I think this game was pretty good although there are some thing it sould use work on. I think this game should've had more adventure and RPG aspects. Of course it has a leveling and experience system, but it could use maybe a shop, non-level oriented upgrades, and perhaps a free roaming around towns.
When I originally got this game, I was thrilled. It started off with a good tutorial that didn't have to be separate from the actual game play. At first, the game seems great. You learn how to transmute items, work with Alphonse, make cool weapons, and how to fight and work with some cool combos. After that, nothing changed. I was expecting to be able to maybe learn new techniques with the transmuting, maybe more combos, but everything just stayed the same. Only your foes got harder. It has a good rpg system to level up your character, and a decent storyline. But after 6 hours (as far as I decided to go) you get really bored doing the same thing over and over. Make weapon, kill foe, run around, listen to talking, kill boss. Whoever made this game had the right idea, just should have put a little more work into it.
