Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland Premium Pak
Interesting..But not for everyone
Very different and anime-ish.
Some people might feel its too 'girly' or 'cheesy' so i recommand watching trailers or some gameplay before purchasing.
this game is great because it has a mix of a RPG and a somewhat like a strategy game because you have to do the quest things and parts of the game are actually quite difficult, but the alchemy is amazing because you can create weapons, accessories, armor and the like this is a game i would advise any Final Fantasy fan to give a try because the battle system is a turn based so for all you turn based fans you'll have fun playing this game.
Atelier Totori is not an epic RPG like many other games in the genre try to be, but its allure allows it to stand tall as a bittersweet and emotionally charged experience that may require gamers to pull out the tissue box. Totori's journey is one from innocence to experience, both in terms of how the story works and how players help her grow to become an alchemist. At the same time, events in the final act of the story pack a greater punch because of the contrast between serious and playful elements. The gameplay continues its solid trend, and Totori shows constant refinement to the tried-and-true Atelier formula. NIS America and Gust have given RPGamers a fantastic game with a great localization and an impeccable way to combine aspects of the simulation and JRPG genre as well as time management mechanics that pull you in and don't let go. Furthermore, Totori outdoes its predecessor in nearly every aspect, showing that Gust is always trying to one-up itself with each new release. Atelier Totori shines for its honesty, and has a lighthearted feel that the majority of RPGs don't match.
It's difficult to find fault in Atelier Totori, but I recognize that it is not a game for everyone. The characters are mostly unique and interesting, but their roots in anime archetypes are obvious. Synthesizing items can get repetitive, and the main story is underdeveloped until near the end of the game, but these are fairly negligible issues. Fans of previous games in the series will find a lot to love here, and the modern conveniences are attractive enough to lure in hesitant newcomers. Players looking for a colorful world, a lighthearted story, and deep gameplay need look no further than Atelier Totori.
Sigh.. Gamestop, oh Gamestop
I love the game series, and I couldn't WAIT, but of course, they say it comes out the 27th, and then move it to the 28th, and then say the 30th, I am very disappointed, an employee told me it comes out tomorrow, so if I go and it is not there, I don't know what I will do, maybe find a different game provider.
Speical Edition on Gamestop finally
I was wondering if Gamestop is not going to sell Totori Special Edition. Well now they have it. I am really glad that NIS released second series of Artiler of Arland. With great price deal I am thinking about getting on too. Since I have played Japanese version already I can tell this. If you really loved Rorona. You will love this Totori one too. Now I am playing Meruru which is thrid one that was released few months ago in Japan. I don't know NIS is taking so much time releasing Artlier series. It's Mystery.
Wow Finally the special edition.
I'm really glad that special edition finally made it's way to gamestop. I thought only the standard version would be available in gamestop. I'm even more excited now. Hopefully all DLC of the game would be available as soon as the game releases on September 27.
