Luminous Arc (Nintendo DS, 2007)
About this product
|Garden Children are trained to protect the citizens in Luminous Arc from the witches and monsters that return with the appearance of God. Players take the role of Alph, a member of the Garden Children, as he adventures through many battles and quests with his brother and other members of the organization. Gamers become comfortable with the controls by completing 19 tutorials, and then explore several fantasy environments on a linear path towards their ultimate goal. Battles are played out on turn-based grids, and gamers can use either the stylus or D-pad to execute their moves. Each character has their own special ability, and when the party has a good relationship, they can increase their accuracy and defense by standing close to one another on the field. When players are in a town, they can interact with the locals, purchase items, and visit the library. Luminous Arc may be played alone or with a friend in competitive online action.|

Luminous Arc is worth it
this is one of the best games i have played in a long time, i have been playing RPG games my entire life from Alundra to Zelda, and this is in the top 10 for me.

I saw a new game was coming out called "Luminous Arc 2" that looked like fun, but I needed to play the first one first.<br><br>RPGs are really my thing and I've really come to enjoy tactical ones.<br><br>I found there to be much to be desired from this game, but even the predictable plot and pretty art work makes it overall a fun game to play.

Luminous Arc, Simply
I'm not one for turn based strategies, and this is no exception. With the exception of actual voice overs, this game is bland and bleek. The learning curve takes time, and the isometric system is a bad representation of three-demensional engineering.<br><br>Rating: Typical.
