Forums - Sony Discussion - White Knight Chronicles - RPGFan Import review....ouch

VC is an RPG from Japan, therefore it is a JRPG.

VC is a strategy RPG, therefore it is also an SRPG.

Basically the delineations are JRPG vs. WRPG which is based on where the game is from and its general style. And then separate delineations for Action RPG, Turnbased RPG, and Strategy RPG which are based on the combat styles

lol @ Rei

Who on God's creation said WKC was "The PS3's FFVII"? Unless you have a link, I'm calling BS on you're part.

I am with Zexen on this, I trust RPGfan alot so this is fairly damning. Being a huge JRPG fan I will still enjoy playing it even if it is only average (Just like I still enjoyed ES) but it may not be quite as good as I hoped.

That said RPGfan does have some differences between import reviews and later ones (I notice this particularly for VC) so we'll just have to wait and see.

 

RPGfan is a pretty good site. Besides the review of Enchanted Arms and final fantasy 12, I like their reviews and would trust them over other main stream sites.



 

It sounds like a competent RPG for a console in desperate need of more RPG's. RPG's don't appeal to everyone, but for those they do, WKC sounds like a decent addition. I'll be playing SO4 on my 360, but if I get a PS3, I will probably be picking up this title regardless.



@ The Truth

Now see, that's respectable, great post!

Yeah I'll be getting it anyway :P I follow a more old-school approach to owning titles. (From PSM baby~)

8-10 = Must buy. Seriously, if you were interested, go buy it.

5-7 = If your a fan of the genre, you'll find enjoyment. Not perfect by any means though.

4 - 0 = Practically unplayable :P Avoid.

As long as the game is somewhere above 60% I'll probably pick it up. Considering the lack of JRPG's the alternatives aren't that robust :P



From 0 to KICKASS in .stupid seconds.

25 to 30 hours... no, no, no, that's not god enough, not by far.



I'm with Zexen in that I like the reviews of this site.

The game definitely does seem to have some flaws, but it is still very appealing to me. The prospect of playing this game online with friends is definitely enticing. I'm not as much of an Online Gamer as I used to be, but a game of this nature online = yay for me.

Hopefully some of the kinks can be ironed out before North American release, especially the lack of a voice chat. I don't want to have to call people during key battles to communicate.

As for the story getting a "68%", it's Level 5, what did we expect really?

You sound like me.  Looking forward to it.

I was never expecting a mindblowing story, I know it's not L5's strength, but with a statement like this:

"Things just trudge along mindlessly in a story that makes Rogue Galaxy look like Xenogears."

That's bad
