Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!

I finished Luminous Arc for the DS last night. It was a nice, scaled down SRPG - a welcome change from the over complicated norm - but by the time I reached somewhere around chapter 20, I found myself just rushing to wrap things up.

The story was overly predictable, and the main character was way too whiny about things. The ending was kinda lame, too. The gameplay, on the other hand, was expertly balanced! I only found myself level grinding in maybe one or two spots around the half way point. And at right about 25 hours for 25 chapters, I'd say the pacing was excellent as well.

Overall, I can't say I loved the game... but I definitely liked it! Maybe a good first SRPG for someone new to the genre!
