Zone of the Enders is a series that always surprise me. First, when I played the PS2 version of Z.o.E, I wasn't expecting much - I had bought it for the demo disk of Metal Gear Solid 2, as "everyone" did - but I was surprised to find a nice storythat pays homage to japanese mecha series such as Mobile Suit Gundam, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Macross/Robotech. It has fun gameplay, and as the title says, "high speed robot action". The game has a few flaws, but none that detracts much enjoyment of the overall package.

Then, I played Z.o.E the fist of mars for the Gameboy Advance (sadly not included with this collection) and was surprised again: now as a turn-based grid strategy rpg, but with the same enjoyment as the first Z.o.E. And finally, Z.o.E the 2nd runner, the best game in this series yet, and one of the greatest mecha action games ever, building a great game over the flaws of the previous one. Z.o.E the 2nd runner is one of the best mecha games, and one of the greatest games on the PS2.

And now you get to play it in HD, on the PS3/Xbox 360, with the intro animated by studio Sunrise - the one that animates one of the very series Z.o.E pays homage to: Mobile Suit Gundam. And to top it all, the HD collection inclused a demo disk for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It's funny, and a "tip of the hat" to the history of the series, as well as an almost trademarked "Kojima joke".

The HD collection has a few hiccups: slowdowns on certain events such as too many enemies on the screen (more noticeable on the PS3 version, I've heard), etc. but nothing too serious and just a minor nuisance. The first Z.o.E game hasn't aged too well I'm afraid with some pretty bad voice acting, and quite short, but it all pays when you reach The 2nd Runner.

While I never actually played these games when they first came out the HD collection series with its improved graphics and audio made this purchase a good choice. Overall it's a must have for mech fans as you have free roaming space for the most part in the battles and a pretty good storyline as well. Still for those unsure try seeing if you can try out a demo online or at a game store to see if this is one game you'd like to add to your library.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection for the Xbox360 is an amazing remastered videogame. Hideo Kojima graced us with a compelling storyline and galactic conflict. By going against the trope of pre-teen mech suited pilots and damsels in distress. The English-language dubbing of the cohesive dialogue between pilots Artificial intelligence units and other red shirt characters is entertaining to hear after all of these years. The creative and otherworldly designs of the mechas or aptly named Orbital Frames allows gamers to delve deeper into the mythos. Subtle improvements, like Dolby 5.0 sound, HD graphics and solid controls aid the game's funfactor.
While the game's instruction manual lacks much depth.

Implementation and Design (3/5)

The first game teaches you how to play through in-game tutorial. A feature that I think was well designed and implemented. The classic reluctant hero and bloodthirsty tyrant trope works well for the story. This was a foray into the psyche of a war beleaguered bystander and his struggle against the horrors of war. The post-cataclysm environmental stage design was ahead of its time. Orbital frames are sleek, fast, yet still posess massively destructive components. You will be reminded of their ferocity by screams of besieged innocents, and unseen colonists on the planetary civilization of Mars. Your fight for liberation will traverse the cosmos. Albeit with rather lonely looking loading screens in between scripted dialogue and combat manuvers.

Enough of the angst ridden story. Here's the rundown- Achievement support 5/5

I for one am appreciative of the Achievement support, and I am ready to take on the challenge of hopefully completing the game from start to finish.

Zone of the Enders is probably one of the most well-crafted games of its genre. Do you like giant robots? Do you like giant robots doing crazy, insane anime-esque fights? This collection lets you do that, by giving Z.O.E. 1 and 2 an HD reboot better suited for modern tvs than their original PS2 releases.

The controls are tight and well-executed, the updated graphics are simply gorgeous, the music is amazing, and the story is every bit as ridiculous and nonsensical as it's creators other works on the Metal Gear series.

This release also needs a bit of an history lesson for those purchasing for the first time. The original Zone of the Enders games contained a demo disk for the newest Metal Gear Solid. For a lot of Z.O.E. fans, they got into the series because they wanted the demo, and played the game because it looked fun. The fact that the HD collection contains a demo disk is simply a fan send-off from a creator that knows just -why- a lot of players got into Z.O.E. It's an in joke to be sure, but it's a good one.

This is a great game for those who enjoy fast pace gameplay. I'm a huge fan of giant robots, but I've generally been somewhat disappointed at how most games of the genre are fairly slow moving and generally. Not so is the case ZoE. Infinite Boost! which means dodging and moving at high speeds! They weren't exaggerating when they put "High Speed Combat" in the sub title of the game.

The storyline isn't the greatest I have seen, fairly typical stuff (I won't spoil it) The gameplay is really where this excels. Graphics are pretty awesome as well, though during the first game they did not update the cutscenes, as they are still using the older versions, but in the second game they have, and its the more important one out of the two, so its not a big blemish.

Multiplayer is pretty fun too. There's nothing quite like boosting around like crazy with a friend and attempting to hit the other while dodging the others attacks. It's fairly intuitive and simple gameplay, but very rewarding.

All in all:
Gameplay: 10/10
Graphics : 9/10
Storyline: 6/10
Multiplayer: 8/10
Replayability: 7/10

Overall Score: 9/10

A really fantastic game, give it a go!
