Custom Robo (GameCube) Review

Custom Robo (GC)

ccgr.org
30 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Custom Robo is a popular Nintendo-developed series that had its genesis on the Nintendo 64. Now Nintendo has brought this series to the GameCube. The game is more or less an arena-style action game with some role-playing elements thrown in. The end result is a game that is short, repetitive, and at times mind-numbing. But it also has its moments of fun, and is worth the price of a rental if you happen to spot it.

Custom Robo – Review

GameCritics.com
1 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Game companies know when their games suck. They have armies of play testers and hordes of focus groups that give them plenty of advance warning. And yet each year hundreds of uninspired and below average games unassumingly occupy store shelves; perhaps as a desperate attempt to recoup costs or get a fat tax write-off. Some consumers will take the bait and get suckered into buying them because of familiarity with the genre or the company that releases it.

Custom Robo

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: The real attraction – as the title might indicate – is outfitting your robot with custom parts. To CR’s credit, there are a lot of parts to acquire. For starters there are 50+ guns available. With new bodies, legs, pods, and bombs available (each rated with different stat types) you really have a free hand with what kind of robot you want to construct. This part of CR is fun for everyone as it’s less sweet and more focused on strategy and cool robots.

  • Excerpt: What do you get when you combine a lackluster Role Playing Game with a shallow Action game with up to four robots fighting each other at once? You get the latest title from Nintendo and developer Noise--Custom Robo. This GameCube title is the first incarnation of the series in the US. However, Custom Robo is the third version in the series.

The Next Level
2 June 2004
  • Excerpt: I guess it's impossible to avoid pointing out the obvious Pokémon -esque reference, so I'll just get that out of the way. Custom Robo uses the same RPG model as seen in Pokémon Colosseum . You'll lead your character throughout the 3D overworld, conversing with numerous townsfolk -- but it's all for naught. The real hitch lies in the melee combat and man, is it enjoyable. Everyone likes throwing down with robots, right?

Custom Robo Review

GameSpot
19 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Robot-on-robot violence seems to be at an all-time high these days, but the trend is nothing new. From 2D robot fighting like Cyborg Justice to 3D robot gunfights like Virtual On, robots have been beating the crap out of other robots for decades. Nintendo is contributing to this hot-button election year issue with Custom Robo, an action RPG of sorts that allows you to customize little robots and bring them into real-time battle.
  • Pros: N/A
