  • Excerpt: Astro Boy has been praised by reviewers since its release in 2003. Another gem from Treasure, Astro Boy proves there is still some enjoyment to find in the 2D action gaming arena. A shooter/platformer in the vein of Gunstar Heroes, Astro Boy brings Osamu Tezuka's world reknowned character to life on the Game Boy Advance. We rarely get Astro Boy releases in the US, which is another testament to just how good this game is.
  • Pros: ups: Character building, Tezuka's famous characters, art, colorful, well animated.
  • Cons: downs: Some US gamers won't be familiar with the source material.

Astro Boy: Omega Factor – Review

  • Excerpt: Soon after turning the power on, I'm bombarded by trademarks. Licensed by Nintendo. Sony Pictures Consumer Products. Sony Pictures Television. Tezuka Productions. Presented by SEGA. Created by Hitmaker. In cooperation with Treasure Video Games. Now, as a critic, it's sometimes difficult to ascertain precisely who is responsible for the quality (or otherwise) of a videogame, and it's often irrelevant anyway.

  • Excerpt: Tezuka Osamu's Astro Boy has to be one of the greatest anime magnum opuses ever created. I have long loved the entire series, but with the news that two Astro Boy games were announced, I felt unsettled with the possibility that the games might bring shame to my beloved classic. Just look at the Dragonball series. Over 30 games, yet only few deserve the title of being a Dragonball game.

Astro Boy: Omega Factor Review

VideoGamer.com
6 October 2005
  • Excerpt: The PlayStation 2 version of Astro Boy showed us exactly what most gamers expect from a licensed game: unfinished, glitchy, uninspired - just downright poor . Now we face the GBA game with the same air of trepidation, but we look at the game's box and what do we see? A very small black area with the word 'Treasure' in it. There - it's been sold to a fair few of you already, hasn't it? The name of Treasure alone really is enough to sell a game to a number of people.

Portable Review
6 June 2005
  • Excerpt: To tell you the truth, I had never seen anything branded with Astro Boy until a few years ago. Even now, I really know nothing about the series except that it’s a Japanese cartoon starring a robotic, young looking boy called, Astro Boy. That’s my background on Astro Boy, and as you can see, I know nothing about it. I don’t quite know what attracted me to the game, I was in need of a new challenge and from word of mouth, and I heard this game was pretty awesome.

Nintendo World Report
19 September 2004
  • Summary: Don’t judge a game by its half-naked hero.
  • Pros: Long (for a Treasure game) with high replayability, Quality brawler and shooter styles of gameplay and control, Unexpected attention to plot and franchise integration
  • Cons: Mild slowdown, Moments of Engrish (“Are you going to standing against me?”), Mostly unremarkable sound effects, Ugly 2x and 3x pixel scaling for larger versions of enemies
