I love grinding. I really do. There's something inherently pleasing about gradually getting stronger and more adept in battle, about seeing those stats edge further and further towards godliness. Many JRPGs require grinding, but Ni no Kuni turns it into a chore, a thankless slog that kills your momentum. Ni no Kuni clings ferociously to every worn-out JRPG trope it can possibly think of - excessive grinding, slow pace, idiotic heroes - and then wraps it all in truly beautiful artwork and character design. Hardcore JRPG fans will love Ni no Kuni despite its clunky quirks, and the game has just enough going for it that almost anyone will enjoy playing for a little while.
