5.0 out of 5 stars Different in a good way, 4 Aug. 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arc: Twilight of the Spirits (Video Game)
Well first off im surprised to see theres a strategy guide ^^ (albeit for the american version of the game... but really i dont think there will be any differences....) Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits Official Strategy Guide

and now onto the review, i have yet to complete the damn game but of course with many RPGs the true potential of the game and the characters isnt revieled till you get creamed by the end boss.

There is a twist to this game as neither side is inherrantly evil.

Humans... using up the energy the planet and beings need, no surprise there. They are in a constant battle with the Deimos.

Deimos... the side evolved from monsters where they think humans need to be erased.

You play as Kharg and Darc, the two pictured characters in the cover [Kharg being the first protagonist and the human is the centrepiece]
There are great twists and ironies within the story and either way you end up liking one side more than the other (which is great cause near the end of the game you can choose ^~)

The gameplay takes some getting used to but in the long run is worth sticking to. It does occasionally get tedious as each move is turn based and more individual than the popular Final Fantasy series. Then again other RPGs often do and when bored it is easy to get back to the story at hand. There isnt much need to spend as much time as possible to level up untill you reach certain points (not specific i know but it means at the beginning dont waste all of your time and patience on getting Lv20 before doing any major story work) and the game has its ways of letting you know when you suck... i mean ... need to train.

Not much else can be said aside from the game being damn addicting, i only stopped playing because i had to give it back to my friend... ive ordered one of amazon and it has arrived.. now i just need the time to play it... really i mean where do the hours go...

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Jan 2009 00:48:20 GMT
uhm.. not many... mainly looking at some youtube vids on how they delete it and listening to their advice

NOTE:: yeah the endboss is hard on this game.. but all in all its fun getting to that point.
