Ni No Kuni 2 had me glued to my PC. The adventures of Evan and his friends makes getting the laptop out worthwhile. The game looks beautiful at all times and it also runs at a consistently steady frame rate. It’s a game that despite three separate gameplay elements still feels like one cohesive whole and it’s finally filled a void in me that had been waiting for a truly great JRPG. I absolutely adore this game and am confident that you will too.
Ni No Kuni 2 is gorgeous, charming and constantly evolving. Its combat is layered and exciting, and polished by a medley of systems that let you finely tailor your play style. Its globetrotting coming-of-age story is a bit saccharine, but it's told well, and packs an ending that still occupies my thoughts. But its crowning achievement is tying all that and more into an involved and deeply satisfying kingdom building sim, one that enhances every other part of the game.
Themen und Erzählweise mögen eher kindlich, der Spielfluss nicht immer optimal und der leider nicht anpassbare Schwierigkeitsgrad zu harmlos sein. Doch der Magie dieses Abenteuers kann man sich nur schwer entziehen. Die später auch etwas anspruchsvolleren Kämpfe bieten dynamische Facetten, die Aufgaben sind zahlreich und meist liebevoll verzahnt, Leveldesign und Hindernisbewältigung abwechslungsreich, der Soundtrack ungemein stimmungsvoll. Die taktischen Schlachtfeldeinsätze, in denen man ein rotierbares Miniheer dirigiert, sind fast schon ein Spiel für sich. Und den Regierungsmodus, wo man Schritt für Schritt sein eigenes Königreich errichtet, will man teils gar nicht mehr verlassen. Mich haben Level-5 und Bandai Namco jedenfalls mehr als 60 Stunden lang sehr gut unterhalten und ich würde jederzeit wieder nach Katzbuckel zurückkehren.
Revenant Kingdom is a more than worthy successor to Wrath of the White Witch, and it is arguably more accessible than ever before. Even for players that are new to not only this series, but to JRPGs as a whole, Revenant Kingdom has something to draw you in and get you hooked. The world, the story, the combat, the base building, something here will grab you and keep you. There is plenty of content to dig into, and you will not find yourself bored for quite a while with all that Level-5 has given you.
Open world action games always struggle with trying to balance grinding and coherent story progression. Despite gating some of the game behind puzzles or some obligatory small-scale skirmishes, Ni no Kuni II is able to keep its story at front, while still giving the player lots of options, rewarding side quests, and other fun things to do. Ni no Kuni II's story does a good job of driving the action forward but its main cast lacks depth and dramatic weight, instead serving archetypal roles that don't much evolve. On the whole, Ni no Kuni II is a beautiful and well-made game that manages to make its combination of action-RPG and city-building seem natural. Despite some initial intimations of darkness, its tone is light-hearted and upbeat and its core combat is very satisfying throughout.
Ni No Kuni 2 is a robust game that offers ample ways to spend your time, and even if they aren't all up to the same level of quality, it's easy to appreciate how they collectively contribute to the bigger picture. It's chock full of excellent battles and surprising moments that make for a far more memorable experience than you initially expect and leaves you impressed by your own accomplishments. If you didn't play the first game, don't let this one pass you by too.
