Summary: I'm the kind of person who doesn't complete many games. Persona 3 was my shining hour as i beat it completely and the game is a hefty 70 hours+. ZOE however, is one game that keeps me coming back again, and again, and again.Challenge: While Easy and Normal can be blown through without much trouble (other than a few tricky boss battles) and with a New Game+ using all sub weapons you are pretty much unbeatable. Hard Mode however, is a different story.
Summary: playing an adult charater does have an impact on how you feel about the game- due to the fact he shares his life support with jehuty you are in effect playing as jehuty! in gameplay, you don't get some weapons like snipe as you did in zoe1 and its geared more toward close range fighting- like in mgs3 you will be breaking you thumbs learning how to maximise your fighting aggression and how to avoid getting pummeled with out being squeemish about getting in there!
Summary: Let's face it...sequels to a game as good and as popular as Zone of the Enders, you would think, would be poor compared to the original, however...Second Runner doesn't disappoint in the slightest...with all the action and excitement of the first game, combined with anime style graphics, that are in game aswell as in the cut scenes make this, along with a truly excellent story-line make this a game to more than rival it's predecessor..
Summary: Massive Mech Fanboy here. This is the only game that really puts into motion how mech combat should be. Mech Warrior, Armoured Core, Any Gundam Game by Bandai, only Zone of the Enders does it right. And sadly, it seems to sit in the shadow of Kojima's other masterpiece Metal Gear Solid. Even with the wonders of the PS3, the graphics of this game still stand out. It's nothing short of spectacular. If you're worried about how it plays on a PS3, dont worry.
Summary: The original Zone of the Enders was (unfairly) most famous for housing a demo of the hotly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 2, lots of people bought the game with no real intention of playing it half as much as they intended to play 'Sons of Liberty', what they missed out on was an innovative but highly flawed game with a story that was below parr for producer Hideo Kojima.
Summary: a perfect sequal to a perfect game, there are very few fanatics of this game but for those of us who are swept away by the breathtaking battle frame robotic action can all agree there's nothing quite like it, after zoe was finished konami were unsure to release a sequal, but thank god they did, this game brings the justice it so much deserves, forget solid snake, the action in this game is fast and furious and fantastic and to add to it all i still get shivers down my...
Summary: All the reviews on this site are spot on. The graphics are amazing and the game play is on a level way above that of most games. If you have played the first game and this has put you off this one then you will be missing out. Consider the first game as a demo and this as the finished, polished and much improved on game that should be in your collection.
Summary: This game is one of the best action games I have played in a long time. There are so many improvements over the original...amazing graphics, great music, entertaining storyline - it deserves to be owned by anyone who considers themselves a serious gamer!
