There's a lot to take in when you start playing ni no kuni revenant kingdom but it is well worth your time. I especially loved the amount of quality of life changes in this game (as a PC Gamer, I love my keyboard and mouse) that separates it from other games( especially in the genre) such as mouse button remapping, sorting equipment and nifty fast travel which eliminates backtracking. On harder difficulties there is some grinding to be done, but on normal the game never challenges you too much, and that can be a good thing if you hate grinding, or have very little time. And while collecting citizens are named sidequests, they were arguably main quests in how much they make you attached to your kingdom. Then there's the joy you get when every side quest is an autocomplete, because your kingdom practically generates every item you will ever need. This on top of gorgeous visuals, and a lovely soundtrack. My only downside with the game is how some scenes deserved more voice acting than it got, that would have made this a masterpiece. Even so this is an RPG that allowed me to relax and enjoy my time.
I wanted to enjoy this game as it is my first tales game but there's too many problems with this game and it hasn't aged well at all. Huge disconnected empty locations with no definite map, lots of backtracking going back and forth with a poor fast travel system, ugly dungeons, a combat system which is ridiculously complicated and has too much button mashing, and finally a protagonist who is a broken record. It starts off slowly and gets really painful in the middle that I had to drop it. There is also limited keyboard remapping that can get bugged. Please only play this if you have nothing else. 3 points solely for good character skits and voice acting.
