Zoids Assault Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, the animations involved with actually getting each unit into place are a rough-hewn affair. Each Zoid clomps hastily around the game space, moving only in right angles on its way a chosen square.

Zoids Assault

True achievements
23 January 2009
  • Conclusion: There are 14 total missions, and completing them all will net you a cool 500 GS (with 200 for the final mission achievement Mace-6), with another 500 wrapped up in knocking off alien technology, finishing with Defeated UNKNOWN-3. Don't be fooled, though...

Zoids Assault – Staff Review

20 September 2008
  • Excerpt: For fans of mecha anime, there are few series that lend themselves better to an RPG than Zoids. With such a broad assortment of Zoid frames and equipment, it seems a natural choice for a TRPG.

9 September 2008
  • Conclusion: It's odd that the best-looking of Atlus' recent trilogy of Xbox 360 games would be the weakest from a gameplay perspective. Zoids Assault has no personality, reduces its story to recited political mumbo jumbo, and is insanely short without offering any reason to return once you're done.
  • Pros: Some good technical visuals.
  • Cons: Awful storytelling fails to capture the fun of the Zoids brand, Extremely short for an SRPG, Drab art style relies on excessively grainy visual filter, Customization aspects are unrewarding.

  • Cons: Awful storytelling fails to capture the fun of the Zoids brand, Extremely short for an SRPG, Drab art style relies on excessively grainy visual filter, Customization aspects are unrewarding
