Full Metal Alchemist game

At the end of the new ep. there was something about a PS2 game so i searched and found this:
http://www.square-enix.co.jp/games/ps2/hagaren/
I can't say i am suprized becuause after all, the show is sponsered by the two (well now one) laregest game developer in Japan. After a visit to this website, i am definatly buying this game, though it is a shame it is coming out AFTER christmas, oh well, i found out too late anyways. Well, if anyone findes a nother link with some goodies in it, if you wouldn't mind posting it up i would be very greatfull.

Anyways, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Just remember, it's only being published by Square-Enix, it wasn't *made* by them.

Acording to this sight it *is* being developed by square-enix, though the sight also *is* ign, so you can choose to belive or not. I think it it safe to say it is.

Before i start my post, i would just like to add a note to the mods that this thread should probably be moved to the FMA sub section. I just thought it would be stupid to start a new thread about the exact same thing so i just added to this one.


I finaly got the game (YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!), and it is AMAZING. Well there is a problem though, given that it is an action/RPG, it has a shite load of talking/reading, and obviously, it is in Japanese. However, if you watch the show, you should get the main idea on what is happening.

As for the actual gameplay. I really like it. You can use alchemey to make blocks of stone apear infront of you as a defence or to reach things. The other interesting thing about the use of alchemey is that you can change things in the environment in to a usefull wepon (usualy get two choices). As for the graphics, they are great. The cut sceens are anime. Acording to a couple of sites (and my knowledge), the animation sceens are exclusive to the game, which explains why i don't recognise the cut sceens from the game. There is one thing that i wasn't that impresed with. In most square-enix games, the talking is acted out, however in this game, only the text is avalible.

Over all if i had to rate this game, i'd give it a 9/10. My review is of corse, bias since i am a fan of the show, however i think that any fan of RPGs will like this game.

I bought this game over that PS2 Macross game.


>_>


I wish I bought that Macross game instead. I haven't played a console game in years (other than a few Super Robot Taisen games here and there), but seriously. This game just bored the hell out of me.

Uh. No. Those are original characters made just for the game. As far as the timeline goes, this is supposed to take place in between chapter 9 and 10 in the manga or episode 17 and 18 in the anime.

Of those game characters characters, only Genz Blethlow actually showed up in the manga (chapter 17 actually, but that was just a picture of him in an advertisement for automail).

Didn't Square-Enix announce a game for FMA before the show even aired? I wish they would hurry up with the localization so I could play it. I'm guessing they are going to sooner or later, since Square-Enix was saying how FMA was one of their three main pillars of support (or something like that) along with Final Fantasy and (correct me if I am wrong) Dragon Quest. And that probably means the anime being eventually licensed is almost a given.

Even if FMA does get licensed, there will fansub groups that'll sub it.
I want to play that game~ Sigh... How come I don't know Japanese?

Sure you can download anime after it gets licensed. You can steal, too. Didn't you know that? O.o;;
