Crippled by disappointing writing, Atelier Lulua also fails at delivering enough nostalgic content to veteran fans of the Atelier series. Little interaction with popular past characters and late, expensive DLC eventually shatter the Arland dream, and substitute characters fade in comparison. Solid gameplay & challenge otherwise
Addictive, lengthy, and true to the original spirit of the series, this spin-off boasts more than enough depth to make up for its dull combat.
