Def not for everyone. Jrpg usually starts slow but this game starts super duper slow. You get town teleport 10 hours into the game.

I agree with this warning. I played number 2 first and LOVED it. Figured I'd love this one too and couldn't do it. I think I put about 8 hours in before giving up on it due to pacing. I'm sure it's a great game eventually I just didn't have the patience for it

This game is also very grindy and time consuming. It has a good story but it's a time commitment. The second game is more accessible.

It is a fun but very grindy game indeed.
I had set the game difficulty to easiest and I still found it too difficult for a casual gamer. I ended up getting stuck in an area where I couldnt fight my way out.

I ended up watching the video game movie on youtube. Its a playthrough showing just the movie scenes and big fights.
Be sure to at least play or watch this ^^ before going to Netflix to watch the actual Ni No Kuni movie.

I'm a big jrpg person. This game was a total slog. Terrible pacing. Terrible combat. Terrible grinding.

The story and writing were pretty unremarkable. Like the kind of thing you'd expect from a direct-to-home movie for kids.

The music is great and the presentation is outstanding, but those aren't enough to carry this game. One of the games I tried hardest to force myself to enjoy, but I gotta say this game is a skip it.
