  1. The real key to Arkadian Warriors’s success is the way in which Wanako made the user interfaces super simple and extremely user-friendly.
  2. The limits to the number of quests to take on and number of players in a co-op game really hold the game back from being one of the best Arcade offerings around.

    The frenzied pace makes for a pleasant enough co-op diversion, but it's also one that's devoid of meaning or longevity. [Feb 2008, p.79]

    As anticipation goes, it certainly delivers and keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next or whether there is another surprise yet to be revealed. [Issue#29, p.120]

    We can handle repetitious gameplay in our dungeon crawlers -- it’s generally mindless fun. When you add in a total lack of variety in dungeon and mission design and just toss a bunch of generic monsters our way, it just becomes mindless.
  6. Arkadian Warrior could have been the Xbox Live Arcade's Diablo, but due to lazy programming, a boring story, repetitive level designs and crummy graphics, it just ends up being another average action RPG.

    An RPG-lite that's just too watered down to be at all enjoyable. [Mar 2008, p.94]

    This is a casual Gauntlet style dungeon crawler with RPG elements and i find it to be quite fun.

    It's a fun game and worth buying if you have nothing better to do gameplay is simple and its a good way to waste 1-3 hours.

    Imagine Diablo with slightly better graphics and a childish plot. Ta Da! Arkadian Warriors. Mindless button mashing and hacking through Imagine Diablo with slightly better graphics and a childish plot. Ta Da! Arkadian Warriors. Mindless button mashing and hacking through dungeons for slightly better weapons and armor. Slightly cool that it has multiplayer. Expand

    All around poor execution. Too bad, I was looking for a cute hack n slash to play with my bro.
