Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: Well this is going to be a short review. It’s not because I’m a lazy game reviewer, and it’s not because I think your attention span has been destroyed by too much television. It’s simply because Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy is a short game. So short, in fact, that you can complete it on a single flight or long car trip. And that time is not necessarily well-spent… Dual Sympathy is a pretty simple brawler that will evoke memories of bygone games in older gamers.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy Review

GameSpot
5 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Alchemy isn't without irony, it would seem. Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the most popular and well-liked anime series worldwide, but somehow its conversion to the Nintendo DS diminishes the series from gold to lead. This short adventure that skews toward the macabre tries to cram the entire running length of the anime into a short beat-'em-up. In doing so, it completely saps the anime's story of its personality, and it offers a pretty unsatisfying beat-'em-up to boot.
  • Pros: Large quantity of bonus media, Tells your fortune
  • Cons: Low quality of bonus media, Very easy and not much gameplay, 51 anime episodes is a few too many to cover in a four-hour game, Slightly disturbing story, in a bad way, Poor sound quality from voice actors

  • Excerpt: Yesterday I had the pleasure of reviewing Full Metal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy. Pleasure might not be the right word. It wasn't quite eye gouging, but there was definitely an urge to hurl the DS into the television before sneezing my brain out of my nose. Thankfully it didn't come to that. It's all about willpower.

Full Metal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy

Portable Review
27 December 2006
  • Excerpt: In my opinion, Full Metal Alchemist has one of the best story lines in anime. However, that does not mean that a game needed to come out to completely fly through the story and present in a less than attractive way. To be quite honest, Full Metal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy is about 80% story and 20% gameplay. You can skip through some of the story [which I recommend], but the problems don’t stop there.

Official Nintendo Magazine

  • Excerpt: Should you have to be a massive fan of an animated TV series in order to enjoy a videogame based on said show? Someone at developer Destineer certainly seems to think so, at least if Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy is anything to go by. Packed as it is with loads of random characters and reams of text that, despite trying to chronicle the plot, explains very little about who's who and what's going on, it's the very epitome of the term 'fanboy friendly'.
