This by far, is the best Atelier out of the 3 released in uk as of yet. The music is catchy and beautifully arranged, the graphics are pretty with very cute artwork overall. The quest and world development system is much improved over the previous games since the added markers on the world map which highlight the required items/monsters/tasks that need fulfilling, making progress much easier, rather than keep having to check a list of what needs to be done and trying to remember or locate the needed items. Also the quests are no longer time based meaning you have as much time as you wish to complete them. The story is pretty cliche and typical of an atelier game but the characters and dialogs shine through with a great range of heroes from the the first two added and improved.
Combat is pretty similar to Totori but the characters lifebars and stats are easier to see so you'll be able to keep track of their statuses.
Excellent game which is reccomended to someone who's never played an Atelier game. I really can't wait for the next game in the series :)

I am a big fan of the Atelier series and this is definitely a very solid entry into the series. It has the enjoyable hallmark mechanic of material gathering, alchemy and turn-based system but it also gives you the task of cultivating barren lands, which feels very satisfying. The story, characters and graphics are charming too. While the main story part is relatively easy, the post-game stuff, which is accessible via free DLC and is called Machina Domain, is very challenging and it forces you to put your best alchemical skills to the test. Also the game is very cheap now (12 pounds at the time of writing this review).

Without a doubt the best of the three Arland games, one can see the increasing polish as one goes along. You should still ideally play Rorona and Totori first so you can get the references, but Meruru is an excellent stand-alone game for the budding alchemist in you.

I'm biased as a fan of the series.
There are a more user friendly features like saving on the world map, larger container to store stuff. Lots of excellent charming and funny cutscenes.
My favourite characters are back, Rorona and Sterkenburg, Esty and Hagel Bold the weaponsmith.not forgetting Totori the perfect teacher of Alchemy. As well as new ones of course Mereru the pincess is feisty but not spoiled and has a very positive personality and her best friend the perfect maid Keina.
I especially loved the battle music theme and the over the top special attack animations.

Loved playing this game. As with others in the series the only down side is the time limit. Takes away some of the enjoyment.

The atelier games are very fun and colorful games, the games keep getting better and better. As the last game in the arland trilogy it's no wonder it's better than the previous two. Good game:D

Atelier series is well renown, and it mixes perfectly a fantasy world with cute and carefree characters. Meruru is the third instalment of this series and improves a lot of aspects over Totori.

Another atelier entry. Same familiar gameplay but with a different situation to keep things interesting.

We bought the game after reading the reviews here on Amazon and it is quite good. I haven't finsihed the game yet but I will certainly play the game again as soon as I am done, because I haven't explored all the aspects of this game.

The only so-so about this game is that there is SOOOO MUCH talking between the ladies... :)

Try it!
