This turn based tactical RPG is a lot of fun. There's really not another RPG like it on the XBOX and it is definitely worth picking up.
this game was the sadest game ever
this game is the worst game ever. i would recommend something like fall out or morrowind.
Buy it for the Story
When I first bought this game, I was expecting a decent online mode with plenty of people to challenge. i was wrong... There are people on the leaderboard with 1 win! What I'm trying to say is, if you buy this game, don't expect to play online. Though since I could never find an online match, I played the story mode. The story mode is surprisingly very good! The graphics are decent, the battle system is very original and strategic, and the plotline is very interesting. The characters are pretty unique, and have personalities of their own. Beside from the main story characters, you can create "Golems", or magical creatures to help you out in combat. There are plenty of golems to find, buy, and make, as well as upgrades and weapons for the main characters. Unfortunately there isn't any downloadable content since this game isn't listed on the Xbox marketplace(don't worry there is still achievements) Well basically, buy this game if you want a unique rpg with a great storyline.
Worth playing through to the end.
I admit I was a bit turned off by the fact that this game was turn-based. But, as I got through the storyline I fell in love with the characters in the game. The down-side is when players encounter bosses throughout the game they have to spend hours training to level high enough to stand a chance against them. The Ice Queen is not exception--the main characters have to be above level 60 to beat her. Again, hours of training will give gamers the only chance of surviving the Ice Queen's first battle in her Ice Castle. I highly recommend stocking up on items before any boss battle. This game is extremely hard for casual gamers, because of the countless hours of training. Overall, I wish there was a sequel of this game. It's completely worth buying, but players just need to have patience when playing this game. It is frustrating at times, since every move you make triggers a battle. But, players can use that to their advantage to skill up and grow stronger. It's worth finishing.
The creators of this game clearly took steps to attempt to break the mold. The characters have inventive personalities, some more bright than others. Even the character design is show cased well in one or two characters, but as for the rest they are carbon copies we have all seen before. The game play can be entertaining, but this is short lived and quickly becomes repetitive. The stroyline is a forced attempt at conflict, and while predictable has moments where you believe they simply added a twist for the sake of a twist. In many ways this is a bad, and I stress bad, clone of a final fantasy platform. Some of the characters, monsters, or encounters will have you saying I have seen this before...because you have, if you played any of the FF series. Graphically it can be attractive, and other times it can seem like everything is covered in a thin layer of plastic wrap. Over all, not a game I would buy knowing what I do now.
Enchanted Arms is a waste of money and time.
I don't know where to start with how awful this game is! Character design was off the wall, they had interesting style with one or two characters but the rest looked like crap. The texture they chose for the whole character model was one that you would find on a metal christmas ornament, everything seemed to have a shiny embossed feel which made they characters seem like living action figures instead of people. The voice acting was really off, the inflections were random and made listening to the dialogue annoying. The Battle system was a terrible attempt at grid map play. Character "customization" was limited to stats and a weapon, with the Golems being limited to their name as customization. The Golems are a poor excuse for not having a good party system from the get go. most games you can play solo and fear no evil, until the story is ready for characters to join in. Also the jump between different groups of characters isn't transitional at all, its very abrupt. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone. ANYONE.
Must Have RPG
I am so amazed at how this game is. It's so breathtaking, how all the visuals and graphics look (I just got my X-Box a couple of days ago) and I like how all of the characters have their own different, unique personality, like Matorosa or whatever his name is. The Battle engine is pretty good, but sometimes gets a tad aggravating when the floor color matches the grid color. The achievements are pretty easy to obtain, all you have to do is play the game! I already have 3 achievements, and my gamerscore is over 200. It's a start, I guess. The story is one of the best. I'm a die hard RPG Fan, and have played almost all of the best hits for the PS2, and a few for the Wii, this one might have the best story. At first, everything seemed so calm and peaceful, but when terror struck, I didn't see it coming! If you're an RPG fan like me, or are looking for some easy achievement points to get a nice GamerScore, check out this game. It'll be worth ever penny.
For a RPG gamer with a sense of humor.
Let me start by saying I am an avid RPG gamer, from final fantasy 1 through current. I got this game for christmas 2 years ago and didn't think much of it when I got it, but it really grew on me. The dialogue is so awkward at times its hilarious, but the narrative is actually pretty good, the battle system is solid and consistent. The amount of items you can carry at a time is a set back, as is the drastic increase of difficulty at a few stages of the game, but if you want a 20 to 30 hour ligth hearted solid RPG this is well worth it for your 5.00 ;).
This game is very underrated.
This game is very underrated because people fall to beleive its to hard. Guess what? ever heard of grinding, thats what they give you the option of fighting with lots of opponents, the amount of golems they give you, the storyline is amazing. this game is very hard to understand from my point of veiw but how i would some up this game is. if ur a hardcore RPG fan, Get this game you will not be dissapointed.
What more could you ask for
I am fan of RPG's as far back as the phrase was written. I was a little unsure of this game at first because of the grid pattern fighting system,because other than fire emblem I have been really turned off by most,but this game nailed it so even those who shy from this type of fighting could like it. The story,gameplay,visuals and even the personalities are easy to appreciate.The creators of this game managed to find a way to pull you in and never let you go.Kinda of like Makota would do to Toya if he had a chance(lol). I guess it comes down to this.Me being a casual gamer.I started this game and never played another game until I made it to the end of this game.I say that because I play so many games but just for an hour here and a there.Constantly waiting to pulled into the games world.But enchanted pulled me in from the moment I realized what I had been missing from staynig away from grid based RPG's. One last note.This game will always keep you informed of what to do,and where to go.The user friendliness of this game is second to none.
