Not all that great, i'd advise that you ignore the hype

Summary: I was real excited when i finally got my hands on this game. perhaps its because i enjoyed final fantasy tactics so much that i found this game to be easy in every aspect imaginable. character customization is a joke; you can put on any suit of armor (but character clothing never changes its appearance), you can put on shield...for about four characters out of fourteen, and a weapon.
Summary: This game is a bittersweet mix. The good parts include compelling, beautiful cutscenes, a fun and flexible character customization system, and combat that has a lot of enjoyable elements. But the quality of the game is cut short by sub-cutscenes with meaningless, cheesy dialogue, an overly large party, a lack of plot elements, and some glaring limitations in the combat system. The cut-scenes are by far the most beautiful piece of the game.
Great graphics and storyline. Wished it was more challenging and a true epic.

Summary: I had more fun with Jeanne D'arc than I've had with other RPG's, except for Final Fantasy 3 and 7. The graphics and gameplay are fantastic, although I wished that the game was more challenging and the story a bit longer. I spent a total of 25 hours to beat the game, and after getting the hang of it, I found the levels less challenging to beat the FF series. But if you want a shorter RPG that's a lot of fun, Jeanne D'arc's a good one. It exceeded my expectations.
Summary: when i first picked this game up, it was a blast. the graphics are pretty, battle grounds are very detailed, and adding a fantasy twist to a part of history anyone who took high school history should be familiar with added to the charm of this game. but, several hours into the game, i was getting annoyed with jeanne's constant complaints about how everyone is a coward and such.
Summary: Jeanne D'Arc never tries too hard, and that's what I found ultimately disappointing about the title. The story, to begin with, never quite knows what it wants to do with itself. It begins by squinting at history and putting an interesting new fantasy spin on the old tale of St. Joan, but then decides to forget all that and obsess over a generic fantasy story replete with magic rocks, elves, and demons.
