    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.

    Wonderful game. Controls are quite comfortable for a shooter on a console. Lot's of great weapons, especially the control tether. My advice: Don't let this great game slide by you in the holiday release shuffle.

    This game couldn't get any better. You blast through your enemies with 17 devistating weapons. What more could you want and it's not one of those games you can beat in a week. This game is tight.

    The game is top notch from beginning to end. Tons of weapons, cool vehicles to drive and great graphics. Also, the environments are very interactive and destructible. Quality oozes out of this game at every turn.

    Imaginative graphics and superb sound, a sprawling adventure packed full of neat touches and cool weapons, great humour and an accomplished multiplayer; Glitch embodies what games are really all about - challenge, entertainment and fun.

    This is ballsy, brash, confident gaming at its best - a lesson in how games don't have to be perfect to be brilliant. [Christmas 2003, p.102]

    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]
