White Knight Chronicles 2 opening has me hopeful

Recommended Videos

If you played the first White Knight Chronicles you’ll know that it was an enjoyable journey marred by a clunky battle system. But there’s hope for this game, and a lot of that hope lies in the story. If you did play the first game you’ll know that there’s a lot more story to be told, and judging from this opening movie, it looks like they’re picking up right where the first game left off.

Even with the mediocre score I gave the first game, I’m kind of hoping they’ll clean up the combat and navigation a bit. Those two things alone would make White Knight Chronicles 2 a better game. They story? It’s fine. This movie lets us  know that the battle is growing to be quite epic. You’ll see massive warships move about land, air and sea as the conflict escalates.

It sucks that this is about 60% CG and another 40% in-game story scenes. There’s barely any gameplay shown. I hope we see that very soon — maybe from game play videos from the summer release in Japan.

It could go either way on this sequel. Hopefully they’ve learned from the first game.
