Summary: I am addicted to this series! The battle system, the dive system, the music , story,characters, art... you name it they have it! You just fall in love and really connect with the characters. A definite buy!!
Summary: But It`s a decent j-rpg, I never had a chance to play Ar Tornelico 1 since I did`nt come to Europe? but it`s definiately some sort of spiritual descendant of the Atelier series... I have some complaints, first, like stated in the title, the localization for this game is very bad, and in some parts it seems very hastily done, or, this game really is doujin material, to begin with, meaning, everything you read don`t make 100% sense at times, + that it sometimes makes...
Summary: ar tonelico II - melody of metafalica what an odd game this is. lots of conversation between the characters, which, unfortunately, leaves you even more confused than you were in the first place! after forty+ hours of play I still know no more than i did when i started - total confusion as to what is going on and why.
Summary: When i bought this game i was really only expecting a decent story i could play through so it was a pleasant surprise when i found i actually got pretty addicted to the way this game works. The battle system is different in the way that you mainly focus on powering up spells of mass destruction used by your magic users.
Summary: A big ole V sign to the PS3, X-Box and every other console I can't afford right now. The PS2 still has some magic left in it and Ar Tonelico: Melody of Metafalica is a prime example. This looks and feels very much like a part of the Atelier Iris and Mana Khemia family apart from the battle system, which I'll get onto in a moment.
