Lord of the Copycats

  • Excerpt: The best way to describe Lord of Arcana is a smorgasbord of great games all thrown into one. You're a great Slayer that joins the Slayers Guild to hunt monsters either by yourself or with four friends. Ok, so that sounds a little familiar right? What about collecting parts from the enemies you kill to forge new weapon, armor, and magic items? Alright, now let's take it a step further.

Lord of Arcana

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Not to open up the whole "Games are..." argument, but I've recently become fascinated with the psychology behind why people play games. Look at Facebook games, for example. They're not the more engaging of games, but there's something at play at keeps people (me included) coming back for more. The same rings true for most games, though some, despite best efforts, have a harder time presenting players with a reason to return. Case in point, Lord of Arcana .

Lord of Arcana (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
11 March 2011
  • Excerpt: After the debacle (or sheer genius) that was Deadly Premonition , it seemed that Access Games was destined to fall into obscurity, or set to become one of the greatest cult developers to ever hit the industry. While DP garnered some very unfavorable reviews, it holds such an amazing campy quality that it’s hard to not just sit back and admire the blend of inappropriate music, phenomenally bad dialogue, and the greatest supporting character to grace an open-world game,...

  • Excerpt: Most gamers have heard of a franchise that has exploded across Japan known as Monster Hunter Portable, a game with popularity that rivals the monolithic Pokémon and is most likely to blame for the PSP being Japan's best-selling console of 2010. Lord of Arcana is not Monster Hunter. Though, it does try awfully hard to be Monster Hunter.

  • Conclusion: Lord of Arcana is one of those games that you probably either love or hate. If you like this specific JRPG genre, you should definitely give it a look. But if you don't, there isn't anything about Lord of Arcana that will change your mind.

  • Conclusion: Lord of Arcana is great for Phantasy Star Online or Monster Hunter fans, but those without patience should stay away.
  • Pros: Quality item crafting and customization, fantastic boss battles.
  • Cons: Incredibly grindy, very repetitive, and awkward targeting.

Lord of Arcana review

Gamedot
6 March 2011
  • Conclusion: But simply talking about Lord of Arcana doesn’t really do it justice; you really have to give it a shot and stick at it for a while and don’t let the start put you off. It does takes a while to get into, but when you do, you will be well on your way to conquering the monsters of Horodyn and becoming the Lord of Arcana!
  • Pros: A lot of game play in this tiny PSP package. Generally fun in battles. Lots to do.
  • Cons: Takes a long while to get into. Some battles with the same monsters over and over can be very off putting. Dodging is hard when you're mid-combo
