  • Excerpt: American McGee is back and this time trying to do for robots what he did for Alice. Unfortunately though, lightning doesn�t strike twice for the developer and you�ll quickly realize that Scrapland is nothing more than a Grand Theft Auto hybrid filled with quirky robots. By borrowing the elements from several different genres this game loses something in the process and it comes off as a bot of all trades, master of none even though it does several things right.

Red Ninja: End of Honor Review

IGN Entertainment
30 March 2005
  • Conclusion: When a game developer is working in a genre as rich as third-person action adventures, with the top game featuring a ninja (Gaiden), you had better go big. Unfortunately Tranji went more medium to small sized and therefore may be pushed aside by the Xbox faithful because of this. Technical issues at the core of gameplay (camera) will burn any gamer’s sack, especially when asked to pay the premium price tag.

Scrapland Review

GameSpot
18 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto with robots? That would seem to be the most apt description upon one's first impression of Scrapland, the latest action game from designer American McGee and publisher Enlight Software. Featuring a seemingly open-ended gameplay structure, a noirish murder mystery, a goofy sense of humor, and a huge city to explore, Scrapland would seem to have all the makings of a futuristic adventure of epic proportions.
  • Pros: Features a charming sense of humor and plenty of memorable characters., Excellent graphics engine with wonderfully detailed models and environments., Solid voice acting and soundtrack., The ship-flying portions of the game are well-done.
  • Cons: Insipidly repetitive mission structuring., Too much aimless wandering and not much action while on foot., The story starts hot, but doesn't sizzle throughout.

  • Conclusion: Lowdown Mercury Steam has surprised us all with their sci-fi adventure tale Scrapland. This original presentation from American McGee is a nice diversion from everything else on the market. Scrapland is definitely worth the low price of admission and anyone who is curious should pick this one up.

Scrapland

Gamecell
2 July 2005
  • Conclusion: Being robo-Michael Jackson-alike D-Tritus (pronounced ‘dee-treat-us’) makes for a strange lifestyle. Scrapland is a sci-fi 3D game with action, speed and air combat; it has a good try at ‘doing a GTA’ with robots. The story takes place in Chimera, a gigantic neon-lit city built by and inhabited by robots on a tiny asteroid called Scrapland.
  • Pros: Nice graphics., Fairly free-form game play., ‘Customizable’ ships.
  • Cons: D-Tritus is a really, really crap main character., Not as free-form as it makes itself out to be., Almost too gaudy for its own good., 20 years on, and we’re still waiting for another robot game as good as Paradroid.

  • Conclusion: Wer unkonventionelle Geschichten mag, kann sicherlich einen Blick riskieren, da er zumindest in den ersten Stunden vortrefflich unterhalten wird. Durchspielen werden Scrapland jedoch die Wenigsten. Dafür büßt das Spiel seinen Charme viel zu schnell wieder ein.

Scrapland - Review (Xbox/PC)

Konsolen-World
19 September 2005
  • Conclusion: Beide Versionen von Scrapland können voll überzeugen. Nett sind vor allem die interessante Story, die vielen Details, die deutschen Synchronsprecher und die riesige Spielwelt. Hinzu kommt ein gutes und vor allem abwechslungsreiches Gameplay - das über viele Stunden fesseln kann. Der Mehrspielerbereich ist zwar nur ein netter Bonus, aber wer mal etwas anderes machen möchte, darf sich auch hier für eine gewisse Zeit auslassen.

  • Excerpt: American McGee er måske ikke en person, som de fleste kender så meget til. Ja det er i det hele taget et temmelig tåbeligt navn, men det kan staklen jo nok ikke gøre for. Dem, der kan huske ham, kender ham sikkert fra den meget mørke fremstilling af Alice in Wonderland, som han lavede for nogle år siden, så hvad laver han nu og hvad er det hersens Scrapland for en størrelse?

  • Conclusion: Nettes Third-Person-Action-Adventure, das mit dem knallbunten Setting sowie symphatischen Robotercharakteren punkten kann - allerdings optisch gegenüber der PC-Version leicht zurückfällt. Zudem ist das Missionsdesign in den Innenlevels etwas spannungsarm. Ein gutes Spiel, das man durchaus haben kann - aber nicht muss.
