Summary: Its good game, but not without its faults. When it comes to gameplay, sometimes you'd wish this game was more like Fire Emblem. But its fun nonetheless. The story... its lengthy one but, well, its quite cliche and the main is a bit to soft for the look of his appearance. But the overall art is excellent and you'll want to discover everything about the girls you like in the game. Overall, this game leaves much to be desired but it still a satisfying enough experience.
Summary: Pros: +Some good art +Good music +Well written story +Simplistic Gameplay that anyone can pick up on +Fast paced battles Cons: -Graphically doesn't look much different from a GBA game -Very easy game -It does little to separate itself from the first game or to really try to stand out in the genre. This is a con that is subjective, however Last year, the first Luminous Arc dropped down.
Summary: This is a good tactical RPG. Not quite the level of Tactics Ogre or Final Fantasy tactics, but well worth the purchase. It seems simple at first but the difficulty does ramp up after a bit, so be prepared.
Summary: I found this title has all the little fun and addictive traits of any good strategy role playing game, though it isn't as deep and involving as something like Final Fantasy Tactics or the uber-complex Disgaea games. The storyline is pretty average for a JRPG game, but it has enough going on to keep you interested and have a laugh or two. I had fun with this game, and it's a must have for any SRPG/anime fans out there.
Summary: Luminous Arc has again kept me entertained every minute playing it. Its anime-like graphics was drawn and generated greatly, and the gameplay is definitely entertaining. Story I thought the story was a little typical and probably the biggest flaw in the game. Its like all the other RPG anime games. 1 hero, 1 super villian who wants to take over/change the world for his own purposes blah blah blah. nothing to say here.
Summary: Luminous Arc 2 is a fun, average-quality turn-based strategy rpg. Pros: > Voice acting brings the story to life. > combat is streamlined and simple. > engaging storyline. > "Intermission" provides interesting & entertaining background on the characters. > Beautiful music composed by Yasunori Mitsuda The voice acting was one of my favorite things about this game. It really made the characters come to live and kept me engaged in the story.
Luminous Arc 2 is a fun and simple srpg that leaves you with a very satisfying experience.

Summary: The combat is very simple and strait forward; you move your characters around on a grid style battle field and defeat your opponents before they defeat your team. All thought you can only use a max of 6 characters during any one fight over all you get a large amount of characters to pick from, which I liked a lot. Also equipment and skills are balanced well so the game has a nice flow to it. If you can't get past your current battle, no problem.
