    Old School Graphics plus Alchemy equals to fun...I had never expected this RPG to be so much fun! With over 200 events in a single action plus funny scenes, you couldn't ask for more, and the style of...

    A relatively simple RPG that feels straight out of the SNES era, and in a good way.

    GAMEPLAY: This is a turn-based RPG where characters can act as soon as their turn comes up. The whole basis of this game is alchemy, which the main character can work on. Alchemy lets you use mana t...

    During the car ride home from my favourite retailer, I decided to open Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana since the 20 minute car ride couldn'tpossibly get any worse. I was astonished to find myself sitting...

    At best it's average. It has some really nice touches, but it could have been so much better.

    I really wanted to like this game more than I did. I've always liked the retro-style RPG's, and when I first saw this I was hoping for some of the thrill and enjoyment I found with Terranigma or Breat...

    A great old school that would please any J/RPG fan out there.

    Atelier Iris ~Eternal Mana~ is the sixth in a series of games from Japanese developer Gust. The series is a sort of "cousin" series, much like Namco's "Tales of…" series. The first three games (Atelie...

    This is game is too retro for it's own good.

    Rated on July 02, 2007 by fbasque78

    Atelier Iris would be an awesome game if it was released on the SNES (minus the movie cut scenes which would require a CD Format). But, by today's standards the game is too simplistic in everything it...

    Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana is a journey back to the 32bit 2D RPG with a lot to do, perhaps too much to do...

    Back in the early days of the Playstation era, games such as Breath of Fire III and Grandia would have done very well. They offered crisp clean 2D art, with usually a large gaming world, with lots to ...

    Had potential to be a great rpg.

    Rated on February 20, 2006 by WHRLWND

    This game was really great. I was disappointed in how easy the game was but that is about it. The games good aspects are the item creating, the mana skills, and the storyline. The games storyline is p...

    Regardless of its years, Atelier Iris:Eternal Mana retains its uniquness of style, and unreplicable flavors as a JRPG.

    Rated on February 25, 2010 by Lebaneze_RPGist

    Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana is one of the semi-early games developed for the PS2 by NIS America. Positively surprising, its ratings which ranged from 7-8 were enough to continue the series. Its sequels...
