Summary: Going into this i was looking for anohter rpg to occupy my time being a fan of anyhting with nis america on it i might have been suckered into this. The game overall isn't bad it has decent graphics enjoyable music and enjoyable character interaction.

Ar Tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel - PS3 Video Game

Summary: The game looks great and is a good game after you play awhile and get some experience. But the beginning learning curve is a little too dificult for my taste. You just barely get into the game and you're forced into a very challanging boss battle, which if you don't win, you have to start the game over. Sounds like some of the early video games of 15 to 20 years ago.
Summary: I own the entire trilogy of Ar Tonelico but truthfully, the first two games were better with the first being the best. The second had a really great plot going on with lovable characters as well as the first. The characters in the 3rd were disappointingly boring and dry. The main guy in the 3rd isn't as romantic as the first or second. There are no maps included in this one. Dunno why, but there were maps in the 1st/2nd game.
Summary: (Please ignore my star ratings on this item, they are not relevant because I haven't played yet ... but Amazon doesn't allow you to supply a comment without a rating, so I picked 3 out of 5 for a "middle of the road" score). I ordered this item here from Amazon. The item description doesn't say so, but the item I received was actually region 2 (Europe) not region 1 (North America).
Summary: I really wanted to love this game and part of the time I did. However, the decent story and fun character development are ruined with what feels like unfinished gameplay. Battle System/Area Maps- The battles are boring and basically broken. While the basic idea is good (the girl in the party sings and you have to sync your attacks with the higher notes which come up,) your character has a basic 1-2-3 combo attack, with no flexibility.
Summary: This game is really peculiar. The story starts like every typical J-rpg: Pretty unoriginal set-up with a boring plot and yet, as you progress through the game the plot gets more and more interesting and less cliché. The combat system is average; not boring or awesome. It won't surprise you but it works. The graphics are the biggest downside. It looks like a ps2 game. Nothing more to say, bad graphics, bad animations.
Summary: The battle system was lacking, and the "stripping" aspect of the game was quite questionable as well. The story and character development were decent, but again could have been better. overall I feel this game was rushed, but there were a few pleasant references to the characters and events from the previous games.
Excerpt: Ar Tonelico Qoga is the third game in Gust's Ar Tonelico series, based around a fictional world where humanity and an species of artificial lifeforms called Reyvatails (who can use magic in the form of song) on towers suspended above the planet, which is now uninhabitable. As with the second game, knowledge of the previous games is not necessary, though it does help with some of the gamesterminology and some of the games mechanics (though these are picked up easily).
Excerpt: Le 3ème volet de la saga est tout simplement passable au regard des capacités de la PS3. Graphismes moyen, histoire attachante mais sans être exceptionnelle. Le fan service est trop présent et met le joueur quelques fois mal à l'aise (certaines héroînes sont très jeunes. A noter toutefois une bande son exceptionnelle.
Excerpt: Fan de jrpg ou de mangas/animes,tout simplement ce jeu vous plaira certainement. Pour les autres si vous avez tendance à trouver ces oeuvres japonaises plutôt "niaises", vous n'apprécierez pas sans doute plusieurs aspects du jeu (design, scénario).
