Synopsis

The Alchemist of Arland is a classically styled role-playing game, set in a realm of alchemy and magic, with turn-based battles and complex character development. Based on a long-running Japanese series, it is the fourth console game in developer Gust's Atelier series to be released in North America, and the first developed for PS3. The game's graphics employ cel-shaded 3D characters and finely detailed 2D backgrounds, to create the effect of playing through a high-definition anime feature. Combat plays out with each character and enemy making its attack in turn. Positioning is not important in the abstract battles, but using the most effective attacks at the right times, against creatures with different elemental strengths or weaknesses, can make a significant difference in a close fight. The game's alchemy interface allows players to combine quest rewards and found objects into tools, armor, and weapons of great power or specific use. The game's ultimate challenge is to create the rarest object in the world - an object perhaps powerful enough to save the realm, or destroy it -- using exceptional ingredients and alchemistic expertise gathered throughout the adventure. The plot plays out as a series of 12 great tasks, each of which must be accomplished within a limited amount of game time, in order to proceed to the next. The story branches, according to the player's role-playing decisions, to multiple possible endings.

Key Features:

  • Looks like an anime feature; plays like a modern console RPG
  • Conquer 12 challenging chapters in an original epic adventure
  • Use alchemy to combine items in to rare and powerful weapons
  • First in the popular Atelier series designed for play in high definition

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not in the habit of writing reviews. But I also don't like petty cheap shots at all. And one "review" of this game on this website does indeed qualify as a petty cheap shot (the one star one obviously). So here I go to act on behalf of a game I genuinely like and also for balancing purposes.

Atelier Rorona is a game that is different from most other games. One of the most obvious ways in which this is true is the story. The story of the game is very sweet and simple. There is no long globe-trotting journey and no grand world-saving scenario. Instead we have a simple slice-of-life story. Obviously whether or not that is a good thing depends on what you're looking for.

Personally I see it as a good thing. The video game market is already filled with long journeys, world-saving scenarios, and big wars and the like so one game that's different is certainly not going to hurt. Now I like to take long journeys, save the world, and discover the mysteries of the universe as much as anyone. But I also find that it's good to take a break from all that stuff every now and then, relax, and delve into something nice and simple.

But while the story is simple one of the things that sets Rorona apart from many other games and really makes it shine is story flexibility. While the story itself is simple the game puts a great deal of emphasis on character interaction and character development. In other words I think it's safe to say that this game is all about the characters. The game gives you the freedom to choose which characters you want to cultivate relationships with and which ones you want to ignore. If you want to you can even build strong relationships with no one or everyone. You do this by gaining friendship points.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing, Addictive, Fun October 5, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a huge fan of Gust and of the previous entries in the Atelier series, I had high expectations for this game. I am happy to say that the game has completely met them. I've been having so much fun playing this game, getting to know the other people in Arland, and working on harvesting new items to synthesize new things. I have to watch the clock a lot when I play this, because it's easy to just keep saying "oh, one more job" and realize I've been playing for hours. The story scenes are sweet and fun to watch, and I'm especially enjoying Sterk and Lionela.

The combat in this is very basic, and in most gathering areas, the fights are extremely easy. The assist system adds a little more to battles, but it's still simple, traditional turn based play. However, the fighting takes a backseat in this title to item gathering, synthesis, and character interactions. Some of the animations for character's special moves are very cute and fun to watch, which adds a little something to the basic battles.

The backgrounds in Atelier Rorona are stunning, and the cel shaded characters look very nice. I especially like the little touches like the character sprites reacting to the dialogue in the game and the way Rorona's cape flounces out when you have her jump. This title has beautiful music that helps add to the game's warm, inviting atmosphere. I wasn't a huge fan of the English voice-acting, but the Japanese language track is intact, so users are free to choose whatever they prefer.

I'd highly recommend this game to fans of any of the Atelier games, especially Atelier Annie, fans of Harvest Moon and Rune Factory, and fans of visual novels. I'd also suggest this title to those who enjoy some of Gust's other games.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best JRPGs released thus far October 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a huge JRPG fan, I've played a large amount of the JRPGs of this current gaming generation. However, they all seemed to revolve around the premise of saving the world/universe, and eventually I grew bored in the genre. However, Atelier Rorona single-handedly revived my interest in the JRPG genre and has made me very excited for Gust's upcoming game to hit the States, Ar Tonelico Qoga, and has made me hopeful that Rorona sells well enough so that the sequel, Atelier Totori, makes it to the States.

Atelier Rorona is not your typical cliché-filled save the world RPG. Instead, it's a simple game that revolves around an incredibly deep item creation/alchemy system, interaction with the game's colorful characters, and exploring the world while doing quests for the people and your friends. The game's time mechanic makes for very fast-paced and fun, frenetic gameplay, which I've gotten very addicted to. However, if you are looking for a JRPG with a deep combat system, then I would not recommend Atelier Rorona. The game is focused on alchemy, like I said earlier, so the combat system is pretty much your standard turn-based system found in every JRPG. Don't let this deter you from a fantastic game though.

Atelier Rorona also marks the first 3D Atelier game that Gust has made. The cel-shading is very well-done in Rorona, especially the character models. Environments, however, look a little bit bland and blurry sometimes, but you won't notice it too much as you'll be spending a lot of time in your alchemy shop whipping up new items or in the wild gathering materials for that super-awesome item you'll be creating, whether it's a plain pie or even a cannon. Another thing that I really love in Atelier Rorona is the music.
