Product Description

Product Description

Choosing from an arsenal of 200 specialized parts you'll build your robo warrior and do battle in a virtual arena. Outfit your robo to suit your own style and strategy by selecting from bodies, legs, guns, bombs and homing pods. Then it's time to lock and load, and enter the holosseum. Play in Arcade/VGS Mode which includes single battle, tag battle, 2-on-2, 1-on-2 handicap, and 3-4 player battle royal, or play in Story Mode where you take on the role a young Robo Commander and join the city's rag-tag bounty hunter squad to fight crime.

From the Manufacturer

Custom Robo, the wildly popular action game of mechanized melee from Japan, hits the U.S. in May 2004. Get ready to enter a world of hyper-tech weapons, holosseums, and heavy-barrel battles. Custom Robo puts you in the pilot's seat of a state-of-the-art war machine in the not-too-distant future where crime and justice duke it out in virtual battlegrounds.

With the game's powerful, innovative customization, you can construct your robot from the ground up using an enormous arsenal of over 200 parts and weapons, from guns to bombs, robo models and homing pods. Many weapons are freely available on the market, but some--deadly and highly illegal--can only be acquired in secret robo gambling rooms and from the hands of crime syndicates.

Features:

  • Role-playing Tutorial: Join the Steel Hearts bounty hunter squad, fight criminals, unlock powerful new parts and learn all the tips and tricks to becoming the Robo Commander to beat
  • Near-limitless Customization: With over 50 guns, 30 bombs, 30 homing pods, and 30 robo models, you can build a robo that fits your style and strategy
  • Holosseums: These digital domains are home to more than pretty scenery. Watch out for lava pits, conveyor belts, and ice
  • Real-time Combat: No turn-based action here. Robo battles are not for the faint of heart.

Customizing stuff is, in general, a good thing for a video game. Whether it's just choosing armor in a standard RPG, or creating a character from scratch like in some wrestling games, it allows the player to be creative. In this game, creativity is used to blow stuff up. You can pick one of 34 robot types, then arm it with THREE weapons (the pod launches out of a backpack type thing). And shoes. Sure, there aren't that many types of shoes, but there are plenty of weapons. With tons of parts in each catagory (Body, guns, bombs, attack pods, and legs (shoes)), anyone can make their own unique gundam-esque warrior. My robot is a Splendor armed with an afterburner gun, geo trap bombs, and wall pods. Shoes? Ultimate type, if allowed. The AI makes it as fun in single player mode as it is in multiplayer. I would pay fifty dollars for this game. Well, no I wouldn't. I already have a copy.
P.S.
You may be interested in this game because of the cool preview you saw in Gamestop or wherever. This preview can be watched at any time if you buy this game, because it's the intro!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really fun game but could of been longer June 2, 2004
This is a really good game to get. The story line is boring at the begining but once you first hear about Rahu it gets much more interesting. There are two chapters in the story mode, the first one is a traditional story and the second one is a bunch of tourments to get the rest of the parts in the game. I wished the story was longer and it only took me 1 week to unlock all the parts and modes in the game. It also has a great multiplayer mode. It is a must own if you like to customize everything and like robots.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned RPG fun -Mech Style! May 19, 2004
By Andrew
This game is even better than I expected it to be. It was underrated by video game magazines, probably because it's kind of "old school". What I mean is that there are no voice actors, all the characters speak only in message boxes with pictures of their faces beside them showing various expressions; just like in Grandia. I think that's actually fun! Grandia (the first one) would have been better with no voice actors because the voices were bad!
In this game, you can customize your fighter from the body armor type to the sorts of weapons and legs, each giving you different abilities based on how you like to fight. I'll admit that I really got addicted to that sort of customization ever since Final Fantasy Tactics.
The story of this game impressed me too. All the characters are really fun, including the NPCs, and there's some great manga/anime style humor all throughout the game. The only thing that would have made the game better is if it were a little longer and the story were not as linear; but I could say the same thing about MOST RPGs!
I highly recommend Custom Robo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but has some flaws June 20, 2004
A Kid's Review
Custom robo is a great game, and is well worth getting!
The graphics are good, and the idea is good but there are flaws.
Though there are 200+ parts and 3500+ combos of robots you have to go unlock the parts in the short and rather boring story mode. The story is simple, your a teen and you are going to become a custom robo commander in the will of your father. to advance you beat a bad guy, talk to the peoson who rewards you for beating the guy, get the part, and go to sleep, and wake up the next day to do the same thing over and over again. Once you do beat the story mode and get the parts, you get to the good part, the battles, use the bodies, guns, bombs, jetpack, leg boosters, to make a robot you like. Battle itself looks simple at first, but looks can be deceving. you must use the stadium offencively and defenceively, some weopans are stronger, others faster, knock enemie robots down, or evenfloat above them and strike when the enemie is still. The stadiums are good and move around at times, some of them go up and down, many have hazards, some even are as creative and a play room with a choo choo train.
OVERALL
-gameplay- story 5 rest 9.5
-graphics- 6-9 out of 10
-options- (15 things to do) 10
-sound- 8
-customization- i mean come on! 3500+ possible combos that like 20 out of 10! A kid can make a cute robot, an adult can make a hell fighter, be creative!
-fun- 10
-plot- 6-8 its good
DONT LISTEN TO THOSE (...) WHO SAY THIS GAME IS HORRIBLE! THEY PROBABLY DONT EVEN HAVE A GAMECUBE! This game is well worth playing, rent it, if you dont like it then dont get it...
