REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST™ and the Broken Angel brings a fresh new action RPG to this year’s Square Enix lineup. Based on a wildly popular Japanese animation and comic of the same name, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST and the Broken Angel traces the journey of two brothers on a life-changing quest.

Edward Elric is a genius alchemist. He and his younger brother Alphonse tried to raise their mother from the dead, a forbidden act that cost Ed his left leg and Al his entire body. Immediately after the accident, Ed was able to sacrifice his right arm to save Alphonse’s soul and transplant it into a suit of armor. The action begins as the two brothers are headed toward Central City in search of the “Philosopher’s Stone,” the only object that can return them to their natural states.

Ed and Al are on the train with their bodyguard Armstrong, when a sudden explosion rocks the car, and a radical group hijacks the train. The three of them are soon embroiled in an all-out brawl against the hijackers. But Edward has more than a few tricks up his sleeve with a variety of alchemy skills; he can transmute everyday objects into powerful weapons. With nimble footwork and combo attacks, the trio soon overtakes the hijackers and searches the rest of the train for the leader.

The hijackers are all falsely accused military men who are escaping to a town named Hiessgart. When the brothers corner the hijackers’ boss on the roof of the train, a brawl ensues and a shocking new twist is revealed, sending the brothers askew on a different adventure.

The key to gameplay is transmuting objects that litter the landscape – everything from trees to trashcans – into powerful weapons. Players can also order Alphonse to protect Edward or tackle nearby enemies.
