If you are serious fan of the series and are iffy about trying Rorona, I would say it is worth it. If you are a new player who would like to try out an Atelier game, I would recommend buying Atelier Ayesha instead. The Dusk trilogy is superior in every way to the Arland trilogy, and Ayesha was probably the best of those.
What you get with this game is basically a virtual job. The whole point is to make items for customers and personal use, gathering ingredients from stores and the combat areas. Combat takes a back seat, for me that's a blessing. For others it might be mind-numbingly boring. But to me and many other people, it's incredibly satisfying and addicting to find that rare mushroom or what have you.
I'm not very far into the game yet, maybe 6-8 hours but this is the start of a beautiful relationship with the atelier games I think. For anyone reading this, just know what you're signing up for before you buy.
Final fantasy this ain't, but that's a beautiful thing in today's gaming market
Everything has been redone for this new version. The graphics (especially the character designs), quests, costumes and new characters are a joy to behold and interact with. A bingo game is available for anyone who gets tired of too much adventuring.
When the game's been conquered, players are given an additional year to fool around and explore uber-tough dungeons with Totori and Meruru.
Finally, the cross-save function of this title allows players to leap into the story with epically powered-up endgame characters. With this nice bonus, the difficulty is taken down several notches, but that's not a flaw with the Atelier series. Not only is the game meant for children, but it is also designed to be slow-paced to help fans chillax every day. Even the music is perfectly tailored towards this goal. Not only is it airy and floaty, with just the right infusion of vocals, but it is rarely tedious or boring.
However, if you are looking for a traditional RPG like Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, I don't recommend this game because this game is quite different than that of most RPGs.
The Plus version updates the graphics so you don't have these odd looking children for teenagers/adults, simplifies the game to not need a walkthrough quite as much, and adds a new chapter post-game from the sequel games in this trilogy. After the heavier tones of the Dusk trilogy, I was very happy with this game as a fresh take. Don't look at the original version at all, this game has everything and more. Just be careful if you are coming from the Dusk trilogy- you may have gotten used to no time crunches, and this game has them- but nowhere near as bad as the original!

Its a cool game, just not what i was expecting. I'm not the biggest fan of the turn style based fight scenes. However, the game does have a great storylinePublished 6 months ago by Arrie
I can't figure out what there is to love. The game has glitches where buttons do not react the same way constantly. Read morePublished 10 months ago by L. Payne
