The past week or so, I've had a lot to say about Arcadias no Ikusahime (The Warrior Princess of Arcadias). I've praised the art style and music, and have taken an in-depth look at the gameplay. But even after all that, there's still much more to say about a game that is just so enjoyable to play.
Going into Arcadias no Ikusahime (The Warrior Princess of Arcadias) I expected two things: 1) A beautiful-looking game and 2) gameplay like that of an old school side-scrolling brawler. What I didn’t expect was having to control an army in real time while I did it.
Earlier this week we took a look at the stunning visual beauty of the backgrounds and enemy sprites of Arcadias no Ikusahime (The Warrior Princess of Arcadias). Of course, visuals are only half of the presentation package. Thankfully, Arcadias no Ikusahime has a quality soundtrack to match.
I admit, I am one of those who is constantly annoyed that, constrained only by the limits of our imagination, we continually produce “realistic” looking games that have a color palette dominated by browns, grays, and blacks. So I am ecstatic whenever a game like Arcadias no Ikusahime comes along.
