  • Summary: Stop the bloodlust! Instead, let's fight some cusomizable robots! Build your bot from the chassis, and throw in a mobility system, weopons and other exciting extas before going to battle.

  1. This is definitely one of those games that you find yourself playing over and over and each time the fight will be totally different in more ways than one.

    While it's prettier than most budget titles, it also suffers from the vacancy that so often comes with nice looking people, dogs, or mechanical monsters. It looks great standing still, but give it a complicated task and it all goes to pieces.
  3. To clarify, it's your typical boy-meets-scrap-parts-that-will-eventually-become-a-killing-machine tale, minus any compelling death scenes or token nudity shots.
  4. 40
    The robot construction is simplistic in the extreme, the arenas are forgettable, and the actual combat is the epitome of boredom.
  5. Even at the low retail cost of $19.99, Robot Arena isn't worth it. You'd end up getting more entertainment if you randomly chose two movies at an over-priced movie theater.

    If you can read this review, you're too old to play Robot Arena. [July 2001, p.72]
  7. Pointless, worthless, lifeless, colorless, flavorless dregs from the very bottom of the gaming barrel. An idiotic, dull, awful, dreary waste of time and hard drive space.

    This game is awsome! I think they could tune up the graphics, and make it more difficult, and make the weapon choises larger. I beat the game This game is awsome! I think they could tune up the graphics, and make it more difficult, and make the weapon choises larger. I beat the game in awhoppin 15 minutes and 47 sec.

    What a piece of *#(@! The worst AI I have ever seen, sound consists of three different samples, graphix look two years old, and absolutely What a piece of *#(@! The worst AI I have ever seen, sound consists of three different samples, graphix look two years old, and absolutely crappy multiplayer. Just one tip for the poor soul who STILL wants to buy this--make sure you go to a store with a GOOD return policy. You'll be done in an hour-max. Expand
