One of My Favorite Games I've Ever Played

Think Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli movies (i.e. Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away) meet Zelda meet pokemon. Ni No Kuni takes from all of these sources and blends them into a magical adventure that you won't forget. Everything from the settings to the music (by my favorite composer, Joe Hisaishi) to the magic to the familiars (this game's version of pokemon) to the puzzles. This game has so much in it that you'll be 30 hours in and feel like you haven't even scratched the surface. The only other series that moves me to the degree that Ni No Kuni did is Zelda. It's everything I wanted it to be and more.

If the idea of Zelda and pokemon mixed intrigues you at all, you will LOVE this game!

Pros: This game has a good story
The anime cutscenes and graphics in general are awesome

Cons: Way to many cut scenes that didn't have anything to do with the gameplay or story
The dialog was painfully childish
The combat is all about using your pokemon (familiars) pokemon trainers (humans) do very little in combat
The texted dialog dosn't display well on sdtv's
The sidequests are repetative fetch quests
The accents of characters change durring certain cutscenes

Notes: I would of liked this game a whole lot better on a handheld it was a good JRPG. If the gameplay wasn't a ripoff of pokemon or would have been on a handheld it would deserve a rating higher then a 7.

I love it so much! Every time I start a new game with extra quests and treasures to find, I say, "Im going to do everything!" Then, before long, I tire, finish the game and feel I wasted all the time starting with all the extra stuff.
Not with this game. You actually NEED to do all the ancillary to be strong enough to play through. On top of that, you maintain you interest to do so! They're spread out and all different enough to keep you entrained.
The story is sweet and exciting, battle is fantastic, fun and just challenging enough so your never frustrated or bored.

I has the childlike fanaticism with an adult challenge that I have not seen done properly outside of the modern Zelda series.

If you like long RPG's that you get lost in for weeks and do not need real militant weaponry and battle tactics, this game is for you!
