USGamer Gives JRPG Lovers an Expert Rorona Plus Review

The new and improved Atelier Rorona should be catnip for JRPG aficionados.

The new and improved Atelier Rorona should be catnip for JRPG aficionados.




JRPG fans are a passionate bunch. They’re not big fans of uninformed critics who chastise the genre for producing precisely what the fans enjoy.

That’s why we’re especially impressed with USGamer’s Atelier Rorona Plus: The Alchemist of Arland review. Critic Pete Davison is obviously a JRPG connoisseur, and he goes into great detail in his analysis of this updated version of a 2010 title.

Many reviewers may opt to ignore the title entirely, or they’ll offer an obligatory token analysis that merely re-summarizes the game and describes the upgrades. Davison isn’t satisfied with that, as he goes the extra mile to satisfy those hardcore JRPG followers. And they should appreciate his effort.

The game was good in 2010 but it just got a whole lot better, so pay attention.

Why We Like It:

—  Above all else, this is a full and complete analysis. It’s all too easy to take the easy way out with updated versions of existing games, but this critic gives the reader a full review: Recaps the series, gives a bit of history, and explains in detail why this version is so much better.

A ton of content and a great summary. It’s a lengthy but well-paced and very in-depth review, and the end summary is fantastic.

— Clearly written by a big fan of the genre in question. There may be no other genre in gaming where this is more important.

I love my JRPGs and I have to admit, this guy did a damn good job.

Spent too much time on some of the more minute, less important, details. But other than that, great.

I used to be more into JRPGs than I am now. I remember trying Atelier Rorona when it first came out and I said to myself, “you know, I think I may have outgrown this.”

Great review. I always regretted missing Atelier Rorona…maybe it’s time to rectify that mistake. 🙂
