Atelier Annie Alchemists of Sera Island
The Game was quiet entertaining.
My Own Rant: The game was quiet a nice break for those types of hardcore gamers that sometimes get a little sick of the stress of your average game problems. It was almost like an RPG vacation for me. In the game, once you beat it, you get an ending depending on how you were doing in the game, and at the very end, YOU'RE ALLOWED TO RESTART THE GAME WITH ALL YOUR ITEMS (except recipe books/tools) AND MONEY! Your expience is lowered back to beginner, and the game is completely reset. This is the trick to this never ending game. Which I found really cool because its really easy to "master" the game, so to speak. Its the gamers dream get away. In fighting, its turn based, and gather stuff is a bit too easy, but easy none the less. Except when it comes to the items that are only monster based *cough* lizard tail *cough*. But if you have a good balance of fighting/gathering/and alchemizing, you should be fine in the game. But don't forget, at the end you reset again. So that means that on your first time around, you should do whatever you think you should do, and then on your second time around, just do whatever. When I found out this little trick, I used my 2nd chance to do nothing but gain money. So then my 3rd time around I started the game with about 700,000 coins (or whatever the currency was, I just turned it off). And on this time, I'm probably just going to farm and alchemize everything to their maxes. Like I said, its an easy game to breeze through. With some dedication, I was able to beat one whole session with just one and a half day(s). It was really simple. But if your a hard-core gamer, this isn't for you. Its for the casual gamer, or those hard-core gamers that just want to relax before jumping to another awesome but tough adventure. I know I'm going to play this game more, and a lot of the series for the other consules are pretty amazing. I recommended this to all my friends. And its really great. So... Play it!
Atelier Annie is one of the best games that i have ever played on my DS and is very addicting! However, there are many pros and cons. And some of the pros can become cons after playing the game often. The music is different for almost every place and is very entertaining to listen to! About the artificial intellegence... you basically control them in battle and after you become friends with them, you unlock little skits that can become very boring after your 2nd to thrid playthrough. The characters that isnt the main doesnt really have its own way of doing things, their personalities are shown through the possiblily hundred of skits. In addition, there is voice acting. Although the voice acting is not in english but japanese! Annie's voice actor can be annoying to listen to but the other people's voice actors are well played out. Things about the game: adorably cute (everyone is in a chibi form and this could possibly be a con) collecting items is simple (although a little too simple) three years in the game go pretty fast especially when you're trying to level up your alchemy level the day meter goes very fast the skits are entertaining but some of the are lame the functions are very easy to use battles are incredibly simple and you can only use three characters including yourself the people have interesting personalities the six major assignments are rather easy although the sixth one is almost impossible can be confusing on what you are required to do requests from people can be crazily hard or insanely easy there are several endings to this game, all of them give a funny ending the storyline is incredibly short for what you would think it would be Overall, this game is awesome and i recommend this to people who are rpg fans, want to play an easier rpg, or are just starting to get into the rpg genre.
i have played this game 4 times still love it.
i highly recomend it. it has been alot of fun i can play it over and over again
