You will be hard pressed to find a better action game on the GBA. The fact that the game features Astro Boy is actually a bonus. Anyone that likes action and robots, (and who doesn't?) is certain to enjoy Astro Boy: Omega Factor.
Buenísimo, no le pongo un diez por poco. Buenos gráficos, muy fluido, buen diseño artístico, buena música, jugabilidad tremenda. Un poco corto pero invita a jugarlo una segunda vez para desbloquear la historia completa y algunas fases especiales. El único pero es que la dificultad a veces puede ser frustrante. La historia es sorprendentemente buena para este tipo de juego. Una verdadera joya oculta.
For anyone familiar with Tezuka's works (anime or manga) this will be a fantastic game with a fun and challenging gameplay with great references to his legacy.
I really enjoyed unexpectedly finding some of the most iconic Tezuka's characters in this game. Both the gameplay and the visuals were great for a Gameboy game. All this combined makes this a must-play experience for anyone with a Gameboy (or emulator), even if you're not familiar with Tezuka's works the story and visuals alone are enough to satisfy you.
The game doesn't drag for very long so the gameplay doesn't become repetitive even if there aren't many different powers. Good replayability too since it offers an alternative ending.
One of the best GBA games the system has to offer. I was quite surprised I liked this game as much as I did. The beautiful spritework, the shockingly good story, the catchy music, the fun gameplay mechanics, its got all the components **** game pumping through its veins, making this an easy to recommend game to at least try out.
Finishing the game however is a tougher to recommend ordeal. The game requires multiple playthroughs of the same exact levels and cutscenes sometimes, and like many Sega games, it isn't afraid to be downright cheap in later stages with bad enemy placements, ludicrous damage, all for the sake of padding out the game length.
While metacritic considers a 7 a moderate score, I disagree with this. For me a 5 is an average not good but not bad game. A 6 is above average, with a 7 being even better than that. A 7 is a damn solid game for my review metric, and this game gets so much right with such a genuine sense of fun that I strongly recommend anyone to try this game. Sure it has plenty of flaws, but much like Sega's own Sonic series, these flaws are worth putting up with for the charm and fun this game has. Don't sleep on this one. As I said, its one of my favorite GBA games ever., and who knows? It could become one of your favorites too.
