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: Arc Rise Fantasia is an original rpg for the Wii gaming system. It's a combination of many rpg's before it however the meat of any rpg is the battle system, and this is where Arc Rise shines most. With many styles and strategies to dispose of your foes and over the top magic and attack animations, this rpg truly delivers fantasy over the imagination. Boss fights range from very tough to insanity and are truly rewarding once conquered.
Summary: I have played a few games like Arc Rise Fantasia and this has been the best so far. First off the game is incredibly long and is in between linear and non-linear as there are different aspects of the game that could make it both. The story line is what makes this game so great because it is very engaging and there are a lot of twists that you wouldn't expect. The game play is simple when traveling and you typically always play as L'Arc.
Summary: I won't go too much in-depth here, but to say this game if so much fun. Great anime style graphics and cutscenes. Great gameplay and battle sequences. Great game; however, voiced dialog leaves much to be desired. But don't let that deter you from this title. It's a little tricky at first to figure out, but isn't taking too long to get the hang of it as far as upgrading your character goes. Fun anime-style RPG I recommend for like $20-$30 and under for sure.
Play for the story, but stay for the battle system!

Summary: The Wii has very few RPGs as it is in its inventory and any new addition is a welcome one to the library of games for the system. Arc Rise Fantasia is a traditional JRPG that is similar in vein to the Tales of 'xxx' games that are popular recently, even down to the individual skits characters have with each other over the course of the game.
Summary: Arc Rise Fantasia is a great RPG for fans of the genre who own a Wii. The game aims to appeal to fans of old-school RPGs by providing a colorful world and cast of characters, many dungeons to conquer and a turn-based battle system. The game is lengthy, the graphics are awesome (for a Wii game) and the battle system is fun. Normal monsters are incredibly easy, but the bosses in this game are brutal and you will cheer when you defeat a tough encounter.
