Summary: I'm over 40 and I had a lot of fun with this game. I just wish there had been more variation in the graphics and choices possible. I found one androginous person in the story to be a very thoughtful choice to add to the story line.
Summary: I wonder who the psychologist who said that children must be rewarded even when failing to learn as to not to have an emotional scar for life. I find that kids today aren't any smarter, or more intelligent. Just a lot more snottier, more rude, and extremely lazy. Just like our protagonist Annie, a lazy girl who dreams of riches not by working, but by marrying.
Summary: I love this game. I ended up playing it all the way through three times. The battles are not that great, and kind of seem tacked on for no good reason. But if you enjoyed the synthesizing in other Atelier games, you will enjoy this, too. Just be warned that you might have to play it a few times to get the best ending.
