    Not the Step Up I Wanted But Still Great

    This game brings in so many new features to the previous game while also strangely removing the cool pokemon monster system from the last game. These new gameplay features or styles include an RTS game called skirmishes that are similar to Pikmin with controlling multiple armies with multiple units in them and It's also similar to Fire Emblem with a form of the weapon triangle. Also included is a My Kingdom mode that is closely tied to the whole theme of the game with building a brand new kingdom from the ground up in a sort of game similar to something like the recent Final Fantasy XV mobile game. These all form the identity that is Ni No Kuni 2 and whilst they all fit into the game quite nicely it's hard to not miss the monster system from the previous entry to fully feel like this game is a real full blown improvement. We do get multiple weapons and armors for each character, but the challenge wasn't there to make me care, at least when going down the main story anyway. For the more experienced, who really want a challenge look at the new Tainted Monsters. If you have played things like the Xenoblade games these are the unique monsters that are super tough and are much stronger and smarter than your average monster. Story-wise I feel the pacing could have been more fleshed out with some longer dungeons as it feels the whole time the game is giving you much more story than gameplay. One thing that bothered me the most is that there is this new feature where the characters talk while the game is going on kind of similar to the skit idea in the Tales Of series. The problem with these is that unlike Tales Of they are not voiced and appear just as quickly as they disappear which is a very strange design decision as I always felt like I was missing out because I wasn't living up to their unrealistic required speed to reading them, let alone while I'm playing. Of course, there are TONS of side quests that for the most part, all fit into the whole My Kingdom mode and RTS skirmishes that exceed the game's value. Take this game at your own pace and you are definitely sure to enjoy the charming world of Ni No Kuni 2.

    Charming Game

    This is a very fun, light game that is good for relaxation. It's a nice game to play in between high energy games or after a stressful day. It's not very addicting, but it's definitely fun to play once in a while. The story is interesting, and it remains very simple throughout the game (which I found refreshing) Because there is so much to do in the game, you can spend a bunch of time playing and not advance the story at all. The story, music, world design, and characters are all reminiscent of a Studio Ghibli movie (such as, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke). The music especially is fantastic. The game is very easy, especially if you become over leveled, however most of the side content is decently challenging. The combat is actually really fun, and works well. There are a lot of side activities, in addition to the main quest. The most interesting part of the game for me is the kingdom building. The side quests tie into the kingdom building because all of they can lead to you gaining new citizens. Everything in the kingdom is upgradeable and gives you some advantage in game. I really enjoyed the game, and I recommend it if you want to play something that will brighten your day.

    Ni no Kuni is Still Amazing

    First and foremost, the game is superb. If you're a fan of the first then it's a no brainer. What was originally said about the first game is still true for this one, it feels as if you're playing a Ghibli movie and it's just as excellent. I've sunk many hours into the game and it keeps bringing me back into it. From the ability to grow your kingdom, the engaging battle mechanics to the intriguing story, there's nothing that this game falls short on. And don't fret if you didn't play the first one. The game is entirely insular, similar to how Final Fantasy games. Speaking of which, much like Final Fantasy I truly hope that Ni no Kuni become's Level-5's Final Fantasy and that there will be a 3rd game in the future with many more to follow. I highly recommend this to any fan of Ghibli films, JRPG enthusiasts or those that want to try a game that's a bit different from traditional RPGs.

    Good Game, Missing Heart of the First

    The game is very well done and the new systems are fun, but I find this story to be missing the heart and feeling of the first game. There is just something that is missing. Without the creature capturing and evolving being an integral part of the new game it also ends up having a decided lack of monster variety in comparison to the first one. The biggest let down in this is the bonuses that came with the premium version of the game, which pale vastly compared to the premium version of the first game. The first game gave you a fantastically done physical copy of the Wizards Companion that was in full color and matched exactly what was in the game. It was absolutely phenomenal. Where as this one dumped the top quality bonuses and went with super generic JRPG premium junk, for a super premium price.

    Really wanted to love and cherish this game but just something big was lacking and it's hard to pinpoint what. There is so little voiceover that it becomes hard to really get a feel for the characters and get to know their personalities like in the first game. The story itself isn't terrible but its very childish and simple, the main character is your typical super super good guy/can do no wrong/sees no bad, it's a little cheesy. Aside from that, the combat is fun hack and slash and there are tons of weapons and armor to look forward to getting. Not to mention it is truly one of the best looking games on the system

    Lots to Do in This Game

    The game as whole, is okay. The game starts out wonderfully great, then suddenly feels as if it was rushed out the door. Understandable compared to the announcement and the release date. The is a lot to do in this game, and it is very similar in feel to Suikoden. The story needs more work put in to it, as it is also part of what feels rushed. You will find yourself spending most of your time building your kingdom - running out doing a ton of fetch quests. Not much else besides that. A buy for fans of the franchise, and RPG lovers alike.

    The Enamor of Ghibli has Worn Off

    Suffering from sequelitis, Ni No Kuni II is more. . .well NNK than Pokemon this time around and the once charming Ghibli feel has started to wear off a bit. I'm still working through the game myself, but I'm not feeling the same draw of the previous game. The game seems to have whimpered out as well, drawing very little attention in the media which is stark contrast to the first outing. Overall, if you're a fan of the first, you will enjoy this one but set expectations a little lower before diving in.

    Good, but some flaws

    Ni No Kuni II is a worthy upgrade from the original, but not all the changes are for the better. The graphics completely fall apart once the player reaches the world map. The battle system also received a downgrade from the original. The fighting is closer to the Tales series, but clunky and underwhelming. The kingdom creator is amazing, and what ultimately drives you to push forward. While not on the level of many city-simulation games, it’s still fun and rewarding system.
