Metal Arms: Glitch in the System
Game Over Online
2 January 2015
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.
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: 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.
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.
Excerpt: Genre: 3rd Person Action Publisher: Sierra / Vivendi Developer: Swingin’ Ape Studios Release Date: November 18, 2003 Buy 'METAL ARMS: Glitch in the System': Xbox | GameCube | PlayStation 2 This is going to be one of those reviews.
Review: Metal Arms: Glitch in the System - PS2, Xbox, Gamecube

Excerpt: You've always wanted to be a mysterious rogue robot fighting other droids on an alien planet haven't you? Even if you haven't, Metal Arms: Glitch in the System (MAGITS) provides a solid Halo-like control with one of the most fun multiplayer experiences this year.
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.
