wow! about the time i thought this game would end another part started up. i really like playing the long long rpg games. my husband really can't see the pleasure i get from these games. i have 5 kids, 10 grandkids and 1 great grandson. when i play these games i go to another world alone. this game is amazing. i love the synthesising of items. this is my 5th game of this kind. i liked the freedom to roam and pick the jobs you want to do. i recommend it highly. you never know what a game is like before you buy it, but i was not disappointed. so far i have played over 90 hours and am on the final scenerio. thanks nis america!

Overall this is the best JRPG I have ever played.

The most defining characteristic of this game has to be its graphic. As the last RPG released on the PS 2, it also has the best graphic. Sprites are sharp and beautifully drawn, are much better than Ars Tonelico 2. The battle animation is excellent, with high quality art work and battle animation. Most of the attacks, both special and normal, are flashy and fun to look at. They never get boring, I replay the game sometime just to look at them.

Bad music can easily ruin good graphic. Fortunately that is not the case here. Music is catchy and very good, and match the game well. Near the end of the game there are NPCs that let you play any game music like a jukebox and also customize your battle music to something else if you like. Similar to the graphic, I never got bored to listening to them. Sometimes I would open the game up to listen to the music.

The game play are broken up by week. Each week you can do class assignment, character quest, or main story. The quests are pretty linear and not very sand box. It is less like romancing saga and more like final fantasy. The tutorials are awesome, you won't ever get lost and not know what to do. There are some grinding, but not too bad, as you progress in the game, you will gain the ability to automate grinding setting up delegation in your alchemy guild. So as you finish each quest, in addition to the quest reward, you get bonus free exp or alchemy ingredients, depending on what you ask your team to do.

Now the story. I think the game tried but failed to present a melodramatic story, but it doesn't matter, you will enjoy it any way, because it is laced with layer and layer of humor / funny episode.

Mana Khenia 2 is an excellent sequel to NISA hit jrpg Mana Khemia. This is a typical Gust game with Japanese influence written all over it. If turn base combat and photo still cut scene's are not your type of game than this is not for you. But if you are into the pixel style graphics, more character driven plot and have the patience to farm and gather ingredients for alchemy equipment and items than look no further this is the game for you. The over all plot for this game is very simple and strait no big surprises but the character's in this game and the interaction with this game is truly outstanding. Just like the first game you have a calender system and your choices can affect the outcome of the game. What is a great addition to this game is the inclusion of a second lead character. Unlike other game's where the two lead characters share the same story line this game give each protagonist there own separate story making replayability a must. The protagonist do interact with each other within there own story lines so when you go through your second play through you get a sense on completion. This was one of the last game to be released on the PS2 and what a gem of a game a must have for any jrpg fan.

To be fair I love all Gust games, so this one is no exception. It has typical Gust brand humor and gameplay, but also features a lot more content that forces you to play the game twice (as both main characters) to get the full picture and real ending. Though the cool part is that the story varies because of it and you actually enjoy both breakthroughs. The characters are MOSTLY lovable, with the exception of a few oddballs. But it's a great story worthy of adding to your collection.

If you like this game, you should give other gust games a try. Ones such as Ar Tonelico 1/2 or Atelier Iris 1/2/3. This is not a direct sequel to Mana Khemia 1, but it does feature some familiar (and a few years older) faces. So don't be sad if you can't play as any of your favorite characters from MK1. Mechanics and gameplay remain nearly the same too. Also, not everyone has their own mana anymore. So things aren't exactly the same.

Overall really enjoyable.

Note: From the original review, I've changed my rating to a 4/5 from a 3. After dedicating a lot (tens of hours) of extra play into it, some of the more quirky and technical aspects of the game pieced themselves together. This further supports my review title, however.

In the dying years of the PS2, the English market has finally been seeing a number of small-company Japanese RPG games that often play to niche markets. Generally simplified as "JRPGs", this is both an adored and loathed term in the video game universe. How do you define one? "It looks animated" is nice and vague, but works. For the most part, you either like them or you don't. Some games have more popular appeal (like the Disgaea or Persona series), but there are dozens of essentially unknown games floating about for the hardcore fan to enjoy. This game, despite some attempts at originality, simply can't find its way out of the grab bag of JRPGs.

Characters? Story? Only so much can be expected. As with many JRPGs we have a high school type of setting, and characters are variably intelligent or mature in a variety you'd normally expect at that age. It can be very frustrating to see people complain about characters without understanding that a lot are just deliberately placed there as a generic role or stereotype fillers. To try to offer a different spin, Fall of Alchemy actually has two different plotlines that let you pick which main character you'd like to be before starting. Sadly the selections are terribly unbalanced, with the male protagonist angle of fighter and boytoy Raze offering a much better experience. Either direction you take, you're confined into the same environment by your school and the "main" plot events and story characters are shared between both.
