Summary: The game was really good but short. You can beat the game again but it's not as fun even with the extra bonus points, equips, and more difficult game play. I would suggest playing this but don't pay too much if your an avid game player. I think number one was better. Not as many cut scenes as before.
Summary: First off, I LOVED the Fullmetal Alchemist series. I only managed to catch about half the episodes before we got rid of the cable channel that had it, so I missed out on the ending. I was delighted about a year ago when I found out that they did/were doing a remake Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, which apparently more closely follows the original magna. I played the first Fullmetal Alchemist game, Broken Angel , and liked it.
Summary: Lets be honest most licensed games are unplayable. Well Fullmetal Alchemist 2 is actually a fun and very playable game from start to finish. You get long dialog scenes and the game even comes with some actual animation that was made just for the game. The game is fully voice acted by the cast of the show which really helps it out a lot. Graphically there are a few rough areas but not many. The character models look great.

Summary: Fullmetal Alchemist 2 Curse of the Crimson Elixir continues the Fullmetal Alchemist gameplay. You are the two brothers, hunting through the world for the philosopher's stone. The game is an odd mix of good and not-so-good. First, the good. The graphics are lovely. The cel shaded look makes it feel like you're walking around in an anime series, with nicely detailed backgrounds. The sounds are also well done, with good series-related music and voices.
Summary: This game is one of the best fma games i've played. it follows more of the anime and much better than broken angel (the first fma game) i would recommend it to any one who likes fullmetal alchemist. or someone who likes anime in general. Game came factory sealed BRAND NEW and arrived in decent timing. This game would probably not be as much fun if the buyer has never seen FMA or is not familiar with it. However, when i got mine it came with a dvd with 2 free episodes!
Summary: It's only for those die hard FMA fans out there. Alphonse this time around helped a bit more but the game was too easy. Alchemy was not limited but sort of use in spots. They did have the original voice actors from the Anime and movie! There was too much text talking though. This one followed more so than the first of the original Anime series. There was no challenging battles at all. I think the graphics could have been much smoother.
Summary: I agree with the rest of the reviews that grant this game a 4 star rating. I thought it was fun, even when I played through it a second time. I could listen to the voice actors for this series all day long, and even Chris Sabat seemed well-adjusted to his part. (He does a good Armstrong, but that's only because the over-the-top and outlandish voice he normally performs actually fits the character for once) I was extremely happy that they'd returned for the game.
Summary: I purchased this product for my 14 year old daughter. She is a huge Anime fan and a fan of this show in particular. She was very excited to recieve it and has spent several hours enjoying it. The game has good art and graphics. It follows a good story line and stays true to the shows characters. She did say that this game is easier then the first one. I'm not sure if that is due to the game or her being more adept at the game since learning on the first one.
Summary: Not bad bad game over all. I enjoying playing it a lot especially when it comes to using the alchemy. I only have two complaints. First, the music is horrible. It's not the music from the series. And two, the game very loosely follows the plot from the anime. Cornello isn't eaten by Gluttony, but sucked into a hole into the ground by a mysterious woman.
