKC 1, GREAT GAME BUT A FEW DESIGN DECISIONS RUIN THE WHOLE THING, REALLY NO ONLINE THIS IS A ONLINE GAME U COULDNT JUST GIVE ME A 3 DAY TRAIL WHAT A BUNCH OF JERKS, ESPECIALLY AFTER PSN GOT HACKED AND ALL OUR CREDIT INFO LEAKED YOU THINK THEY WOULD AT LEAST GIVE U A WEEK TRAIL, I DONT WANT TO PUT MY CREDIT CARD NUMBERS BACK ON PSN AND PROBIBLY NEVER WILL
