Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Alcohol Reference, Mild Language, Violence

Parents will want to approach Twilight of the Spirits with caution. The story line involving the dangers of prejudice is a noble one, but there is more than a bit of bad language littered throughout the narrative. None of the language is extreme, but it is there—with a surprising amount of regularity.

Strategy RPG fans will certainly want to pick the game up. It's not the most difficult strategy RPG on the market by any stretch, but this is such a niche genre that gamers who like these kinds of games have to support them so that more come out. Despite the flaws, it's still a fairly engaging game. 

Gamers in general will probably get even more out of the title. It's quite accessible for a game in this genre, making it a fine entry point for those who are unfamiliar with strategy RPGs. There aren't any multi-tiered job systems or anything of that nature to bog the player down—it's just move and attack, basically. 

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers won't have anything to worry about. While much of the game is voice acted, each scene also features subtitles of everything that's being said.
