Mana Khemia 2 impressions


I loved the first Mana Khemia, and I played the psp version................ yeah. Even with all the technical bugs and game crash, I enjoyed it a lot. So, I was pretty excited to play the second one, this time on PS2. It is actually a sequel based in the same universe, compared to the Atelier Iris series. In the package you get a somewhat big poster, and the soundtrack. Neat.

You get to go back to Al-Revis academy, years later. If you enjoyed your first trip, you're gonna love the little details. Old characters making a come back? Flay, OMG FLAY. Zeppel, teehee, he has a moustache now. Like the first game, you choose classes, you earn grades. You synthesize items to expand your grow book and with the fighting experience you gain you can level up based on what you have synthesized. It was a winning formula, it still is. The grow book is a lot simpler now. No need to scroll back and forth.

Combat wise, the system remains the same, but the looks have changed. It actually makes sense to me now, I dunno, the old card based system didn't sit right with me. There's surely more to it. I haven't played enough yet.

HELL YEAH, I WON................. a plant?

The gathering system changed. There wasn't much to it before, so adding depth is a good thing. But, a slot machine, really?

My impression so far is this : <3. You just wanna the game by the cheek like : "Daaaawwww, you're so adorable!". I fell in love with the details, the usual art style. It's a world I enjoyed before, and I won't mind going back. If you liked the first one, chances are you'll get this one. It's not for everyone. But I consider this game to be the last good PS2 RPG. Don't miss out on this one.

Thank you NISa.

About Nic128one of us since 8:54 AM on 02.27.2009

Hi all, introductry post. (Side blog edition)

I'm Nic128, 25 years old, gamer since 1991. Started with a SNES and worked my way through the generations. I got a NES after my SNES though, well, whatever.

I discovered this community a few years ago. I then realized, damn, there are civilized people that love and talk about video games. Awesome.

Here's what I currently own (Systems : History of purchases) :
- Gamecube
- PS2
- DS Lite
- PSP 2000
- Wii
- PS3
- Snes
- N64
- 3DS

Yes, I bought a Snes and N64 after my PS3. You know, nostalgia.

Games I love/loved the most :
1. Zelda : Ocarina of Time
2. Zelda : Twilight Princess
3. Tales of Symphonia
4. Golden Sun (1 and 2)
5. Zelda : Wind Waker
6. God of war
7. Tales of Vesperia
8. Resident Evil 3
9. Zelda : Majora's Mask
10. Banjo-Kazooie

I suck at anything FPS, RTS, MMO. Unless I'm playing with friends, I don't play competitive games. I get angry when I lose against better players.

Besides games, I love Fullmetal Alchemist, Table tennis...

And that's it.
