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.
Excerpt: In a gaming world becoming over-populated by clones separated by different titles, it's nice to see a game try a new approach at an already existing concept. Imagine if you will, a world of GTA proportions with an enthralling plot, hundreds of years in the future and governed by robots.
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.
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: 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.
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.
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...
