Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key - Story Trailer
Positive: 12 out of 12

Mar 23, 2023Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key has to be one of the most straightforward and beautiful RPGs in the series as a whole while also being way friendlier to new players than other installments in the series. This is a game that even non Atelier fans will be able to sink their teeth into easily while being able to fully customize their experience through the game's new Synthesis system and its Secret Key mechanic.
Mar 23, 2023Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is a fantastic game that finally manages to show off the development team’s capabilities when they’re given extra time, a bigger budget, and a little bit of breathing room. Every aspect of the project benefits from polish, and as the final game in the Secret series, Atelier Ryza 3 is the perfect send-off. The callbacks and relationships from the previous games grow and evolve, and it’s exciting to see these beloved characters find their place in the ever-expanding world. While I often say the latest Atelier game is the best Atelier game, it’s always true. This time, Gust have outdone themselves, and I simply cannot wait to see how they top this highly polished gem of a game.
Mar 23, 2023Atelier Ryza 3 is Gust's most ambitious game, and a fitting finale for Ryza. Gust and Koei Tecmo have delivered better visuals and performance over the console versions on PC, but Ryza 3 unfortunately has some issues on Steam Deck at launch.
Mar 27, 2023Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key provides a poignant send-off for Gust’s audacious alchemist. Old friends convene and loyalties are tested, resulting in a payoff that rewards commitment to the trilogy. Despite some performance issues, the biggest reward is watching a matured Ryza make her way across an open world, expressing confidence and charisma that’s genuinely inspiring.
Mar 28, 2023The finale of the Atelier Ryza Series. With the rejoin of the original scenario writer, both story and the system side of the game have been positively improved. In particular, the Seamless Field gives you a great taste of exploration, while the real-time turn-based action combat adds excitement to the progress.
Mar 23, 2023Atelier Ryza 3 confirms the amazing quality of this franchise, optimizing the combat system, strengthening the already excellent game framework, increasing its scope in terms of content, maps and longevity. A few bad aesthetic jokes don't ruin a game that makes adventure, lightness and relaxation its trump cards, taking home the loot with an obvious effort to be rewarded without hesitation.
May 22, 2023Atelier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & the Secret Key is a great closing chapter for Ryza trilogy that is closer to the original game in spirit, and manages to fix some of the shortcomings of the second part.

A strong conclusion to the trilogy with a more focused narrative. Large maps are fun to explore and packed with things to do. Art-style and visuals are great, and backed by impressive orchestral music. Fast-paced combat with a lot of choice, further amplified with the addition of Keys. Alchemy is fun to tinker and offers a lot of options.
Limited and repetitive field dialogue. Blocking during combat can get hectic around multiple foes. Some bugs and slight hiccups with optimization. Tutorials skip out on some important info at times. You'll pick up a lot of junk and have to backtrack frequently to the Atelier to dump it all.… Expand

There is so much to do and see and synthesize. The battle system has evolved into a fully fledged combat system that is better than most of the JRPG games I have played - in fact I think this is one of the best JRPG games I have ever played.
I enjoyed the characters as they all have depth and are not just one-dimensional. The whole world, lore, and characters feel fleshed out. There are so many cut scenes and side quests that help create a deeper enjoyment and understanding of the characters. I just wished I could speak Japanese - I must have read a novel worth of text in this game! It was worth it, though. The writing can be a bit too westernized at times, with characters using colloquial slang that only upper middle-class Valley girls would use, but is very intelligent 95% of the time.
The story is pretty original and very fun. The whole game has a nice laid back, casual feel. Though, I did get killed a few times by strong bosses so the game can be challenging at times.
The world is very nice and has a ton of environments to check out. I spent over a hundred hours on this game and still haven't seen all the locations. You really get your money's worth here.
I highly suggest this game to anyone who is a fan of RPG's and looking for a casual, laid back game with some challenging moments and a fun story and characters. However, I highly suggest playing the first two games in the series. The story is new, but there are so many characters from the previous games and references to them that they do feel mandatory. Luckily, the first two games are fun as well, but Atelier Ryza 3 is the best Atelier game I have ever played.… Expand

The story is interesting but not that great. Missing was maybe a level of emotion. There are some good dialogues in the story. The game sadly just adds even more systems then 2. It just terribly confusing, and half explained. Some of them are totally useless. Constructing your Ateliers is a gimmick that amount to nothing. That said, the items creation is still fun. The combat is fun even with the keys but the ultimate move, is just a waste of time. It is fast pace at least. The interface for managing your party is absolutely horrible, but the rest is relatively decent. Voices are in Japanese, with sub in English. Difficult to read all the mini skits, so just ignore them. The music is really good, I think the sounds could have more creatures sounds effects, but overall everything feels different from one Islands to another. I give it 80%. I still prefer Ryza 2 but doing worlds quests, and main was about 73 hours. Worth the money… Expand
