Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"After exploring the lands of Arland for three titles, Koei Tecmo introduced fans of the series to a new land, new set of characters, and a change-up to many mechanics when they transitioned into the Dusk series with Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk. While this change may have been interesting in a few ways, each step forward was met with a step back that led to Ayesha being one of the weakest recent titles in the series. Now that Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk has been released; is the title better than the original?"

Question for anyone who is a fan of this series, is it worth getting into? There are quite a few of these games for the PS3 and I'm unsure where to start or if its even worth the investment at all...

The Atelier series is a bit more complicated than your average JRPG thanks to the way that players are given a time limit. Everything you do in the game takes time, including fighting battles so generally you aren't going to have a whole lot of free time unless you're familiar with the system.

That being said it is a very popular and long running series so if you do like them you'll be finding a new game coming out every year or so as Gust is pretty much treating it like an annual series at this point. Though I'm not sure if Ayesha would be the best game to jump into, it is more streamlined but among the fanbase it is very divisive.

The time limit is the main reason I can't get into these games. Takes the fun out of it for me, sadly. Which really frustrates me because these games look like they would be a blast otherwise.
