Ar Tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica for the PlayStation 2 is one of those games that I regret not buying soon after its release because nowadays, a new copy in immaculate condition is hard to find. I was finally able to find the game at a very reasonable price and I am so very happy to finally own the game. Ar Tonelico II is another role playing game by Gust that combines unique though familiar battle system - if you have played the developer's other RPGs - and some blatantly ineffective attempts at sexual innuendos. This is the tag line on the back of the box: "Always come back for seconds." Yeah. And then, you can also find this in the game's animated opening video:
Do nubile songstresses sing better when they are this close to each other?
No, I didn't buy the game just because of its "Suggestive Themes". I have been a fan of Gust ever since I played Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana, also released for the PS2. I just love their usage of pretty 2D sprites and their gorgeous yet hectic battle screens. I am very curious to learn more about the whole "Metafalica" thing (is it related to the band Metallica?) so I plan to get into this game very soon.
