Reviews and Problems with Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island
Showing 1-2 of 2
Fun But Short!
16 November 2010
Summary: Let me just start by saying that I am relatively new to the DS. I used to play mostly RPGs on the PlayStation, PS2, and now PS3, as well as on the PC. Atelier Annie got my attention because it focused not on saving the world or fighting the entire game, but on crafting items, gathering ingredients, and building/running an island resort. Not having played any of the previous Atelier games, this concept sounded new and fun.
Summary: I have played every Atelier game that has been released stateside. Loved Atelier Iris. "Meh" on Atelier Iris 2. Liked Atelier Iris 3. You can imagine me being excited to see Atelier Annie get released, even if I wasn't too pleased at it being released on DS. I've come to accept that the DS is really the last refuge for those from another era...those who liked games back before graphics became the driving force.
