Summary: The game itself can be a little bit slow at times unless you love to read through a lot of text but yet with the push of a button several times you can easily evade that. I had never played a game in this series and was surprised how much I really enjoyed it. This game is for alchemy buffs and anime/manga art lovers. Beautiful graphics and a good story make a really cute, fun, and overall an enjoyable game.
Summary: Such a great game! They took all the annoyances of the Arland series out of their equation and improved overall gameplay. No more irritating characters and has a more serious ambiance all around. Much easier to deal with the time constraints in this one than it's predecessors.
Summary: Great game, great girl, great endings, only thing I hate is the time based mechanic which ruins my explorer soul!!! (loves to get to the last corner of a virtual world!). This mechanic forces you to re-play the game a few times if you want to experience it all.
Summary: Just finished this great game. This is my favourite Atelier series for now. It starts with the story of Ayesha, who lives away from the city. One day her sister, Nio, disappeared suddenly when gathering herbs inside a ruin. A several years later, Ayesha go to the ruin and then found Nio within the glowing flowers. After that Ayesha met an alchemist called Keith who tells her that Alchemy is the only way to save her sister. So the journey of Ayesha starts.
Summary: I just platinum-ed this game today. It is worth playing- but I feel like it's a bit easy. Ayesha doesn't seem to have much emotion. She wants to find her sister- which is reasonable. She is very agreeable, and nice. She gets worried about things that she doesn't need to worry about, and seems preoccupied with the fact that she is weak because she is a girl. Keith and Linca are what really salvage the game. Linca is funny on her own.
Summary: This game is completely addictive. If it weren't for the time limit imposed by the game of three in-game years, I'd spend the entire time synthesizing and gathering stuff and trying to max out the item stats. The story-line is pretty good, the graphics are pretty, and the character designs are adorable. The voices suit the characters, but sometimes they do get annoying, so you may want to turn the voices down a little.
Summary: I am not finished with the game yet so just some quick notes to people familiar with the series: What i like: - Same proven formula, with some tweaks - overall the game feels more balanced than other titles. events, synthing, exploring, combat, gathering all feel more equal - events, quests and goals are well cataloged in the menu with updates. (there is a major exception though) - story is a little more interesting than usual.
