I normally excuse the lack of an engaging story in Atelier games due to its addictive and fulfilling gameplay mechanics, irresistable music, likeable characters and humorous dialouge. However, in this particular installment, I felt that the story did not take backseat as usual and it really grabbed me and surprised me. It made me feel that there is one worthwhile goal I need to achieve throughout the game!
The music of the final boss is really one of my favourites in a video game (Think Sephiroth from final fantasy 7 but with a less dark story).
Other than that, this game is the first in the Dusk trilogy together with Escha and Logy and Atelier Shallie and it keeps the successful formula of material gathering, alchemy and weapon crafting which seems satisfying when challenging and defeating uber bosses.
The time-management aspect seems more lax than the previous installments.
Unleashing special skills, which have their own lengthier animations and music if they were the final blow, requires certain requirements feels very satisfying as ever.
Another welcome innovation is the introduction of 3D dialogue scenes rather than 2D portraits for many parts of the game.
All in all, this is the best entry level game in the Atelier series for newcomers!
Alchemy starts off quite random,with skills added as you level which allow you to target specific properties.
I had a lot more difficulty initially with getting good weapons than in the previous games. But a much easier time making "super" weapons for the end game.
Story wise, it's very open. You have a goal "Find your sister" and beyond that you discover everything as you go.Notes are kept in a journal in no particular order and unlike previous games the progression is less linear.
I'd rescued the sister by year 2 , but the game keeps going.
It's an entertaining,fun game, without being spectacular. A completely new world and cast with nothing to do with Rorona,Totori etc. It's no Ni No Kuni (which anyone who wants to experience a JPRG should get) but it will keep you occupied for a couple of weeks.
Another great addition with a new story
Even if u are new to the series, I think you will like it... the star of the game is definitely the Item synthesis system which pretty well crafted to be both enjoyable and very rewarding (Alchemy as it is known in the game)
I had a blast with this game !!
First things first: on its own merits its a good game. Good battle system, nice little story (Bit cloying as always but this is a Gust hallmark) and the synthesis system remains excellent. This is the first installment to have almost total freedom - you have goals to meet, revolving around the mystery of your sisters disappearance, but apart from that you can basically do what you want, which is quite refreshing after the ( still lax compared to Rorona) deadlines of previous titles.
The graphics have got a bit of a boost again too and I do like a lot of the artwork and design.
What lets this game down is its the first PS3 Atelier not set in Arland. We're in a whole new territory here, with whole new characters...and they're a bit bland, in my opinion. Compared to Totori and co. and Sterk and Rorona, I found Ayesha and her friends to be disappointing company. Maybe its because we had three games to get to know the Arland crew.
Apart from Keith (whom I liked) and to a lesser extent, Juris (stereotype but still entertaining), Ayesha's cast is just plain inferior.
Also, what gives with not being able to make your own weapons and armour? This is game that revolves almost entirely around crafting. Now you have to pick up your togs from random monster fights? No thanks.
So all in all, a bit of a lacklustre effort I think. I'd rather play Totori or Meruru again.
