Excerpt: About a hundred years ago I bought my son the original Gun Griffon for his Saga Saturn. ( Yes some of us made that massive mistake too!) Well I couldn't put it down! At two, three, four oclock in a morning you'd find me glued to the screen turning reble tanks and mech walkers in to searing chunks of dissmembered armour. I became obsessive, reclusive, unshaven and addicted to this game. The graphics, story line, game play and general performance were fantastic.
Excerpt: The Japanese seem to think that, in the future, wars will be fought with giant metal robots, called mechs. Gungriffon Blaze is another in the seemingly long line of Mech games available for Sony’s two machines. This time the action takes place on the Playstation 2, making the most of the graphics of this platform. The game is a sequel to an old Saturn favorite that involved a third world war with the world split into different factions, all vying for land and resources.
Pros: Lots of metal action and a nice mix of missions
Excerpt: There are three types of game that are bound to get Japanese gamers rushing to the stores. The first is any title featuring young ladies in school uniforms, the second is games featuring giant robots and the third is any title that has players performing the most mundane of jobs - like driving a bus. Gungriffon Blaze doesn't feature schoolgirls or buses and lands firmly in the big- robot-blowing-the-hell-out-of-everything style of game.
Pros: Fast action, Good Graphics, Lots of bad - guys, Varied missions
Cons: Bad Controls, Too Few Missions, Flying is Rubbish
