After years of watching videos and reading reviews, I finally decided my PS Vita needed a good role playing game and I pulled the trigger on Jeanne d'Arc. So far, I'm only a few hours but I love the interface and the graphics are really amazing. The last Level 5 game I played was Dark Cloud 2, and while that was really good, I never fully got into anything from them before. Anyone else played this little gem?
I really liked it at the time but when I got to the end game stuff I started to dislike it. The optional stuff at the end seemed like it required more grinding than actual strategy. There is also a thing that happens during the endgame that I dislike from but I won't say what it is because it's a spoiler.
Jeanne D'Arc is awesome! I've played through it a few times. It's weird because I could never get into the likes of Final Fantasy Tactics or Disgaea, I just found them too overwhelming with all their systems, but Jeanne D'Arc I found really accesible and got really into it.
Yeah, I agree, not having some games in the NA SEN store but having them in the EU is annoying. As for the game itself, I really like the cut scenes and so far all the characters are engaging.
We don't have Jeanne d'arc in the EU at all so..erm.....I can see how that could be annoying for you?
Jeanne D'Arc is one of my top ten PSP games... Probably even top five. One of the few portable games that I really got into and soaked up every last bit. Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together and Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions are also great if you are into the SRPG genre.
Jeanne D'Arc is solid.
Good story and characters, pretty standard strategy combat with a few cool features thrown in.
The learning curve might be the least steep ( lacking steepness) of any game I've played in a long time.
I had a little too much fun reading the dialogue with a crappy french accent...
Jeanne d'Arc is pretty much the only psp game I played through that entire generation. I absolutely plan to grab it again on my Vita and hopefully actually finish it this time around. And that's saying something, considering I am not generally a fan of tactics games.
I'm curious about it. I've been meaning to play more SRPGs. The only SRPG I've experienced in full is Front Mission 3. Some friends and I took turns to play scenarios. I really enjoyed it. We also played a bit of Vandal Hearts 2, which was also pretty cool. There's definitely something to be said for those kinds of games.
