Wanted to try the first one on Switch, never bought it. Heard the sequel is pretty much an improvement in every category. Bought a physical copy.

Don't see the point of playing the first one if number two is better

The first one is still $60+ for Switch. Ryza 2 looks and runs well on everything based on impressions and reviews. PC version has actual graphics settings and the Switch version doesn't have performance issues.

Atelier is one of those series I keep buying games from "because one day I'll get to them"... but truthfully the only one I've played through was Iris, back when that first came out in the US.

I'm not into alchemy/crafting stuff nor time limits. When it comes to RPGs, I like epic journeys with great music and interesting world design. What's the best Atelier game for someone like me?

They all have a lot of crafting, so you're out of luck there, but most of the latter entries don't have a time limit [or a very lenient time limit]. Really, Atelier Ryza is probably the best place to start since it's a complete overhaul of their formula [the first major overhaul since the series moved to PS3 back in the day] and it doesn't have any story or character connections to any of the previous games. Clean slate and all that. But if you wanna go back to one of the earlier games, Escha & Logy is really good.

Pretty sure Ryza 2 is like a direct continuation of the first game's story with a lot of the same returning characters.  I'm back on it and will go through it before trying 2.

Speaking of which, I feel like I'm already "stuck" in Ryza trying to find where certain characters are to trigger story events.  I can't remember where some of them are. :lol

Answers from the expert:



But she doesn't mention Ryza because she hadn't play it yet.

Decided to order a European copy of Ryza 1 from Amazon. I figure that it's better to get a physical copy of 1 now before they're all gone.

Well my Atelier Ryza 1 came with an empty fucking box with no Switch cart and the seller resealed the game. Some London Brexit fuck stole the cart and sent me the box. I guess this game is rare enough that the box itself is considered to be $60+.

Got a refund and will order again. Crossing my fingers that I'm not mouth fucked again.

Might want to check eBay.  Here's a new, sealed U.S. copy for $80.

I decided to get something else with the refund money (opted for a gift card rather than wait for it to go back to my card). If I dig Ryza 2 a lot, I'll buy a digital copy of Ryza 1.

OH!

I like the new ATB combat system, helps the battles flow a little more smoothly feels like. Definitely an improvement in a lot of areas over the previous games in the series, not even big things necessarily but tweaks and changes to make the game more fun.

Physical version coming out in Asia- would recommend pre-ordering.  The last collection sold out pretty fast, IIRC.
