Reviews and Problems with Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis
Showing 1-2 of 2
9 July 2008
Excerpt: Project "A9" (that is, the ninth game in the Atelier series) shows that Gust can continue to adapt and evolve, even while using their classic gameplay and graphic styles. After five separate Atelier games that Americans have never seen (Marie, Elie, Lilie, Judie, and Viorate) and three Atelier games that Americans have seen (the three "Atelier Iris" titles), "Mana Khemia" puts a whole new spin on Gust's flagship series.
Summary: Mana Khemia is, to put it politely, yet another JRPG alchemy game in the Atelier Iris series. It plays very similarly to Atelier Iris 3 , which actually works in its favor. You play as Vayne, an adorable protagonist with a slightly muddled past, and guide him through three years of school at Al-Revis academy.
