    If you like the cel shading technique, prepare to be literally blown away...TDK does a splendid job with the color schemes, and most of the little effects compliment the main graphics perfectly.
  2. Game Informer
    The best fighter-combat title since "Rogue Leader." [Dec 2002, p.128]
  3. Even my friends, those who hate anime with a burning passion have found love in this cel-shaded action game. Definitely the best mech game in existence.

    Fans of the show should definitely pick this one up for your favorite system, not because it's another piece of memorabilia, but because it's a nice, controllable manifestation of a show you love.
  5. The idea of using the Veritech through a number of objective-based missions plays off very well in Robotech: Battlecry.
  6. Some might find the control a tad complicated and some missions overly difficult, but the action is very solid, overall.
  7. Nintendo Power
    The story line and cel-shaded graphics are true to the Robotech animated series. [Dec 2002, p.216]
  8. 70
    This brilliant re-creation of the Robotech universe is a dream come true for fans of the animated series -- but it won't appeal to many others.
  9. 70
    Those not so enamored by the 'toon may not get past the game's repetitive missions, chintzy AI, and sluggish maneuverability.
  10. Play Magazine
    The overall result is a Robotech fan's dream come true (the amount of "Paint Designs" and extras to unlock, like cast interviews, is staggering) but also a unique mission-based mech game that (finally) breathes some fresh air into an otherwise stale category. [Oct 2002, p.70]
  11. Its somewhat sluggish controls, repetitive missions, and the near total absence of a sense of speed keep the game from mimicking the show's exciting combat sequences.

    I have to say it. I felt a little disappointed. The game is not bad, but I expected something better. The cinematics are just picturesI have to say it. I felt a little disappointed. The game is not bad, but I expected something better. The cinematics are just pictures (remember that this game is based on a anime), the graphics could be better, the voices sound a little unprofessional. And where is Rick Hunter???. In the other hand we have a nice design of mechas, a lot of missions, nice gameplay and a good replay value. Nice game but incomplete. Full Review »
