I knew this game would suck. The anime sucks, so obviously the game would to. Why the hell...would a great publisher like Square-Enix, make such an inferior and crappy product such as this peice of shit in a PS2 case?
Because They know that all you gullible anime fans and FMA fanboys/girls would buy it just because. All they have to do is go half ass with this game, and make as much as they would with any other game. They obviously don't care about you, the anime/game consumer. If they did, they would of put in some actual effort into this. But they didn't. They spent not alot of effort and even less money and time to make it. Lets look at the statistics shall we?
Average $ to make a game - $500,000*
Average $ to make an awesome game - $1,000,000*
Average $ to make a crappy game - $200,000*
$ to make FMA Broken Angel - $5.63**
The playability is just abysmal. It's so dull and repetitive that I don't know why anyone would go for more than a 1 hour session. The game starts off crap and goes down from there.
This should be a lesson to all you anime fans. Just because your favorite anime comes to a game, doesn't mean you should feel obligated to buy it.
And come on...give decent scores. You're not kidding anyone when you give it only an average score. Give a score that a game of this caliber diserves, a 0/10.
* = not actual statistics.
** = not actual statistics, but very accurate ones.
