as the title states, this is a pure pull off the Atelier franchise..if you played Mana Khemia or any of the other Atelier games you feel right at home. The things that do make it a little different (in a good way) are the grid combat, the simplified alchemy process, and the resort management phase. The passage of time could be a little slower, and we could have some English voice-overs since half the fun is the dialog, but if you watch subtitled anime you'll not mind that so much. All-in-all, pretty good addition of the franchise and a nice little time waster in it's own rights :)
this game is a really good game for those of you who are really laid bak. this game is just a lil mini game tat lets u have fun and enjoy spending a few quite time. this game is more like an business game than an RPG.
