    Arcana Heart 3 is a good fighting game when you don't look at the low-res graphics. The combat system is quite elaborate and with the big amount of different combinations in a fight, Arcana Heart 3 is a must-buy for every fan of the 2D fighting genre.

    Best left to those who like hardcore fighters and Lolita in equal measures. [Sept 2011, p.94]

    It's rare that you can state that no two characters in a beat-'em-up play alike but, in this case, it's absolutely undeniable. [Issue#111, p.120]

    Hardcore fight fans are going to love it, but Arcana Heart 3 makes no real concessions to more casual players.

    ArcSystemWorks delivers another 2D beat 'em up filled with Japanese gas. With a great deal of fighters and different combat-styles, the latest Arcana Heart manages to score, despite its lack of story or new genre-related elements.

    A surprisingly competent 2D fighter, but one whose presentation and muted combat will restrict it only to hardcore fans.
