    Its a licenced character and the game doesnt stink! Western game developers and marketers take note, this will be a hot game if it ever makes it to the west, and the kids will speak with their wallets. Maybe if this game gets the sales it deserves, developers for other movie & TV based games will also try to improve the quality of their product.

    Here is another situation where a 70 should be in the "green" range. The review from NTSC-uk was favorable, but it still is "yellow." I still think this is a cool site, however.

    Game play gets repetitive after a while.

    Okay so Astro Boy is a pretty lame character unless you're nostalgic, really young, or perhaps reside in Japan. But this game is seriously great. It's a hardcore shooter, not the typical kiddie platformer you might expect to find on the gba.

    Thank God for Treasure, who made this and Ikaruga, an incredibly underrated (or at least under sold) GC game. What a great shooter. keep em coming.

    An incredibly fun game, especially for a portable console. Has a much more involved and interesting story than I expected.

    It was a pretty good game, but I wished it was longer and involved less mashing of buttons. thats just me i love RPGs.

    Fast paced combat and bright graphics are positive. The story feels kind disengaged but still a lot of fun . Astro Boy really need it to have this kind of gameplay.

    9 / 9 / 8 / 8 - 34 gold [Vol 784]
  2. Whether you rely on brute strength or a tactical mind, the fact that the game allows this is an achievement in itself. [JPN Import]
  3. Only the steep difficulty curve may prove a deterrent: later levels especially can induce fits of blind GBA-throwing rage. For those with the grit to play it, Astro Boy: The Omega Factor makes a refreshing alternative to all those meandering wander-em-ups.
