Summary: Very fun. The emphasis on item creation is not overwhelming but i can see how some people may have difficulty. Unless you're dumb as rocks, you should be fine just mess with all the abilities as they are unlocked to understand them. The storyline is engaging and if you enjoy modern anime then you shouldn't feel too out of place since there are common anime tropes in it. If you enjoy turn based jrpg style games this is right up your alley.
Turn-taking, story driven game with side quests, multiple endings

Summary: Atelier Ayesha is a cute, turn-taking, story driven game. There are monsters lurking, TONS of side quests, multiple endings and a lot of synthesis. Take Ayesha through the story to find her missing sister, Nio. The battle system is turn-taking style, so you have plenty of time to decide your next move. Use the rear attack to gain an advantage and use the special skills of Ayesha's allies. Controls and navigation were pretty easy to learn.
Summary: It took a few hours to get used to the game changes coming from Atelier Meruru, but so far it's been fun. I like the quest system better because it feels more like an actual option than the one in Meruru. Not only that, but there isn't as much pressure to spend days as efficiently as Meruru, so it feels more fun. I've also really been enjoying the main quest so far, it's really interesting.
Summary: I really like this game. its a great change of pace, and still has a bit of challenge in it. but its a very relaxing challenge (time management and crafting stuff). the only other Atelier game I played was Rorona, which I thought was good but was easy to mess up the endings requirements (I am unsure if the rest of the Arland series is like that) so I was happy this game was a lot simpler and a lot less to "worry" about. The graphics are very nice and anime-like.
Summary: I started playing and immediately liked it. There wasn't much of a story (ok so main character's sister is missing) but that didn't matter. Game play was much better than other games I've played, like Final Fantasy XIII. In FF13 all you do during battles is keep hitting the X button. This game wasn't like that. I liked researching new items to synthesize and new ways of creating the same products. Now for the part that makes me hate the game....
Summary: These games just keep getting better. In a sea of poorly made products, mainly from American developers out to make a quick buck, games like Atelier Ayesha are rarities that come only once in a while and must be enjoyed by all video game connoisseurs. Atelier Ayesha is a special game even among Atelier games. For one, the game's colour palette is darker than the other games, giving the game a more sombre feel to it.
Summary: I haven't played any of the previous titles, but this game is amazing! The battle system is fun. I have to warn you though, it does require a lot of strategy. The story is unforgettable. The graphics are unforgettable. They are very crisp and sharp. The characters are very compelling. I recommend this game, weather you have played the previous titles or not.
