Games Played 02/26/2009


Zone of the Enders (2001)
Developer: Konami Computer Entertainment Japan
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 2001

The game looks pretty until you notice the lack of landscape variations.

Zone of the Enders is a mech game where you take the role of a young boy named Leo who is accidentally dropped into the cockpit of the "Jehuty" (or cool looking giant robot in plain English) when his town, located inside a space colony, is being decimated by an army of a rogue military regime. The game has that slight Neon Genesis Evangelion feel to it with the hesitant Leo being forced to become a savior when he has previously failed his "friends" during the opening movie. The game is ambitious with graphics that still look superb when I played it tonight. The controls that are highly responsive and tightly polished. The problem with the game is that it is too repetitive and you are stuck within the confines of the space colony and after a while, the stages started to look too similar to each other.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
