  1. When the reward for beating the next boss is just more bland gameplay, it just isn't worth the effort.

    Graphics are just beautiful as well as the story. The characters are fully developed, despite the awful voice acting. In my opinion, the gameGraphics are just beautiful as well as the story. The characters are fully developed, despite the awful voice acting. In my opinion, the game would've been perfect if it weren't for the terrible voice acting. After you finish the story there are many reasons to keep playing, though I'm not gonna spoil it. There are a variety of detailed weapons. Customizing armforce adds to the strategy. The game encourages you to level up and unlock armforce, though it can be very time consuming. I cried so much on a few parts.. especially the ending. The OST is amazing and flawless!! Currently in my music lists. I recommend this game to all rpg players out there. This game needs more credit and should have a sequel!! Full Review »

Siendo honestos este titulo parece una fusión entre Final Fantasy VII y Tales of Shymponias por muchas cosas en su desarrollo.
    El replay value es otra de las cosas buenas, ya que hay mucho lugares que es necesario re explorar para que puedas encontrar armas especiales, diálogos comicos y algo que no podía faltar: jefes especiales los cuales tienen alto nivel de dificultad.
    Con todo esto podemos concluir que Arc Rise Fantasia es un gran juego que desafortunadamente fue poco conocido gracias a la exagerada critica negativa e injusta que recibió.
    Afortunadamente este título se cruzó en el camino de este servidores para re valorarlo y darle el trato que se merecer
    La calficación que le otorgo a este titulo es de: 9.5

    While I admit ARF has its problems (mostly with the easy level-hard boss setup) this is still one of my favorite games ever. The bosses areWhile I admit ARF has its problems (mostly with the easy level-hard boss setup) this is still one of my favorite games ever. The bosses are challenging but extremely rewarding, the story is contrived but interesting, the characters are written well, and the battle system is absorbing. Depending on how you play, the boss battles can and will last up to an hour, but you'll never be bored in your attempt to survive and win. The bosses don't have a set pattern that gets boring after two rounds, but keep you on your toes as they will continually shave off your remaining health. If you love JRPGs, can tolerate some of the smaller things, and have a Wii, this game is a MUST! Full Review »
