-Party and supporting characters are very likeable and interesting. Each one has their own traits and distinctive personality. I especially liked the fact that your party characters play a more active role when it comes to exploring.
-More towns to explore, with each town containing a place for you to practice your alchemy and get some rest.
-More save points.
-Lots of sidequests.
-Improved battle system.
-Better basket and container handling for you to view and gather your items.
-I actually liked the english voice actors.
-Improved goal system.
-Definitely pretty to look at. Each place you explore is very unique.
-If you disliked the previous series because of the time limits and constant time tracking of gathering items, traveling, and synthesizing items, then you won't be thrilled with the changes. There is a little bit more freedom (you don't have to gather as many items and synthesis in terms of days needed is faster), but you still have limitations that greatly limit your first gameplay and will most likely continue to limit additional gameplays.
-Its obvious that the creators assumed those who were playing this game would have played the previous titles. There was a noticeable lack of explanation and tutorials. I also found myself constantly checking the help section and reading online even though I had played other titles.Read more ›
1. Gameplay-wise, a new positional element has been added that integrates into party-member assists. It adds a new element to the tried and true Atelier formula, but ultimately it only helps to boost battlefield prowess slightly without adding significant depth or differences to core gameplay.
2. Story. The plot is quite enjoyable and I'd rank it above Totori as the best of the 4 Atelier games for the PS3.
3. OST. The sometimes quirky, sometimes epic music returns with appropriate tracks for all situations and sets a good atmosphere.
1. Not only is the Japanese VA missing due to a business decision by the new publisher, Tecmo Koei, but the English VA performance is not up to snuff compared to Atelier Meruru. At the very least, Ayesha's VA delivers a somewhat flat and bland performance for the lead character. Disappointing.
2. Graphical style took a step back with Atelier Ayesha. The characters look somewhat disproportionate and their design are slightly out of place. I feel like Meruru had a far superior visual representation.
Overall I think if you're a fan of the previous Arland games getting Atelier Ayesha is a no-brainer. Atelier games offer a more cerebral and time-management oriented style of JRPG with a significant emphasis on crafting compared to more action-oriented traditional fair like Tales of Graces or Final Fantasy XIII. I'd recommend Atlier Ayesha based on the sum of its parts.
Of the Atelier series, I have played them out of order, starting with Meruru (third of Arland trilogy), Ayesha (first of Dusk series), and now Totori (2nd of Arland).
This is the first game in a new trilogy of Atelier games, the Dusk series. As has been seen so far, typically the player is given 3 years to complete a given task, and in some games, if the player is doing well, they will get an extension <<spoiler: this one does not>>. Once the deadline is hit, game ends wherever you are, and player must either return to an old save file (save often!) or restart the game in New Game +, which allows player to keep money and current equipment, but nothing else. I'll say it here as well, this time system needs to be done away with / revised. While having a main goal to complete within a time frame is acceptable, forcing a reset on the player makes the work of collecting items, completing quests, and leveling up unsatisfying. The game can be a bit grind heavy as is, resetting only amplifies this problem.
That said, on to more review, particularly I like to look at things from a game mechanics point of view. I presume that the reader has or if not, should, see video footage of the game they are interested in, as pictures tell 1000 words, and videos are 30-60 pics a second or whatnot, you get the point. Video footage may best give you the overall feel for the graphics and gameplay that you can expect. This is discussion on the gameplay mechanics and overall impressions upon playing through the game once (not 100% completion).
