Set against a vibrant background reminiscent of a medieval European town, the Atelier series' latest standalone installment follows the exploits of a young novice Alchemist, Sophie, who discovers she is the owner of an enigmatic book imbued with a soul. This Mysterious Book seems to hold all the secrets to the art of Alchemy, even going on to become Sophie's mentor. As Sophie improves her Alchemy skills throughout the story she unravels forgotten memories, and eventually sets out to uncover the strange tale of the book's origin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing and Fun Beautiful game that will only get better in the sequel. The soundtrack is superb, combat took a hit but still fun. No time limit = happy camper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a Atelier game, nuff said. Most likely if you played an Atelier game you have an idea what's in store. Updates in the crafting system and better graphics make it a welcome addition. The characters in this installment didn't draw me in as well as previous installments but that's not enough of a deterrent not to love the game. If you're a fan of other Atelier games I highly recommend picking up Sophie and keep this series alive.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disappointment if you love the series skip this one. Ive played everyone since atelier rorona and loved each one until I hit this one. No real story line, just a basic premise. No true ending the story stops at a minor battle and image, no multiple endings for characters or anything even. No game plus, a first for this series. No sense of urgency in the game, its true in the others the time limits made a first playthrough difficult without a guide but it made it fun too and then your second run was just outright fun, this one has no real anything too it. Crafting is still ok, its even more indepth than before which is nice if a bit confusing with no real toturial. I played it through (with three days of just crafting endgame gear) in under a week and for the first time with one of these have no wish to replay either for start or honestly to stick the game in again. Why bother there's not even any extra dungeons, though supposedly there are some supper bosses but whats the point when beating them give you nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better then I expected I mainly got this game because I loved the pass versions of this game and those a kin to it and promised that I would be all games from my past that are new or remastered from Valkyrie chronicles, Valkyrie profile, persona, dragon quest, Star ocean etc. But as I played I was like this is good but then I got addicted and it kept on getting more content to do from more actions and customize leveling to character interaction it just brought more to the table and I never went hungry. I am at work and I cant stop thinking about.
