Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland PS3 Review
18 July 2015
Excerpt: Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland is the thirteenth instalment of Gust’s Atelier series and the third and final in the Arland trilogy. Like Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori before it, the story isn’t your typical JRPG world saving fare, but is instead refreshingly a more personal character...
Excerpt: Call me crazy, but I grow weary of RPG epics. The airship, transcontinental, Inception-like plots that grow more confusing the longer you play type games. Every now and then I seek out a game that enthralls me yet doesn't stem much further beyond the core story line.
Review: Atelier Meruru - The Apprentice Of Arland (PS3)
14 July 2012
Summary: Atelier Meruru turns out to be more than I expected it to be. If you can manage to get past the slow beginning, it ends up becoming quite an addicting game with a fun alchemy and combat system. The town growing simulation is a nice feature that is sure to keep you heavily involved.
Excerpt: Gust's trilogy of "Arland" Atelier games finally comes to a close with Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland . Although the game retains much of what made the first two games so great and unique, it also manages to tidy up a lot of the previous two games' issues.
Conclusion: Overall, Atelier Meruru is an excellent game, and it should appeal to JRPG and RPG fans alike. This game is definitely the best game in the Atelier series. There are plenty of improvements over the previous entry in the series that make this game more accessible and more rewarding.
Conclusion: Atelier Meruru is rated T for Teen with ESRB descriptions of Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Partial Nudity, Suggestive Themes, and Use of Alcohol. In battle, characters smack cartoony enemies with weapons and magic, and they just disappear when defeated.
Excerpt: I recently attended E3 2012, where I had the privilege of sitting in a large indoor stadium and watching as a pleading man had his face blown off, something my fellow journalists and media responded to with raucous cheering.
