A rollercoaster of frustration. Recently, I have been seeing a lot of JRPG's coming to the market. Summer is a good time to dive into an engrossing RPG and with...

Interesting world and history ; Battles can be fun early on

Boss battles are frustrating ; Bland graphics ; Horrible voice acting ; Story gets too confusing and convoluted

Recently, I have been seeing a lot of JRPG’s coming to the market. Summer is a good time to dive into an engrossing RPG and with that being said, Arc Rise Fantasia steps up to the plate. Arc Rise Fantasia is a JRPG from the guys Marvelous Entertainment...

This console generation hasn't seen too many quality Japanese RPGs, or many JRPGs in general. Arc Rise Fantasia is here to remedy that and provide a traditional RPG for Wii owners. If you can look past some of the very obvious problems, you'll find a...

Colorful presentation with great music; very fun battle system; a lengthy adventure that should hold over any RPG fans for a while

Atrocious voice acting and a terrible translation; forgettable story and characters

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...

Flawed? Sure. Is Arc Rise Fantasia the best RPG I've played? Far from it. However, Arc Rise Fantasia captures the heart and soul of the JRPG so wonderfully that it will be easy enough to overlook the flaws. It won't win any awards, but I guarantee it...

Arc Rise Fantasia opens on a fleet of airships effortlessly cutting through skies, high above the moonlit earth below. Knights clad in heavy, full armor patrol the decks, watching for signs of danger.

Par for the course JRPG.

Interesting character designs, supports classic controller

Unresponsive controls, annoying voice acting, no combat rhythm, muddy visuals

Arc Rise Fantasia isn't a bad game, but it's an unfortunate victim of the "two steps forward, one step back" rule. As a result, the good moments do manage to outweigh the not so good, which is a lot more than can be said for many games that hit the...

Review: Arc Rise Fantasia (Nintendo Wii)

 

Let's see how this game stacks up.

Arc Rise Fantasia comes with the the usual JRPG trimmings (both good and bad), it lasts a decent amount of time without dragging excessively, and the battle system is actually fun to play through. However, it doesn’t break any new ground, hits a number...

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....

Short of a few hints and shortcuts spread throughout the web, there really aren't any cheats available for Arc Rise Fantasia. Why not? Why can't I have a cheat for unlimited action points? How about the cheat I've been asking for in every RPG I've...

If you're in the market for a traditional JRPG with plenty of battles, consider Arc Rise: Fantasia from Imageepoch and Ignition. It doesn't exactly push the genre forwards (who said that's needed anyway though, right?), and even though I still consider...

Looking for a solid JRPG this summer? This isn't a bad choice at all. For Wii owners, or JRPG fans, this makes a fine addition to your library.

A difficult game proves not worth the effort.

Combat has a few twists on the standard turn-based system. Your actions are limited by a number of points that can be distributed between your three characters to attack, move, and use spells or items. Tactical movement helps you avoid having your...
