Good game.

Danne Valeroa, Amazon

  • Summary: For $10 brand new its a blast. Very unique game that reminds me of sega Saturn's Virtual On. Aside from that prepared to find every anime trope ever created.

Lag Speed Robot Action!

Snaksolid, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: (Update) Alright a patch was FINALLY released for the PS3 version of this game. There's just one problem, the first game still runs very clunky. The Second game in the collection now finally runs as good as the original on the PS2 did (or at the very least close enough that you won't really care. Now the game actually only seems to slow down in the exact same places it did in the original game as far as I can tell so far.

Awesome game, but Limited Edition not worth an extra $20

Shaun, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: LIMITED EDITION: I was expecting a lot more out of this Limited Edition. The Artbook is something only a little bit better quality than the Metal Gear Solid 4 artbook I got for free from reserving MGS4 from Gamestop so many years ago (Same quality you'd find in a $15 strategy guide, a lot less pages though). Then the CD is just...I wouldn't call it horrible, but it's pretty bad.

Zone of the End

N. Black, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: I was excited for this and when I got it not so much. The transfer or HD remake was done poorly by a third party studio, Konami let this fly which is unacceptable. The PS3 version has some low frame rate, while it does play better than the PS2 version why they couldn't get this working is beyond me. So the game is playable but not silky smooth like you hope it would be. The packaging on the collectors edition is also poor.

The soundtrack is meh

Digital_Anomoly, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: I just wanted to note to anyone buying this for the soundtrack: it's eight songs that are all remixed. If you like dubstep, then you'll like the remixed soundtrack. I was hoping the remixes were just going to be slight edits, but some of these songs...

A great series, a sub-par HD transfer

E. Luna "FPS Connoisseur", Amazon
2 November 2012
  • Summary: Having played through ZOE one, and currently playing ZOE 2 I am very surprised to find that this game slows down quite a bit during intense fighting sessions. It is apparent that High Voltage games did not capitalize on the opportunity to give themselves a good name by giving us a good HD transfer. I still love these two games, and I am still having fun playing them, but it just seems like a wasted opportunity. The cut scenes in ZOE 1 look pretty bad.

Add three stars to my score if this ever gets patched (UPDATE: Read note at bottom)

  • Summary: Make no mistake, I love the Zone of the Enders games. Next to Virtual On and the newer Armored Cores, they are some of the most fast, fluid and intense mecha games ever created, with the added bonus of a compelling sci-fi narrative masterfully crafted by Hideo Kojima. So why do I award this "HD remastered" collection of the two PS2 ZOE games one star? Next to the dire Silent Hill HD, this is one of the sloppiest HD collections yet released.

Best for nostalgia

Rothgard, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: As a re-release, this game is really only best for those who have played it before. I've played games for about 25 years, and I understand the effect of nostalgia. The story is extremely cliched. Coming back to this game after roughly 10 years - it's amazing and great, but trying this game for the first time, it's a bit of a chore.

When I grow up, I wanna be a ♏echwarrior!

Alexander Wayne "Alex", amazon.co.uk
27 April 2013
  • Summary: This review is, as you can see very long. If you can't be arsed to read the whole thing I've split up certain sections, so look for standalone titles like the one below this phrase "The story" if you want to read about specific details The Story (No spoilers) These humanoid like machines you take on the control of almost have an eerie kind of feeling about them as they take on their own personality with their A.I and carves an identity inspired by their pilot.

Great games but pity about the collection

Darren, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: Fantastic games especially ZOE2 but the performance issues take away from the fast combat that this game does so well. Even the VR training missions have terrible slowdown which is unacceptable given that konamis site states that the collection is in 60FPS! "Additionally, the framerate has been upped to 60 fps from the original 30". [...] I would avoid or wait until a patch comes out to sort out these issues because they take away from two of the best games on the PS2!
