White Knight Chronicles II
White Knight Chronicles II is a J-RPG and a direct sequel to the 2008 game White Knight Chronicles. Improvement that have been made include a new battle system, as well as new armor and weapons, combos, and enemies. Players have the option of importing their character from the previous 2008 game, including money, equipment, and guild ranks. An online mode, called the Georama system, allows players to create their own towns and play with friends in a guild with up to six players. The online servers were closed on June 18, 2013.
Taking place one year before the predecessor, Leonard and his companions have been summoned by Princess Cisna and set on a quest that will lead them to protect the Archduchy Faria, and the Kingdom of Balandor.
White Knight Chronicles II received mixed reviews, with an average score of 62%, praised for such improvements as its combat and multiplayer system over its predecessor, but criticized for its story and lack of original content as a sequel.
This game might have received a 3-star rating, given the 500-700 hours of gameplay required. However, the game includes an online aspect in which friends can assist one another in defeating enemies, to which the online servers were closed on June 18, 2013. The Platinum is still technically obtainable, but having to go through and defeat some tough bosses solo will require a vast amount of grinding, as well as some strategy and luck, hence the 4-star difficulty rating.
With the online servers now closed, expect well over 1,000 hours of gameplay for the Platinum.
Before we begin, just a friendly reminder that the online servers were closed on June 18, 2013, which means if you're beginning this game from scratch, you'll need to do everything solo. While this is still technically possible, you will be in for a long grind. Also, the DLC and Tickets have been removed from the PSN Store.
Also, if you happened to have cleared the previous 2008 title White Knight Chronicles, you can import your character into the sequel. Aside from having the nice boost of already owned money and equipment, you will have the option to modify your character at the start of the game, if you wish. If not, than your first order of business will be to create your avatar.
From here on out, it's up to you whether to stick with the story campaign or go off and complete the side-objectives that appear. Nothing is missable, as you will enter a free roam stage after completing the main story.
There are a total of 41 monster hunting bounties which you can sign up for in the towns, from merchants with sword symbols on the map. These should be done in order as they're listed, for new ones may not appear until you've completed certain previous requirements.
Also, be sure to be on the look out for citizens with red exclamation points on the map, who offer short side-quests to be done. There are over 150 of these quests throughout the game.
With the online servers closed, you will probably have a fairly tough time getting through the Vell levels, as there are some fairly challenging bosses to defeat solo. Also, you will need to defeat the boss in the Upper Apex of Vellgander for the Soul Of Evil trophy, which will also be quite difficult solo.
