  • Summary: Metalheart: Replicants Rampage is a tactical role-playing game set in the devastated lanscapes of a strange planet lost among the stars. Lead your team to success using smart tactics, explore a huge isometric world, experience unique cybernetic body implants and tactical turn-based combat. The player controls a team of up to 6 members. A team can be formed during the journey from the following races: replicants, cyborgs, mutants and nomads. Each of the groups has special abilities, e.g. cyborgs are good in combat, mutants are healing experts, nomads are masters of camouflage. Allying with different groups changes the flow of the game: being hostile to nomads opens the way to getting friendly cyborgs or mutants to provide new quests. A lot also depends on the composition of the team; for instance, a pure cyborg team requires a different strategy than mutants or nomads. The usage of futuristic items and body implants influences the abilities of each character in an extraordinary way: roentgen eye extenders allow the character to look through obstacles,health converters initiate self healing of a character, teleport implants make a character jump from one place to another during combat. The variety is huge. Every character experiences a personal RPG-development during the game. On level up the player may increase some of the character values such as dexterity, strength, intelligence etc. The unique development of a character makes him specifically special in his skills.

  1. The frustration of RTS interrupting RPG is maddening beyond belief, but you won't understand what's going on anyway, so it's not worth the worry. [Christmas 2005, p.102]
  2. Metal Heart: it’s like that funny looking pastry next to the apple Danish that looks delicious but I’m sure as hell not eating it!
  3. Unfortunately, it’s an uninspiring, flawed and ultimately a failure. Avoid the like the proverbial plague.
  4. A Fallout-style, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic story that's missing everything expected by any self-respecting RPG gamer. It's a fight to play this game and I don't see how the developer could miss out so many features that are key to a good RPG.
  5. Every aspect of it is extremely poor and badly thought out which is reflected in the shortness of this review.
