One of the few recent games that's worth playing

  • Conclusion: This game is probably not for everyone has it has a very strong anime feel, 2D graphics, and the story, while very well done, is classical and full of cliches. People which are at least a little into Japanese culture and RPGs which are looking for a fun and epic game to play should absolutely not miss this unique game, which is in my eyes, like it's predecessor, a masterpiece.
  • Pros: Atelier Iris 2 : Azoth of Destiny is the second game in the Atelier Iris series, a Japanese RPG trilogy for the Playstation 2. I was very impressed by the first game, Atelier Iris : Eternal Mana, as it provided me an amazing experience (see my review for more details). Because I was so pleased by the first game I started to look for it's sequel, but this game was hard to find. When I eventually found a copy I bought it right away and my expectations about this game we...
  • Cons: The only bad thing I'd say about this game is that, once you finished it, there is few reasons to replay it, unless you want to go through the whole adventure a second time. However this is a common issues in RPGs, so it's not really something to complain about. While the first game had some actual additional quests, all this game has to offer is some challenging battles at Dragon's Den (some kind of arena), unless I've missed something.

  • Summary: The story line was wonderful and very interesting. The game play is great for strategists. Not the best graphics in the world. This is more of a game for people with wide imaginations.

  • Summary: Another fabulous addition to the Atelier series by GUST, this is the second Atelier Iris game. Despite sharing the Iris name, the games are all stand alone, and all of them are definitely worth checking out. Azoth of Destiny is a charming, straight-forward RPG that is a lot of fun.

  • Excerpt: "Atelier Iris series have always been simple yet interesting game to play, always full of color, filled with funny jokes and unique Alchemy ability.

In this paradise like world, humans and mana have prospered in harmony for centuries and humans have ...
  • Pros: Quite addictive, easy to play yet fun and won't bore players easily

A brilliant RPG experience.

  • Summary: In the year 2004 Gust released Atelier Iris : Eternal Mana for the Ps2. This game was the first of the Atelier Iris series to have been released in America despite the series long run and popularity in Japan. Its arrival in America and good response from both the costumer and critics gathered enough funds for Gust to release it in Europe and to do the same for Atelier Iris 2 : The Azoth of Destiny (and later Atelier Iris 3 : Grand Phantasm) And for that I'm grateful.

  • Excerpt: "I love RPGs but didn;'t want something as complicated or demanding as the FF series and found this to be the perfect alternative. It was very enjoyable (I'm replaying it at the moment) and was long enough to keep me quiet for 30+ hours. There were never parts where I felt I had to give up as I didn't know what to do or it was too hard, which I have found in other rpgs, with endearing characters and a great storyline. I would recommend this to anyone ...
  • Pros: fun, not too easy or hard, great story and characters
  • Cons: It ended eventually

A brilliant second instalment

  • Summary: Having loved Atelier Iris I couldn't wait to play this game. Apart from the story line and the characters it is very similar to the first, but as I have often played a part 2 game because I loved part 1 and been very disappointed because everything I liked in part 1 has been over-tweaked or even dropped completely, this was fine by me.
