Atelier Meruru Review

GameSpot
12 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The Arland trilogy of Japanese anime-flavored role-playing games ends with a whimper in Atelier Meruru: The Apprentice of Arland. This last addition to the family bogs down the formula with a number of extras that make the game more annoying than entertaining. While the addictive alchemy formulas that sit at the heart of the gameplay have been held over for a repeat performance, everything else has been hit hard by an obnoxious spoiled brat of a title character, a...
  • Pros: Involved crafting system with loads of alchemy recipes
  • Cons: Extremely annoying title character, Sexualized outfits on very young female protagonists, Bland campaign hobbled by timed quests

  • Excerpt: Atelier Meruru is the last title in the Alchemist of Arland trilogy, and it finishes the series on a high note. It won’t appeal to everyone, but those who want a light-hearted take on the standard RPG will find it a very enjoyable adventure.
  • Pros: sharp, detailed graphics; kingdom building and crafting are fun
  • Cons: voice acting isn’t very good; poor item management in the inventory

  • Conclusion: Fans of the trilogy like me will hate to see it end, but it was good to know that the trilogy did indeed end with a bang. Atelier Meruru packed an in-depth character roster of unique personalities than span all three games, which bring about unique and interesting moments and combat scenarios. Newcomers to the series can easily jump into this title and enjoy it, however for those wanting the total experience, I would recommend picking up the first two titles.

Atelier Meruru (PS3) - Review

  • Excerpt: The Atelier Arland series has come to a close with its third and final game: Atelier Meruru The Apprentice of Arland . Don't worry alchemy fans; as I'm sure you know Gust has already announced their next Atelier game, it just won't be based in Arland. So does Atelier's " Return of the Jedi ” continue the upwards trend in quality that it had from the last games, or is this more of a “ Phantom Menace ” scenario?

  • Conclusion: Entwickler GUST hat den Dreh raus und verfeinert das Spielprinzip von „Atelier Totori“ zu einem unterhaltsamen und vor allem lustigen Abenteuer. Durch zahlreichen Aufgaben, die man jederzeit zu absolvieren hat, hat man immer neue Ziele vor Augen und auf der Weltkarte gibt es durch die vielen kleinen Abschnitte immer wieder etwas Neues zu entdecken.
