    Fullmetal Alchemist is an alright game that has some very annoying flaws that prevent it from being a good game. The graphics could use a lot of polish so the graphics are not great at all but the voice acting is very top-notch. The plot is relatively interesting as the plot of the game does not follow the plot of the anime although the anime's plot is much better the plot of the game isFullmetal Alchemist is an alright game that has some very annoying flaws that prevent it from being a good game. The graphics could use a lot of polish so the graphics are not great at all but the voice acting is very top-notch. The plot is relatively interesting as the plot of the game does not follow the plot of the anime although the anime's plot is much better the plot of the game is still nice. The gameplay is where the problems crop up, the gameplay is complex and rather annoying as enemies can constantly wear away at your health without you being able to retaliate and soon you are dead. You cannot heal yourself in the game and this proves infuriating. The worst thing about the game is the save points, they are so unevenly spaced out and so few that if you die you have to start from like 30 minutes ago and watch the same stuff a million times because you can't skip. I became very infurated because of this, all these flaws make Fullmetal Alchemist one of the hardest games you will ever play. Overall, Fullmetal Alchemist has a great story that is bound to keep you hooked but the annoying gameplay elements will turn you away. I recommed renting this game because you won't want it anymore after dying a million times and redoing everything a 100 times that you almost break the TV. Breakdown for "Fullmetal Alchemist 2: Curse of the Crimson Elixir": Presentation: 8, Graphics: 4, Sound: 7, Gameplay: 4.5, Lasting Appeal: 5, Verdict: 5.3 out of 10 "Average". One of the hardest games you will ever play.â Expand

  1. Like most carnivals it's fun today, dull tomorrow.

    It's not a classic game, but Fullmetal Alchemist 2 ably performs both of its intended functions: it's fun for existing series fans, and a decent enough game that those who haven't had contact with the original property will get far enough that the concept could intrigue them.
  3. It's entertaining enough, even for those who aren't major followers of the show, but despite all it has going for it, the short length and repetitive gameplay keep Fullmetal Alchemist 2 from being anything more noteworthy than a weekend rental.
