Split-screen.com: "Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, the re-envisioning of Hiromu Arakawa's epic steam-punk manga, kickstarted this past Sunday. In a way, it represents several things: A fresh new start. A chance to remain faithful to the brilliance of not only the source but the quality of the previous adaptation. Square-Enix could very well take this as an indicator of one of the few good things it's done lately (the games side of this trend being Star Ocean: The Last Hope). Going through it's production history, it's easy to see where it began faltering, especially in it's Final Fantasy franchise. When a perpetual turning point is seen, a new property that invigorates fans and gives hope, the company's history of risks becomes more pronounced. What becomes the fate of said property - Final Fantasy Versus XIII - when it's in the hands of both Tetsuya Nomura, Square-Enix's greatest benefactor since Hironobu Sakaguchi, and team members responsible for the mediocrity of recent Final Fantasy titles?"
