Not bad for $4.99
I picked this up for $4.99 and I must say, not a bad buy at all. The graphics are pretty grainy and the music is pretty sub par. But, the concept and the action of the game are great! Just like Call of Duty 4, the controls are a little cramped. You use the directional pad for moving, the left shoulder button for firing and the stylus on the touch screen for looking around. In the end, as long as your hands do not cramp up, this is a solid FPS. Blasting aliens on the moon is a blast. This game is well wroth the price and should be played by all.
Super Sci-fic Shooter!
Moon is an amazing first-person shooter.it being,entertaining,addictive,suprisingly long lasting,and a great story-line,Moon is a great buy,however the game itself and its story line is quite dark and sorta makes the game less entertaining.The weapons are fairly cool and the game's story mode lasts for plenty of hours,also the difficulty can be ajusted from Too easy,hard,very hard. You can replay each mission on a harder difficulty which is one im working at. Altogehter there is no r3eason not to like it.
tight and uncomfortable, but still good
this is probably one of the few ds first person shooters I'll ever play, but this is actually a fun game. the shooting is fun, but it's the controls that are the only problem: you shoot with the L button and use the touch screen too aim, and this could have been better if the developers made this like an old style first person shooter. but this is a good game
the best nds game hands down
now there are alot of great nds games dont get me wrong, but the story of Moon, the gameplay, (i love having to send my robot out) its just fantastic. its original, its fun , i really cant say enough, its one of those hidden gems that i guess only a few got to play.
Now... This game is quite a graphical gem considering some of the insanely terrible graphics games avalible to the DS. The graphics are on par to some of the popular PC shooters I own, which at first amazed me. But there are certain areas where this game lacks. The graphics, while are amazingly crisp for the DS, often are grainy when you get close to an object in the game. The cut-scenes are superb...kinda. The audio for the scenes are all done by what seems like the same person. There is no emotion in the diolouge either, making it seem like a serious fan dubb. The game doesn't have lasting appeal. You can replay the game on a harder setting, but the buck stops there. There is no New Game + where you can replay older missons with the weapons you gather in other levels, which sucks. One more important note: when I was playing it, I felt the story was immensly dry. The levels are full of little consoles that share information with you when you tap them. Big whoop. Then there is the pointless conversation with your in-game comrades that shares little to no information. Ahem. I was rambling for a while there. But the point is, I would reccomend this game, BUT, and it is a big but, whoever decides to buy this, don't expect a shooter like Halo or any other hardcore shooter. It is a decent game, but it could be better.
i thought this game was one of my favorite ds games, the gameplay is fun and the challenges where fun. If you like to play shooter ds games than get moon.
This game used to be rated M on the ESRB scale, then they changed it to T on the ESRB scale! This game has mystery, monsters, THE MOON! This reminded me of Dementium: The Ward (or number 2!)! They should change ESRB though.
One of the best ds games
Very few games can do what this game does. This game takes super gameplay with awesome graphics and combines them to create something that is truly a masterpiece. First of all this game has superb gameplay and the controls are completely responsive. The controls are quite easy to learn. The one thing i dont like about this game is how dark it is sometimes but that is just a minor annoyance. This game comes close to being as good as metroid prime hunters. i would suggest this game to anyone who like fps, great graphics, or just a plain awesome game.
I would recommend this game this game to anyone who likes FPS/Sci-Fi video games, but you don't want to be over whelmed by bosses, objectives, and a story. I'm not saying Moon is lacking in those points, but simply it is not a large amount that only hard-core gamers could handle. Challenge: Moon was a challenge, but not an over whelming one like I said before. Enemies,Bosses, and levels could be defeated without spending hours to defeat. There are some mild puzzles to figure out, well, most of them are pretty easy. Controls: The controls are are pretty good. Right handed players would shoot with the Right shoulder button, aim with the touch screen, and strafe with the D-Pad. For Left handed players (like myself) if would be the opposite in buttons, Left shoulder button to shoot , Touch screen to aim, and to strafe you would use A B X Y. Pretty easy to control. Graphics/Animation: The graphics are nice and smooth (running at 60fps I would hope they are smooth!) There are pre-rendered cut-scenes that are pretty nice, but are basically DS graphics. You wont find Metriod DS graphics in this game though. Interface: The menu is easy to figure out. Adventure (Story Mode), Quick Play is where you can replay previous levels and play training missions that you discover through out the game via Alien Artifacts. Options let you control the music,sound,what hand you are,invert the y-axis, subtitles,rumble (if you have a rumble pack), and brightness. If you want to start over you can delete your save data as well. In-game you can see the map of the room you are in, and if you tap on map you can get a view of the whole area and see where you have visited. There is also the list of weapons+ your search droid. Length: The game could be longer, I almost beat the game in one day (but decided to take a break.) I would recommend to play this game when you have time, do not play when you have short amounts of free time because there are very few save points through out the game. Sound: the weapon sounds are good. The music is okay, but could have been better, but it fits the mood of the game. The enemy sounds are great. Storyline: Most of the storyline is not given in text from communicating with your assistant. Most of the story is given to you via computer terminals you will find around the game. I would recommend reading these if you are interested in story. If you want to just go through the game blasting away aliens/robots I would not bother with the terminals. The story is pretty good, and a little scary at the same time. Not so scary that you will stay up all night with your tin-foil hat on and your alien hunting gear on the ready. (A disgusting part of the story is revealed later on in the game.) Other: There is no multiplayer in this game. Enemies will not respawn once you revisit a level, plus items you left behind will stay in the level when you leave which is great. Some bosses are reused multiple times. There is not a HUGE variety of enemies in the game. WARNING!!! If you buy this game used there is a chance you will get the first version. The first version of Moon has a glitch when you are driving the LOLA (moon buggy) if you park it in the garage it will take you to a level that you aren't supposed to go to in that point in the game, if you park it there you will be on that level without the LOLA, and are trapped there and must restart the game. Renegade Kid found out about the glitch after release and re-released the game with a fixed version. There is no way to tell if the game you buy is fixed or not. So keep your eye on it or you'll have to restart the game (like me D:) Besides all that this is a good game and I would recommend you buy it.
This game shows that we are not alone. In this game you are on the moon, and your moon base is attacked. You have to find your friends and stop what is happening. This game is very long, and the bosses are hard to eliminate, in the game you get part of the map on the bottom screen, and in that bottom screen, look at the right hand corner and you'll see the all of the map. You wont face the aliens, and robots by yourself, you'll have a droid that looks like one of those Mars's rover, and it will help you with your journey, it will go in to small places that you will not be able to go, and it will go around and open the door for you, trust me you need it, and it needs you. This game has 18 episodes/levels,(but not counting the 5 bonus levels). Also you get 7 different types of weapons, but no granades, i'm a fan of bombs and granades. Also you get abducted by an alien ship. Also no game is awsome without a veichle, you actually ride a vechicle on the surface of our moon, how tight is that.
