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: ★★★★★★★★★½ 9.5/10

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

Good review, but it's really short.

Yeah, it's very unfortunate.

But hope's not lost, Europeans could get it on Wii U as a Wii download, if there's some demand.

- Arc Rise Fantasia isn't the only game I'd pay 19.99€ for, there's also
- Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny,
- Phantom Brave: We Meet Again,
- Trauma Team,
- Excitebots: Trick Racing,
- Shiren The Wanderer,
- Fishing Resort,
- Mario Super Sluggers,
- and a few other gems that are out in the US and never got to EU.
@SKTTR Unfortunately Arc Rise Fantasia and Rune Factory's developers both went bankrupt and their IP's weren't sold off, so those two series are officially dead and thus can't be released on the Virtual Console service...Neutral

Whoa, it's one of @Ichigofan's earliest reviews... "See the legend before he became a legend!" Even back then your reviews were superb!

That one smiley seems a little lonely, however...

@Natsume Thanks for the heads-up!

@GeekyGamerZack That smiley was an oversight, our website didn't have the emoticon feature until slightly after I wrote the review so it just sort of showed up! Laughing
What happened to the screenshots? Surprised
