I was in the market for a good RPG. The last good RPG I have played and enjoyed was Final Fantasy X. I knew nothing of this game. I didn't do any research of this game. I took a chance and this was truly a great experience. Story line was solid, characters was built up enough for you to connect.
Gameplay has a nostalgic feel into it. Ni No Kuni has certainly passed my expectations. The game offers lots of side missions. Replay value is good.

The game seemed very promising, but the strange battle system was where the game lacked the most. I kept feeling like I needed 3 hands to play the game properly. There is a lot of potential in Ni No Kuni, but with how drawn out the story line is, I would not recommend this game for casual RPG players.

its been along time since i played an rpg that was worth playing Ni no kuni is one of those games that comes along once in a blue moon that would blow you away on its artwork. Its is an amazing game on beautiful art work from studio ghibli and a story that will keep you going to make you playing to see what will happen.
the game play is pretty simple to play the interesting part is almost like pokemon getting new friends to help you fight. The game play is also smiler to games like dot hack or persona which anyone could get into. The game is filled with some surprise here and there and the game was pretty fast pace in the beginning which i like its sends you into the fight as fast as possible unlike other rpg game where they take time to let you loose.
the bad i wish that you have more people on screen with you fighting instead of three but the game was originally release for the ds so i guess that they didn't really want to make any improvement for the ps3. The other thing i really hate is when you change your familiars to the next level you have to start from level one again.
All in all according to the game it too me about maybe 61 or 62 hours to beat. I did enjoy playing the game but its going to be a one time play through for me i wonder if i play it again i would improve the hour of game play or not. If your a fan of rpg then Ni no kuni must play game I would really like to get the special edition copy with the book and other goodies that come along with the game as a collectors instead. I wonder to myself would studio ghibli ome up with another games like Akira Toriyama dragon quest or will they call it quits. Overall Ni no kuni is going to be one of those special rare game for collectors that i will have to get my hands on.
