Ni No Kuni is an "Outstanding Role-Playing game!" But I will make a point. If you're the type of person that prefers going into a battlefield guns blazing, slinging bullets without having to think, chances are Ni No Kuni really isn't for you. But if you're a lover of the old school RPG's like the big hit Final Fantasy series, then Ni No Kuni is the answer to all your prayers.
Ni No Kunis art design was managed and created by the masters Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) and boy do they give this game some great visuals.
The game plays like any old school RPG, with a turnbased battle systems, although being able to move your character freely upon the battlefield. In this game there are Familiars that you can catch and level up to become stronger.
I could go on.. but its just too good, and i don't want to give anything away, just give this a try.
I payed £40 for this on release and tbh i'm really happy with my purchase. If you can pick it up any cheaper you got yourself a steal. The games story takes 40 hours to complete. But a lot longer if you wish to do the side quests. Hope this helps.
