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.
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.
Summary: Mana Khemia evolves to a new level with the ultimate 2D graphics blended with anime influenced 3D environments. Game play is as excellent as its looks with plenty of action and tons of item crafting. Players can indulge in the hardcore world of gaming with the highest degree possible on the PS2.
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.
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.
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.
