REVIEWS Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemi Review
Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

What do these ratings mean?

I have to disagree pretty strongly with some of the complaints here.  The AI is pretty dumb, but I don't think it's nearly as bad as this is suggesting.  55 speed linemen will not catch 95 speed receivers unless you are dicking around.  If you are getting beat by a 78 rated quarterback either their recievers are better than your defensive backs or you are running the wrong defense.  Overall the game is way better than '08.  At least we don't have to listen to the retarded radio broadcast for play by play any more (not that Cris Collinsworth is all that great).
