Too much story, not enough gameplay!
19 June 2011
Summary: When I first bought this game, I had high expectations for it and was very excited to receive it. I mean, being such a popular series, the video game should be awesome, right? However, when I opened the game and played it through, I was disappointed. Almost all of the game is cutscenes and story--it was almost like rewatching the series, but it a very condensed version.
Summary: Not a big fan of anime, I didn't know what to expect of the game to be completely honest with you. I just thought anime spin-offs on console games always turned out decent. FMA is mediocre at best. Once again, I ventured to an EB Games and saw it on the shelves, and saw that my collection lacked this title. The cover looked great, so I bought it... at $29.99. I really need to stop doing that. I have no idea how the story goes, so it was entirely new to me.
Conclusion: Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy is based on the first FMA series, and is a side scrolling beat-em-up. In order to fill the massive plotline the 51 episodes created, a lot in crammed in, and points are left out, leaving people unfamiliar with the stroy confused. The game is playable, but they could of done so much more, I mean, they had a great story to work with, but instead, the developers chose to go for an outdated, and far too overused, side scroller beat-em-up.
