    For those after a fresh twist on a near-expired genre, MicroBot offers enough action to get your heart pumping.

    This is yet another quality downloadable shooter that deserves both your money and your love.

    MicroBot's baseline gameplay isn't revolutionary, but for an arcade shooter, it's not bad. Might be worth a trip just for the aesthetics, depending on how much like the genre.

    A few neat elements help keep this tepid dual-stick shooter afloat.

    Microbot's interesting premise, setting, and mechanics are undermined by several issues that cause the game to be more of a tedious chore than an enjoyable experience.

    Stick with PixelJunk Shooter instead. [Issue#202, p.97]

    MicroBot is a technically accomplished but sterile experience. As the game settles into a rut, its stylistic strengths lose more and more ground to the sluggish combat, uninspiring upgrades and repetitive stages.

    This game really deserves more love. It's a steal right now at 400 points, and I think the reviews have been overly harsh. Microbot is aThis game really deserves more love. It's a steal right now at 400 points, and I think the reviews have been overly harsh. Microbot is a clever top down dual stick shooter that isn't perfect, but has great moments. It has a very relaxing quality that is punctuated by intense fighting. The graphics are really well done too. The upgrade system is also great and adds depth for those who like grinding for loot. Give it a chance, it definitely feels like a game made in a short amount of time, but there is some interesting stuff here sprinkled throughout. For the price, you have to try. Expand

    Funny game with five part of a body (bloods, bones, digetive, brain x2) a little bit short but good immersion specially in bones.Funny game with five part of a body (bloods, bones, digetive, brain x2) a little bit short but good immersion specially in bones. Maneuverability is good and you play with both sticks (one to navigate and one for shoot). It is a false 3D, your move is only in a plane, but some enemy use the depht. A good little game in PSN.
