Great game!

  • Summary: This was a pretty good installment of the Atelier series. I loved the story, the characters, and the new building your kingdom part of it. My only nitpick is that it's easy to screw up your ending if you aren't careful, and that after you complete the game, you do NOT get to keep your money like in the other Atelier games. But these few gripes didn't stop me from replaying the game three times in a single month ^.

The tutorials are pretty good, though even with them and some experience ...

  • Summary: So, I've sampled some earlier games from Gust: Atelier Iris, Atelier Iris 2, Mana Khemia 2, and played through all of Mana Khemia. As other reviews state, the main draw of this game is the item creation system (alchemy). The game focuses a lot on item creation and material gathering, which is used to create items with different attributes to complete quest, optimize equipment for battling, etc.

User Review

  • Summary: Just finished this crafting/simulation RPG game. A few years after Totori becomes a famous alchemist, Totori left Arland and become an alchemist in the Kingdom of Lars. There she met the princess, Meruru. Meruru, while being a princess of Arls, she is more interested in becoming an alchemist than being a royalty. In 6 years, Arland and Arls will merge into one country. And before that, Just finished this crafting/simulation RPG game.

Multiple runs for trophies, lot of sidequests

  • Summary: Atelier Meruru is a nice RPG with loads of side quests, trophies, alchemy and and the usual time limit. While it is pretty solid, some of the time it got worn out. Alchemy is needed to progress through the game. Items are needed to complete a lot of quests and build friendship. The friendship will help unlock trophies and get your allies to levels needed to trigger events for trophies. The quests get you cash and popularity.

Love this game

  • Summary: this game is both fun and challenging. Though i may not go PS4. I am a RPG player, so i naturally would enjoy this game. I would recommend this to an RPG or Anime player. I would not recommend this game to gamers who play shooters all day. this would put them to sleep.

My favorite Atelier Game

S. Dawson, Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: I loved Meruru. It had fun goals of building up the kingdom and the alchemy was a lot more user friendly. It also carried over the homunculi, which was a fun addition introduced in the first Arland game. It has great replayability.

Great gameplay; very unfortunate limitations.

  • Summary: As a crafting nut, this game appealed to me immediately, and I wasn't disappointed. If you're into that sort of thing, you're likely to enjoy at least part of this game quite a bit... initially, in any case. The ingredient gathering is made enjoyable by a fun and simple battle system. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes irritating to synthesize many items that require a few levels of crafted ingredients. The examples that immediately comes to mind are flour and salt.
