  • Excerpt: That's right—a nine. Loyal readers of the site may recall my less-than-favorable review of the original Zone Of The Enders back in 2001.

  • Excerpt: It’s safe to say that the original Zone of the Enders didn’t end up being the system seller that Konami and the press had hyped it up to be in the months before its release nearly two years ago. Let’s be frank, it was a disappointment.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner review

  • Conclusion: Another excellent, stylish, story-packed title from Kojima - but again a title that is just too short. We can hope for a longer sequel, but in the mean time, fans of anything action related should give this a go now.
