Product Description

Product Description

Fed up with being unable to travel beyond the borders of her swamp, the witch Metallia forges a contract with the legendary Hundred Knight to help her realize her ambition of spreading her swamp throughout all of Medea. As the Hundred Knight, your mission is to do whatever your master, the Swamp Witch, commands. Explore the world, destroy Pillars built to prevent her swamp from spreading, and wreak indiscriminate havoc. However, in the back of your inhuman mind, you begin to wonder... What prevents Metallia from leaving the swamp? Why do the other witches shun her, and how can she survive in a swamp that is notorious for how poisonous its fumes are? Is Metallia really a witch to respect, or is she one to fear?

5.0 out of 5 stars Darker than advertised, better than critics say. 28 Mar 2014

If you're used to the harmless evil of Disgea and come here expecting more of the same, you're going to be shocked, offended, or may even find the game unplayable. Metallica is genuinely despicable for much of the earlier parts of the game, so be forewarned. Personally, I enjoyed playing henchman for a protagonist whose evil was genuine rather than cartoonish, but your reaction may differ.

That out of the way, this is a truly excellent game. A mighty anchor title that'll keep you playing the previous gen console a while longer.

The combat is excellent. With a little practice you'll be agile, dangerous, and feeling satisfied. The screen is busy without being crowded, overhead warnings are useful without being patronising. Systems are heaped high without being convoluted. Just excellent all-round design.

Major characters who seem typical at first grow out of it quickly. The story is unusual- as it has to be, with a genuine not-for-laughs villain who doesn't suit many typical anime tropes. Sato Tenpei delivers a superb soundtrack to accompany the Hundred Knight, which comes as a surprise to nobody in light of the guy being a major talent. And finally, while I can't speak for the English dub because I switched straight away, the Japanese dub is up to the JP Voice Acting industry's usual standards of consistent excellence.

Do yourself a big favour if you're a NIS fan, a JRPG fan, and/or just a fan of mid-budget oddities that embarrass hundred-million dollar AAA's by matching their quality while far exceeding their courage and imagination. Buy this game.

Witch and the Hundred Knight is a Japanese action RPG in a similar vein to Secret of Mana. It has a warped sense of humour and an unusually dark story line. So far, so interesting!

As you guide the Hundred Knight - a mute, diminutive warrior with a penchant for big spiky and clubby weapons - through the game, different gameplay systems are revealed. These gradually increase the complexity of the game's item and combat systems, preparing you to serve the Hundred Knight's summoner and master, the Great Swamp Witch Metallia, an explosive-tempered blonde with a foul mouth and disdain for excessive clothing.

Throughout the game you'll return to Metallia's swamp lair repeatedly to progress through the story, watch conversations between the game's characters and stock up on a few items. The ultimate aim is to spread the witch's swamp over the world so that she can pass freely through the world and trample.. everyone.

The characters look gorgeous in their 2D sorta-animated conversation guises, it's an interesting plot which thankfully avoids saving the world while controlling a lifeless, miserable anime teenager with spiky hair, the game's music is a high point as well with catchy tunes spread throughout game worlds, battles and intermissions. The core of combat is simple - Hundred Knight can target an enemy to circle them and swap slaps or jump out of the way, if timed 'correctly' this evasion move can slow time allowing you to get more hits on your hapless enemy. There are then further facets of combat - strong attacks, summoning help in the form of other underworld denizens in different guises, an all-in boost attack that ramps up power and defense in exchange for limiting the amount of time Hundred Knight can fight.

a very amusing game. it takes many references from the likes of disegea and put them to use in a different way which makes for an enjoyable and humourous gaming experience.
