Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Standard

The popular alchemic RPG franchise from Gust carries on the tradition of the Atelier series, using alchemy as the main focal point. Atelier Rorona Plus focuses on the exploits of Rorolina Frixell, one the most beloved characters of the Arland trilogy (Ateliers Meruru/ Totori/ Rorona), a young girl who is assigned to complete alchemy tasks over 3 years in order to keep her alchemy workshop and not be banished from the kingdom of Arland. Players can craft new items and also battle enemies using the power of alchemy. As all games in the Atelier series, this title is set against a stunning anime-like background with beautiful 3D graphics and is characterized by an elaborate crafting and synthesis system.

The Atelier games focus on item crafting, gathering, and combat, along with some light-hearted character interactions. What story there is in these games takes a backseat to crafting. A time limit is included in every PS3 Atelier game except Atelier Shallie to keep the games moving along. I've played five out of the six Atelier games now, and I label Rorona Plus as being mediocre. The graphics are crisp, but there is literally no story, the characters aren't as interesting as those from the Dusk trilogy, and everything seems bare bones. The time limit easily gives you enough time to complete the main objective of each assignment, but if you aren't familiar with the series, you might find it challenging to get all of the bonus quests done. There is a New Game+ feature that allows you to play the game over again keeping your current equipment and money, but I found it a bit of a slog to go through the game twice (which you will almost certainly need to do if you want to see all the endings).

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.

I can't believe a game like this actually exists. I'm a gamer that likes variety and balance in my gaming, so I play a little bit of everything. When I play an RPG, I'm in it to relax and enjoy the presentation. I like diving into a good menu system that's intuitive and satisfying to navigate successfully. So, atelier seems like it was made for people like me.

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

When Atelier Rorona was released in 2010, it was plagued by a host of irritating cracks and holes in its gameplay. Most irritating of all was the MP system (or rather, the lack of it). Players had to sacrifice health to deal respectable damage. The protagonist was a frail piece of tissue in battle, leading to hair-pulling as assignments were barely fulfilled and extra content became nigh inaccessible without a guide or Let's Play.

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.

An interesting and non-traditional RPG with great graphics. For those of you who enjoy open-ended stories with multiple endings and multiple missions, I highly recommend this game. I played it for about three hours and loved every minute of it.

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.

I had bought the original Atelier Rorona (Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist Of Arland - Playstation 3). I was crushed by it's difficultly and couldn't deal with the fact that it required a walkthrough if I didn't want to miss a thing. Also, the graphics made the characters look like 8 year olds. I quickly stopped playing it. Years later I played the dusk trilogy of Atelier Ayesha/Escha&Logy/Shallie (Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk - Playstation 3 Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky - PlayStation 3 Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea - PlayStation 3) and those refined and updated iterations of the Atelier formula I was quite pleased with, and felt I could give this another shot.

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!
