I defend this game non stop, but I have to agree this you guys, who the hell care what it's called? I stopped playing a few weeks ago to wait for 1.07 to finish off the last few paragon levels, and them I'm out until more content comes. Honestly, not much else left to do at this point for me. I got my $ worth no doubt, but I have a stack 1.5 feet tall of console titles I have been neglecting and Ni no Kuni is calling my name :-) Oh, and also unloaded my Activision stock I've had for years at 13.5 because of the earning reports.
When you finish Ni no Kuni I want to hear what you think of it. Japanese RPGs and I have a complicated relationship filled with a few disappointments and very few enjoyable experiences. I did like Eternal Sonata for PSP, Dragon Quest 8 for PS2, and Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light for PSP...if that helps in terms of a measuring stick. All of those games I found to have fun gameplay mixed with some entertaining storytelling. On the opposite side I found White Knight Chronicles to be terrible. Poor camera, poor storytelling, terrible pacing, and crappy cinematics.
That is about the extent of my experience with JRPGs however, so it isn't just complicated..it is also short. That probably contributes to my resistance to jump into Ni no Kuni.
