The Ar Tonelico series have always been great games and the finale is no different.
You play as a young man named Aoto, Aoto is a hot-head with a strong sense of duty, kind of a typical character archetype but by no means a stereotype. He soon commits himself to protecting a girl named Saki and help her find her way home, along the way he meets Finnel, and soon finds a greater journey in store. Although the plot is cliche at first glance, it is actually quite deep, and although this game is the ending of a trilogy it is still enjoyable without knowledge of the other two (Although I would highly recommend playing the first two for returning characters and a broader world)

The gameplay is of the real time RPG variant, you directly control characters and press buttons to attack in real time. Yyour party consists of 3 vanguards, which are basically the defenders, and a Reyvatail (a girl who can use magic) the vanguards protect the reyvatail so she can build up Burst and use stronger magic by purging, keep in mind that purging causes the Reyvatail to take off clothes ultimately down to their underwear, this is quite a strange mechanic that can only be attributed to crazy japanese game design, the game also features a lot of sexual innuendos so if you are considering buying this as a gift or for a child keep this in mind.

The main innovation this game features is the ability to "dive" into a heroine, diving brings you into that heroine's cosmosphere, a strange world that is akin to a human subconscious. These strange worlds very cool and give the player a much deeper insight into the heroines mind.

I absolutely adore Ar Tonelico II so it took a while to adjust expectations down for Qoga. There are still many good bits here and there but it resembles a pizza someone dropped on the dirty floor. It still looks good and you can eat it but the grime really turns you off.

The hymns are sublime as always and some pieces are the best in the entire series, the BGM is either good or at least functional, even though I prefer the other games in this regard. That's where my praise ends though. The gameplay remains the JRPG paired with Visual Novel thing, so I'm fine with the static character shots over a background and textboxes approach. The 3D character models during normal gameplay though look awfully dated on the PS3 and the character (or rather costume) design is just horrible. As a JRPG fan I have a high tolerance and the other games weren't tame either but when one character runs around with different-colored stockings and nipple tassels while another character essentially just wears bits of masking tape on her chest it just gets stupid.

Speaking of characters, that's another low point. The main character is completely insufferable and while Lyner was a barely alive cardboard-cutout and Croix a bit of a wet blanket, at least they were inoffensive. Aoto on the other hand seems to be a amalgamation of the worst possible anime hero cliches the writers could come up with, always going on an on about being a guy, the man, protecting the female death robots dishing out 100 times the damage he does. And he constantly fails at protecting them too. There is a surprising amount of cut scene stupidity and it usually revolves around Aoto; A giant killer robot? No problem. An old guy choking him? Whoops, hands tied.

I would have probably given this game 5 stars as I like it a lot but I will try to be as objective as possible as people have different tastes and this game is not perfect. This is Gust's (which are probably more famous for the Atelier series) first action rpg in the Ar Tonelico series, which started on ps2 with two installments. The story is your typical Jrpg with some technical terms specific to this series, and which are explained in the game. The characters for the most part are likeable but most dialogue lines are not voiced in English but they are in Japanese and they take place in 2D visual-novel like fashion and there are a lot to read in this game.
At first I played a little of this game then left it to play another game, which seemed more appealing at the time. Many months later, after I played and loved Ar Nosurge Ode to an Unborn Star, I decided to give this game another chance and I was pleassantly surprised. The game battles has a gimmick which may apeal to some as it involves stripping your heroines if you fulfill certain conditions during battles but the best thing I like about the game are exploring the heroines emotions by diving into their psyches and exploring them and romancing them. The game has a very good replayability value as there are three routes you can take and you don't have to start the game from the very beginning if you don't want to; you just need to be at a certain point and make separate save files. Another thing I find satisfying is item creation especially equipment and experiencing their perfomance in battles. The 3D character models seem a bit outdated but I got used to them and they grew on me. If you have a ps3 and want an action Jrpg with good likeable characters, nice music, psyche exploration, multiple romancing routes and an action battle system, I recommend giving this game a chance
