  1. Finally a game that boasts graphics that we have been promised would come out of our PS2s.
  2. This is one game that is not afraid to lay it all out on the table and let the chips fall.
  3. It's innovative, intuitive, engaging and, best of all, comes jam-packed with action that's fast, furious and totally fresh. It's the first genuine opportunity for anime fans to bring their robotic dreams to life.

    This game is unplayable mess from every point of view.
    I strongly suggest you never launch this "game" even if you got it for free.

    Plot is non-existant, main character makes me want to kill him every time he opens his mouth.

    Worst of all are awful gameplay mechanics and fact that this is unplayable without a strategy guide, because game NEVER explain what needs to be done next so its up to you to decide which of 5 already finished levels you must visit for 5th time to get another "password" to progress further.
