Metal Arms: Glitch in the System Review

IGN Entertainment
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. This title does a great job of adding familiar elements of platforming and first-person shooter titles to an intense fast-paced action game.

Metal Arms: Glitch In The System

Xbox Evolved
28 July 2005
  • 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. This strong gameplay base is given particular quality with the entertaining story and voice acting. Now available for anywhere from $5-$20, Metal Arms proves a great value.
  • Pros: Brilliant, humorous story and voicing.
  • Cons: Average graphics and occasionally flaky controls.

  • 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. Through this tether, you gain a remote drone and all of the capabilities the target robot has.

Game Over Online

  • 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. For a third-person action game, the puzzles and obstacles are kept at a minimum. The emphasis truly is on the gunfire. Plenty of spam-ridden explosions are thrown in to make destruction visceral.

  • 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. Metal Arms: Glitch in the System is a cracking game, a bit like the aforementioned Halo, a bit like Messiah, a bit like Munch's Oddysee and a bit like good old Paradroid, sadly the experience is tainted by a few levels that are a little too...
  • 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).

  • Conclusion: Die knapp 40 Missionen von Metal Arms vergehen wie im Flug. Das Missionsdesign präsentiert sich sehr abwechslungsreich. Saß man gerade noch am Steuer eines mächtigen Panzers und vertrieb die MIL aus Droidia, sieht man sich schon gegen eine Armada von Zombiebotern auf sich alleine gestellt, um kurz darauf in einer netten Rennsequenz gegnerischen Jägern zu entkommen.
