Review - Atelier Firis: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Journey

Atelier Firis marks the eighteenth entry into this long standing franchise. Change is good, yes? Well, in alchemy, changing a recipe can also bring explosions. Let's all remember that.

Tuesday, Tuesday, gotta get down on Tuesday...

    Thank you for your detailed review. I've yet to finish Ayesha & Shallie.

    Do wonder if Blue Reflection had any impact on the development, Gust seems pretty interested in hyping that one.

    Thanks for the interesting review Nyx. It's sad to hear that Atelier seems to be continuing to go downhill. Gust still has some good ideas (like in Nights of Azure), but maybe they aren't getting baked for long enough since they were bought by Koei Tecmo?

    Weren't they doing frequent entries before the purchase? Seems like they're just trying to mess around with new ideas, which can't be easy in a yearly franchise.

    Yep, the Atelier series has been darn close to one-a-year for the past two decades, with some iterations far better than others. The Arland and Dusk series were cream of the crop, while the nadir was probably the buggy early entries of the PS2 period. This is a series prone to rough transitions between consoles as well. Here's hoping that Mysterious #3 turns out better.
