  • Summary: In the 21st century, humankind was freed from the confines of the solar system through the discovery of an alien technology known as Robotech. Contact with the stars also brought war with the Invid, a race of parasitic aliens bent on conquering and transforming the Earth into their new home world. Now it is up to the battlehardened survivors of the Robotech Expedition to lead the way for one final attempt to liberate the Earth from the Invid Invaders! Play single player, two-player split-screen and online play: Up to 8 players via Xbox Live! or PlayStation 2 Online Pack. Freeform FPS action with expansive outdoor environments and clear objectives. Sophisticated enemy AI with different behavior patterns for each enemy type. 2 parallel scenarios: playing as the 2nd character reveals a new perspective and plot details. Control Cyclone vehicles with a realistic feeling of momentum, balance and traction. Hive raids, gang confrontations, protoculture searches and more. [Gathering] Expand

    The game alternates between first- and third-person views, but it is all action, allowing you to fight riding the Cyclone in motorcycle form or wearing it as mecha battle armor. Either way, it's a way more bitchin' ride than your little Vespa.
  2. The only high-point is Jesper Kyd's music. [May 05]
  3. Much of the iconic music, sounds, and emotive quality of the classic cartoon are absent here, making the game a fairly standard sci-fi romp with little of the magic it might have had. [Oct 2004, p.128]
  4. It has its gimmick transformers style morphing and some of the fighting can be quite addictive but there is nothing here that separates it from any other FPS out there, pretty standard stuff with a big licence name.
  5. Pretty dull, even for a first-person shooter. [Dec 2004, p.150]
  6. 50
    Intermittently, flashbacks are thrown into the game's progression by heavily blurring the screen and overlaying some audible forgotten memories. This style isn't very effective -- the blurring gets old and it's a forced narrative that gets old fast.
  7. In all honesty, Robotech: Invasion is not even worth sitting at a computer and writing a review for.
