In the vast underground weapons complex of Force Valley, monstrous cyborg armies are created to wage war on the fields above. In a moment of folly, an experimental cyborg known as 'Magin', escapes and takes over the weapons laboratory and facility. Creating an army of enhanced weapon monsters, Magin entombs the Gods of magic, turning Force Valley into a Metal Dungeon. Now, a group of Cyborgs known as the Enforcers are enlisted to take back the facility, plunge into its depths and root out the evil that awaits. So gear up, level up, and get ready for a horror-filled, futuristic RPG adventure in the Metal Dungeon. Expand

  1. An average game that employs the same battle system as numerous other Japanese-style dungeon crawls. Unfortunately, when you have seen so many, it is hard to get excited about another.
  2. Its fundamentals are solid enough, but too bland and redundant. [Jan 2003, p.78]
  3. What the deal with the blander-than-bland texturing? If I wanted to be lulled to sleep, I would read a selection from Minnesota's penal code. [Feb 2003, p.104]
  4. Any kind of story or action present in the game is quickly drowned by the boring repetition that drags this title down like a quagmire.
  5. 40
    The same players who found relentless, party-balancing corridor fighting ultimately frustrating in a cute, cartoony game like "Evolution Worlds" won't find it any more refreshing here just because it's wearing a darker, spookier "Aliens" costume.
  6. This game is more of an action adventure without the combat. It's also a little shy on action and adventure.
  7. Does one thing and one thing only: it adds one more RPG to the Xbox line-up, and whether or not that's a good thing depends on how desperate you are for a dungeon crawl.
