Ar tonelico Qoga is a rather surprising game. I was expecting another boring, strange Japanese RPG with very sexual elements. What I got was an entertaining Japanese RPG with very sexual elements…that is also strange. All kidding aside, the game kept me playing. I couldn’t help but be enthralled with the storyline, and because there were no side quests, it kept me interested in the story and coming back for more. The combat, while simplistic, is satisfying and thought out. You never feel like you’re stuck due to being underleveled. The crafting and learning of new abilities is a satisfying game in and of itself. If you’re a fan of anime and Japanese culture, you may want to check this game out. I would suggest it to any RPG fan, even the non-JRPG players. It’s far enough from the norm that you may enjoy it. Just keep an open mind.
