The second North American PS2 game based on the Fullmetal Alchemist anime series, Curse of the Crimson Elixir follows an original storyline designed to complement the television adventures of the two young Elric brothers. Edward is a precocious, maimed alchemist, and Alphonse's human soul resides in the shell of a hulking mechanical man. As in Square-Enix's earlier Broken Angel, this game features cel-shaded graphics and 3D platform-style combat, for which players can use Edward's powers of transmutation to create new, effective weaponry. The boys have been sent to Siam-Sid, in the ruins of the capital city of Lebis, where they must investigate disturbing stories about disappearing people and strange monsters. Throughout the adventure, players take the role of Edward, who is supported in combat and exploration by the computer-controlled Alphonse. Several other major and minor Fullmetal Alchemist characters appear in the game, all voiced by the actors who portray them in the television series. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
