Pretty good except for the TEXT
11 March 2013
Summary: So far, I've enjoyed the game. The characters are fun and real. The battles are fun and interactive. Story is a little slow, and I don't care much for the time limit and that days pass while collecting items. The main problem I have is THE TEXT IS TOO SMALL!! I don't know whether it's my tv or the game, but text reading is kinda a big thing in RPGs. Even if you get close to the screen, it's so hard to read!!!!
Atelier Ayesha: Alchemist of Dusk is a decent game at best

Summary: I finally completed the game with the standard ending... I was a little disappointed as the game inferred that the 'time limit' (Year 4 Month 4) was void after completing the final objective (saving your sister) giving you freedom to complete all the gritty character boss battles that unlocks trophies. Turns out the time limit still stands and I didn't make a new save file just after completing the final game quest.
Summary: I've played all the PS3 Atelier titles now and this is my least favourite (apart from Rorona; we can chock that up to first try experimentation) First things first: on its own merits its a good game. Good battle system, nice little story (Bit cloying as always but this is a Gust hallmark) and the synthesis system remains excellent.
It has nice looking characters and decent enough music but it lacks any real depth to make it a classic

Summary: I bought this game as I had been wanting to play a decent JRPG on the PS3 as I have yet to play any good one. I have never heard of this franchise but while its nothing special Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk is a decent game and while I'm not sure if i can recommend it. There are some nice looking charaters and the music is nice and sweet and the combatt is pretty cool. Overall i'd give a three out of five which means it ok.
Summary: Gerade in der noch aktuellen Konsolengeneration gab es verstärkt den Trend dahin gehend, das aus erfolgreichen Spielen gleich ein ganzes Franchise mit in regelmäßigen Abständen erscheinenden neuen Ablegern geschaffen wurde. Das kam nicht bei allen Spielern gut an, denn nicht wenige kritisieren nach wie vor, das dadurch Innovationen auf der Strecke bleiben und das gesamte Medium darunter leidet.
Excerpt: La serie "Atelier", sviluppata da GUST, è una saga di giochi JRPG poco famosa dalle nostre parti, quasi sconosciuta, ma un fan del genere come me non si poteva certo far scappare il nuovo capitolo di questa serie, Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk. Questo gioco per certi versi non si distacca molto dai suoi predecessori, ma si può comunque dire che c'è stato un miglioramente in alcuni campi ed inoltre comincio col dire che la trama non è il fulcro che sorregge questo...
Pros: Gameplay - Divertente - Esplorazione - Crafting - Sistema calendario
Cons: Localizzazione solo inglese/giapponese - Storia poco emozionante - Ritmo di gioco lento
Excerpt: Cherchant à se différencier de la trilogie Arland, Atelier Ayesha apporte de nombreuses améliorations au niveau de son gameplay. Le système d'alchimie a malheureusement perdu de sa complexité et de ses riches possibilités en raison d'une simplification qui risque de déplaire aux fans habituels, mais qui permettra aux nouveaux venus de s¿accommoder d'une approche assez unique.
