Overall FMA 2 to me is awesome game especially if u're a big fan like me ><. I never played the 1st game (and by the others opinions thx god I didn't) so I say all the controls and gameplay are marvelous. What made me give the game 7 of 10 for the game was the storyline. The main theme of Crowley and the crimson elixir was great, but the first 3 chapters altering the original series didn't quite make any sense to me. I mean what for? Altering the original series just makes it unable to follow the anime series. Why didn't they cut the first chapters and make the game into like a special episode of FMA? It could make like an "Unscene" episode to add to the 51 anime series. I like the game, but the first part of the storyline just ruined it for me.
