Summary: I have no clue why I am addicited to this game right now. Honestly, this game is a super old game, to date, and the fact that I'm choosing newer games over it is something. Ar Tonelico has an interesting battle style, a lot like Mana Khemia, and a story line that is hard to pass up. I can't really say too much about it, because at this time, I'm not even sure why this has possessed me so much.
Conclusion: This game is great for anyone who likes turn-based RPGs. The world, characters, and concepts are original. The music and artwork are amazing. It's just an all-around great game.
Pros: Ar tonelico is a traditional turn-based RPG. The way battles are set up are slightly different, however. Your chosen Reyvateil has the ability to charge her Song Magic for as long as she has MP. If you continue to fuel her MP, she could , in theory, defeat a boss in a single shot. The addition of the Reyvateils makes the battle a bit more rewarding.
Cons: The voice acting in the game could have been better. As you go through the game the voices won't bother you as much but some characters just don't fit with their voices at first.
Summary: Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia isn't your typical RPG. NIS and Gust always bring us amaing RPG titles, but this one is a breath of life into the dull, cliche genres of role-playing games. The story takes place in the world of Sol Ciel where the tower of Ar Tonelico exists and is inhabited by two races: Humans and Reyvateil. Reyvateils are an artificial race who were designed for the purpose of maintaining the tower of Ar Tonelico.
