Metal Arms: Glitch in the System – Consumer Guide

Scott Jones's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Strong Language, Violence

Parents are mildly cautioned. While there's nary a drop of blood in the game (the violence is all robot-on-robot), the victims do let out very human cries before being destroyed. Some of the game's content, which at first seems deceptively cutesy, could actually prove to be upsetting to younger gamers. Krunk's expletive-filled rants are all bleeped out, but any savvy 13 year old will be able to decipher what he's saying.

This large, overlong, and sometimes ridiculously challenging game will no doubt appeal to fans of FPS and third-person action games. Halo fans, fans of robot culture, and Ratchet & Clank fans might find the game interesting, but only hardcore gamers will likely stick around for the game's full 42 levels.

Budget gamers looking for a lot of game for their dollar (at publication, the game was retailing for around $30) will certainly get their money's worth.

Since none of the game's dialogue is subtitled, Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have trouble following the narrative, though objectives are provided in text via the Pause menu.
