Summary: Luminous Arc lets player take control of a pre-selected group of characters - orphans actually. Each, like any role-playing-game worth it's salt, come with their own strengths, weaknesses, abilities and attitudes.
Summary: I bought this game on a whim; all I knew was that it was a Final Fantasy Tactics-style game, and a little about the storyline. Knowing that Atlus and Nippon-Ichi (who used to have Atlus publish many of their games) tend to produce the BEST SRPGs, I decided to give it a shot.
