Product Description

Scrapland is 3rd-person action/adventure in a robot city where mysteriuous "deaths" are occuring. The game combines quirky humor and great combat for an incredible science-fiction adventure unlike anything you've seen before! You play D-Tritus, a robot who's just started working as a journalist in the all-robot city of Chimera. Murders are rare in Chimera; the Great Database stores everyone's design, essentially "resurrecting" them when they're destroyed. But a serial killer has been deleting the victims' details before destroying them, and D-Tritus is out to find out who, and why. Fantastic level designs will thrill you as you explore a world inside a world -- Chimera is full of surprises and unexpected pleasures Fun multiplayer action as you engage in arena combat to compete in wild races through the city

From the Manufacturer

Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of play that capitalizes on the success of games like GTA3, yet takes the action one step further. --Executive Producer American McGee

Game Overview

SCRAPLAND is a third-person action-adventure game set in a stunningly beautiful and futuristic world occupied by an amazing array of robotic characters. The play experience is driven by a solidly engaging, sometimes humorous adventure narrative. The game mechanic combines proven GTA3 style emergent action with an immersive storyline, diversity of player actions, and complete freedom of movement through the world. Throughout the game the player can: transform into any of 15 character types inheriting unique abilities, build and pilot ships with hundreds of permutations, engage in explosive combat, participate in life-on-the-line races, and freely explore a truly dynamic and living world.

Key Features

  • A spectacular science fiction world: Scrapland presents the player with one of the most highly detailed and visually stunning video game worlds ever seen. From the luminous skyscrapers of Downtown to the treacherous caverns of the Scrapyard, this is world that begs to be explored.

  • Combat and racing with customizable gunships: Steal, borrow, build, and fly any and every type of space ship you can imagine. Literally hundreds of different varieties of ships are at your disposal in the world of Scrapland. Outfit your ship with the most powerful engines, most devastating weapons, and then test it in life-or-death combat against other pilots.

  • Dynamic character switching: Scrapland offers unparalleled freedom to play however, and as whomever, you wish. Instantly and seamlessly switch between over a dozen character types, automatically inheriting new abilities. Gain unfettered access to off-limit areas, deceive foes, and employ unique powers at the click of a button.

  • Multiplayer mayhem: Few games deliver such a spectacular single player experience and integrate hardcore multiplayer mayhem like Scrapland. Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and other multiplayer modes allow you to import ships built in single player to online arenas.

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    This in regards to Mobbs, who posted a "discount bin" as his profound review for the game.

    The game has richer textures and more more detail than his previous work, Alice. Maybe a large part of that is because Alice delved into the dark and mysterious, whereas Scrapland is all about androids living in space, thus all the colorful lights et al.

    As quoting from American McGee's site, he states he is working as an Executive Producer for the game. Maybe Mercury Steam "asked" him not to divulge the fact that he wasnt the lead designer or creator of this game because apparently he is already known in the RPG gaming industry, being popular has its benefits especially in the advertising industry. Popularity also is refined through having a reputation of being a good game developer, which is vital

    in this field.

    The game runs on a smooth environment where the user can explore different areas in the game, which is very popular in gamers nowadays and quite honestly is what gamers have been looking for in a very long time. The ability to explore areas in a game has not been developed by a lot of companies.

    I give this game a rating of 5 stars because it has humour and sharp wit, the effects are non-predictable and overall the game deserves more credit than it gets from its lowly detractors.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful game - Horrible controls December 12, 2005
    By jocasta
    Platform for Display:PC
    What a shame, The story seems great, the graphics are amazing, everything was extremely well thought out - except for the controls - (PC version) for some reason the X axis is extremely choppy - I tried to change the sensitivity but it did not help at all. Also you can invert the mous but its universal so it inverts for both ship and character - this is a problem if you play one way on the ship and another with a person - A real shame - could have been one of the great 3rd person games but is barely playable due to the controls.

    5.0 out of 5 stars OMG TERRIFIC!!! November 22, 2004

    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Scrapland. Congratulations on a tremendous effort. The game seamlessly blends together graphic quality of Half Life 2 with the gameplay and general replayability of GTA. I know that Scrapland is compared to GTA everywhere! but its true, Scrapland is just as good set in space, with more weapons, more characters and more bang for you buck. The game allowed me to fly ships as well as walk on foot, making the Scrapland world enless to explore and come across the next thing the game throws at you. To sum up this rambling review, i rate this game 10/10 terrific and a definite for those fellow gamers out there looking for something unique and different

    2.0 out of 5 stars Beutiful, but bad. January 27, 2005
    By Redeyes
    Platform for Display:PC
    First of all I want to say that though I was disappointed with this game, it is not ALL bad, well at least not MOSTLY bad, well ok its pretty bad now that I think about it.

    When I first saw scrapland it looked like a fun adventure game in the style of Beyond Good And Evil (HIGHLY recommendable), with an intriguing storyline, unique gameplay, and cute characters reminiscent to the still-upcoming film ROBOTS.

    And so I use some of my still warm Christmas money to purchase a copy, gleefully taking it home and ogling over the excellent manual (hi-gloss, full color pages!). Popping it in the DVD-ROM drive at home I admire the short EULA that is understandable enough, and install it. Starting up the game I am greeted by several cute beginning videos and an awesome 3D-menu depicting the asteroid that your adventures surround. a short load time later (and indeed it is short loads) an ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL environment greets me, one so good that I couldn't believe it was playing sooo smoothly on my machine (celeron 1.2 Ghz, 256 megs of RAM, a dvd-rom drive and a Nvidea Geforce 5700 LE). However this is where what would be, up to this point, just about THE perfect game ends. Beginning the story a loveable, goofy, somewhat Jar-Jar-ish robot greets you, showing you the sights and his hard earned (and still being paid for) spaceship. soon after this, you are told to take-over your friends body! Essentially stealing it (because nobody dies in the game, you just have to pay for more "lives") from someone who has done nothing but befriend you. soon after your next order of business is to destroy several cops, both in ships and outside, later to cheat and steal, lie, etc. All completely without remorse or any morality at all. Done with complete innocents for all intensive purposes.
