    Until it can become a deeper two-player or four-player online game with a dedicated twin stick peripheral (a cost most publishers naturally abhore), there is no good logical reason to buy this huge disappointment.

    This could have been the best Virtual-On ever, and instead it's easily the worst.
  3. This game gets almost every design decision wrong and looks like hell on top of that. [Jan 2004, p.91]
  4. The pace has been slowed to attract a broader audience, but the end result is combat that's sluggish and boring. Even the quickest and most agile virtuaroid drags its feed in comparison to its arcade counterparts. [Jan 2004, p.130]

    While not quite as good as it's prequel( VO Ontario Tangram) on the dreamcast Virtual on Marz is a good game made better by it's lengthyWhile not quite as good as it's prequel( VO Ontario Tangram) on the dreamcast Virtual on Marz is a good game made better by it's lengthy single player campaign. It's a unique take on the fighting genre where the camera follows directly behind you, which means multilayer is split screen. If you don't have friends to play with this makes Marz the better choice over VOOT. Having the twin sticks on the controller allows you to play with the original twin stick control scheme, although I prefer the default control scheme(pro-tip: stop completely before rotating with the right stick you'll move faster) My only complaints are changes in color schemes of the mechs, how ridiculously long it takes to unlock new mechs in the single player, a less interesting arcade mode and switching my favorite character to his alternate vehicle mode.
