  1. Scrapland has virtually everything that you could wish for in a game although a little more gameplay variety would be welcome. It's loaded with humor, action, great graphics, interesting characters and a kicking soundtrack.
  2. For all its flaws though, Scrapland's immersive gameplay, enjoyable storyline and quirky, unique atmosphere are more than enough to keep you hooked until the very end.
  3. Had the controls been a bit more responsive for the ship-flying portions and the robot smashing just a tad more smoother, we would have had the perfect robot action game this side of "Metal Arms: Glitch in the System."
  4. Scrapland's parts make a pretty decent whole, but there just wasn't that old black magic there, that feeling that captivates you and keeps you glued to your seat longing for more. [Apr 2005, p.57]
  5. A good-looking game that offers inoffensive, simple gameplay that's likely to suit the tastes of most gamers. Due to knowing exactly what you're meant to be doing at all times, it loses the complete immersion that games like "Beyond Good & Evil" and a few others in the genre have managed to accomplish, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. [Feb 2005, p.110]
  6. The end result feels like two separate games crudely soldered together, there's a connection there, but it lacks cohesion and a real weld between worlds.

    It's a serviceable game, but it doesn't excel in any regard. [Apr 2005, p.85]

    Great game, though at times a bit repetitive.

    Having come to rely on Metacritic for sound advice i thought it about time to comment. This game is very good looking, I could fly around for hours picking fights, it is a good game that pehaps lacks a little heart but is made up for by the graphics and general humour... Collapse

    Imagine if in a game they said 'hey get lost' but they meant it and then you were lost and you didn't know where you were and then you died. This is THAT GAME. Buy if you like sound of it. Expand
