GamesFirst!
25 February 2006
  • 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

The Next Level
8 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Unless you've been around awhile, grandpa, or you are really into this whole "Japan" thing, you might have no idea who Astro Boy is or why he's getting two games (as well as anime and manga revivals) here in the United States. Relatively unknown in the West, he's arguably the most famous of all of prolific creative genius Osamu Tezuka's creations. Though Tezuka's work is huge in Japan, you've probably never heard of any of it - but that's all going to change.

  • Conclusion: Don't worry though, Treasure has left behind plenty of reason to replay and experience these wonderful boss fights again. You'd want to play through again even without all the nifty unlockable extras that are available; the game is that good. First off though, the game's real ending remains hidden until you've trounced evil at least twice.

  • Conclusion: For some reason that I haven’t been able to figure out yet, Sega and Treasure have given us an Astro Boy game far better than we deserve. If you need an action game that isn’t a port or remake, this should be on the top of your list.

Astro Boy: Omega Factor review

  • Conclusion: A fun classic-style beat 'em up and side-scrolling shooter, divided into small enough sections that you can have quick plays when you have a small amount of free time, but also with a good plotline to tie it all together so that you don't feel like you're just playing a collection of small levels.

  • Conclusion: Astro Boy: Omega Factor verbindet auf vorbildliche Weise ein altmodisches, aber spaßiges Spielprinzip mit einer tollen Technik und modernen Erzählweise. Die liebevolle und unterhaltsame Story kann mindestens genauso gut fesseln wie das fulminante und kurzweilige Gameplay. Die Suche nach den NPC´s lässt einen auch nicht ruhen, bis man wirklich alle gefunden hat und das beste Ende gesehen hat.

  • Excerpt: Sega tente de nous faire oublier la décevante adaptation PS2 d'Astro Boy en nous proposant un épisode GBA autrement plus convaincant. Astro Boy : Omega Factor fleure bon le titre « old school » et réussit à nous faire passer un excellent moment en compagnie de quelques-uns des personnages mythiques de l'univers de Tezuka.

Astro c'est du gâteau !

  • Conclusion: Alors malgré sa durée de vie courte, ces quelques ralentissements, ces ennemis peu variés et des phases shoot’em up que l’on aurait aimé plus pêchu, je ne peux que vous conseiller de vous jeter sur Astro Boy : Testsuwan Atom pour l’efficacité de sa mise en scène, son gameplay bien huilé, son plaisir de jeu intense qui nous rappelle pourquoi nous aimons jouer aux jeux vidéo !

Astro Boy: Omega Factor - Test

Kri­nein
20 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Il y a de cela quelques semaines j'ai eu l'occasion de jouer en avant première au jeu Astro Boy sur PS2. Au bout de quelques minutes malheureusement, j'avais d'ores et déjà lâché la manette tellement je m'ennuyais. Pourtant, grand admirateur de Tezuka, j'ai décidé de remettre ça (que voulez-vous je suis obstiné) en m'attelant cette fois à son portage sur la GBA.
