Arcus Odyssey Video:
Speaking of differences, the characters also have radically different standard attacks. The swordsman fires close-range shock waves with his sword, the archer shoots arrows that rebound off walls, the wizard blasts fireballs that have infinite range, and the whip-toting warrior-maiden lashes out at enemies with both a straight attack and a 360 degree twirl (no infinite throwing axes here!). The way the characters are designed to have different attacks is truly wonderful and makes every replay feel different. Your experience with Erin and her powerful (but slow) whip will be totally different from your game with Diane, in which you'll learn to bank arrows off walls in order to bag monsters from safety.
In Arcus Odyssey, you begin the most difficult journey of your life: the quest for the Sword of Light. The land of Arcus is being overrun by evil, and you are the only one who can annihilate the threat and restore peace. Choose from four different noble warriors, each with unique abilities and attributes. You can take on the enemy with either your impressive arsenal of weapons, or you can keep your distance and use magic to cast spells. The game is made up of eight challenging quests, that when completed will reveal the story behind the quest for the Sword of Light. If you're feeling overwhelmed, you can have a friend join your party and really put the hurt on the enemy. In Arcus Odyssey, the fate of the world is in your capable hands.
