Arc the Lad II (2010) reviews and comments

Where to start with this game. Well, this game is definitely for those who enjoy the PS1 era RPGs with tons and tons of grinding. So much so, I found myself using some glitches and hacks to try to get around just how long it would take. I feel like this is caused by early on in the game, your party splits up. And while this definitely works well story wise, it causes a massive level imbalance that carries on until the end of the game. Another point of pain, is this right before the end the enemy levels skyrocket way out of proportion to how quick you are leveling. It definitely hurts the story to right at the climax have to go grind 30 levels just to able to not die for the last boss. Once you put the work in however, this game is definitely rewarding. The battle gameplay is very well polished and entertaining. It puts much more strategy into it than the usual RPG, pick your action and wait till your next turn. You'll find yourself realizing that attacking from the side or behind works well on some enemies while others it doesn't at all. Also, putting your characters in very specific formations is crucial for the last couple bosses, which by the way, are some of the most intense I've ever experienced with an RPG. Overall, this game is a gem, and should be given more recognition than it has been given. There are a few qualms that tarnish the overall game, but I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys RPG games.
