Very Good but..4
I miss the old battle system, which was more fluid and fun but this Ar Tonelico Qoga is still a very good game. It has the usual date sim in this type of game. Like the previous versions of Ar Tonelico, you have to 'fix' the reyvateils heads and cure them of their 'ghosts'. I still haven't finished the game but from what I can tell it's really fun.Report this review

Ar Tonelico Quga is actually the third and final installment of the Ar Tonelico series, that started on the PS2. For those of you who might not know well, they are a series of JRPG's with dating sim like elements thrown in. If you're worried about missing the first two parts don't worry too much since the story is set in a different "Tower", basically a different part of the world. If you've played the previous installments, you'll see things newcomers miss, but you'll still be able to enjoy it. As for the story itself, I wont spoil anything (look it up in Google if you're interested), but just say that it feels unique enough to not be seen as a typical JRPG. Still it probably wont convert any JRPG naysayers. The combat has changed from a turn based system to a real time action system, which in my opinion was a change for the worse. Near the start of the game, it seems slightly interesting, however, it quickly degenerates to repetitive button mashing. The other big part of the gameplay lies with the daring sim elements I mentioned above. Warning: if you're offended by sexual innuendo do not buy this game. If you find them hilarious, you'll love the humor in this game. You go through a dating sim type part of the game to try and improve your relationship with the female character, and also improve their fighting abilities. These involve 'diving' into the subconsciousness of the characters and interacting with them and through this process, you'll get to know more about the characters you're diving into. It's an enjoyable part of the game, more so than the combat. If you've already played the last two games and haven't decided if you're going to buy this one, go for it. If you're new to the series there are better JRPG's out there for the PS3, but it's certainly not one of the worst.Report this review
