Quoted from Arcatera Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Arcatera reviews & previews
"Arcatera offers nine different endings to the game. This certainly increases the replay value, and should appeal to the hardened P&C adventure fans. The game's non-linearity will make the coherence of the storyline a little dubious; although it's mainly preserved through the supporting animated cut-scenes."
"Arcatera – the computer game – turns out to be a genre mix between classical 'point-and-click'-adventure and RPG, in which, according to Christoph Kabelitz, the developers tried to include the depth and complexity that appeals to RPG gamers as well as an intuitive and easy to start with interface, which looks somehow similar to the Sierra Adventure in the early 90s."
"Arcatera is billed as a 'fantasy adventure with role-play elements.' In many ways it plays like a classic adventure game. "
" First impressions are good. Arcatera has the requisite epic fantasy plot, complete with an evil satanic cult trying to overthrow the rightful Prince of your fair city."
"It's a shame, but I think Arcatera just tries too hard to be different, to the point of being confusing to play. Although the idea of a developing storyline is appealing in an age when storylines are often an afterthought in the design process, it hasn't been pulled off convincingly, which leaves players at a loss as to what to do most of the time."
