3.5; when destruction looks its prettiest

Cloud "...", Amazon

  • Summary: Metal Gear Solid games were always fun to watch while playing them was pretty fun too but they always felt more like interactive movies with a huge emphasis on story rather than gameplay. On the other hand, Zone of the Enders is kind of the opposite: it's got a story, sure, but the bulk of it is centered around you and your mech smashing things up. However, the game suffers from serious nagging issues that prevents from being a stellar release.

Short on game play

  • Summary: All of the reviews praising the graphics and game control are dead on....however, I gave 3 stars because this game follows the increasingly disturbing trend of short game play. The game was over after about only 5 true hours of game play (some previews had promised up to 10--this is a vast overestimate). If you enjoyed the first version then you will probably enjoy this one. But be warned, this is a very short game--not worth the price(my advice, rent it or buy it used).

beautiful and fast, but repetitive

  • Summary: I can't say that I completely share the enthusiasm of other reviewers... ZONE OF THE ENDERS 2 is a good game with beautiful, stylized graphics. It's fast, with lots of combat action and gorgeous special effects. Unfortunately, I find the combat to be repetitive and somewhat obvious. I don't think the story is great. It's convoluted and choppy, and the constant interruption of anime cinematics gets aggravating. There's a lot of watching in this game..
