Reviews and Problems with Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland
Showing 1-7 of 7
review related to later games in the Atelier series, and a focused look at the game as a standalone via gameplay mechanics
16 September 2014
Summary: At the time of writing, I have played Mana Khemia, sampled some Atelier Iris games and Mana Khemia 2, and played Atelier Ayesha and Meruru. Of the Atelier series, I have played them out of order, starting with Meruru (third of Arland trilogy), Ayesha (first of Dusk series), and now Totori (2nd of Arland).
Summary: If you are an RPG fan interested in playing one of the Playstation 3's Atelier games, go with Ayesha instead. This game is the second in the first Atelier trilogy for PS3, as is often recommended as a good starting point for new players due to the unpolished nature of the first game. Atelier Ayesha is better in every way, featuring better item crafting, a better battle system, better music, and better crafting. The unstructured nature of Totori is also a turn off.
Summary: The best part about this game is the non-stressful gameplay, at least for me. Most of the games nowdays seem to try to stress the player out, sometimes to the point of the extreme (Demon Souls etc). This game, however, is almost relaxing and soothing experience, at least in the first half or so.
Summary: I bought this one and the 1st game for my boyfriend for christmas, it had gotten okay reviews and I know he likes anime and cute things like this. my boyfriend and I was however quite unhappy with how dull and boring everything was. What this game does have however is being really really cute, the japanese voices are spot on and even some of the english voices are reasonably cute too (which is rare!
