Summary: The game itself so far seems like a more Gothic, "Devil May Cry-esque" verson of Monster Hunter in terms of actual gameplay and style, allowing you to wave around large weapons at very large monsters, take on side-missions and make shiny goods. The biggest let-down though is the camera, as only the D-pad can turn it, leaving you at the mercy of locking on and hoping.
Summary: Its great the game is fun but can get abit repetative but im stuck and just kinda gave up with it its nice in all dissapointed only because the box had a big dent on it which i wasnt pleased to see.
A very nice version of Monster Hunter from Square Enix.

Summary: As I've said, the game is very similar to the play style of Monster Hunter. So, expect things like doing quests, killing giant monsters, getting better equipment and other related RPG aspects. Since this game is made by the famous developers of the Final Fantasy series, there is more elements of story telling in this game compared to Monster Hunter. As a whole, it's a fun game to play and I would recommend it if you're a fan of Monster Hunter or like playing RPG's.
Summary: it's been a long time sind squeenix have released a game worth paying full dosh for, and it looks like it will still be a long time coming. Lord of Arcana is bland and generic, mixing the poor character modelling of squeenix's psp legacy with themes from just about every game they've ever made. Even the battle theme is ripped nigh note for note from Lord of Vermillion. Althoough hearing a bit of nobuo is no bad thing.
Lord of Arcana, a decent addition to the RPG genre???

Summary: When I saw the screens of this game online I asked myself would it be any good. Upon receiving the game and playing the first few levels I was acutally quite impressed with the way it's been put together and the level of difficulty each stage represents after the defeat of the first boss (the earlier stages are quite straightforward and give u a fraction of the games true difficulty level). So how does it stack up against Monster Hunter?
Excerpt: Lord of Arcana è, a mio parere, una scopiazzatura di Monster Hunter, ma non potrà mai raggiungerlo, in quanto a qualità. Ma non è male, mi piace lo stesso! Dopo aver creato il proprio personaggio (se sei uomo ti andrà bene, se sei donna somiglierai comunq ...
Pros: Mostri strani, particolari
Cons: Ogni combattimento ti trasporta nell'arena, alla lunga diventa noioso questo fatto
Excerpt: Se trata de un juego de rol y la verdad que es uno de mis preferidos y es un juego que posee lo mejor que se puede esperar de un juego. Por ejemplo en los gráficos para ser un juego de la PSP puedo deciros que están bastante bien, ya que está perfectamente diseñado tanto la animación del juego como la visión que hay de los personajes, creo que ése es uno de los puntos fuerte de éste juego.
