I see what you did there!

Anyway, still looks pretty awful. I mean there's a difference between a game being technically bad and it being artistically bad. This is in 720p, nice textures, great LOD, self shadowing 2 passes ( I am guessing) of AA.

But then all of that is negated when you make high poly models of completely boring and disgusting shaped models, and the texture artist is colour blind, so random picks whatever colour he wants.

How about a bit of style Level 5? No? Oh well.

As much as I ahte cel-shading, as an excuse to amke games 'artistic' this game could have benefitted from it, just to make the art not shitty.

What? this is just as bad technically as it is artistically! The textures are really awful, there is no self shading to be found, jaggies everywhere and the models are not high poly!
Are we even talking about the same game? ;)
Technical issues aside this just seems like a completely generic dull jrpg, probably the least promising of all the jrpgs this year.

They're right though.

The art direction is pretty shocking.

Dont judge the game from its graphics, appearantly this is not what they want it to stand out with. Get smart.

Hm i havent posted in a while but em.. i was looking for to this game *ALMOST* as much as ff13 and versus..

Last i saw, this game had amazing graphics.. was that just a fake? its been a while since iv followed this.

Not a graphic whore, BUT graphics are 50% of the game.. you dont buy a ps3 and xbox360 for a game to look like it was made on the ps2...

>< what happened to this game.

Give it up. It was never funny or clever. You can do that with every single game on the market.

White knight is a beautiful title, that sadly is rather dull to play. Id say the game looks better than any of the 360 rpgs(ive beat them all) Although I prefer the art of Eternal Sonata over WKC anyday.

if it wasnt for the fact you have to wait so damn long to attack, i'd probably be interested in this game. but it's a little too much like turn based combat for my liking, even if you do have direct control of your character the whole time. a combat system more akin to crisis core would have sold the game to me personally...since artisitically i kinda like it. sort of a japanese take on a more western RPG.

I really can't stand the character designs in this. Even the girls look like the boys.

isnt that a JRPG staple tho? that both sexes must look the same?

Hate to disagree but I thought that lost odyssey had much better graphcs than this does...

Still not on the graphics tangent, it looks like it might play well, shame about the long waits between attacks.

This is surprisingly ugly looking for a JRPG. If nothing else JRPGs usually have outstanding character modelling, but that's certainly not the case here.

Roll on FF13.

The time between attacks is one of many gameplay flaws I found in the title. Which is why the more I played it the less I liked it. Trying to do a second run through now and im finding it unbearable. However the graphics in motion have always been a high point for me in the game. LO was missing some of the clarity this game has. Maybe its the fact im on a aquos HDTV now instead of the Bravia HDTV I was using when I played LO, but there definately appears to be a differance.

I see everyone all excited about FFXIII, but Im looking more foreward to Magna Carta 2 than FFXIII. Square has a lot to prove before ill buy another FF game after the horrible FFX-2, FFXI, and FFXII. (as well as the decline from FF7 through FFIX and their current crop of slightly above average titles like Infinite Undiscovery. Although SO4 was top tier to me, but im a huge SO fan so that doesnt really count as they probably could have packaged dog crap in a case and labeled it SO and as long as it smelled remotely sweet id probably enjoy it.)

Are you doing that with every genre now?


Actually Im disappointed of the character models.
Compared to todays standards, they look poor...

I agree on the mediocre titles however one thing I am looking out of is the new End of Eternity, video seemed interesting.

I do find myself looking forward more and more to the new FF for 360 just really hoping it doesnt blow...

There is self shadowing (not self shading). Technically it's absolutely fine. I can tell the models are high poly, it's just a PS2 style of art has gone into it.

Simple (and yet high-poly) models, to suit the low res output (480p needs more obvious detail to be conveyed) of the last gen, VERY simple textures, once again - high res, but to suit the low resolution of the last generation.

They will hopefully advance, but it's like they are working to cater for the lat generation artistically. And they clearly haven't learnt about this generation.

Lets see what the sequel is like xD

PS2 style o.O?

So you say they made the high-res model on purpose look edgy?!

Yeah, make no mistake, even if I know ill hate it the odds are ill buy FFXIII, but likely for the PS3 unless it has an install. End of Eternity is looking really good to me, so im a bit excited about it. Espeically since I love TriAce games so much. Im anticipating a good announcement about mistwalker games come E3 as well. I think it will be a fine year for JRPGs and RPGs in general for all platforms when all is said and done.

The Graphics alright. Background and colours a bit dull but it didn't bother me much. Only the princess ticks me off beyond reason...
Commented on 2009-05-12 06:25:55
the giant monster battles look cool. . . ive never seen final fantasy do that. although, ff12 had better graphics then this game. white knight got so-so scores in japan, it should be interesting to see how it does else where
