Arc Rise Fantasia

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • 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. A Diva from another land runs across him, and their entire world spirals out of control. Arc Rise Fantasia is a standard role playing game on the Wii. We all know there are not a lot of them on this system.

Arc Rise Fantasia Review

  • Conclusion: Arc Rise Fantasia isn’t anything that hasn’t really been done before, but that doesn’t mean that the game isn’t worthy of at the very least a look. Besides what was the last truly groundbreaking RPG? If you have a Wii and are craving an epic RPG to take up a lot of your time with a good story, plenty of action and sidequests to enjoy, then Are Rise Fantasia will definitely fit the bill.

  • Excerpt: Hallelujah! Arc Rise Fantasia (ARF) is the answer to my JRPG prayers. Lately, it has been hard to face the drought of quality console JRPGs; even the ones we did receive have been missing that little spark that makes the JRPG pop. Thankfully, I have good news: we shall be sparkless no more. ARF ignites the fire and then some.

Arc Rise Fantasia

  • Summary: Turn-based RPGs have had it rough in America lately. They were once a gaming staple, but as time has progressed, these games – with their fantastic characters on their outrageous adventures – became overrun by more action-heavy entries. Soon they were placed into a new genre altogether: JRPGs, so called because of their continued popularity in Japan.

Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii) Review

  • Summary: Overall, Arc Rise Fantasia does a decent job of mimicking its inspiration. Nearly every aspect of this game is competent, but not great. The one area where this game excels is its combat system. This is one of the deepest turn based battle systems that I've encountered. For RPG fans, that may be enough to warrant a purchase (at $40). If you're not a big fan of the genre, you won't miss much by skipping over this one.

Arc Rise Fantasia

  • Conclusion: Au final, l'absence d'Arc Rise Fantasia en Europe est étonnante à plus d'un titre : Après Tales of Symphonia, nul doute que Nintendo aurait un coup à jouer si la firme se chargeait de la localisation ou même, tout simplement, de la distribution européenne d'Arc Rise Fantasia tout en ajoutant une piste JAP au tout. Si je vous dis que le doublage US concourt pour la pire localisation jamais réalisée tous supports confondus, vous me croyez ?
  • Pros: Combats tactiques., Chara design réussi., Un petit côté Tales of.
  • Cons: Doublage US honteux., Bourré de clichés., Pas de piste JAP.

  • Conclusion: Die Bewertung von Arc Rise Fantasia ist wirklich schwierig. Das RPG von Image Epoch ist weder ein schlechtes Spiel mit wenigen positiven Eigenschaften noch ein sehr gutes Spiel mit wenigen negativen Eigenschaften. Stattdessen gibt es viele Pluspunkte, aber auch viele Minuspunkte, die man dem Titel anrechnen könnte, von denen viele noch stark subjektiv sind und je nach Spielertyp als Pro oder Kontra angesehen werden könnten.
