    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. The characters and environments are all but devoid of personality, and even fans of the television program will be left wondering what has been done to suck all of the life out of such a great series.
  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. Little more than a routine, seen-it-all-before FPS. For all the imagination, originality and excitement on offer it could have been written by a robot.
  7. In all honesty, Robotech: Invasion is not even worth sitting at a computer and writing a review for.
