    Highly entertaining and, above all, fun. Despite being filled with all manner of videogame cliches, Metal Arms somehow feels refreshingly new and not at all like the cobbled together title that it so undoubtedly is. [Christmas 2003, p.103]
  2. Each aspect of Metal Arms illustrates the greatness of which the fledgling Swingin' Ape Studios is capable, but sadly, a number of faults keep the product as a whole from being outstanding.

    This game has everything, it absolutly rules all! The only thing i can say that they could have done to make this game better is: more levels This game has everything, it absolutly rules all! The only thing i can say that they could have done to make this game better is: more levels (theres alot but why not more!), more MIL bots that you can take controll of, more vehicles, and last, more weapons... but even without these, the game is awesome!

    A very solid shoot 'em-up action game. It is a very good game I recommend it.

    Stupid game. Boring. Repetitive.
