Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm review

  • Fast battles
  • Enemies visible on the field
  • Longer than previous Atelier Iris games
  • Generic story and dull dialogue
  • Reusing locations ad nauseam
  • Weak graphics

Atelier Iris 3's gameplay systems will tickle RPGers' OCD mental G-spot for a bit, but not often or long enough to put up with the game's lack of any other redeeming values. Fans of the series may enjoy it as a way to tide them over until next year's probable release of Atelier Iris 4, but others should only consider it if they've already beaten every other RPG out there and even replayed a few - despite a few original wrinkles, just about everything in this less-than-Grand Phantasm is done better in other game.

    Not quite a bad game... just.. a lil' too easy i think... but quite fun.. btw.. graphics arent that bad... what I like: storyline, gameplay,graphics What i dislike: too much side quests before going on with the main mission.. imo, it grows the boredom....
