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.

  • Summary: Good game. I love how interesting the system is and the music is great. But I do wish the game was longer, it was not long enough for my taste.

Best of the series

Anonymous "Anonymous", Amazon

  • 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.

First time playing Atelier game

  • 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!

Atelier Meruru review

Sirus222, Amazon
23 July 2012
  • Summary: Atelier Meruru is a great way to end the trilogy. It got a light hearted story that I enjoyed, the combat system is improved and actually fun to me, the alchemy system is fantastic as the previous games, and development mechanic that it has is very rewarding compared to ranking up in Atelier Totori.It's overall structure is also pretty open ended, though it's a bit more structured when compared to Atelier Totori. Do note that this game has a time mechanic so yeah.

Finale to the Alchemist of Arland trilogy is the most polished game in the series.

Dentolux, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Atelier Meruru is the third and final instalment of The Alchemist of Arland series, a franchise which is fairly popular back in Japan, but not as well known on these shores. After enjoying the game's predecessors, Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori, I was eager to snap up the trilogy's finale - even if it meant handing in my man card.

Atelier Meruru: Nation Building with an Alchemic Twist

  • Excerpt: "Atelier Meruru is the third and final instalment of The Alchemist of Arland series, a franchise which is fairly popular back in Japan, but not as well known on these shores. After enjoying the game’s predecessors, Atelier Rorona and Atelier Totori, I was eager to snap up the trilogy’s finale – even if it meant handing in my man card. Fun as the games may be it’s hard to come across as macho when you spend your weekends playing as a pink haired girl ...
  • Pros: Better interface than the earlier Atelier games, lots of quests/endings to unlock .
  • Cons: Not all the cut scenes are voiced, simplistic combat can get dull .
