The Best of the Series

J. Gallen, Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: Before the PlayStation 2 era, developer Gust, responsible for the diverse Atelier series, was virtually unheard of outside Japan. It was not until Nippon Ichi Software's North American branch Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana that the developer gained some recognition, with Gust ultimately focusing on a new franchise, Ar tonelico, whose first installment on the PlayStation 2 saw foreign release in 2007.

Good game but not quite as good as the older ones.

  • Summary: I like this game and the story is intriguing and keeps me playing it but the gameplay just does not feel as smooth and as much fun as the the older games. I also miss the artwork from the older 2d games. The music is still great though.

Solid game, but the innuendo isn't all that funny

  • Summary: This is my first foray into the Ar Tonelico universe, and all in all, it's been pretty satisfying. I managed to pick up this title at a chain retailer for forty bucks (do NOT pay the ridiculous prices here), and have been generally pleased at the game itself. This is yet another JRPG brought to us by NIS, the niche publisher of this generation.

Ar Tonelico series still holds strong as one of the greats!

  • Summary: Ar Tonelico series is a rising RPG that has great storyline, lovable characters, and fun side games to keep you entertained. I've played the first 2 on PS2 and this game definitely did not disappoint with my expectations. If you're one of those hardcore RPGers who want to break away from all that Final Fantasy themed games and want something different, then you should really try this out, you won't regret this purchase.

pretty good

  • Summary: I've been a fan of the series and like them all and this one is no exception. It's a good game by Gust but I did feel like they could've use a little more time to polish the game. The new combat system is alright but I tend to do the same thing over, the music in this one is still good but is the weakest out of the trilogy.

Must try for RPG lovers

  • Summary: I would give this game 3.5 stars (if you're a guy...probably add another star...). If you enjoy RPGs in general, Qoga will definitely suck you in after playing for a couple hours. The positives are graphics (not current gen quality but nice character designs), music, real-time battle system (if you like that), optional Japanese/English voices, and the Cosmophere is quite amusing.

Good stuff.

  • Summary: I really enjoyed the game, as I did with the rest of the series, but keep in mind that the mature rating is related to the amount of innuendo.

This ambitious and well-polished JRPG has just a bit of a hollow core

D. A. Theisen, Amazon
20 March 2011
  • Summary: Though the name doesn't explicitly mention it, this is actually the third game in the Ar Tonelico series, with installments 1 and 2 on the PS2. A good deal of effort seems to have been taken to make this game accessible to all players, however, regardless of any experience with the first two. This is extremely welcomed in a genre usually loaded long-running jokes, recycled battle systems and the like.
