This looks terribly bland and cliche. I remember when they first announced this I was actually hyped.

Hmm this has gotten bad reviews from NA review sites but then again some of my favorite JRPGs have gotten bad reviews as well. I'll probably get this after I'm done with Darksiders and Bioshock 2.

Finally, a JRPG on the consoles again, I've been craving a solid RPG for so long now, I have this one on order.  Gameplay looks all well and good, but I'll really need to see more of the game's story because, well...that's why you play RPGs.  It looks to be decently promising though, and I really like the environments and characters.   I don't expect it to be as good as FFXIII though (which is really solid so far)
 
Plus the Level 5 games area always really sold.  Not sure how i feel about the online stuff, RPGs remain single-player experiences to me, but it's worth giving a shot.

Defiantly a unique take on combat systems, that looks pretty good.

Is it just me, or is the White Knight wearing high heels?
 
Why is Leonard's White Knight Gundam thing wearing high heels? Raiden also wore high heels in MGS4.
 
Do Japanese men really enjoy wearing high heels?

My one complaint, as with most US RPGs, is the voice acting needs work.  One of these days, RPG developers will realize that people will be happy with the japanese audio + subtitles.

I agree with Dave that the pure turned based JRPGs are the best of the breed.
 
This is like Final Fantasy Power Rangers.
 
You can also punch through walls, so it's like Mortal Kombat.
 
FInal Kombat Rangers.

yeah, i was really excited, but seeing it now.... although i was excited by FFXIII too and seeing that makes me think I'd HATE playing that, so I don't know now if Im gonna buy either one of these: one will be boring, and the other will annoy me... You know what maybe Ill pass on both... 3D Dot Hero here i come! 
 
Unless you think its worth waiting until $30-40?? yes/no?

@squidracerX:  
 
I can't speak on WKC yet, I don't have it, but I can say I am really enjoying FFXIII.  Unless you really really hate linear games (It's pretty linear for about the first half, then it opens up a lot) it's one of my favourite FF games yet.  It's pretty linear, but solid story and really fun [and challenging] battles.   
 
I'll be getting WKC too, but I don't have it yet, probably gonna finish FFXIII first.

hmmmm no i don't mind linear really, but its the characters in FF that have been less and less my style in recent years, and the combat system in the enw one looked like what would annoy me... But i could be wrong! So far in the FF universe I did not like FF X at all. I am more of a FF 1-6, tactics, and i liked 12 okay kinda guy. But like Dragon Quest VIII is linear and its my favorite RPG in recent memory. I think character/enemy design is a big part for me?

Nolan Northathon '10 rolls on with the voice of Cyrus in White Knight Chronicles voiced by, yes, Nolan North. So February is claimed by the voice of the gaming generation, what will he star in next month?

That is the way to play this game, make your custom character as ugly as possible.
