Summary: I had done some research on this game prior to purchasing it. I had found that it was released in North America, despite being a BBC based product. When the game came in the mail, it was a PAL copy, not an NTSC copy as I had previously expected.
Excerpt: This game is basically the thrill and carnage from the briliant TV series transfered onto Playstation 2. When you get enough money(Which you earn through winning tournaments that happen in real life Robot Wars)you can buy ready-made Robot's such as Chaos 2 , Razor and Firestorm as well as others...
Pros: Many weapons and ready - built robots available .
Summary: I was very dissapointed with this game. Despite good graphics the gameplay is often unresponsive, jerky and un-realistic. There is no indication of when the fight may end, all of a sudden it just stops and says whether you won or lost.
Summary: This game is absolutely awful. It’s almost as if someone some kid sat down at a computer and started developing it. This game is simple propitiating off the back of the TV series. If you enjoy the series, don’t buy this game – it will only put you off Robot Wars for good.
Summary: You might think robot wars is a kids game but you would be wrong.I thought it would untill I played it and realised it takes skill that kids just wouldn't have. I started making a robot with my mate who is 16 and I found that I could make better ones than him and I am a lot younger than him.
Summary: I found it very difficult to create a machine. I felt the game was not user friendly and a waste of time. Very frustrating to make a machine, not being able to read the text (too small), never mind moving it around the battle ground. I'm sorry but this game is not good.
Summary: It seems like BBC Multimedia have thrown this game together with so little thought for gameplay that it's slightly insulting. The fight commentary bears no resemblance to the action on screen, the fights end abruptly and jerkily, with accompanying clickyness of sound, and all the fun of the TV...
