Aside from framerate issues and a lack of truly meaningful exploratory content, the series has never been more impressive from a technical perspective. Any fan of the Atelier games will be captivated with what's in store, and newcomers may just find something to admire as well.
The world itself is bright and colorful; a better representation of the tone that Gust was trying to nail. Felling beasts and solving the world’s problems after getting the exam out of the way becomes an engrossing and relaxing experience. With some tuning of the initial time mechanic and a rework of the characters, Atelier Firis could have been the best the series has seen. Still, it can boast the best world the franchise has offered to explore, and that is saying something.
Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey provides a great example of how a game can provide an entirely fresh experience merely by shifting around the mechanics that it already had, as opposed to piling on new ones. From its unconventional beginning, and through the entirety of Firis’ journey, I found myself both surprised and delighted by what this game had to offer. Getting this should not only be a no-brainer for not only Atelier series fans, but anyone in the market for a quality JRPG.
