White Knight Chronicles II Gameplay

White Knight Chronicles II is like its predecessor, a role-playing video game presented in a third-person perspective. However, some changes to improve game play in all aspects have been made, such as new battle system mechanics, more combos, new armor and weapons to make, new enemies and new dungeons.

White Knight Chronicles II has received mixed reviews. It received an aggregated score of 60.47% on GameRankings and 60/100 on Metacritic. Famitsu has awarded the game a 33/40, with the reviewers criticizing the story but praising the updated gameplay features. The game sold 107,655 on its first day in sales and 162,289 in the first week, which was below expectations, given first-week sales of the first game. GameTrailers was less positive and gave it a 5.7/10. GameSpot gave it a 6.5/10, praising the improvements to combat and the multiplayer, but criticized the single player. Game Informer gave it a 3.5/10, saying "Where the game falls depressingly short is in Level-5 ignoring the many valid criticisms of the first game and churning out a cookie-cutter sequel that is even more of a rehash than the average yearly sports title or shooter franchise."
