    I appreciate the maturity that GUST is bringing to the Atelier franchise. In fact, I really, really appreciate the maturity that the developer is injecting into its flagship series, and frankly, I can't think of a better quality traditional JRPG out there than this one.

    The game is the perfect entry for newcomers to the series and also provides plenty of depth and Atelier staples for those series veterans. The improved combat, ease of item crafting, and the relaxed time constraints make for an enjoyable game without making it a snooze fest.

    Yet another charming, low-stress Atelier title that provides a good respite from the melodrama of its RPG peers.

    With an improved combat system, Atelier comes back with a game that will appeal at a wider audience, as well as classic fans of the series.

    Escha & Logy may have some flaws, but it's good at providing a formulaic experience that rewards you with seeing your progression play out before you.

    Gust continues offering nice and delightful JRPGs designed for PS3.

    There's a simple, if somewhat dull, pleasure here - like settling into an easy chair on a Sunday afternoon. [June 2014, p.78]

One of the best games I have played. Very interesting story and it is not very niche compared to other games. Very good, despite the flaws in which are minor. This game cannot be missed. It passes on where the atelier series left off. Very good game for those of you who want to have a good time to relax and spend time on playing this game. I guarantee that you will want to lend it to your friends so they could give it a try as well. Again, one of the best games for the ps3 if not the best(ist) of all time. The story line also feels realistic so you don't have to worry about being disappointed, Expand

    This was/is my first Atelier game, and I started off on Logy's storyline and didn't really expect much. I must say I was shocked over how wellThis was/is my first Atelier game, and I started off on Logy's storyline and didn't really expect much. I must say I was shocked over how well this game actually seems to turn out. I remember seeing reviews of these games series down at 5/10 and 6/10, calling it niches and what not. Ok, maybe this game in particular is way better than the older ones, but as a newcomer to the series I had nothing to compare it to and tbh not much to complain about. The combat is entertaining and constantly evolving, adding new characters in a good paste and the crafting... I can not remembering enjoying crafting at such a level before... The closest I can think of is the Witcher series, but even them should take a few notes from this series as for how it should be done.

    Only reason I put it as 9 instead of 10 is that the music could be more diverse as for battle themes, and even though the graphics are good it is not Skyrim or Final Fantasy. These are just minor stuff though, so ye... The game is worth your time.

It's not that I didn't like it I did have fun playing it, I didn't like how short the main story was and the camera angle. This game has a good combat system and the graphics are alright, if the main quest where little longer I would of liked it better. I don't know of it was I played it wrong that made it short. Expand

    did not love this atelier either. the story is not engaging and the time management system is annoying and won't let you explore and developedid not love this atelier either. the story is not engaging and the time management system is annoying and won't let you explore and develope at you own base. Atelier Aysha's story was sweet but time-management is not...time managemnt sucks the fun out of games specially RPG ones, if you want a great atelier game/RPG on PS3 then skip it all together to Atelier Shallie: now that's how you make RPG!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. rewriting once again. This time, providing enough points as to why this game sucks and no one should buy it.

    Story: This is the main point of a RPG, therefore, the score is affected the most by this. Story is bland and boring. After spending more than 12 hours of gameplay, it is safe to state that the "two stories" thing, is a lie. Different commentaries. That's it. Whether you chose Escha or Logy, story is the same boring stuff. You only see what they think of certain situations, but, story unfolds the same for them. For an RPG having a boring and bland story is unforgivable, as it should be the main selling point.

    Graphics: Bland. It didn't seem to fit for me. Or the characters for that matter.

    Sound & Voices: Preferring the japanese audio helps a bit. But, some characters are simply uninteresting or bland.They try to put variety in them, but, end up bad as they seem too typical and I figured them out too fast.
    Anime like intro... If you want to know what happens in this boring game, you may wait for the anime... it may be a lot better than this game.

    Overall: It's another game of Time and Resource management. Which is excessively boring to me. If you want a two sides story in a game, Mana Khemia 2; The Fall of Alchemy is thousands of times better than this crap. As in this game, gathering, performing alchemy, fighting enemies, moving in the world map, etc, consumes days.

    For the above mentioned points, this game doesn't deserve to be played at all. Gust has lost the meaning of the Atelier games, much like squeenix has lost the meaning of FF games. Again, Story is the main focus of RPG's. Why does it seem that they have forgotten that?!
