Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is by no means the best Atelier game in the franchise, but it does take the most chances. The story is driven by a purpose the player can easily get behind while the party members support Firis’ growth during her adventure. The game offers so much to do and see throughout with even more that opens up after the first act.
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 Feris: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey is sometimes charming, but frequently feels a bit vapid in execution. The core of Alchemy is done well, but the things around it don’t hold up. I can praise it for telling a more personal journey, but not much else.
