The more I played The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition, the more I wonder who thought bringing this game back was a good idea. There are plenty of action RPG dungeon crawlers available, and unless you're absolutely desperate for one, I would never suggest picking this one up. Its story is boring, its humor is off, the gameplay isn't much good, and the systems get repetitive fast. Some games should stay dead. The story is horrible, the gameplay is a sea of boring with few bright spots, and there's little worth playing this game for. Though look up the soundtrack on Youtube.
This is, however, still the same game that released two years ago, with the same flaws and blemishes as before. If you really wanted the game on the PS3 but missed it, then go ahead and grab this. However, if you already own the PS3 version, then there is little reason to pick it up.
While an improvement over the original release, The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition still has its problems. The weak story and annoying characters are still front and center, though the Tower of Illusion is a nice new diversion from them. If you're a hardcore Nippon Ichi fan give it a shot, but pretty much everyone else can give it a pass.
