  • Summary: Custom Robo: The sport of tomorrow. In the not-too-distant future, competitors battle customized robot warriors in holographic battle arenas. Victory is determined not only by fighting skill but also by how well Robo Commanders design their robot gladiators, so players need both brawn and brains to survive. Explore a sci-fi landscape as you fight toward the Custom Robo championship, powering up your Robos with tons of unique parts There are literally millions of possible Custom Robo combinations, giving you complete control over how you fight your battles. Players can challenge their friends to one-on-one Robo battles anytime and anywhere using either Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, Multi-Card Play or DS Download Play. Outside of the battle arenas, Custom Robo Arena plays like a role-playing game in which players walk through the futuristic city setting and interact with other characters as they struggle to win the Custom Robo championship.

  1. This is an action-packed fighting game that features incredibly powerful robots, albeit of very slight proportions.
  2. If you enjoyed Custom Robo, which I did, and are ready for more options, parts, robos, and online play, then dive in. You won’t regret it.
  3. It's action-packed, has an involving story and loads of customisation options. [June 2007, p.80]

    Custom Robo Arena overall is a fun and addictive mech combat game that really works well on the Nintendo DS, making it a worthwhile purchase for owners of the system.
  5. If you can get past the bland '80s-era look of the robot designs and a lack responsiveness in the fighting controls, you'll find Custom Robo Arena has hidden charms. [May 2007, p.88]
  6. Despite an underwhelming story mode, the action-packed multiplayer matches and lashings of customisation make Custom Robo Arena a nice little diversion.
  7. a horribly clichéd plot and a fairly tedious single player mode, but it does have a nice online mode and asks you to rub your robot's crotch to make sure it's working properly.

    This game is fantastic, it has awesome gameplay, a ton of customisation and a long story.
    the wain selling point of this game howoever is the
    characters, as Liz is mai waifu.
    And she'll probably become yours too. It's a shame Dennis is the worst character ever thought up in any game ever.
    all in all, LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU LIZ IS MAI WAIFU
