I saw shaddai as well so I'll skip WKC II and get that instead


I ended up doing the same thing. I also picked up all pro football 2k8.

If this game were an action RPG I would have grinded it through to the ground. Sadly it isn't. It's a lot like Final Fantasy 11, which I couldn't stand.

I don't see how you guys think this isn't an action RPG. Yeah you can't spam attacks but you move your character in real time. You have to wait for a circle to fill up which doesn't take that much time. Just because you can't spam attacks doesn't mean it's not action.

Don't believe all the bad hype this game is getting. It's a great game. While the second game is pretty much just going back through every area you've been to and some other new ones, playing through the first game will be really enjoyable and if you like the game then the second and the online will be enjoyable.

The online is still very active. Most guilds are more active than others, but the top 100 guilds together probably have a thousand to a couple thoussand daily players.

If you don't get the gameplay so don't really enjoy it, then the online might not be for you. With the online though, once you increase your ranking above GR18 you'll be on far harder quests than anything on the story mode. The enjoyment you'll get out of playing through the quests and guild is getting more powerful equipment and using the best combination of attacks to attack every enemy with their weakness and trying to master playing as your chosen class or even cross class(which requires you to switch weapons in mid combat.)

Aside from Valkyria Chronicles, it's the best console JRPG I've played this gen and it's worth getting. I don't really count Yakuza, Demon's/Dark Souls, as RPGs, but it's better than Star Ocean the Last Hope, Final Fantasy 13, Resonance of Fate, and Blue Dragon to me(haven't played anything else.)

Not sure if you want to get the first one to collect or not, but it's included as a remastered version in the second game. So you're getting both titles in this collection.

Just a heads up. You can't unlock trophies from wk1 from that version, if that's your thing.

I actually didn't know that part. I played through the standalone game and I think I only unlocked one or two trophies anyways. This game definitely takes time if you're trophy hunting, that's for sure.

Thanks for posting this. I got my order in over the weekend. I've been looking for this at a nice cheap price. Two games for one... Even if it's not the greatest I'm sure I'll find a way to have some fun with it...

I have been tempted every time this gets to $15.99 but never bit. I finally bit now since it is $13.99. I thought it seemed decent based on gameplay videos.

I hope there is a shortage on the 18th after everyone picks up there preorders. I'm counting on a problem at the factory or ibm fubaring on the cpu production.

Not sure if the price is right on this yet... if it were $10, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat


I'm with you on that. I've just heard too many mixed reactions on this one to test the waters at any price above $10.

Yeah, this is an amazing deal for 14$. I paid full retail and loved it, I still have it and occasionally play from time to time. (Trying to get friends into buying it, then I'll restart too). From both games combined, I'd have to have atleast 600 hours, i know for sure i had 300+ in 1.

Honestly, the only reason I could see someone not liking the game is because its INSANELY grind reliant. In 2 theres a point you have to hit via playing online in order to be able to level further (Otherwise you get capped at 65 instead of 80)
