Review: Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii Retail)

Message reputation : 100% (4 votes)
Take the role of a mercenary Larc Bright Lagoon in this epic fight against the gods in an atempt to save the common race!

Story & Gameplay
The story in this game is epic and has an emotion driven feel to it. The game is a turn based rpg that has a unique rogress system that allows you to boost stats and summon mighty rogress to aid you! Expect it to take quite some time to play through this game as the main story will likely take 80+ hours and if you add the secret dungeon, hidden bosses and sidequests, it can easily take 150 hours to complete this game 100%.

Wow, just wow this games graphics are absolutely awe-inspiring as the in game graphics such as models, special effects as well as the towns and dungeons are better then what's seen in most PS2 rpgs. It also has mind-blowing CGI cutscenes that look like something you'd see on a X-Box 360 rpg.

Sound & Music
The voice acting in this game gets alot of hate by gamers and though it is not AAA quality it's still above average. The soundtrack is awesome and most of the music fits very well.

Bottom line: This is one great rpg that no gamer should miss out on as it has a great story with tons of sidequests, 100+ hours of gameplay, decent voice acting (despite what you might read on other sites), an epic soundtrack and not to mention graphics that defy the limitations of the Wii.

Score  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven  Like a Star @ heaven 9.5/10

9- Awesome This game has little in the way of flaws, and is a highly enjoyable experience.

Despite all of the criticism and bad press this game has gotten,I think it's one of the best rpgs since Final Fantasy XII Smile

I just don't get why every hardly changed call of duty game gets rave reviews,yet an awesome and unique rpg like this gets treated like trash...... Thank you for giving this great game a score it deserves Very Happy

This is a underrated game for sure,but your review is great and unbiased Very Happy
Thanks you two!
This is a great game no doubt about it, but it cheeses me off that Xenoblade and The Last Story are almost certainly not going to see an american release Sad
Nice review! Is this a good buy at $10?

My guess is he got is used at EB Games since they sell it for roughly translated from yen to American dollars about $11 here in Tokyo Wink
