Metal Arms: Glitch in the System.

Just an unparalleled level of variety of gameplay, humor and freshness.  Just when you settle into a groove, they throw a new opportunity to be clever at you, whether it be a vehicle mission, arena mission, super boss mission or ????

I'm on the final battle level and have totally enjoyed this game.  Far more than I expected (despite the raves about it on the boards).

It's also a LONG game and has taken me several weeks to get through (of course I'm not a power gamer).  What a great time.

The designers on this one should be so proud of the work they did and again, hoping against hope, that this title gets a sequel that it so richly deserves.

Once again, I recommend this title to just about everyone who has a gaming console.  It's just brilliant!  Even better than just some silver medal (Ron Burke, whowever he is, needs to be fired). slywink

It is on the cusp of permanent status in my collection which is the highest complement a game can get from me.  We'll see how it ends!

Incidentally, according to my XBOX word document (yes, I'm a geek) this is the 40th game I've played on the XBOX platform.  What a great investment it has been!

If a Word document makes you a geek, I wonder what this says about me... http://games.coopasonic.com/

No, those games aren't for sale anymore, they've all been ebay'ed or traded in already, I'm not pimping anything except my geekness.

On topic, never played Metal Arms, I guess the box shots weren't interesting enough.

Well, you never know, it might get a sequel.  But they've been bought by Blizzard and are currently hard at work on Starcraft: Ghost smile

That's fine with me! But it'd better be their next project!

The game was "eh" to me. Never really grabbed me, then I got stuck in a junkyard several levels in and said screw it.

Does anyone above the age of 10 actually use the word "awesome?"

Having passed 10 several times over, I feel fully qualified to say yes. Awesome is what comes next after great in my book.

I use the word awesome.

Also: Yes, Metal Arms is an excellent game. It had a great sense of humor.

If the game has a flaw it's that it does get pretty damned difficult in places, and there were several sections of the game where I ended up wandering around wondering what the hell I was supposed to do.

But literally everything else in between was so awesome I just didn't care.
