Arc The Lad Trilogy

Arc The Lad Trilogy
Arc the Lad

Arc the Lad is a tactical RPG game for the PlayStation. It was released in 1995 in Japan and North America on April 2002. Its the first game in the Arc the Lad trilogy. It was the best selling Japanese game in 1995 and was followed by two direct sequels that make up the trilogy.

Gameplay is very similar to Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre. The areas the player can move are marked by blue tiles, and when using a melee attack on an enemy, the player can attack an enemy at any side the player can reach, and a cursor will be above the enemy to let the player know that he can attack the enemy. If the player uses magic or special abilities to attack the enemy, there will be a red set of tiles that show the player the range in which the spell or attack will reach. Unlike Final Fantasy Tactics, Arc the Lad is not isometric, therefore all tiles are the same size and shape.

Here is a Gameplay video of the game.




The Game itself is very short and be beaten in about 10 hours. Though it was meant to be short. It makes a great start to a more expansive game in Arc the Lad II. The Game is set where Arc sets out to find his Father and it ends up where he must save the world by his own kind. Humans have forgotten the way of life and our killing the planet, and making the dark one rise again. The only way to save the world is to get the guardians to to look at the god in humans and allow them to hand over there power to get to the Ark.

Sound:

Some Tracks were orchestrated n pieces, which is a first in RPGs.

The game is now available on PSN for $6. A great buy if you have never gotten a change to play it on PlayStation.


The game in itself is very under rated, but one that shouldn't be Missed. Any tactile RPG fan should play this game.




Keep a Look out for the next review of the Best game in the trilogy Arc the Lad II

If the review's title is "Arc the Lad Trilogy", then shouldn't it be a single review about the trilogy as a whole?

Extremely basic review that barely covers anything. Otherwise, it's alright.
