Review: "Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland" (PS3)
8 July 2012
Excerpt: Seit Ende Mai können Gamer-Girls wieder in die Rolle eines süßen, weiblichen Anime Charakters schlüpfen und mit “Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland” die dreiteilige Arland Saga zu einem Abschluss bringen.
Cons: Karge Hintergründe und Umgebungen, Zu viele banale Dialoge, Kaum Story, Missionen und Aufträge enorm monoton, Sehr karges Kampfsystem, Fast schon zu mädchenhaft, Nerviger Soundtrack, Optisch nicht der Hit
