Summary: Ordinarily I do computer game reviews, but I picked this up for my brother for Christmas so I figured I'd give this a whirl. "Robotech" was a 3-part anime feature from the mid-eighties that chronicled the events of the Robotech Wars. This game covers the area of Book One, or the Macross Saga. The show itself was patched together from 3 different Japanese cartoons that had nothing in common, other than they were the product of the same Japanese publishing house.
Summary: Back in the spring of 1985, I remember seeing the first episode of this new animated series called Robotech. From that moment I've been hooked on the series ( since the New Haven Public Schools couldn't serve up anything near as compelling I guess it was fate). Now for the Playstation 2, TDK has taken the Robotech licence and delivered a very faithful rendition of the animated series for the PS2.
Summary: this game is everything i wanted and more. even though you cant play as the people in the show it is very good and has the right amount of dificulty to make it intresting. but the games replay vallue is low( for me ). that is probably why is is long. it has a huge amount of missions and diferent bots to soot the mision youare on. I'm out. POOOOUND IT!!!
Summary: Robotech Battlecry does justice to the show. The cartoon was great and so is this game. Playing as a pilot in the Wolf squad instead of being one of the main show characters was a nice touch. The game follows the story well and eventually goes off into its' own senario. You also meet some familiar faces here and there. The gameplay is what makes this game stand out. You have three modes to operate and each serves a different function.
Summary: If you're a Robotech nut, a shoot 'em up fan or just a variety gamer, this is something you don't want to miss. An action, challenge filled, firefight. Revolving around the Robotech Macross Saga, you play a Veritech pilot during the first two Robotech Wars. Through the game, you encounter characters and events of the memorable series, which the plot and gameplay largely remains loyal to.
Summary: This game was everything I hoped it would be. Remember when we were kids and we rushed home to watch this show? I know I was enthralled by the story and fascinated by the mecha. Now I can play this game and I feel like I am part of the story. I like that you aren't playing one of the main characters. It makes it seem like this your part in the saga. If you always wanted to fly a veritech and fight for the RDF this is it!
Summary: this game was ... i can think of a word to describe it. It had great graphics, cool game play, and on top of that it has a TV show counterpart to get it more fans. This game has lodes of things to do, collect badges, gain ranks, and 2 player mode. If you love Mechwarrior youll love this game.
Summary: I couldn't get through some levels. I guess I am getting old and impatient. The surprising level was the ace alien fighter. One on One. It flies past you every 2 to 5 seconds. Doesn't stand still to allow you to retaliate, fight back. Almost impossible to beat it, until I figured out to hide, and then ambush it. The Tension was real, Failure was not an option. I will give it five stars if I could play someone One on One, via internet or not.
Summary: Ok I know many out there what the guts of a review spelled out in plain english so here goes; Pros: If you are a robotech fan you will love this game. You are able to use all functions for the veritech (battliod, guardian, and fighter) no matter what map you are on. Graphics and the feeling of finally getting to fly a Veritech make it a must for any robotech fan. You get to even fly missions with Rick hunter and Roy Folker.
