Product Description

This world is called Horodyn, so named for its first king. At the edge of a village surrounded by a huge forest lies the powerful stone Arcana, the source of all order in the world. It is said that only one with power can acquire Arcana. Slayers annihilate hordes of monsters, so that they could lay their hands on Arcana. What power does it hold within? And to what destiny is one with Arcana bound?

3.0 out of 5 stars A monster hunter clone? Not quite. April 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   

Hey. I've seen a lot of people calling ANY game out there a Monster Hunter clone, and to be frank, it's not accurate. This game has been likened to a "MH Clone", but I'm here to tell you that isn't necessarily true, and in the case of Lord of Arcana, that's actually a bad thing.

STORY: 1/5

There is none, or very little at all. You start off as a High level, uberpwning everything foolish enough to challenge you and your manliness, then you fight a giant dragon, hear some mysterious voices, and get teleported into a new world where you go to seek ultimate power. From there on, there's no story, and the game is broken up into missions which have VERY little background information.


Now this is going to be a bit difficult to explain. The environment is rather bland, without much to look at. You have your swamps, Volcano's, Your forest. They all do their part, and never succeed in amazing you. You have your character, which you can change to suit your personal taste. Then you have the monsters. Now, this is a mixed bag. Some of the monsters are really impressive, Like Bahamut, Grendel (Think the armor them kids in Kingdom Hearts Birth By sleep, But giant with a huge goddess-Shaped sword) and Vermillion. Your armor looks good, with much of it being practical and not overly flashy. But my big gripe is this.


Seriously. This may sound minor, but some of the weapon textures are PITIFUL. They literally look like they're paper-thin, super-pixelly, and uninteresting. They really could of worked on the weapon textures a bit more to make them not look like they were done is MS Paint.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better September 4, 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This game had so much potential. However, if you like a serious grind and a difficult journey, then this is your game. This game could have been much better, but it felt like they had to make a game so difficult, that it would want you to play co-op. I don't think the PSP has a big co-op following here in the U.S. so this would not be a great solo game. Your weapons do not deal any amount of damage comparable to what the enemies do to you. They can kill you in 2-4 hits, while it takes you 20 or more. It is like fighting a bunch of "elite" mobs in MMORPG games, even at level 1. Also, the fights are not very interactive and the enemies are easily avoidable, but to just shoot, dodge, shoot, dodge multiply that combo by 20 times, it gets old quick. Also, the boss fights are boring. On average they take anywhere from 15-25 mins just for one boss fight. They use the same 3 mechanics each time, and atleast of of their attacks is so overpowered it knocks you out, and they continue to pounce on you till your life is gone. Then you rez, then they do it all over again.

I tried really hard to like this game, but I am not one for a difficult and continuous grind that reaps no rewards and leaves my frustrated.

It could have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wickedly fun game! February 26, 2011
By Nhazul

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game since launch, and I have to say I've had a blast with it. It has simple quest driven game play similar to monster hunter, with a light dose of story. It's all about beating up the monsters and upgrading you equipment. There are some tedious things about the game, such as pre-boss battles that are required to fight the boss, and sometimes it can be a pain in the arce to get those arcana stones. With that aside, i've had a great time.

If your a monster hunter fan, I would say give this game a try, it may hold you interested long enough for the next MH to launch. Monster hunter is one of my favorite game series, and I thought this one had it's own special/fun take on the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
Kinda reminds me of monster hunter but not as hard. The game has a decent story line. It is a great game for the price. The overall concept is hack and slash your way through missions in order to get monster parts to build new gear.
complexity 2/5
graphics 4/5
bots 2/5
gameplay 4/5
story 3/5
overall 3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the ability to play with others around me September 26, 2014
By Seecee
Verified Purchase
Love the ability to play with others around me, plus it also has the ability to share the game as a demo. Avatars are relatively customizable. Main downside is a clunky camera control and inability to buy or make potions early game, but repeating levels allows for a buildup of necessities when needed.
