While the models look good, the story itself is enjoyable, and there is good customizability for your Robo fighters, what drags this game down into the gutter are glaring technical issues. For starters, the character models are stuck on the same facial expression. The developers tried to make up for this with expressive portraits, but that only works when the majority of shots are top-down. Second, the characters have such limited animation that they can't even make fists. Lastly, the generic "beeps" and "hoops" for language gets easily annoying. This game had great potential, but NOISE squandered it away with glaring technical issues. My advice, forget about this game and get the far superior successor Custom Robo Arena.
Fun alone and better with friends!
The gameplay is amazing and the graphics are unbelievable for the gamecube. The single player is fun for a pass time, but could be a lot longer. When you are playing with friends, there is a chance you will be playing for hours. This is a very addicting game. I give it a 10/10
10 outa 10

Best GC Game
best gc game ever. i could play the story line over and over again it made me fall in love with the game, when i went and sold all my gc stuff i kept this because it means so much to me. play it all day everyday
pretty good, I'd say
the battles in this game are actually really fun even though they're short, you can customize your robots and unlock lots of new parts. however, without the battles, there is no freedom to explore, you have to go to certain points, the graphics aren't that great, and all you can do is run around. but, the robot battles are great, and that's what makes this game fun.
Over all the game was just an attention get-er, i loved the customization and the strategy required for playing this game like a beast. It was just fun to like run around and shoot teleport etc all around the field and just use different combinations to successfully adapt and defeat your target.
Awesome. Nintendo did it, as always. GO NINTENDO.WOOHOO!
Armored core made easy
As my summary suggests Custom Robo is like Armored core in that you create your own robot but instead its really simple you just choose a robot and you choose a gun, a bomb, a pod, and boosters to use in battle. The story is alright it follows a nameless hero (you give him a name ) as he fights an evil syndicate and learns the truth about a monster that almost destroys the planet and has returned and finds out what happened to his father. Its not the most original but it works but the story doesnt stop when you beat the game you get another game that continues the story. The gameplay is pretty good its kinda like a fighting game but instead of punches and kicks you uses bullets and bombs, you customize your robo before battle and you can see who your opponent is and what the battlefield is to determine what parts to use. The variety of each robot and each part is welcome, each robot has unique strengths and weaknesses and the different stages help you incorporate them as such, but some of the guns are useless in battle. The visuals are okay the opening video looks great but the rest of the game doesnt look the same way which is confusing because they couldve used it for the game. The game as as a whole is good it could use some work but its great for those who liked armored core but dont like the over complicated layout.
this game is a great mix of future robotic technology and super smash bros. type of fighting attacks. As my 2 friends and I played through the multiplayer we were awesomly suprised with new items or characters you could upgrade into. The controls are basic and easy to learn, but it still is somewhat tricky to use them. Throughout the game, as you earn more unlockables, the game increases its difficulty. It does so because the more weapons, such as lazers , and missiles , you unlock, the more powerful you become.Over all, my experience with this game has been great , and I can't wait untill i can play it again with my friends
Mixes adventure with battle awsome hybrid
One of the best games I ever played. Im realy bumed that the sequil is only avalible in japan. This game has a great story and the battle sequences are amazing. the best part is that you can customize your robo to fit your fighting style, hence the name I recomend this game to everyone. A ds version was released called custom robo arena a good game but the game cube version is superior. sorry if any mis spellings.
