One of the great mech games
on September 7, 2016
Great collection of 2 ps2 games, that was released on xbox 360 and ps3. I chose to go with the 360 version instead of the ps3 for 2 reasons. The 360 version came up on here for 2 bucks plus shipping. I've also heard the ps3 version has low down issues. I can't confirm this for sure, but I know the 360 doesn't suffer from this.
These are 2 great mech games. The graphics look slick in hd and hold up pretty well after all these years. Dark futuristic stylized anime graphics, the second game especially holds up well. I think this is an unjustly overlooked game. Yes it can get repetitive but most video games do.The second game is the better of the 2 superior in every way but the first is still worth playing.
The controls are smooth they work very well. Far away shoots with the option to use a charge shot, close up is melee sword combat with charge attacks. Analog moves your mech around while Y ascends and A descends. It's very streamlined works well.
The sound is good not great. The english voice work is good no better or worse than a typical anime. The music is more of an background thing with drum machine loops and a faint techno sound that picks up when combat.
If you love Mech games you'll love this game.
