At some point in the last several years, Gust's Atelier releases became annual events, a far cry from when the games first started showing up in the West as more of a novelty. Like many annualized series, this intense development cycle sometimes delivers entries that we wish spent a bit more time... stewing in the... uh, alchemy cauldron.
Because of that, it's refreshing to read Audra's review for Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness and the Secret Hideout, as Ryza's adventure certainly sounds like it is one worth diving into. Audra is new to the series, so don't let the fact that this is the 21st Atelier game scare you off, either. Check out her review and let us know what you think!
