Summary: I'm such a fan of Atelier! But this one is the game I like the least. The story is fun and enjoyable, and the characters are pretty neat. That said, there are several annoying things with the game. For starters, if you leave your home and go to the shop to sell an over-abundance of items, you have to have the items in your basket. So that means making SEVERAL trips between your home and shops. That might not sound so bad to you, but you have no idea...
Summary: I found Atelier Rorona to be quite enjoyable, soothing and relaxing, perfect for a weekend break or an evening after a hard day. Alchemy is fun, and as you progress into the game, each success really feels like a success. Also of note are the sprites used in conversation, Rorona has some of the most beautifully composed cleavage which will have you staring for a long long time.
Summary: Gust Corporation made itself known with the Atelier, Mana Khemia, and Ar tonelico franchises, with Nippon Ichi's American branch ultimately deciding to bring Anglophones these games starting with Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana. In 2009, the franchise debuted on the PlayStation 3 with Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland, with NIS America localizing the game the next year. How does it stack up to other games in the series?
Summary: This game made several changes that I'm not sure I like to the Atelier series yet it was still fun to play none the less. Positive Changes - Honestly I was little nervous when I heard they had moved to 3D instead of using the 2D graphics. However, In the end I found that it was mostly a positive change. They still used the cartoon pictures for conversations just as in the Mana and Iris series before them.
Fun game that is hurt by the time managing aspect.

Summary: Rorona is definitely not for everyone. If you've read any other reviews it's a good chance you've heard that before. I enjoyed it but it took me some time to get into it. It's understandable that some people do not like it. For me it was difficult to really get in the groove with it's time management. It is also creepy-anime perverted, but it's not anything you won't have seen before if you've played japanese rpgs or watched anime.
