    It has more than a few flaws, but the central concept works as both a challenging gameplay concept and an exciting bit of cinematic presentation.
  2. Once you've made the Meganite under your control turn an invading Volgara robot into junkyard fodder a couple of times the hook will be in.
  3. Gets the most important part right, the robot’s controls and gameplay elements, but drops the ball on all of the little things (like presentation, story, and voice acting).

    If R.A.D. did have role-playing and story elements to support the action, as good as its PS predecessor, you'd be looking at the next big thing...Either way, it's just dandy. [Nov 2002, p.66]

    The control system feels weird at first but as you get into the game you can deal with it and even pretend to understand it.
  6. It offers a unique take on the giant robot game type, and pulls off this new spin while still offering an enjoyable gaming experience.

    This game is awesome! Nobody has ever succeeded in making you feel the scale of a giant robot since this game. The maps are quite large withThis game is awesome! Nobody has ever succeeded in making you feel the scale of a giant robot since this game. The maps are quite large with plenty of big buildings just begging to be toppled. The robots 'special moves' are just fun to watch, and the controls present a challenging but immersive experience. Didn't play much multiplayer, but the single player experience alone is worth it and the idea of multiplayer is promising if you have a buddy interested in the game. Full Review »

    I have to give this game a lower score because the action is slow and the camera angles and controls aren't that great. The level progressionI have to give this game a lower score because the action is slow and the camera angles and controls aren't that great. The level progression is boring. What is great is that it feels like your in a real town. I controlled my character and stood in front of a train thinking they wouldn't have bothered programming a reaction....I flew up into the rafters and it was hilarious. This game has hidden detail.

    The concept of this game is great, but after awhile it will get boring. Get this if its cheap.
