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.

First Atelier game, probably the last

  • Summary: When this game first came out there were only 5 star reviews and the professional reviews on other sites were giving it high scores as well, so I figured I'd give this series a try since I'd always heard great things but never tried one. After a few hours of playing this game however, I got bored and put it away.

Best for younger teens

  • Summary: I loved Atelier Iris 1, 2 & 3 on the ps2. (I played Eternal Mana twice to the end.) I enjoyed Mana Khemia 1, and Mana Khemia 2 just a little less. I even managed to get halfway through Ar Tonelico, where the alchemy was a total let down. (the story wasn't all that great either) Atelier Rorona isn't bad. It's just not challenging.

Ultimately not enough depth

  • Summary: I love crafting games. Period. Harvest Moon was a huge favorite and I always get absorbed into the crafting component of other games like the Elder Scrolls and Final Fantasy series. Those games had enough storyline to keep me interested in the characters and explain the *why* behind everything I was doing. I bought this game because I'm tired of the violence dominating the complex, popular games that capture my attention.

Nice Idea But Lacks Gameplay

  • Summary: I'm a fan of good gaming just as the next person so I'm pretty open to a wide range of rpgs. I've played games anywhere ranging from 1st person shooter to rpgs like the final fantasy type to the harvest moon. Ever since I've purchased the ps3, games like harvest moon have taken a back seat so I thought I'd try out this game. Due to the lack of gameplay even at the price I purchased which was $40 wasn't worth it.

Curious. I must be playing a different game.

  • Summary: I see plenty of reviews out there on this game. A lot of buzzwords thrown around. For each one, I shake my head in utter dismay. Let me start from the beginning. I actually enjoyed Mana Khemia. I also enjoyed the Atelier Iris series quite a bit. Didn't have any issues with the alchemy or the feel of those games, for one reason: the alchemy was secondary to the true nature of the game which was the RPG/exploration/battle aspects.

A perfunctory addition to the Atelier series

Adrian Jenkins "southerndudeman", Amazon

  • Summary: I must confess that I was eagerly awaiting the newest title in the "Atelier" series to grace our shores. Although this is the 11th title in the series, this is only the 5th that I've played (I think only 6 or 7 of them have actually come to America). And while the game does nothing really wrong, it does little right as well. Atelier Rorona follows the exploits of a young alchemist-in-training.

Atelier Rorona: Alchemy with crashes!

  • Excerpt: "Atelier Rorona Atelier Rorona was Gust's first Playstation 3 game and the first proper Atelier game (ignoring the Atelier Iris series, which were more stereotypical JRPGs, compared to their predecessors) to be released in Europe. This game focusses on the titular character, Rorona, who is forced by her master Astrid into taking over their alchemy workshop just as its about to be shut down by the kingdom. Rorona is therefore tasked to complete orders ...

you need patience for this game

  • Excerpt: im a huge fan of any game that takes many hours to master so i jumped at the chance to buy this one. gorgeous graphics and not too many long conversations make gameplay fairly fast and enjoyable. as the story runs on a time system you will find ach chapter can take many hours to master. intially the game doesnt give too much direction but after a few attempts you will find yourself thoroughly engaged.
  • Pros: Easy To Learn, Gameplay, Graphics

  • Summary: Wie so viele japanische Rollenspiele, so genießt auch die „Ateliers“ Reihe im europäischen Gebiet eher ein Nischendasein, weshalb viele Ableger erst gar nicht die Reise außerhalb Japans angetreten haben. Wie aber so viele japanische Nischenspiele in der letzten Zeit, so hat es auch der erste PS3-Ableger der Reihe mittlerweile nach Deutschland geschafft. In „Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland“ schlüpft man dabei in die Rolle der jungen Alchemistin Rorona.
