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.
I already have this game and I have to say it's probably the best FPS game on the DS yet, the graphics are amazing for the DS (probably better than Dementium and Metroid Prime Hunters) and the framerate is extremely smooth, for what I have played the Story is pretty good too (which matters to me). Gameplay is awesome and it's pretty varied, there's some exploration to do and at an early point in the game you get a small android (alien technology) that you can control remotely and can use to go to small areas your character can't go. Some of those small areas contain secret alien technology which if you collect all the ones in that specific chapter (most of them have 3) you unlock a secret episode...though I haven't unlocked anything yet because where I am there are 3, I have 2. The sound quality is awesome on the DS, I even connected my DS (through headphone jack) to my stereo to see if any sacrifices (compression) in sound was made but everything sounds awesome. I definitely recommend this game, get it! it's awesome!
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.
awesome fps game
this game is a fun action packed adventure game with nonstop fighting. you fight bosses robots and aliens. you have a ton of weapons like an assult rifle, a pistol, a machine gun, a cannon and a heat seeking missle. this game although it doesnt say it should also be rated T for mild language. this game does not have multiplayer. in adventure mode you can unlock new levels to play in quickplay mode. in easy mode you can go through lik an airplane at full speed, but at veteran it would take 1 week to beat the 3rd level. on easy i beat the game in 3 days. i think this game has a great storyline because there are a ton of logbooks that the person that was here before you left behind. a fun thing to do in this game is drive the moon buggy. you have to defeat the boss alien and you beat the 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.
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.
Part FPS, Part Adventure, All Good
Moon is really two games in one. On one level it's an FPS. Enemies come out at you, you shoot them. You collect more and bigger weapons, you shoot bigger and badder enemies. However, there is much, more to it then this. Moon is also an adventure game. You bond with your remotely piloted droid (at least I did), you explore. there is a real back story and characters have depth. Technically it's an insanely well done game. I haven't seen anything on the DS that looks quite so good while moving at 30 FPS. Controls are super-tight. The save system is (thank you Renegade Kid!) way improved from Dementium, The Ward. Music is a love it or hate it type deal. I think it works for the game, some people might call it too post-industrial. There is also a driving segment of the game. You are in a Warthog like vehicle. I loved it, but you do slide around the surface a lot and some people might find it annoying. Game length is about right. I'm not a great FPS player and I spent about 12 hours finishing the first time, and then another couple of hours on the unlockable missions. Some players could probably do it in 8 hours. The is not hyper-violent. You are shooting stuff, but mostly robots with a few aliens thrown in. I don't have a problem with this, but again.. its a taste thing. If you are looking for an Xbox 360 experience, forget it. But i you want the best FPS on the DS and a great time, pick it up.
IT LOOKS GREAT!
I have seen some gameplay and the graphics look better than ever. The weapons in the game look great and fun to use. There is a weapon called the Lepton Spread which looks awesome. The pistol called the Moon Pistol looks really cool too. The storyline looks good. It's 2058 and we have found a hatch on the moon. We don't know what it is, but there have been rumors that people have gone missing. So they call in a Spec Ops team to see what it is. I have also seen boss battles which look really good. Also, if you pre-order it, you get a special edition stylus and slide case.
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.
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.
