Here's an awesome price tag with a mediocre game attached... Grainger Games's offering of £19.99 undercuts the next best price of £22.98 (from Amazon, Gamestation or Gameplay) by £3 and is the cheapest I have ever seen the game available without a voucher code.
This is the second great deal from Grainger Games in a week, maybe they will be gracing these pages more often in days to come... I had my reservations at first; the website is ugly as sin and awkward to navigate and I didn't know anyone who had used the store before but I bought a copy of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days from them last week and was amazed by how quickly it arrived.
White Knight Chronicles isn't terrible but it certainly isn't the amazing exclusive rpg that the PS3 is so crying out for. The enemies are excellent but unfortunately you will be facing them in a shoddy combat system that is lacking in fun-factor and often far too easy. The environments are often pretty and interesting but the character models are a lot less pleasing and their lip synching is horrendous and distracting. Thankfully this is off-set by some great voice acting which is, at times, of superb standard. There's at least 30 hours of gameplay here and that's without tackling the heaps of side quests on offer. The problem is you may spend a good portion of that time fighting off waves of boredom.
For a slightly more positive second opinion, check out Brendan's review here.
