  1. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of shmups you can play for free on the Internet. Practically all of them are better than Metal Torrent.
  2. With only one real, fairly short game mode (the pattern randomization doesn't do that much, after all) and two ships catering to two very specific groups of players, Metal Torrent will only appeal to two types of people: those who are interested in bullet hell shooters but haven't actually played any, and those who are already highly skilled at them. Anybody inbetween should look elsewhere for their shoot-'em-up fix.
  3. If you've got an eye for twitch shooters and reckon you've got what it takes, then 500 points is a small price to pay.
  4. Metal Torrent has the makings of a fantastic space shooter, but is severely let down by a lack of content.
  5. A shoot'em up for everyone: simple with the red ship, hard with the blue one. It is based on repetition but also in surprising the player continuously.
  6. 70
    Metal Torrent does include a torrential downpour of bullets, but not of content. It works as a simple shooter for high score chasers.
  7. 60
    Really, there's not much here, and for 500 points I can think of plenty of better examples.
  8. The best thing that I can say about Metal Torrent is that it's a great space shooter with a huge bite taken out of the middle.
  9. Brief, ill conceived and convoluted. DSiWare remains barren for shooter fans. [July 2010, p.93]
