Sophie is a fun game that is ultimately marred by a tedious advancement system, vague mission objectives, and the choice to downplay its battle system in favor of character interactions and dialogue. If it were to balance these elements better, Sophie would easily have been a much better game worthy, but as things stand we can only hope that the next game in the trilogy will bring more balance to Gust's trademark series.
Overall, if you aren't already a fan of the Atelier series, or even a fan of the JRPG genre in general, this game isn't going to win you over. Yet, if you love buying up the latest games from Japan, and lavish in the cheesy dialogue that often comes with them, you'll definitively feel right at home with Atelier Sophie.
Fans of JRPGs, or simply PS4 owners looking for something relaxing to play, will probably find themselves content with Atelier Sophie.
