21 Hours 32 Minutes, thats what it took me to beat White Knight Chronicles, and honestly the game just rubs me the wrong way and where do I begin.
Lets start with the battle system sure it has alot of merit but when it becomes easy enough to clock enemies with the basic attacks and not use Action Chips it bores me to death if this system had any more flaws I would be wondering if this system should of gotten an overhaul.... WAIT, about the Custom Combo system not only do you have to put down what you want to use in the combo you need to spend action chips and also press the button when the attack gauge lights up and if you mess up, the combo dont work, thats one thing that annoys me, when the only thing you need to do is highlight a move then just keep pressing X to do that move it really gets annoying.
And heres another thing, as many people know the combat has some flaws when one of your characters can attack someone through a wall and still hit the enemy, and what about when one of your guys go down can you switch someone out to replace them, NO! even though the ability is there you can only do that outside combat, would someone explain that to me, you cant even swap people out when there up why have the choice to swap someone out when you cant do so in combat!!!
And the most annoying thing of all, The length now I know people are gonna say this is gonna be a load of crap, but honestly I consider a good length of time to be about 40 hours or more but when this game is on the PS3 having a game that last less than 25 is a damn joke! And for note, I didnt avoid combat that length is when I was clearing out just about everything in my way, and still beat it in that short amount of time, is this a RPG?
The story is normal at best they could of done alot better.
The online is this games only saving grace, it's very enjoyable with friends I thought with all the good upgrades being buyable on PSN I thought this was a bit stupid but I was relieved when I heard that most of the stuff is atainable in game as you rank up so at least they did something right.
Let me end by saying that this game is one of those that just makes me spew the hate for it and honestly I rented this on gamefly, cause if I bought this game, you would be hearing more complaining on this mess. And if White Knight Chronicles 2 comes out in the US they better fix alot of the annoyances or im not even going to get that game.
Sorry Zaku, but honestly this game dont live up to the hype, only my boiling hate...
Thank you and sorry if I annoyed a few people here these are my own opinions..
