These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky
Even Better Sequel: At least according to the review circuit. In Japan, it's the highest-reviewed Atelier game ever made. Period. It is similarly the entry with the highest aggregate rating on Metacriticnote technically it ties with Totori Plus, but T+ barely even breaks the necessary 4 reviews to place, while E&L has twenty-six reviews, the highest number since Iris 3, and brought in the first perfect score the franchise has ever seen on that aggregator. And as ever, while the actual average seems low, it's due to the ever-present problem of some critics just not understanding the game - the high scores stand among the very highest the franchise has ever, ever seen outside of Japan.
Funnily enough, though, among fans this status is a little more debated - some fans take issue with a few elements (like Logy's central position to the plot), as outlined below and think somewhat better of Meruru or Ayesha.
