White Knight Chronicles is a disappointment. Besides the unimpressive visuals and poorly-told story, the game suffers from a flawed battle system and inconsistent gameplay rules.
The monsters may look interesting, but slaying beasts is way too easy in this forgettable role-playing game.

White Knight Chronicles does something that recent traditional RPGs have not: it has played it safe and close to genre conventions. While taking a worthwhile risk in the combat system , Level 5 doesn't stray from the old magic of what makes RPGs some of the greatest games published.
White Knight Chronicles was a disappointment for me, especially coming from a quality developer like Level-5. Some of the studio’s trademark customization helps to give the game some legs, as does its hefty multiplayer component. However, for interesting combat, deep characters, and an engaging fantasy, I’d look elsewhere.
Despite their relative strength, the disparate halves of White Knight Chronicles fail to gel in meaningful ways.
