  1. The main idea I want you all to take away from this review is that Arkadian Warriors is not really an RPG. A more accurate genre description would be “Almost-2D side-scrolling hack and slash.” If that sounds like fun to you, knock yourself out. I think I will use my $10 to help pay for another month of WoW.
  2. There should be no shame in sticking to a formula, but Arkadian Warriors reproduces it with so little ambition it plays like an ABC of what the genre needs to avoid to move forwards; appearing content to wallow in a stereotype because action role-playing games are under-represented on Live Arcade.

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

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

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

    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. Full Review »
