Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia Overview

Full of simple puzzles, repetitive conflicts, and childish sexual innuendos Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia is quite an interesting RPG. The title contains all the elements of an RPG necessary for a great game, however they are all oversimplified to the point where the term “game” fails to apply. Without much challenge this title becomes more of a children’s book than a game.
