  • Summary: The Veritech fighter--a mecha capable of fighting on land, in air, and in outer space--is the only weapon you have against the forces of the alien, Zentraedi. As the intrepid fighter pilot Jack Archer, you'll control this powerful robot through more than 40 missions. With each of the 40 Veritech fighters, you can switch from ground to hover and flight modes instantly. Battlecry's combination of fast-paced gameplay, freedom of movement, and dramatic storyline make for a unique combat experience. Expand

    Transforming robots, stylish graphics and a huge variety of missions make up for the occasional bump in the road. [Nov 2002, p.72]
  2. Devotees of the old TV series will be thrilled. [Nov 2002, p.116]
  3. The A.I and such may seem rather disappointing at times, but when you get down to the bare bones of it all, this is just a fun game to play and enjoy.
  4. 71
    A decent, but unremarkable game. The story, graphics, music, and voice acting will greatly appeal to fans of the show, but I don't see these aspects bringing new fans into the fold.
  5. 70
    If Robotech authenticity is more important to you than gameplay diversity, then here's your chance to finally join the RDF.
  6. It's disappointing to see developer Vicious Cycle nail the look and feel of a Veritech fighter, only to drop the ball on finer details like graphics, level design, and overall story...We wanted something more. [Fall 2002, p.116]
  7. 48
    However, the sheer agony induced (both physically and mentally) by the lazy implementation of the controls made me scream time and time again.
