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.
Summary: Supposed to be the last of the 'arland' trilogy, and overall this is a good game. It is a somewhat open world with a lot of different choices when it comes to development projects, most which give some kind of concrete rewards. Your homs (helpers) are very versatile and can gather meteriel or synthesize depending on which one you want to do less of. Combat is similar to the others, pretty straightforward and very dependent on alchemy and consumable items.
Summary: We bought the game after reading the reviews here on Amazon and it is quite good. I haven't finsihed the game yet but I will certainly play the game again as soon as I am done, because I haven't explored all the aspects of this game. The only so-so about this game is that there is SOOOO MUCH talking between the ladies... :) Try it!
