Summary: I actually really love this game ^_^ I bought it originally when it first came out and then again recently as I had lost it and suddenly really wanted to play it again! There are quite a few things wrong with Arc: ToTS... The graphics are pretty poor when you compare them to games like Final Fantasy X, the battle system is slow and uninspired, and there are no cut scenes.
Summary: I actually really liked this,the demo on the PS2 mag was awful,it was just the first 20 minutes or so and unless you ran everywhere and didn't stop to chat/shop it cut out!,anyway the game is much better,the story is intriguing although a bit obvious and you can see the twist a mile off, What saves this is the combat system,it's excellent,like a tabletop miniature game as opposed to lining up face to face and taking it in turns to hit each other.
Summary: Well first off im surprised to see theres a strategy guide ^^ (albeit for the american version of the game... but really i dont think there will be any differences....) Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits Official Strategy Guide and now onto the review, i have yet to complete the damn game but of course with many RPGs the true potential of the game and the characters isnt revieled till you get creamed by the end boss.
Summary: OK if you don't like fairly slow paced RPG's then look away now-Arc Twilight of the Spirits isn't for fast action fans or speed merchants. The game has decent graphics and a turn based battle system which has a tactics element as you try and move to the best position for the next turn. You can also use magic and all the usual RPG stuff like stats.,shops,levelling up and talking to townspeople etc.
Summary: i have in my time play more then a fair share of rpgs and this one had me quit confused for one i found it way to simple and small(in lack of a better world) and yet i wanted to play more of it one of the first things yo notis is that there isent a world to explor you are gennerally but to a short of grandia light version not only is the world map fillede witd spots for you to go to but most of them are just places to due battle in you dont get a holde lot of depth in...
Summary: Mysterious but Clever Join an epic battle between the two playable characters, Kharg and Darc. Darc is from the land of the Deimos, horrible violent creatures that care for nothing but themselves. Kharg, however, is from a much more civilised continent, and lives in Yewbell. He teams up with his lifelong friend Paulette and other friendly characters along the way. They both make more friends and playable characters as the story goes on.
Summary: In almost every way 'Arc: Twilight Of The Spirits' is perfectly adequate without ever being exceptional: the graphics are quite pleasing, the story is reasonable, some of the characters are quite interesting, the combat is definitely not the worst you'll come across, etc. 'Final Fantasy X' set the standard for console RPGs more than two years ago, but 'Arc' falls short in every respect - it's simply not as beautiful, as well produced, as involving or, indeed, as long.
Diverting enough, but only if you're a fan of console RPGs
