Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings Reviews
Atelier Lydie & Suelle switch to a twin heroine concept is both funny and entertaining, but the game overall is technically outdated and doesn't add much in terms of gameplay from its predecessors.
Its a lighthearted take on the role-playing genre that emphasizes discovery and experimentation. While Atelier series veterans may be well acquainted with the game's flow, the game has plenty of unique whimsicality to entertain anyone seeking an amusing role-playing title.
Featuring largely familiar combat and a mostly lighthearted story, people know by now what they are getting into with the Atelier series and that is really no different with Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings.
To set this to a close, the game itself is noteworthy with its well-written dialogue and the vast amount of story scenes present in the game. Characters are unforgettable although a bit of a Japanese cliché at this point. While the battle mechanics is pretty standard, the fact that the game is more focused on synthesizing makes up for it. Japanese voice overs is spot on and I can’t find any fault at it considering I’ve been a fan of Japanese anime for quite some time now. With the rare typographical errors creeping in here and there which can be forgiven.
