Arc Rise Fantasia

Synopsis
Arc Rise Fantasia is set in the Meridian Empire. Creatures called "Contaminant Dragons" are causing a lot of trouble as they pass the Meridian in flocks. If one is killed, the resulting explosion poisons the local area. When the empire receives word that a massive horde has its sights on the capital of Diamant, it immediately sends out an army to fight them, including L'Arc, a cool and collected novice mercenary, and his friend Alf, the beloved prince and second in line for the throne. L'Arc is severely injured during the battle, but is saved by a girl named Ryfia, who has secrets in her past and possesses the power to control "ley squalls," naturally occurring storms of no magic that usually take the form of luminous rain. A young woman named Adele, who has been a friend of L'Arc since childhood, renders assistance to the party through use of her unique form of combat, Luminomancy.

  • From the developers who created the highly lauded Luminous Arc, comes their next epic role-playing game exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a child of the 80s, I grew up with traditional Japanese Role-Playing Games (JRPGs) such as Final Fantasy II and III (aka IV and VI respectively), Lufia I and II, Xenogears, Phantasy Star, Breath of Fire III, and many more. These were the golden JRPGs that made most of us older RPG fans hooked on most things Japanese. They maintained a good story that didn't require a mastery of Jungian and Fruedian psychology, characters a player could actually relate to and understand, simplistic game play that didn't involve 14-different styles of useless upgrades, and were generally fun and relaxing to play enough to make the phrase, "let's all go on an adventure," actually fun to yell!

HOWEVER, in the past 8-10 years, JRPGs have gone... well, weird. With hair and clothing styles birthed from cross-breeding members of Depeche Mode and Lady Gaga, along with the self-loathing characters that suffer from more inner-turmoil than a Coldplay album, JRPGs have just gotten terrible lately. Sure, there have been some notable good ones in recent years such as Tales of Vesperia and... uh... *flips through collection*... Tales of Vesperia, but the vast majority of JRPGs for the console systems have really sunken to new lows (Magna Carta II anyone?). If anything, North American RPGs have really come into their own with titles such as Fallout 3, Mass Effect I and II, Knights of the Old Republic, Fable I and II, and, dare I say it, World of Warcraft.

With all this in mind, Arc Rise Fantasia was a complete breath of fresh air. When first announced and featured back in 2008, software developer Imageepoch promised a classic-style JRPG that went back to combating evil nations, airships, flying dragons, and crystals without weird hair or emo characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome game with a horrible drawback: voices July 27, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is amazing. The graphics are a sight to see and pleasant to the eyes. The characters all stand out and aren't horrible to look at. For those of you who like anime, the artist/studio is the infamous Bones. One of their animes? Eureka Seven. See the resemblance?

Anyways, here's my Pros and Cons

Pros:
The graphics are amazing.
The music was done by the famous Yasunori Mitsuda (he did the Xenosaga series, Shadow Hearts series, and the Chrono series), and is pleasant to the ears and gets good when in a battle and when some dramatic scene is played.
The controls are simple and can be used with the Wii Remote w/ Nunchuk, Classic Controller, and GameCube Controller.
The battle is interesting as there's an AP system, which is a lot like Skies of Arcadia, and can be diverse throughout the party.
The overworld is a lot like the Tales Of Games and is vibrant.
Many things to do, like upgrading weapons during battle and then using transferring the power from the weapon to another.
The magic system is like the ORIGINAL Final Fantasy, where you use a point system (which is your MP) and can upgrade it in shops
They have on-screen monsters, so no random battles (though I'm used to that due to Final Fantasy)

Cons:
It's slow in the beginning and the battle system is a little hard to get use to, but is way easier than you think.
I haven't played the game far enough to get the cons, but I'm sure there are some that can be obvious.
The voices...........THE VOICES!!!!!!!!!

The biggest drawback in this game is the voices. About 90-99% of you reading this will agree on the voices. They are horrendous. In fact, this is some of the worse voice acting I've ever heard....EVER!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Way under rated! June 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ok first thing I want to say about this game, is that it is WAY under rated! From reading all the reviews before I bought this game, of the many I read all them complained about the same thing! Bad voice acting, and I will say the voice acting is the worst out of all the games I've ever played, and I can understand that there are people who can't stand it. And for those who say the graphics are bad, DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! Just cause they aren't as good as the xbox 360 and playstation 3 graphics does not mean the graphics for this game is bad! It's not like it's nintendo 64 or even game cube graphics! Again the graphics for the wii are not as good as xbox 360 and playstation 3, so what can you expect? Anyway when I think of best things about this game I think of mainly three things. First is the fact that it took around 70 hours to beat the game not including the many times I lost from most of the bosses. Not to mention I didn't finish all the side quests for the game, not to mention most of them! Though a good 10 hours of the game involves just going around leveling up cause of the many bosses I had a hard time beating. The second great thing about the game is how hard most of the bossed are! Out of the around 20 bosses there were only 4 I think that I beat on the first try! Last boss was the most ANNOYING! The final boss was actually very hard! The third thing great about this game which many people point out in their reviews is how great the storyline is! Also for those reading this who have not played the game I want to warn before you buy this game that it is a very emotional story, so if you don't like emotional stories I would suggest not buying this game. Though if you like stories that are emotional and have lots of surprises, then I would highly recommend buying this game! Read more ›
