  1. The already absurdly wooden voice acting is sometimes marred with bugs. [Aug 2013, p.94]

    With an interesting main storyline, creative enemies, and fundamentally solid gameplay, it's too bad that that Arcania: The Complete Tale's technical flaws prevent it from being a must-play. There aren't enough decent action-RPG hybrids for console players as it is, and Arcania isn't going to do much to fix that.

    ArcaniA and its expansion are ultimately worth playing, but there's no reason to do so on the PS3. Whatever went into porting ArcaniA to the PS3 was not done with care, and the result is an ok-to-good game that now has a lot more technical and presentation issues it didn't have when it first released nearly three years ago on other platforms.

    ArcaniA has an expansive world to explore. Unfortunately there's almost nothing of interest to find there and you'll likely leave unsatisfied.

There's just something about that just keeps me coming back to play. The only reason I don't rate Arcania: The Complete Tale a ten is because there is no character customization. But the variety of weapons, and armor gives some customization of your own. I can't say the previous games in the series are better because I haven't played them. Although judging this game solely by itself it's superb. I also cannot say that this game is for everyone though, it's no Dark Souls II, or Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, but it's phenomenal in it's own way. Full Review »
