I fell that I am honor-bound to warn any and gamers that may one day pick up this title, that this game is horrible. As I played through it I was graphically reminded of several old school ps1 games, which isn't always a good thing. Also it was way to easy if you made any weapons the enemies fell before you as if made from paper. Overall the game lack one very important element the raw emotional lives of the characters shown in the anime and manga, just harping on about Ed being short doesn't mean you get the humor in the series. Oh well lets hope one day the US will start to get some of the better anime games. (i.e. the 1st snes Sailor Moon game which trully rocked)

I hate reviews like this. This game was -BAD-. The bottom rung of guys at SquareEnix must have worked hard on this... or the top guys had a bender one weekend and this game was the result. I'll start with the worst part.
The Sound. Oh my... was this made on a Casio keyboard from 1975? It sounds like a bad .midi file or something from my old 16-bit gaming days... Cut scenes are fine. The rest? Obnoxious.
Controls are very basic and almost laughably simplistic.
Gameplay is weak and repetitive.
Level design is boring and lacking any meaningful detail.
