Product Description

Product Description

The battle system is real-time based, similar to those of the Star Ocean games. Only one Reyvateil can be present in battle. The player controls one of the three Vanguard (support/attacking) members, and the AI controls the other two, though the player can change the character he/she is controlling at any time in battle. The Purge system is a key element, as it allows Reyvateils to use their high-level song magic. However, 'purging' also has importance for the Vanguard characters, as it allows them to use their best attacks.

Japan's Ar Tonelico role-playing series makes its first appearance on PlayStation 3 after two consecutive releases on PlayStation 2. The storyline follows a young man named Aoto in his quest to save a girl from being abducted by a mysterious organization. Aoto will be able to form a party with those he meets in his travels, which will take him to various towns and dungeons.

Synopsis

Ar Ciel, a planet that was once lush with many prosperous inhabitants.

The humans of this planet created a new species with the power to convert songs into various energies, Reyvateils, and boasted about their highly advanced civilation.

However, a foolish release of immense energy triggered a global catastrophe that changed the world. The planet was shrouded by deadly clouds, called the Sea of Death. With the loss of the land, only three artificial Towers were left for the people to reside on.

The world of the Third Tower, Sol Clister, is practically controlled by Reyvateils.
The State of Reyvateils who reside in the upper part of the Tower, Clustania, exert their authority over most other nations from the top of the world.

Clustania aims to establish a society that consists only of Reyvateils and "Purified" human slaves.
To acheive that goal, they carry out genocidal campaigns, called Cleansing, upon the human communities that dare to defy them. They literally annihilate cities and towns, turning them to ruins.



Key Features:

  • Form a party to explore the world, visit towns, and enter dungeons
  • Earn dive points in combat to enter a character's subconscious mind

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Though the name doesn't explicitly mention it, this is actually the third game in the Ar Tonelico series, with installments 1 and 2 on the PS2. A good deal of effort seems to have been taken to make this game accessible to all players, however, regardless of any experience with the first two. This is extremely welcomed in a genre usually loaded long-running jokes, recycled battle systems and the like. There are a handful of references and loose NPC associations to the past games, but I want to be clear up-front in saying that most anyone could walk in here fresh and not feel at all disadvantaged. If some topics, terms and story elements do still end up confusing, data in the game 'Encyclopedia' can get people up to speed.

Standing out most to a lot of RPG players (and particularly those of Gust titles) will be the graphic and audio presentations. Exploration areas are in a tastefully rendered 3D, as well as all character movements in live scenes and battles. Textures and backgrounds are very obviously reused, but for a low-budget game I was impressed to see that at no point did an area feel truly dead or dull from past exposure. The soundtrack, as the series was already renowned for, is again top-notch and outdoes itself. An outstanding balance between familiar melodies and dynamic battle music has been found, which greatly enhances the music-based nature of the game universe and "song magic" driving combat. All this is above any beyond what one would typically expect within the genre.

In the review title I say "well-polished" in that, though by the sort of standard you might expect to see a top-rate action game, gameplay and combat are innovative and there's obvious attention to detail everywhere you might look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Song to the People March 24, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
With Ar tonelico Qoga, Gust delivers the exciting conclusion to the Ar tonelico saga that began with Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia and continued in Ar tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica. While this series may not be as familiar to gamers as popular franchises like Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts, Ar tonelico Qoga is a wonderful gem that should not be missed by JRPG fans.

The first question that is probably on everyone's mind is whether or not it is required to play first two games before Diving (yes, pun intended...more on that later) into Qoga. In general, you shouldn't be too lost if you haven't played the other games, though certain events may have less of an effect on you -- in particular, several of the characters from previous games return in this title and there are occasionally references to previous events. It might be fair to compare this to watching the Lord of the Rings films without having read "The Hobbit" -- a few things here and there may feel less significant, but in general you should still find it to be enjoyable. Even so, the game includes an Encyclopedia that will allow players to brush up on the history and lore of the world if they so choose to.

The story is quite well crafted, though it may take a little while to get going. At first, the story simply feels like a classic setup: boy meets girl, boy protects girl, boy fights against evil empire. However, as the story goes along, the lines between good and evil become somewhat blurry -- villains and heroes both may not be what they always seem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every last penny July 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Holy cow.

I have actually been avoiding my PS3, playing PC games since I had given up on a real RPG (not the FF Franchise) appearing for this console. I saw this on PSN Japan last year and liked the music so much I picked up the Limited Edition soundtrack when I was in Japan last year because the tracks are all of my favorite fantasy/ethnic singers. But then, I saw they changed the name from Ar Tonelico III to Ar Toneligo Quoga (? to quote one word a character says?) bought the english and my life was forever changed.

I could not put the game down. I am on vacation right now and literally, I could not stop playing I was having so much fun. The excessive amounts of Loli suggestive themes are offset by game's acknowledgement of the mature content. You can also turn off the "purge" sequences so you don't have to be visually blasted by people stripping as part of the power up ritual as you blaze through the game.

Lots of content. You can play the game straight through and just do the mini stories of the singing girls (Reyvateils) to get your base requirements, or you can go all out and delve completely into their minds and unlock even more characters and endings. You can even switch the language back to Japanese (the English acting actually is pretty spot on but I find the original Japanese just as enchanting) You can get so many endings (Bad ending, Normal for several, True for several) that you will not be able to play the game just one time and feel that your life is absolutely complete.

If you've been looking for the next big RPG game that has character development, don't mind pot jokes about mature subjects, detailed storyline and not just a grinding time sink, Quoga is definitely your game
