Atelier Lulua is a fun game to play in small spurts. It combines crafting/gathering with a decent JRPG combat system. While crafting and gathering can be tedious at times, the general concept is pretty fun. Discovering new ways to create better items is where the real fun lies. If you're looking for a game with a meaty story to it, you should look elsewhere. If you can overlook the story, and play simply for the mechanics, Lulua brings a lot to the table. The game is genuinely fun for the right reasons, it's a shame the story is so lackluster.
Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland is the perfect way to conclude this now tetralogy. That said, Gust could surprise us with another game set in the world of Arland. For now, though, Atelier Lulua is a crisp and clean experience with cute visuals and an even cuter cast of characters. While the gameplay is simple, it’s engaging enough to hold your attention and the best part is that you don’t need to have played the previous three games in order to understand this.
A fronte di un battle system soddisfacente e di una storia tutto sommato godibile, però, non possiamo fare a meno di notare che sarebbe forse necessario un po’ di coraggio in più per una serie che conta ormai venti titoli; soprattutto, ci saremmo aspettati maggiori passi in avanti sul fronte narrativo e qualche novità più corposa in termini di gameplay. Sfortunatamente, per questo dovremo ancora aspettare.
