In our original Ni No Kuni review, our Editor-in-Chief, Matt Sainsbury, awarded the title a perfect score in his glowing review. The intention of this second opinion review isn’t to criticise the game or the differences in our opinions of it, but to share the experience from another perspective. Just like in life itself, it’s the little things within Ni No Kuni that matter the most and it’s an experience that will never leave me for the rest of my days.
Throughout the history of gaming, each year we have a few standout titles that achieve greatness. Every so often though, there are those certain few titles that rise above greatness – into the realms of masterpieces; timeless classics that are cherished and loved by the majorities. While it’s subjective and depends on the genre that these titles fall into, for RPG’s, these are the likes of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts. These games excel in nearly every manner and are blended with memorable characters and grandiose storylines, even though they’re different in certain aspects. These are the games that I cherish – games that continue to live on in my memory. [Review Score: 5/5]
