Similar to Naruto: Narutimate Hero? That's good, 'cause the controls were easy. (now that I think about it, the graphics were really similar as well.)

I saw the demo at a game shop today... But sadly, I didn't get it, because I just recently got Suikoden IV... Wonder if I can sneak the game into the house without my family members noticing...*sighs* probably not...

Are you referring to Narutimett Hero (what is the correct spelling anyway?) or Dream Carnival?

YAY! Finally got to play this game today! ^^

I finished Mustang and Hawkeye's scenario and I'm VERY VERY HAPPY! ^^ RxR fans will love this! ^________________^

Ok... review time. I colored them in yellow so that i won't spoil anyone who doesn't want to....

game interface is cute but lacks interactivity... and woud've been better if they added some more goodies happy.gif

controls are easy... combo moves are easy... but special moves are still a mystery to me (like how to get that "mini-skirt" attack thing)... environment interface is also similar to narutomate heroes, but gameplay is different.

battle mode (in scenario mode) is done by pairs. so it's you and your AI partner. You can command your partner to come with you or perform combo attack with you but other than that, he does things on his own. There are 3 rounds, but it's non stop. meaning, each party has 3 rounds. If one of the characters die, 1 round is taken from the that team. if the other is defeat, then another round is gone. then if one of them dies again, they finally lose.

it's also very frantic and fast paced. while a character prepares to do a special move (you know, with all the posing and stuff), the actual game play is displayed in a small screen. you can still move around giving you a chance to get out of that place and save your butt from the attack... OR attack the character strong enough to disable his special attack.

characters include:
Default:
- Ed
- Al
- Mustang
- hawkeye
- Armstrong
- Hughes

Unlockable:
- Winry
- Izumi
- Greed
- Lust
- Gluttony
- Scar
- Pride

menu include:
- scenario mode
- battle mode
- practice mode
- item mode (still don't know how this works though)
- game setting
- omake

Graphics is okay... Cell-shaded and look very close to anime. controls are a bit jerky though and the frantic pace gets me confused at times... those special attack poses are distracting, I tell you. AI is... pretty stupid. sometimes, your opponent's partner will do nothing to help his buddy.

The battles in the scenario mode are pretty easy... until you get to pride who fights solo! yeah, you da man, pride! :,3

he's pretty tough, but if you're a long range character, he'll be pretty easy. just stay in one place, shoot him before he gets to his swords, wait for him to get up a bit, and shoot him again. keep at this pace and you'll get through just fine. took me lss than an hour to figure this out.

as I said before... I suck at fighting games. so, it means that this title is pretty easy... that or there's a difficulty mode there somewhere that I ignore to change.
cool.gif

Sorry to double post, but thisi s quite long...

scenario mode summaries:

ahehe, actually, here the scoop:

there's currently a festival in Central. Ed and Al joined the battle contest to win a cat house for all the cats in Al's armor to live in... more like an adoption center. Scar saw one of the kitties and fell in love with it. :,3 Winry & Ed story unlocked;

Mustang joined the tournament to spent time with Hawkeye. In the end, they have a date. But Barry butts in, and soon, Riza's fans came running after her. Hehehe, she's more popular than Roy now (since she reached #1 Heroine in the female anime characters top ten of newtype and animedia biggrin.gif ) Lust & gluttony story unlocked, Lust unlocked

Hughes and Armstrong joined to spread Love! hehe, their mission title has "Love" in it. The end just had Hughes leaving Sheska to get to his daughter.

Lust and gluttony joined because gluttony wanted to eat (Chisa? there's a particular food he wanted to eat). Anyway, in the end, they were given a banquet. the script went something like:

Gluttony: *eating a fork*

Lust: Ara ara, that's a fork...

Gluttony: *eating a plate*

Lust: Ara ara, that's a plate...

gluttony: *eating the table*

Lust: Ara ara, that's a table...

Gluttony: *eating...?

Lust: Ara ara, that's the fuhrer

Bradley: Hahahaha! don't worry about it!

Gluttony unlocked

Winry and Ed's story... upon hearing about the tournament in Central, the two, leaving Al behind, join the tournament to get the money to buy new parts for Ed's automail upgrade... in the end, Winry turns his automail into... *remembers paninya in ep 26* Winry unlocked; Al & Greed's story unlocked

Al and Greed's story... is more like Al's story with Greed just helping him out. Al is sulking that he was left behind. So greed convinced him to join the tournament and get what they want. al wants a girlfriend. In the end, Greed didn't want anything, but Al, since Armstrong heard he wanted a girlfriend, is intorduced to Catherine Elle Armstrong who instantly falls in love with him! Uh-oh, hope Havoc doesn't find out that a kid has bested him in the women department ^^;;

not too many since the battles are pretty easy, especially when I'm up against someone with winry... (sorry rolfie ^^;;)

haha, she keeps getting herself and her partner killed with her bombs. one time, she was paired with Bradley. I barely went near her (roy and Riza) since i was busy looking for items. Lo and behold, she set some bombs, didn't leave for cover, and, along with Bradley, got damaged by the bombs that she set! hahaha, it was the easiest win against bradley ever!! she had herself and bradley nearly killed 2x... all i had to do was land a final blow on both and DONE!

the hardest to control, so far, is lust. her long range is unpredictable and her response to control are rather slow. my least favorite character to use is Winry (sorry rolfie)... only her attacks have the ability to damage her partner and herself. her physical offenses are weak and she had only a few combos compared to the others.

my chars so far: ed, al, riza, roy, hughes, armstrong, winry, scar, lust, gluttony... still don't know how to unlock the others.

btw, rolfie, the omake has 2 image galleries; one for game CG, and another for anime scenes in trading card format. another omake is the voices, and another is a player counter to see how long you've been playing.
