Supremely disappointing

I rented this game because I had heard really good things about the atelier series. I found quickly that this game is full of nothing but annoying characters with no development, a great plot drive that wasn't nearly driven enough. and a combat system that spelled MEH to a T. Even the alchemy system was a total bore. I got about 8 hours into this game and still found myself just going from map point to map point hoping for the game to take SOME serious direction.

As a person who watches a lot of anime (part of the reason i wanted to play this) I hated the characters. Which means a lot. I have seen these character archetypes done a million times, and ive seen them done a million times better. All the characters were bland, annoying and had zero to no relationships.

The combat was exactly as such as well. Bland and boring. Hit them with your staff or throw a bomb or two. ugh!

If you're looking for an anime style game with great graphics and crummy characters and combat system this is your game, as the graphics are the ONLY redeeming quality. and even then it isn't NEARLY redeeming enough to make this game even remotely playable.

Hard to figure out

Once you level up, it's even harder to get equipment decent enough to keep you alive in some battles. But it takes forever to level up and even longer to figure out the game and what it is you need to do.
