  • Excerpt: is the second installment to the "Mana Khemia" series. In "Fall of Alchemy", the school is going down the tube: enrollments and profits are down. In addition, the faculty members are not as interested in teaching the students as helping themselves. In an effort to keep the school alive, the administration created a new curriculum that includes combat, governance, and law. Students are required to take classes in all areas.

Mana Khemia 2 (PS2) - Review

VGChartz
29 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Gust is not your average JRPG developer. While most JRPG’s attempt to make epic stories that have you saving the world and learning important life lessons along the way Gust is much happier making cute silly little stories with just a touch of raunchy humor. The first Gust game I reviewed was Ar Tonelico 2 , which was a great game except for an unfortunate localization job and extremely dated visuals that brought the title down to being average overall.

Mana Khemia 2 ~ Fall of Alchemy ~ – Staff Review

RandomNPC
31 August 2009
  • Excerpt: One year, four months, and thirteen days ago I gave my opinion on Mana Khemia ~Alchemists of Al-Revis~ , a title I described as “the union of several good ideas other games had but never put together before.” It was a strangely-worded explanation of a strangely attractive game; none of what I played then was all that new or unique, but so many elements came together into a deceptively entertaining gestalt that, frankly, I didn’t care.

  • Conclusion: It’s no doubt that Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy has succeeded in the areas where the first installment didn’t. While some may be weary due to the buzz surrounding Alchemist of Al-Revis, Fall of Alchemy is truly a solid RPG experience that PS2 and PS3 gamers alike can both partake in. With more than 30+ hours of gameplay, two storylines, a diverse roster of characters and locales, you can easily see that this title is well worth every penny.

Mana Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy

Project COE
25 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Let me conclude this review by saying that while Mana Khemia 2 is not without its flaws, it's been handed a serious helping of charm and innovation that helps it stand on its own. If you haven't experienced a Gust RPG before, then you would do well to invest some time at the academy of Al-Revis. Despite its shortcomings, I thoroughly enjoyed the alchemy-focused gameplay and approachable school culture that Khemia 2 brought hand-in-hand.
