  • Conclusion: Arc Rise Fantasia is a decent game if you like the old-school JRPG format. The battle system is fun, and the story (despite pulling every cliché out of the JRPG handbook) is entertaining enough.

Arc Rise Fantasia

Family Friendly Gaming
30 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The RPG Master was not sure what to make of Arc Rise Fantasia when it came into Family Friendly Gaming. The characters have some fantastic colors to their hair, and the styles are well stylish. The main hero L'Arc has a major background that he is not aware of.

  • Excerpt: The Japanese gaming development industry is in a weird state of flux right now. Once the proud home of such AAA titles as Chrono Trigger and the epic Final Fantasy VII , critics have labeled the industry as all but dead, and void of any real new ideas.

Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
7 August 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s tough out there for a console JRPG fan this gen. Pickings are slim and releases are few and far between, so I definitely feel a sense of gratitude whenever a smaller release in the genre makes it over to the States.

5 August 2010
  • Summary: Arc Rise Fantasia is a well-build role-playing game, a turn-based adventure for the Wii imbued with clever customization and boss battles that require tactical thinking; however, the game's story, characters and setting are as unoriginal as the game mechanics are engaging.
  • Pros: Appealing Character Designs, Minor Twists Freshen Turn-Based Combat, A Boon To RPG Fans On The Wii
  • Cons: Crappy Voice Acting Torpedoes The Drama, Plot And World Mired By Anime Cliché, Monsters Feel Bland
