Beyond our world lies that of the Elemental beings, the Arcana. These mighty spirits offer their abilities to the Maidens, those rare humans who are able to communicate with them. Long ago, our worlds were connected. However, the two worlds unexpectedly split apart, and a dimensional boundary was formed between them, separating our world from the Arcana. Seeking to harness their energy, the mysterious Mildred Avalon is trying to form a rift in the boundary and merge the worlds once more. Should her plan succeed, life on our world will never be the same again. Only the Maidens, with the help of their Arcana, can prevent her from bringing an end to all humanity.

A solid fighting game.
A really fun game but not for everyone as this is a truly Japanese game (i.e. heavy anime influence and a SNK style boss).
If you like good, difficult, fighters or anime you'll undoubtedly enjoy this game and franchise.

No title
For the most part, Arcana Heart is awesome and offers yet another avenue for fighting game enthusiasts to tread. After recently playing the robust Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the amount of bonus content included on this PS2 disc (an art gallery, a few movies, some forgettable music, etc.) seems really sparse, but at least it's something. Otherwise, a charming cast, great fight mechanics, diverse play styles and tons of depth make this a fighting game you don't want to miss. Despite its few problems, you only have to pay thirty dollars for a fantastic experience.

more great 2D goodness.
if your really want the Arcana Heart experience at home then this is the way to go, keep clear of number 2.

Not so impressed.
I play alot of 2-D fighters like SFIII and GGAC and even the recent Sengoku Basara X. The game itself feels extremely slow and choppy compared to anything else the fighting systems arn't that great and the movesets for the characters are just plain dumb mostly, personally I prefer Sengoku Basara X or even some good ol' Guilty Gear Accent Core.
