Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk
2 September 2013
Summary: It’s a well-known fact that the gaming industry is sorely lacking in strong female leads, with the game shelf at the local Best Buy sometimes looking like a page torn from “Who’s Who Among Expressionless White Guys.” Thing is, developers are definitely taking some steps in the right direction, with the March 5 th release of Square Enix’s Tomb Raider showing that women in games can be portrayed as more than a pair of boobs carrying a gun.

Summary: Atelier Ayesha is a fun, yet simplistic entry in the long running franchise. The story is solid and the characters are well developed if you invest your time in them. The alchemy, while watered down, is still fun, and exploring the world is a pleasant experience. The combat works perfectly and moves at a quick pace, keeping you from getting bored.
Conclusion: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptors of Fantasy Violence, Suggestive Themes, and Use of Tobacco and Alcohol. In battle you hit cartoony monsters with weapons and magic, and they just disappear when defeated. Most of the suggestive themes and use of alcohol and tobacco are referred to in text only, although some of the female characters wear slightly revealing clothes.

Summary: Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk veers off the standard JRPG path of offering a typical save-the-world-from-mass-genocide plot line, and instead focuses on a smaller scale adventure surrounding a gentle apothecary and her desire to rescue her sister. The game is quite a visual treat for such a niche title, and the soundtrack is top notch.
Excerpt: Tout comme les précédents volets de la série, Atelier Ayesha met en évidence une approche très différente des RPG japonais habituels, puisque son scénario ne se base nullement sur le concept du shônen, mais celui du shôjo. En conséquence, il ne faudra pas s'attendre à des hordes de combats et un objectif menant à sauver le monde, puisque notre héroïne – Ayesha Altugle – plutôt naïve, cherchera surtout à parcourir le monde à la recherche de sa sœur mystérieusement...
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk (PS3) - Review

Excerpt: After three games in Arland it's time for the Atelier series to move to a new venue. The “Dusk” series has begun, but we'll have to wait a year or two before we start getting into cameos again. Atelier Ayesha 's release has been plagued by odd production and localization decisions, but does the game underneath all that make these travails worthwhile?
