Expert Review

PSX Extreme
12 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Sometimes, it's sad to see the old classic style of RPGs disappearing; the traditional turn-based battle format fused with a linear - yet entertaining - adventure. But you could always turn to Nippon Ichi in the last generation to deliver throwback RPG (or strategy) experiences with a twist of enhancement and new-age upgrading.

Third Time's Almost A Charm

  • Conclusion: Atelier Iris 3 's biggest problem is just that it doesn't have any glaring mistakes. Instead, the game is so painfully mediocre that it's a struggle to keep going, not because you're hating the game, but because you're just plain bored.

Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm Review

GameSpot
1 June 2007
  • Summary: Atelier Iris 3 is a by-the-numbers role-playing game that exudes a lot of charm but little else.
  • Pros: Characters and dialogue are nutty and fun, timed dungeon exploration adds immediacy
  • Cons: The main story is unfulfilling and unmemorable, disjointed, tedious quest structure, same old turn-based combat offers nothing we haven't seen before

  • Conclusion: Odin Sphere has really changed the way we look at sprite based games. It really rewrote the book. While Iris 3 is indeed a nice game to look at, it’s extremely dated by today’s standards. The sprites have far too few animations in them and most of the backgrounds and environments aren’t interactive.

RPG LAND

  • Excerpt: Every once in a while, a game will come along that shatters the fundamental beliefs we hold dear, destroying all sense of logic and reason and transcending the limits of entertainment, creating an entirely new, unique, breathtaking experience that leaves one weak in the knees when one even attempts to fathom its boundless nature.

Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm PS2 Review

DarkZero
3 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Ever since Tolkien let his epic saga loose on the world, man and boy has sought to recreate the spine tingling feeling of reading his books. Whether it was pen and paper role playing systems such as Dungeons and Dragons and Warhammer, or video games like Ultima or Warcraft the intent was the same; try and let the player experience first hand what Lord of the Rings told in third person.
