Graphics ... For a game that was announced around 2006-2007, the graphics are still better then most 2007 and 2008 release games, such as Eternal Sonata and Infinite Undiscovery, however games like SO4 and LO are still better looking, as far as graphical beauty goes.
Gameplay ... This is what matters the most, and i've play alot of current gen RPG's in general on HD consoles, and to be honest, it does bare some traits to FFXII ... however there are big differences.
I'll begin to explain now...
in the end WKC has alot to offer when it comes to gameplay, its not epic, however you will get goosebumps from time to time when you become the White Knight... now level-5 let us have our own knights...
Art-Style ... Is good, i was expecting a more Semi-Real aty-style sort of like Final Fantasy or Enchanted Arms, however we got a strange combo of Dark Cloud and Infinite Undiscovery, its nice, but i expected more, still i can make pretty boys and thats all that matters to me.
Music ... I don't like most tracks with this game, very Fantasy cliche', however some White knight Battles are nothing short of a true epic backround of music. Also the City of Greede BY FAR, has the best soundtrack in the entire game, a choir of angels it sounds like, very epic.
Audio ... Battle Sound effects of weapons Rival that of Soul Calibur IV, a weapons based HD fighting game, thats saying alot. its great.
Voice Acting ... It's good, actually, i prefer it more then SO4, IU, LO, Enchanted Arms, and most others with ease. there are some corny moments, but its mostly only between Leo and Cisna.
Story ... Okay, okay............. i know what your thinking... "OMG WKC MUST HAVE CRAP STORY" well sir... shockingly... its actually good, not great or epic, but good, 50% out of 100%. it does its job, and cut-scenes are semi-long to long, some short, but all to the point of whats going on. Highly predictable, even for newbs to the genre of JRPGs, but for a game more focused on the online mode, its worth it.
Replay Value ... hundreds of hours of gameplay between the online and offlines modes, with more quests and social apps to come, beyond what i expected as far as replay goes.
Character Creation ... The best i've used on an HD console, i prefer DW6: Empires to this, but hey there are ALOT of things your able to do. so much so that it'd be impossible to name them all. its 9/10 in my book though.
Online ... Vast, Fun, Great, Epic, Funny, Awesome, and Wonderful. This game was MADE for online.
Judgment ... By judgment of yours truly ...Overall an' 8.3 outta' 10.
A short Pro's and Con's as follows ...
