It's longer than Rorona and it's a lot of fun. In a world of radidly decreasing game legnth, this one offers real vaule for money. Some of the changes from Rorona take some getting used too. Everything now takes time, from combat to gathering. As you advance the game, shortcuts will become available, and the time limit will look a lot less daunting.
Some of the old favourites return along with some new faces, the multiple endings are all there, some funny, some quite moving. If you like the style of the Atelier games, this is a must have.
