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.
