Metal Arms: Glitch in the System Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Metal Arms is a great game, and while some people may have expected it, the game hit me by total surprise. The single-player experience is definitely worth playing through, and the multiplayer shocked me as I expected a quick add-on mode, but got so much more.
Excerpt: Metal Arms begins with the reassembly of Glitch, a lowly robot made up of scrap metal whose stature pails against his arch enemy, General Corrosive. Glitch can wield a multitude of chain machineguns and rocket launchers but his chief weapon is a tether that can be used to hijack enemy robots.
Excerpt: According to ESRB , this game contains: Strong Language, Violence Parents are mildly cautioned. While there's nary a drop of blood in the game (the violence is all robot-on-robot), the victims do let out very human cries before being destroyed.
Summary: While Metal Arms: Glitch In The System may not offer anything new, the elements it takes from other games are integrated into a focused style of gameplay, something that is often lacking when a game borrows heavily from others.
Pros: Brilliant, humorous story and voicing.
Cons: Average graphics and occasionally flaky controls.
Excerpt: In the middle of a season where a slew of big titles came out, the action title from Swinging Ape Studios and Sierra got lost in the shuffle. That game is Metal Arms: Glitch in the System and offers a single player mode and several gameplay modes for up to four players.
Conclusion: isn’t vital on any level. GITS is a light-hearted game with more comedic value seen less and less in games today. GITS sends you on missions that leave no space for breath. Once launched into a setting, expect relentless hordes of enemies.
Excerpt: This feature actually reminds me a lot of Interplay's Messiah, where the baby cherub protagonist would assume the bodies of others. Metal Arms is far more action oriented though. Corrosive's army of followers will come at a good pace.
Conclusion: If you have a droid-loving buddy or three Glitch's split screen multiplayer options add some real lastability to the game, and you can control other bigger bots and even drive vehicles Halo-style on some of the bigger levels.
Pros: -, of shooting but there's some genuine variation in the gameplay., Excellent character design., The explosions are cool.
Cons: Metal Arms: Glitch in the System has some unfortunate graphical glitches (presumably in its system).
