Excerpt: If I had the inclination, I could stitch together amazing similarities between Zone of the Enders: the Fist of Mars and Total Recall. Both take place mostly on Mars (Total Recall features a lot of people getting blown apart on Earth, but The Fist of Mars features a ship traveling to the planet from Earth being blown apart in the opening sequence - COINCIDENCE???) The plots of both detail attempts by Martian underground movements to free the planet.
Summary: This game had a lot of potential. Great graphics inspired mech models and a good story. The problem with it is the length. It takes about 8-12 hours to beat it. Also there was bad voice acting and no variety of enemies. There were only three different types of enemy mechs plus the bosses.
Summary: I thought this game wasn't even out yet. Why is it on the review list? I know, I'm reviewing a game that ain't even out yet. I'll come back and change my score when I actually get a chance to play this game. Promise.
Summary: The games just to dang short! I never thought it would be so dull. The only reason to get this game is for the Metal Gear Solid demo. Even the demo is a little...well...dull too. Its to short! ya thats it. Esad has seen better.
Summary: Dont get me wrong, this isnt a bad game, but it does get old. The game is somewhat repetitive in the missions and goals. Go around in your mech, fight the same evil mechs over and over, watch cut scenes, then do it all over again. The best feature is the MGS2 demo, althought that alone isnt worth 49.99. I reccomend that you rent this game first.
Summary: Like most of you did, I bought ZOE mainly for the MGS demo. However, I am also a mech fan (owning Virtual On for DC, and Armored Core 2 for PS2). What I found most disappointing in this game is the repetition in the fighting. An expanded combo system or a learning system in which new moves are learned and perfected as the game progresses would have been a nice addition. The added weapons although useful during certain sequences, I found to be unimpressive graphically.
Summary: So here's my beef with the game. When I first started playing the game it was awesome to me. But 2 days later I beat the frickin game. After that I got bored with it. Played it 3rd time through recently and now I'm flat out sick of it. I couldnt stand music that was pure hell to me and the sound was alright not great though. The game really left me hangin the games over before you know it, those of you who played it know what I'm talkin about.
Summary: Zone of the Enders (Z.O.E) is a futuristic shoot 'em up cum beat 'em up. You play a small boy who is orphaned and stranded from his friends on an planet that is subject to robot attack. Our hero stumbles across an empty orbital frame named Jehuty. Jehuty is a huge robot that your character operates from the inside with help from the on board computer - ADA. The game looks stunning. The futuristic back drops and huge robot characters look lush.
Excerpt: "Whilst I can appreciate that Zone of Enders has stunning graphics and a nice little story I couldn't escape the fact that it was just too boring. I felt that gameplay wise there just wasn't enough going on. It didn't have the intense feeling that a shoot-em-up should have. It's all just so repetitive and although there are plenty of nice weapons to use, you can get away with just bashing the buttons monotonously to get rid of the baddies. The ...
Summary: You’ve got to love giant robots. I mean, technically, physically and tactically they are completely implausible, but damn they look nice on screen. This is obviously what went through director Noriaki Okamura mind when conceiving Zone of the Enders, probably a result of prolonged exposure to shows like Gundam and Evangelion.
Pros: Storming combat engine and perfect control system
Cons: Terrible ending, Too short, occasionally dull, too few bosses
