Arc Rise Fantasia 

 

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. So that is something of note.

Arc Rise Fantasia starts out with a cinema movie that is absolutely awesome. From there it goes into the game, and the details drop drastically. In fact that first area with green grass, and green trees is one of the worst the RPG Master has seen in a modern role playing game. As the player moves through the storyline and gets to see different areas the graphics do improve. The real bad side to Arc Rise Fantasia visually is many of the female characters. The enticement to lust is pretty high in this Wii game. Ultimately it hurts Arc Rise Fantasia.

The music is good in Arc Rise Fantasia. The RPG Master really enjoyed the various sound tracks throughout this home console game. The voice acting was good in some parts and not so good in others. At the worst times it sounded like voice actors reading lines. At the best times there was a nice amount of emotion in the lines. During battles and after battles certain lines are repeated. This gets very old very quickly. There are also some minor language issues with Arc Rise Fantasia.

Those that play Arc Rise Fantasia will find quite a few side missions to play as well as a lengthy story. Only one player can play Arc Rise Fantasia at a time. This is how most role playing games are though. Veteran role playing gamers will find they must grind in certain parts of Arc Rise Fantasia in order to progress to the next section. As long as you enjoy the game play grinding is not an issue.

Most role playing games easily move from one player to another when command selections are made while on battle screens. Arc Rise Fantasia is a little different, and this threw the RPG Master at first. Adaptation was not difficult, but it remained annoying. The battle system is very limited and frustrated this reviewer as well. This made the grinding even more boring than it needed to be. The reason players need to grind in Arc Rise Fantasia is because the bosses are insanely difficult. Arc Rise Fantasia does not have a good flow in this regard. The RPG Master would easily dismantle enemies in an area, and get totally trashed by the boss of the area.

Arc Rise Fantasia is the strangest world the RPG Master has ever encountered. There are all these different countries of different religious beliefs. They have different gods that they worship. Many are willing to kill in the name of their beliefs. Revenge, hate, anger, arrogance and more are some of the lessons players can learn from Arc Rise Fantasia. There is also mention of evolution in Arc Rise Fantasia.
