Massive Disappointment For The Ar Series
27 October 2014
Summary: I was a huge fan of the first two Ar Tonelico games released in America. A turn-based JRPG that's all futuristic, but with crafting elements similar to Atelier Iris and a dating sim thing going on? Hell yeah. But this one? Oh no. The animations are bleh, the graphics are meh, the dialogue is pretty terrible in general as are the characters, and really, the only redeeming feature is the dating sim aspect, which is still somewhat hit and miss.
Summary: I bought this game used for $25 a few months ago and I played it for maybe a few hours. Months later, I had completely forgotten about it until I saw it as a recommendation. Do not buy it here, as it is $34, which is vastly over-priced. Track it down at Gamestop. Ar Tonelico is not by any means a great game. The graphics and story are decent, but the battles are boring, and the actual gameplay is awkward and tedious. Moving around on the screen is very linear.
Summary: This game is very disappointing. I really enjoyed the first two games because of the combat system, which was both different and interesting, a combination that is difficult to find. The system has been completely revamped, and not for the better. By changing the system to real time and requiring the player to mash one button over and over, the focus has gone from the party's mages to the front line, which makes it the same as just about every other game.
Summary: Moin auch, zuerstmal sei gesagt das das Spiel ein Muss ist wenn man die Storry aus Teil 1 wissen will wie alles ausgeht. Aber mehr ist das spiel wirklich nicht *seufts* nach dem wirklich hervorragendem Teil 1 und dem (auch gut gelungenen) Teil 2 hab ich mich so gefreut auf dieses spiel und dan kommt so was raus. Hatten die Entwickler mal wider keine Zeit un das spiel vernünftig fertig zu machen??? ich glaub mal nein.
