Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island review (DS)
14 January 2010
Excerpt: Nearly every action costs precious time, in fact, and there are no do-overs (though you can play through the whole adventure again after the credits roll and keep any of the items that you gathered on your first run). The setup works nicely, ensuring that more ambitious players can find a decent challenge in developing their empire while younger siblings and other amateur adventurers are free to take their time enjoying other less challenging aspects of the game.
Excerpt: Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island is an off-shoot of Gust's Atelier games (which include both Atelier Iris and Mana Khemia ), which thus far have only seen releases on the PS2 and PSP in the US. Although Gust's DS offering retains much of the charm and a few of the series' core gameplay features, it also takes a completely different approach.
