While an improvement over the original release, The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition still has its problems. The weak story and annoying characters are still front and center, though the Tower of Illusion is a nice new diversion from them. If you're a hardcore Nippon Ichi fan give it a shot, but pretty much everyone else can give it a pass.

Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition is a new opportunity to own a modern JRPG classic. While its new features are largely standard fare, its real value is its preservation of what made the original great without being diluted to fit the taste of a different audience. If you were a fan of the original but sacrificed it for a more current platform, or just want a chance to own a title that snuck past you the last console generation, this a great chance to bolster your collection and indulge in a truly unique experience.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition is undoubtedly a Marmite game, even more so than its niche Nippon Ichi siblings. For JRPG fans who missed this on the PS3 and are willing to sink hours into mastering its various systems, menus, and combat skills, it can prove to be a worthwhile battle-'em-up. For everyone else, it may be too much of a commitment – unless being bossed around by a super demanding, foul-mouthed evil witch is your cup of tea.

For those that never had a chance to experience the action and zaniness of it, this is a solid package. It's funny, has interesting combat, and a unique fantasy storyline that feels dark, yet whimsical and fun. Just don't expect to be blown away. If players are looking for a solid if somewhat convoluted action RPG, this just might do the trick. It's a game done just a little bit better than the original release.
