Conclusion: Still, like I said, the achievements are easy and the game does increase in value if you have a buddy to grind with. All in all, this isn't a terrible game, and certainly not a bad one for a somewhat quick boost in Gamerscore. The only problem is that there are much better Diablo clones out XBox Live Arcade that are far less boring.
Excerpt: Do you like dungeon style RPGs like Phantasy Star, Diablo, and Dungeon Siege? Well...you might like Arkadian Warriors. This new Action RPG on the Xbox Live Arcade (and PC) seems to have an interesting premise, but there is little here to warrant that much fun. There was very little thought put into the game and it turns out to be the most generic RPG in recent memory.
Summary: This game is really terrible. I don’t know what the developers were thinking. I was really excited for this game prior to actually playing it, but I was quickly let down. It would take a lot to convince me to play a sequel in the event one is ever published. What I’m trying to say here is quite simple: Don’t even consider buying “Arkadian Warriors”. Just wait for something better. It wont be difficult to find something more enjoyable than this.

Excerpt: While there's a certain attraction to the Arkadian Warrior 's gameplay, the visuals aren't likely to impress. The game is technically clean and looks great, especially for a downloadable title. However, there's something oddly unsettling about the game's visual style, which sort of looks like it is going for a super-deformed style, yet without the overacted "cuteness." Characters are short and stubby with big heads, which sort of makes them look like bobble heads.
