Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


The world of Mana Khemia will be familiar to anyone who has played the developer's previous efforts. Gust, best known for their work on the fan-favorite Atelier Iris has returned...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


The sound is slightly better thanks to a solid (albeit somewhat repetitive) soundtrack and a nice variety of sound effects during combat. As for the voice acting, it ranges from good to downright atrocious, and every time we met a new character, we...

You can walk, run, jump and even attack with Vayne’s sword while running around, which gives the standard turn-based gameplay a little extra push. Vayne can clear grass away with his sword (like Link!) and strike enemies as well before they attack...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists Al-Revis


Following closely in the footsteps of its predecessor Atelier Iris, Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis refines the item synthesis process into the leveling scheme, completely abandoning traditional experience gained systems. Light-hearted and quirky,...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


More anime-drenched adventure for niche RPGers

Strangely alluring ; Battles, later in the game ; School atmosphere is cute

Extremely same-y ; Tedious synthesizing ; Sloooow start

The biggest trouble of all is that Khemia borrows too much from earlier Gust games. Atelier Iris 1, 2 and 3 all share sprites with Khemia, the music is almost identical and the characters are as forgettable as ever. Even if the storyline is somewhat...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


Project "A9" (that is, the ninth game in the Atelier series) shows that Gust can continue to adapt and evolve, even while using their classic gameplay and graphic styles. After five separate Atelier games that Americans have never seen (Marie, Elie,...

Mana Khemia revived my love for Gust titles, just when I thought I was losing that love (see Atelier Iris 3...). Mana Khemia seems to have been a success in Japan, what with a PSP port of this game as well as a PS2 sequel coming out in Japan later in...

Almost the Right Recipe


Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis brings alchemy back to the fore. Perhaps a little too much.

If you're clinging onto your PS2 in the hopes of riding out one more year with arguably the greatest RPG system ever created, this might just tide you by, but for those seeking a meatier, more sustainable role-playing game, you might have to start...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


Alchemy is a popular subject in the realm of fiction, and in particular, videogames. The developers of the Atelier Iris series, Gust, have dabbled in alchemy for some time now, and in Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis they further explore the theme,...

If Mana Khemia is the type of game for you, then you probably already know it. This niche title does little to captivate its audience and its main gameplay mechanics will act as deterrents to the average gamer.

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis


When developers Gust decided to make another game in their line of alchemy RPG series they got right to it. Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis plays just like past games created by Gust. Combine different items, listen to anime like dialogue, and...

If you are looking for a change in the RPG genre then this might be the perfect game for you. I can?t say Gust has tried to hard to change their games too much, but the formula is still welcomed. This game is worth checking out, just make sure that you...

Mana Khemia: Alchemists Of Al-Revis (PS2) review


Nippon Ichi delivers another class act...rn

With its individual elements weaved together so tightly, Mana Khemia: Alchemists Of Al-Revis is a rare game in which you really need to take an interest in all of its components in order to progress with any of them.

They came from the sewer, and so did this game


I haven't written a scathing review in awhile, and considering that my dear one and I just played one of the worst games we can ever remember together on September 13, 2008, I figured it was the perfect occasion to bash said game here on ...

You can unlock the classic Turtles arcade game from 1989

You have to play many hours of a horrific game to unlock the arcade game
