4.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best way to play the FMA:TCG June 27, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game for a few years, and I was kind of like Gen at first, I tried it out, got confused by the tutorial, and put it away. However, if you actually take some time to practice and play the game, it's really fun.

The main problem with the card game is that the controls are a little weird, however, once you get used to them, it flows pretty well, the AI provides a decent challenge, and the starter decks, while good, aren't so good that you can just breeze through the game.

There really isn't much to say about the gameplay, it's a card game. If you like Yugioh, Magic, Pokemon TCG, etc etc, you'll probably enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full Metal Trading Card December 12, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I Love this game as I do any other of the trading card games you have to master.I mean Full Metal Alchemist is great anyway if you like RPG,I have recently discovered the trading card ds games.
I mean most have tutorials and I have gotten stuck at 6% on almost all of my 125 DS games so I certainly am not a great gamer.Except DK jungle Climber 52% The 4th boss.
I think if you like trading card ds games you shouldn't skip this one.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I haven't played the collectible card game for FMA. I'm not even sure that one exists. If it does, perhaps people who are used to that game and have mastered its intricacies will get some enjoyment out of this DS game.

I spent 30 minutes going through the tutorials, played through the first fight in another 30, then ejected it in disgust and tossed it in the pile of games to sell used.

The game is complex and quite difficult to learn, with the manual and software tutorials not helping much at all. Sometimes, a complex play system can be rewarding and fun to learn and master. In this case, it feels like arbitrary self-punishment.

The controls are chaotically organized (L1 lets you view the details of the cards. R1 passes. Don't hit R1 on accident) and the card display only lets you see about a sixth of the 'table' at a time.

Given a choice between having to play this game for two more hours or having to do a hundred pushups in a single day, even the biggest FMA fan would probably opt for the pushups so that they could get back to spending time with the actual FMA story on print, video, or perhaps via any of the other and vastly superior video games.

Don't buy this game, and don't let your friends buy it.
