I got this only because I had a Wii and there were no other interesting games for me where I was when I got it.
So the cover, looked cool. Kind of looked like Tron a bit, which I liked. So I bought it, thinking it would be fun.
The game started off with enemies attacking the spyborgs headquarters. I think I must have missed a game or something, though, because they talk like you should know what they're talking about. They have you choose two characters that you can switch between during gameplay. The first three characters you could choose from were a giant robot, a ninja chick, and a shooter guy. I choose the robot because it was cool.
they put you right into the action and you fight robots or aliens or whatever the heck they are, which wasn't a bad idea and I didn't mind. But once I figured out how to fight, it was pretty boring. it was just hitting the B button or C button or mashing A+C or A+B. Quite boring in my opinion. And then there was collecting this red stuff which if you had enough you could buy upgrades. Thought that was cool until I realized if you died you lost them all. Hated it. Sadly took me longer than it should have to get past the first level. It was an endless array of mashing of buttons with hardly any strategy what-so-ever.
Will sell this at my next yard sale.
Better than I expected.
I did not have high hopes for this game but since its published by Capcom I decided to give it a chance and its a pretty entertaining game. The story is kind of weak and would be better suited for younger audiences. The gameplay is your basic beat em up brawler and for all intents and purposes works quite well. Your B button is your melee attack while A is to jump,C is your power attack and Z is your block. You also have a good option to use button presses or motions for certain aspects of the game. The developers took note that pointless motion flailing of your arm is totally pointless and motion controls are optional. You can use a cursor type thing across the screen that locates hidden boxes and control panels that make bridges slide across and the such. You can upgrade your skills at the end of each level and there are over 30 levels. 4 difficulty modes starting with the easiest being novice. The game can get quite hard so they made it to where you can change difficulty settings at any point. You can also go back and replay missions again and again much like how you can in Devil May Cry and you will keep your upgrades to your character and you can keep upgrading them. The sound is really does a good job. Graphics are some of the best I have seen on the Wii in quite some time. The game is pretty much well polished and the only negative I can say is the game can get repetitive but that comes to the nature of the genre and I love it ! Levels are linear and straight forward much like nearly every beat em up brawler before it. Boss fights are pretty cool as well. You also can ulock medals and other achievements through out the game and this will extend the gameplay quite a bit. Overall this is a welcome addition to the Wii library and anyone that likes action games or beat em up brawlers needs to go out and get this one immediately.
Everybody says don't judge a book by it's cover. I judged this game by it's cover. I thought it looked cool. Oh how wrong I was. This started off being kinda fun, but after 20 minutes, you toss it on the floor and go back to playing something else. This game has no lasting appeal and is a waste of your money. Now I know there will be conflicting arguments, people saying, " This game is so good. Buy it now!". Don't just don't. Take my word for it.
It's so good!
Lets get one fact straight. Spyborgs is hard. One of the hardest games that i own. it's really fun and I got 5 or so great hours out of it. It may seem cheap at first, but it really is a fun game. It has a great story, characters and battle system.
Reccomended for only the hardest of hard core gamers.
i beat the gmae too fast and mulitplayer got old so i traded it in.
