Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm is like an old friend and has retained some traits from its childhood, but nonetheless meeting up with a buddy after a considerable time can leave things feeling different to what they were, because, like it or not, things change in life. This third entry in the Atelier Iris series retains the wonderful alchemy system of the previous two games, its lovely art style and all round approachable simplicity, but apart from this, the game is very...

  • Conclusion: Overall, while tame by today’s standards, Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm is still a thoroughly enjoyable JRPG. It probably won’t convert those who jumped on board the RGP ship in the last couple of years, but it’ll no doubt entice long time fans of the genre with its old-school, charmingly simplistic offerings.

Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm review (PS2)

HonestGamers
28 June 2007
  • Excerpt: If you spend too much time aimlessly running around an alterworld, you’ll get zapped back to town before accomplishing what you set out to do. Same thing if you get into too many fights against tough foes. If you’re able to beat them in the first two turns of battle, you won’t be penalized any time, but a lot of tougher enemies are capable of lasting longer than that.

  • Summary: Nicht alle Änderungen müssen gut sein, und auch Nachfolger müssen nicht immer besser sein als ihre Vorgänger. Ich bin mit „Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm“ nicht so richtig warm geworden. Wenn ich mich an ein Rollenspiel setze, möchte ich Teil einer neuen Welt sein, frei meine Abenteuer erleben. Aufgrund der statischen Missionsstruktur erinnert mich der Gang zur Gilde an meinen Weg zum Arbeitsplatz: Mission erledigen, Gegenstand abliefern, Feierabend.
  • Pros: Nette Sprachausgabe, Solides Kampfsystem, Niedliche Optik …
  • Cons: … die leider nicht mehr zeitgemäß ist, Viel Laufarbeit, Zu leicht, Keine deutschen Texte, Quest-System wirkt aufgesetzt

  • Excerpt: Reprenant la formule alchimique des deux premiers opus, non sans y avoir ajouté quelques éléments secrets, Gust nous a transmuté ses deux premiers épisodes en un troisième segment toujours aussi joli, frais et naïf. Mais la naïveté a-t'elle encore sa place de nos jours, surtout quand elle sert simplement un univers et non un scénario ?

  • Conclusion: In fin dei conti… In definitiva, Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm non è niente di diverso da quello che ci aspettavamo: un gioco di ruolo senza infamia e senza lode, bravo nello sfoggiare un battle sistem funzionale (anche se non il massimo dell’innovazione) ed un’esplorazione dei vari dungeon veloce e mai troppo impegnativa, unendo il tutto ad un uso dell’alchimia sì ridimensionato rispetto al passato, ma ancora vitale per il proseguio dell’avventura.
  • Pros: Fantastici luoghi da esplorare, Gameplay ormai collaudato, Tante missioni secondarie da intraprendere...
  • Cons: ...che però uccidono la trama principale, Struttura di base estremamente ripetitiva, Tutto in inglese (anche se di facile comprensione)
