When AT2 came out, I swear there was less than 10 copies between all the EB games here in the city, and nowhere else had them. Luckily there is a little gaming store called PnP Games that special orders games, so the two people that I have gotten addicted to Ar Tonelico were both able to get copies from there :)

But yeah the third can probably be played stand alone, but to get all the subtle references and probably some of the humor, I suggest playing the other two. Even if you just play the third, by the time you're done, the music alone will probably have you hunting for the other two.

I just beat Ar Tonelico Yesterday. Took me about 33 hours with the Aurica Route. I can say it was a blast and I learned so much Lore for the Ar Tonelico Universe. I'm now starting up Ar Tonelico 2 :mrgreen: I hear the combat is a little bit more complicated but I hope I'll adjust well. Can't wait to see all the cameos, from 1 to 2 to finally 3.

I just want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for giving me reason to purchase Ar tonelico 2 again. I know I wasn't the OP, but your posts convinced me to give it another try. And I also want to thank NISA for the restock. If it wasn't for that, I would probably not have been able to get the game (as the prices were insane)

It was an amazing ride, and I can't wait to play Qoga with all my newfound knowledge of the world that this series is so focused on ~
