  1. What can gamers take away from their experience with Zoids Assault? Well, first off, the strategy role-playing genre is still in need of a worthy candidate to make the genre look extraordinary again. Secondly, the developers need to hire better writers to create a campaign truly worthy of our time.

    Zoids Assault is a bland, uninspiring game that will keep the interest of very few gamers after the first battle or two.
  3. Zoids Assault is a title that won’t win over too many new fans. It has low production values, the storyline is weak, the gameplay is standard and the audio isn’t anything special; all the makings of a below-average video game.
  4. 50
    A stiff, by-the-numbers experience that mixes a few good ideas with generally middling execution.
  5. I am not exaggerating when I say that any of the many Front Mission games will serve your giant robot strategy/RPG needs far better than Zoids Assault ever could. Don’t waste your time here.
  6. In its battle system, Zoids Assault has the germ of a great game. The idea is executed so half-heartedly, however, that it's hard to imagine what the developers were thinking. So, many minor tweaks could have made this so much better. Factor in a price that's at least quadruple what it should be, and it's not just a bad game, it's an insult.
  7. It's short, shallow and not all that fun.
  8. For the rest of the RPG fans, there are much better choices when it comes to playing a JRPG stateside; none of which involve importation.

    Steer clear of Zoids unless you’re a rabid strategy fan who has played through Atlus’ other lackluster titles or if you’re an ardent supporter of the franchise. Everyone else needn’t apply.
  10. This mech strategy RPG is rusty and dull.
  11. It offers nothing, not even to die-hard fans of the Zoids series, and certainly not to Xbox 360 owners who are looking for an SRPG to tide them over. It's rare I say this, but Zoids Assault is a game to avoid at all costs.
  12. After playing Zoids Assault, I really had to wonder why it was made or why Atlus decided to bring it over to these shores.
  13. A big mess of a strategy role-playing game, as it seems to fall short on just about every level. Fans of strategy games can easily overlook a lackluster presentation, but Zoids Assault also suffers a severe lack of appealing game play, making it hard to recommend to anyone.
  14. The only thing more unbelievable than the fact that Zoids Assault is a full-priced title is that they advertise downloadable content on the back of the box.

    Zoids Assault's gameplay is certainly challenging, but regrettably, it's for all the wrong reasons. [Nov 2008, p.78]
  16. Zoids Assault, while not a complete disaster, is something altogether worse. It's completely unnecessary.
  17. 30
    I can't imagine a good reason to purchase Zoids Assault.

It doesn't make the game unfinishable... but it is annoying seeing as no one has bothered to post the cutscenes online. Full Review »
