There's something about turn-based strategy games that works particularly well on portable systems, and JEANNE D'ARC is no exception. With more than 40 well-designed and beautiful environments to play, 14 playable characters, and fully voiced animated cut scenes, Jeanne D'Arc deserves to become a classic. It strikes the right balance between being challenging enough for strategy buffs but not overwhelming players with too many unit types, menus, and skills.

The only time Jeanne D'Arc gets tedious is when you have to "level up" characters between battles by fighting in a series of random encounters. Unfortunately, if you've saved just before a major confrontation but find that your army isn't strong enough, there's no way of exiting back to the map screen -- so essentially you're stuck. If you're patient and willing to spend the extra time, however, Jeanne D'Arc is a strategy title with rich rewards – even if the plot will give your history teacher a fit.
