This game was everything I love about RPG's and almost none of what I hate about them. First and foremost the biggest downfall, I found that the boss battles at the end of dungeons were excessivelly more challenging then the dungeons themselves. I had to back track alot to level up in order to handle most of these situations. That being said most everything else about this game was amazing loved the Arms Force system for the weapons, the character developement was way over par, and overall the game did everything well. One minor qualm however I trully wish that the costumes served a greater purpose in the game. All in all I give this game a major recommendation to all avid JRPG fans.
While I understand why the voices tick people off, but If you not going to play a game base on that. then what the point of you renting half of the hidden gems out there?
Pros of Arc Rise -weapon ability to level up -grinding isn't so hair pulling boring -A world map for a Wii Rpg that worth renting
Cons -Try to pull to much off from other RPG -Boss battles don't feel like It take much more then,attack attack,heal up, use magic, limit break, repeat till boss is dead -story isn't groundbreaking or new, but it what we all forsee in an JRPG
Great time eater,OK game play and story. worth renting I won't buy it in store or anything

Ok, so i wanted to give this game a try, seeing that most third party games on the Wii are lack luster. Im glad i tried it out via gamefly before buying it. The graphics are PS2 quality, which leads me to that the people who made this game either dont know what the Wii is capable of or they just dont care. The voice acting almost put me to sleep, and why is it out of sync with the characters mouth movements? Third grip is the battle system.... I dont need to be asked after every single action if i want to confirm that action. Does final fantasy need this? No, so why does this game need it? Its bad enough that the Wii is an underappreciated system, I just wish there were better games to play on it. Putting out games like this doesnt help nintendo out any. Ill wait for Skyward Sword thank you very much!
