Zone of the Enders – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Animated Violence

Parents, this game is rated "mature," but there isnt much to warrant the rating outside of a few cases of characters bleeding through their clothes. Theres nothing sexual or profane in the gameplay or storyline so you can rest assured that if your child likes giant robots, Enders's simple and repetitive gameplay might be a good choice.

Anime fans, remember the old saying, "be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it?" Well Enders starts off like a fan-boys dream come true only to come crashing down from the reality that the principles that go into making a good anime arent the same as those that go into making a good game. This is a game that seriously needs more variety and interactivity. However, if you cant get enough the robot dueling action that Enders offers, this still might be the title for you.

Fans of serious giant robot simulators like Mechwarrior or even Armored Core should probably beware of this title. Theres no sense of customization and feature upgrades are rather insignificant. The streamlined controls are ideal for fast and furious action, but offers very little in the way of depth.
