Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Whilst the RPG genre is generally one of change, Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana looked to the past for inspiration. Combat and other mechanics were simplistic, though executed to a pleasing enough degree, it’s perhaps the deep alchemy system that garnered most praise from RPG fans and kept them marching on till the end.

  • Excerpt: In April of 2006, courtesy of NIS America, the second installment in Gust’s alchemic series, Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny was released for the PlayStation 2 system.

  • Conclusion: Ok, here's the bottom line. I had a lot of fun playing Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny, I really did. Did I enjoy it as much as I did the original game? Probably not. There are a lot of nice streamlined concepts here from the item synthesizing to lack of Mana upkeep. The overworld exploring can be kind of a drag after a while and the simplified overworld doesn't help shake the linear feel.

Atelier Iris 2 ~The Azoth of Destiny~

Project COE

  • Conclusion: Atelier Iris 2 is a very enjoyable RPG for those older players out there who are a bit tired of all the 3D RPGs that get released every few months. It’s not as good as the original but offers a competent play through. If you’re a fan of the original then definitely check out Iris 2 because you’ll feel right at home. For everyone else, rent the game prior to buying and see if it’s for you.

RPG LAND
7 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Back in June 2005, NIS America brought over the latest installment in Gust’s ongoing Atelier series, entitled Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana , and has now seen fit to increase the love with its prequel, Atelier Iris 2: The Azoth of Destiny . As with nigh-every RPG ever made, the story starts out peacefully enough. Viese, one of the two main characters, is about to enter into a pact with the wood mana, Dour, thereby making her into a full-fledged alchemist.

  • Summary: It’s a decent game; but it’s only going to appeal to certain gamers. No huge problems, but there’s nothing amazing there either.

21 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Cast your minds back, back to the 16 bit era before the advent of the third dimension, for some this was the pinnacle of gaming. Many genres truly excelled running in glorious 2D and the RPG was one of them. While most publishers seem to have forgotten sweet 2D in favour of its mass market appeal brother, developer Koei have always delivered excellent games that extend beyond the restrictive reigns of the 2D realm and over the past few years have slyly pushed these...
