    It was okay, but anime games in japan are the equivalent of movie games here. nothing special, mostly bad, but most gamers stateside can't tell the difference.

    All I can say that this is just your normal average game. You should reconsider before getting it. The huge fan of FMA mike like it. The game is rather short though. And its like a half way play till central.

  1. One of the most salient problems with Full Metal Alchemist is the amount of repetition. After you get bored of the alchemy the game boils down to eliminate the enemies and move into the next room and repeat for the duration of gameplay.

    Given its short play time, easy challenge, and straightforward nature, The Broken Angel could definitely occupy you for a weekend or so, but I'm not so sure that you'd ever go back to it.
