Writes in with their ver­dict on Ni No Kuni II: Revenant King­dom

Games Master - - Fanbase -

The first Ni No Kuni is one of my favourite games, and I felt that its story was a com­plete one, so I went into the se­quel with trep­i­da­tion, and un­for­tu­nately, it wasn’t un­war­ranted.

King Evan’s jour­ney to build a new king­dom af­ter his old one is taken over isn’t bad, but it’s nowhere near as com­pelling as Oliver’s in the first game thanks to some un­der­whelm­ing char­ac­ters. A key ex­am­ple of this is Roland, who is mysteriously tele­ported to the other world for un­known rea­sons, but very quickly adapts and af­ter a while it’s easy to forget where he ac­tu­ally came from.

De­spite in­tro­duc­ing play­ers to the com­bat early, the game takes its time to un­ravel the rest of the game­play, such as large-scale bat­tles and king­dom man­age­ment, which is im­pres­sively deep. But com­bat gets very repet­i­tive and is too easy.

This is a de­cent game, en­ter­tain­ing and pre­sented very well, but pales in com­par­i­son to the mas­ter­piece orig­i­nal.
