  • Conclusion: If you're a sucker for a quirky RPG released by NIS then there's no doubt you have already checked Ar tonelico out. The game offers a lot of personality (insert perverted "dive" joke here), a few interesting gameplay gimmicks, and some inspired events. Unfortunately the awkwardly paced 45 hour adventure leaves a lot to be desired in the end. Things just lack the overall polish that one might expect and in the end Ar tonelico resides firmly in rental territory.

  • Excerpt: A stock but solid role-playing game (RPG), Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia isn't going to win and graphic design awards, but the game does exude personality like many games like it -- even the prettier ones -- don't. Follow?

  • Excerpt: opens with an attack on the city of Platina, one of the highest points of the tower of Ar Tonelico where the protagonist Lyner lives and works as a knight. In the world of Ar Tonelico, magic is cast and controlled with songs and hymns by a race of beings called Reyvateils, who have lived with humans for a long time. Attacks from monsters known as viruses are rather commonplace.

  • Excerpt: La série des Atelier iris en étant déjà à son troisième épisode, Gust se devait de trouver une solution pour remplir ses caisses entre deux opus de sa saga fétiche. Et quelle meilleure idée que de lancer une nouvelle franchise basée sur les mêmes mécanismes que les Atelier tout en proposant de nouvelles idées ? Comme quoi, la genèse d'un jeu vidéo peut parfois nous sembler aussi limpide et claire que l'eau d'une rivière.
