Justice will prevail!!!,
This review is from: Arc: Twilight of the Spirits (Video Game)
I actually really love this game ^_^ I bought it originally when it first came out and then again recently as I had lost it and suddenly really wanted to play it again!
There are quite a few things wrong with Arc: ToTS... The graphics are pretty poor when you compare them to games like Final Fantasy X, the battle system is slow and uninspired, and there are no cut scenes. However, the actual story is pretty good and I liked the fact that the story swapped between Darc's group and Kharg's (though admittedly I rushed through most of Kharg's chapters to get back to Darc, who was by far the best character in the game :-) ). Although the dialogue was often quite juvenile and cheesy (the 'because we're brothers!' line has to be the cheesiest line ever heard in a video game, with 'this is the only hand I have to offer' coming in second!) I actually found this very amusing and so felt it added to the game rather than detracted from it. The contrast between Kharg and Darc's lives is great and Darc's first chapter (Awakening) and then the story from the middle of the game onwards really make it worth playing.
Make sure you have some time on your hands when you come to the final battle as it takes about an hour to defeat the enemy and then of course you have to watch the end sequence!
If you want a fast paced game that is more about the battles than the storyline then Arc: ToTS is probably not for you, but I would recommend people give this game a go as it has an interesting stroyline with some great characters in it. It could never match up to final fantasy but it's still a great game that i will play again ^_^
