  • Review Score:8.8

    Filled with personality, charm, humour and enough innuendo to make a cheerleader blush.

    Thousand Arms is the first of its kind to cross the Pacific. An RPG with Dating Sim features. Sadly it couldn't have came at a worse time of the year in 1999. Thousand Arms came out shortly after RPG giants Lunar : SSSC ... Read Full Review

    A touch of RPG and dash of anime...

    Thousand Arms is an anime inspired RPG, with connotations of the Japanese culture. Being a fan of Japanese/Korean anime and manga (and some chinese ones as well), this game appealed to some extent for me. Anyone who love... Read Full Review

    A chaming RPG

    Thousand Arms is a good RPG that came out at the wrong time, 1999. Lunar:SSSC and FF8 was already out and overshadowed Thousand Arms. The game has a good amount of dialog for it time (12 hours), and has an anime styled c... Read Full Review

    Thousand Arms had been, and still is, a game ahead of its time. No matter how modernistic you are, you cannot deny it.

    Thousand Arms takes you back to the old gaming engines when Jazz Jackrabbit had been master of its era on the PC. Quite simply, Thousand Arms is a very solid, very entertaining, and very unique abstract of ideas; one mig... Read Full Review

    The only traditional console rpg/dating sim out there! The quirky and fun writing made for a worthwhile experience.

    *Gameplay and Storyline (As well as info on difficulty level, controls, and length of game..) First I'll start with some bad. The controls feel pretty loose, your character can either walk too slow but run too fast. L... Read Full Review

    the game consists of fighting and dating women. Well, it's fun to play, specially the dating part. But some lines the women used are repeated all over again, and you might already memorized how to answer it. The graphic... Read Full Review

    One of the best RPGs I've ever played, hands down.

    This game uses a classic turn-based battle system and mixes it up with some original ideas. The unique dating system plays brilliantly into the storyline with 9 beautiful ladies to enhance your gameplay with. The differe... Read Full Review

    Original and awesome.

    This was actually the first real RPG i played so it might be a bit biased :P Graphics 9\10 : I thought the graphics where some of the best the ps1 had to offer. The battle scenes and the cut scenes look gorgeous ... Read Full Review

    Hey, it's pretty good.

    I've always had a thing for quirky RPGs. They're different from your mainstream--usually providing something new--and, on the average, more fun. This is no exception. Thousand Arms is a great game only marred by its h... Read Full Review
