Excerpt: The release of Robotech: Battlecry should have marked a momentous occasion for fans of the popular 1980s animated series of the same name. Not only is this 3D shooter the first licensed Robotech game (notwithstanding numerous Japanese games based on Macross , the source material for Robotech ), but it seemed that developer Vicious Cycle was doing everything possible to ensure that Battlecry was as authentic a re-creation of the classic sci-fi cartoon as possible.
Excerpt: Robotech: Battlecry by TDK Mediactive is the first game, stateside, to be released that is based on the popular Macross spin-off made mini-series, Robotech. It is based on the first and most popular mini-series in the saga and allows you to pilot a transformable Veritech fighter in a variety of situations. Fans of the 1980s animated series will be glad to know that developer Vicious Cycle went to great lengths to instill the same sense of mech-lovin’ found in the show.
Conclusion: Das von Robotech Battlecry gebotene Spielerlebnis ruft äusserst zwiegespaltene Gefühle hervor. Die meiste Zeit ist es langweilig und die Grafik, die Steuerung und vor allem der Sound echen keine Xbox-Rekorde. Doch manchmal gibt es Momente, in denen man Robotech wirklich spielen möchte. Vielleicht gibt es die nicht besonders oft, aber es gibt sie.
