The RPG is masterfully crafted and dramatized in animated cutscenes. It is also replete with voice acting. There is the usual classical gameplay and tactics formula. There are, however, no classes, and the player has to decide the best thing to do in these circumstances. Jean d’Arc is well-reputed as a veritable level 5 gem.
