    The very reason I became an Atelier Iris fan.

    Good and Interesting story. The second entry in the Atelier Iris game, it is certainly more interesting than new games in ps3. Has two focuses and, by far, is more interesting than escha and logy. Synthesis and Battle, the two later unite in the story, even though it's not two stories, it has more of these elements than the ps3 one.

    Overall, a very decent game for Ps2. Interesting and very well done story.

    While it follows the style and tone of it's predecessor. It lacks the charm and innovation AI1 had. AI2 seems to be a bit more combat focused this time. While the combat is greatly improved upon from the game before it, it's still a little dull.

    None the less, AI2 is far prettier than AI1 also has far more interesting characters and overall story arc. Overall: A decent addition to

    A decent addition to the Atelier series that isn't as good as the game that came before, but, still fun and enjoyable none the less.

  1. Atelier Iris 2: Azoth of Destiny may seem out of place on the PS2, but it has a simple charm that will win over anyone with fond memories of the 16-bit RPG era. [May 2006, p.47]

    It's the kind of game that made me feel disappointed it was over. If all games that were just polished versions of older games like Atelier Iris 2 is, then I'd never want for an original game again.
  3. A Japanese console RPG fans wet dream. It manages to incorporate incredibly creative and new ideas into an old formula with amazingly fun results.
