Metal Saga

RPG LAND

  • Excerpt: It all began in 1991, with an NES game entitled Metal Max . Never released stateside, this game spawned a sequel for the SNES in 1993, which also fell into the pit of non-localization. Finally, in 2006, the series was resurrected for the PlayStation 2 in the form of Metal Saga , which finally spoke English for the first time, thanks to Atlus. The future is bleak.

Metal Saga

Just RPG
29 November 2006
  • Excerpt: When I first heard about Atlus’s Metal Saga, I thought the game looked like an interesting RPG and thought the story sounded rather fun. Now that the game has been released, I was very excited and couldn’t wait to slide it into the Playstation 2 and give it a go. However, what I found with Metal Saga was quite different than I had anticipated.

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for an RPG to pass the time with while you're waiting for the next great adventure Metal Saga is definitely worth looking at. As things stand I can only see hardcore RPG fans looking for something different to get the most out of it.

  • Excerpt: It was apparent from the start that Metal Saga was not made for players like me. Though claiming to be open-ended, the game strongly encourages the path of adventure. "Settling down" is anathema. At the game's startup, before you even have the chance to save, your mother asks if you really want to be a hunter or if you'd like to work as a mechanic. I thought I'd impress my mom by being a mechanic.

Metal Saga Review

  • Summary: Metal Saga has the makings of a good role-playing game, but there's nothing to tie it all together.
  • Pros: Lots of vehicles to collect and customize, Postapocalyptic scavenger theme is pretty cool, Bizarre sense of humor
  • Cons: Lack of story results in aimless wandering with no sense of progression, Dated graphics

Metal Saga

Project COE

  • Conclusion: One interesting aspect of Metal Saga is that it has a unique appeal to it. Even though it’s not the most entertaining RPG out right now, it’ll have a following all of its own. It has next to no replay value thanks to the way the game is setup but again, it has humor and a distinct style. To complete the full main quest it’ll take you around 40 hours give or take your experience level with RPGs. If you’re a fan of open ended RPGs like Romancing Saga than this is for you.
