Excerpt: Mechanically, Luminous Arc 2 is a solid example of a tactical RPG. Height and character facing are important, but not to the degree that it's impossible to win a battle without striking the enemies from behind. When you're told that the monster has a 54% chance of hitting you, the blow connects half the time, more or less. Stylus control makes navigating battles and menus easier rather than getting in the way.
Conclusion: It may be hard to pick out the best RPG on the Nintendo DS because they have so many. Luminous Arc 2 is one of the best Nintendo’s portable has to offer. Atlus has done it again by releasing another top notch game. If you own a DS then you better pick up this game right away.
Excerpt: Luminous Arc 2 doesn't innovate much on the standard strategy role-playing game formula, but much like mom's home cooking, it fills a comfort niche in this turn-based genre. There's a decent level of difficulty to engage your brain, a smattering of comedy to engage your humor, and a heaping helping of content to engage your free time.
Pros: Difficulty encourages smart, strategic play, Side quest objectives keep gameplay from getting mired down
Cons: Consecutive battles can make restarts a real pain, Scripted monster spawns are rude, Characters and storytelling can come off a little flat
Summary: Proposant une durée de vie solide, une réalisation efficace et un mode en ligne sympathique, Luminous Arc 2 est un bon tactical RPG. Mais étant totalement en anglais, il sera difficile de le conseiller à tous.
