Summary: I do have to say that there were some nice plot twists to the game. However, the characters sometime came off as a little flat or just plain annoying. If there's nothing else its a solid game that should pass the time.
Summary: This is the first time i've played a game where i've capped out the game time meter long before finishing. I reached 99 hours 2 dungeons before the end game. Besides those 2 there was still a fair amount of extra end game content to be completed afterwards. The combat style of a shared points meter is one of my favorite ways to add strategy to a normally boring turn based game. This game did it perfectly.
Summary: The true test of a story is whether it takes you along for a ride that you don't want to end. This story is it!!!! Sorry no details as a famous fictional character once said; "I hate spoilers".
Summary: I gotta say this was very new to me by the way its played but it does stand out as a great team work game unfornately... They failed to do the voice acting right and the story was medicore and could have been better but on the bright side **SPOILER ALERT** L'arc does the same thing that Emil did in Tales of symphonia dawn of the new world but however he manages to stay alive and walk with ryfia which is great... Emil.... You never see him again...
Summary: Story 10/10 The story in arc rise fantasia has some degree of clishe jrpg but has a lot of origonal stuff too. Most storylines in games fail to really grab me, and my favorite is still the console fire emblem story, but ARF is a close second. It gets good especialy about 1/4 of the way through, with an incredible and unpredictible twist. in all the game probably takes around 65 hours for the average player, and worth every second.
Summary: I am a big fan of JRPGs, but what is typically wrong with one of them is typically wrong with all of them. The story is an interesting spin on already existing storylines. Pretty sure I've played this storyline in pther games at least 3 times already. The music is absolutely great, but its a shame i frequently had to mute the TV because of the terrible voice acting (which I sadly got used to). The battle system is very, very addicting.
Summary: I'll keep this simple. I'm a fan of RPGs and I've been playing them for 20 years or so now. It isn't often that a great game like this shows up and it is a real gem for the fans. I enjoyed it all the way through and found it to be challenging and great fun. The voice dialog is questionable in the first few hours of the game, but improves as you progress. Don't let that discourage you from picking it up.
