The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 Reviews
There is a lot of returning stuff in this sequel but it also has some new things that will make fans of the prequel have even more fun with The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2. I loved the first one so I do miss Metallia, but Chelka is definitely a fun character to take on for this sequel. She's just as sassy and feisty as Metallia, but with some extra layers that make this new game feel very fresh. If you're in the mood for a new action RPG on PS4, then this is exactly what you need!
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a great game in my opinion. It has a perfect mix of RPG, Graphic Novel, Diablo looting, and Satisfying Combat elements all rolled into one. The dialogue and the outlandish story keeps you entertained between the combat sections, with lots of opportunities to upgrade your weapons, summon new allies, and upgrade your skills – combat never gets boring or monotonous as you can shake it about in so many ways! The game isn't short either, with a massive map, multiple chapters, many bosses, and tonnes of enemies, you will be entertained for hours. The soundtrack and the voice acting adds an extra layer of magic into this title and gives the game more charm and character.
With its cast of unique, adorable, and amazing characters, and a storyline sure to defrost even the coldest Garachi Ice Golem's heart, The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 serves as proof that with the right upgrades and refinements to gameplay, no series is beyond saving when given the proper TLC it deserves.
Nippon Ichi has clearly dedicated the bulk of the development resources this time around to providing a cleaner and more comprehensible system to draw players in further and minimise frustration. On that level, The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a success. I just wish the storytellers on the team were able to really cut loose and pull hard at the strings that, currently, they're only tugging lightly at.
If you liked the previous intallment then rest assured that this one is even better!
After feeling a bit underwhelmed by the first game, I found The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 to be surprisingly enjoyable. Granted, the dungeon combat can feel clunky and repetitive and the English localization seems to be trying too hard to be edgy at times. A nice mix of that Nippon Ichi charm and humor on top of its darker, witchy elements, however, makes this worth sampling from your gaming cauldron, particularly if you like more niche JRPG titles.
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is an interaction over the original title and should please its fans. The sequel fixes a lot of the original's shortcomings, however it has its own flaws and doesn't reach the same tragic developments as the previous title even with a more interesting cast. NIS managed to create an action RPG that stands out from the crowd even if it's because of its shortcomings or because of its interesting and absolutely horrifying story.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a wonderful action JRPG game with an interesting story, charismatic characters and a great gameplay; and a game that has known how to improve its experience with respect to the previous title.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is great for the fans of the original, but we can't really recommend this to newcomers due to its repetitive gameplay and subpar graphics.
While The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 improves upon its predecessor, it fails to evolve in any meaningful way, continuing to be plagued by poor story and lackluster gameplay. A solid purchase for fans of the original, but general action RPG fans should look elsewhere.
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a sequel that improves certain things but didn't add the necessary refinements to other parts that needed it. Despite that, the game is enjoyable and fans of the original will certainly feel at home.
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a game for those who love anime, dirty jokes, and hours of raids on enemies. Nice music and unique combat system are there too.

The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 improves upon its predecessor, and should appeal to fans of the first game. The story may put some off given its plodding pace and numerous quirky side stories, but most people who are interested in this game likely enjoy exactly that kind of storytelling. New Tochkas and new active abilities for the Hundred Knight give more battle options to players, though the camera angle may create a few missed opportunities to finish a sweet combo or get a surprise attack on enemies. Additional graphics options are a welcome surprise, and ultimately summarize the general feeling of The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 – improved where it counts.
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 comes down to what is more important to you. As much as I enjoyed the story, it won’t appeal to everyone and takes a fair amount of time to get going. That being said, if story drive titles are your thing and you enjoy Disgaea or things of the like, odds are this will be up your alley. If you’re looking for a new action RPG or hoping for a deeper version of the original, odds are you’ll walk away disappointed. Not because the gameplay is awful, it is just very simple and doesn’t offer much besides story.
Sequel to a quite good hack'n'slash game with dark jokes, now with another young and mouthy witch. Chelka is not Metallia, but she swears just as much. Unfortunately, it's a game for a small audience with very specific kind of humor.

The combat is fun and encourages the player to experiment with the mechanics but it is held back by a disappointing story and repetitive exploration. As a sequel, the game feels like an improvement overall but still suffers from noticeable flaws.
The Witch and The Hundred Knight 2 is a worthwhile follow up to the first game and, even with some repetitive gameplay, is a solid title worth checking out.
The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 has interesting characters and conversations and a few unique gameplay elements that differentiate it from other JRPG titles, but with dull maps and repetitive battles, exploration will make players yawn.
I enjoyed my time with Witch and the Hundred Knight 2. I thought the changes to combat did make it a little too simple and going through certain areas dragged on and became a little boring. This was offset however by the fun upgrade system for the weapons. I was always wanting to hunt down something bigger and more bad ass to slay the hordes of monsters. This was very satisfying when I got that awesome drop and took it back to the atelier and buffed it to the moon. It was a great feeling to go back and lay waste to wave after wave of baddies. If the stages had a bit more variety I would’ve scored this one higher, since I think that would’ve really made it stand out. The story is a mixed bag. It’s very predictable, but I really grew to like some of the cast by the end of the game even if they were terrible assholes to start with. This one took me about 35 hours to finish and I got the true ending. If you were a fan of the first game then you should pick this one up for sure, you will find a lot to love here for the $59.99 pricetag. If you disliked the tone or gameplay of the first game then there’s nothing here that is going to change your mind.
