I've seen and heard many games based on movies an anime, that mostly are just "fan service", though seldom deliver that. While I never watched the show much, I collected some of the figures, just to build. Even NOT being TOO much of a Zoids fan, this game was good in it's own right. Add to it all of the references and crossed generations of characters, good level up systems, many secrets, and PvP: You got a good RPG-style game that, if having been released before Pokemon became popular, would have been the multiplayer craze everyone would be buying. Music was not too impressive, but nostalgic to some series. Graphics allowed you to customize your Zoids' appearance to a good point, and had good detail, but they lacked animations. Perhaps this is solely due to the content of the game was already full, but this is a game for casual and hardcore gamers alike: ESPECIALLY if you have siblings or friends to play it with constantly. Recommended for parents who want to encourage FRIENDLY competition and sportsmanship with their children, there's less controversial content than Pokemon, albeit saying the D word a couple of times. The biggest downfall of this game is it's poor translation.
yes: I recommend this product
