Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the game a lot. However I've been noticing that this game lacked a proper review of it's translated script with human eyes. Every so often there's an error that's so obvious that it trips you up as you read it. Granted it's easy to understand what they WANTED to say and continue, but still... the major attraction of Ar Tonelico is the conversations and story. It's the last thing you should let slip in quality.

Essentially, it looks like they cut costs by putting all of the text through a spellchecker. Every error that I've seen would not have been caught by a spellchecker, as the words are always spelled right. They just aren't the proper tense, or out of order, or sometimes a word is missing.

I don't recall seeing that happen in the first Ar Tonelico, but it's been a fairly long time since I've seriously played through it as well. It might have been that they were rushing to get this out at the last minute.

Ah well. I still think it's worth picking up for those who enjoy this kind of game. :)

It's so easy for me to want games by Atlus and Nis America. Lately tho the releases seem to be by Atlus. The problem is I can't really afford them just now! :P Just saw another DS game released that I wouldn't mind playing, even tho I can't remember the name offhand. It comes with a free CD tho! :P So add this to the growing list of games I'm on the look out for, plus Ar Tonelico 2 should be out any day now. I told my sister if she's going to get me anything for christmas, to get me a gift card for HMV, since that's where I buy my games at least half the time these days. I'll end up picking up a copy of Star Ocean on the PSP with that (although I'm sure I'll still have to pay for half of it myself.)

When it comes to Ar Tonelico 2, I think I'm going to play through the first one again prior to starting 2. I'll try to get all conversations unlocked, although I'll need a couple save games for that since to unlock one girl's conversations completely you miss some conversations from the others according to the FAQs.
