Luminous Arc DS Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: From a reviewer’s point of view, even a bad game is preferable to a merely average one. A bad game might be so shockingly wrong-footed as to actually make interesting- or at least satisfying- reviewing.

  • Excerpt: At first glance, Atlus's Luminous Arc looks like just another tactical RPG. After the first thirty minutes, my impression of Luminous Arc had not changed. Shortly after that, I started to really understand and enjoy what the game was all about.

Luminous Arc review (DS)

HonestGamers
25 November 2007

  • Conclusion: Luminous Arc would probably take gamers about a maximum of 20 hours, which is a decent length for a DS RPG. Seasoned veterans could easily make quicker work of the single-player campaign, clocking closer to 15 hours.

30 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Luminous Arc oozes Japanese fanboy gifts, it has good depth but is shallow enough for SRPG beginners to jump in and not be overwhelmed. the game takes around 24 hours to complete and is a joy all the way through with enjoyable story and lovable characters, even though it suffers from bad points I...
  • Pros: Great visuals, Enjoyable combat, Likable characters
  • Cons: Bad case of lag both in single and multiplayer variants, Not too wonderful English voice acting, would have liked Japanese as a option, Not enough freedom
