Enchanted Arms review

Ice Queens, short skirts and token gay guys... is this an RPG or a teen soap opera?

But, we're going to have to end on a bum note. Sorry. Our gripe this time? Graphics. Considering Arms was built from the ground up on 360, the eye-candy is decidedly low rent. It's pretty-ish in places, but we return to the fact that it's no Final Fantasy or Oblivion.

On the whole though, while the environments and characters are bright, colourful and detailed, and it's good to see more of a Manga/Japanese influence going on, there's nothing here that couldn't have been done - at a stretch - on Xbox.

Above: The longer the shadow, the greater the drama. That's the rule, kids
