This game is fun. It’s like a cross between a free-movement fighter and an RPG. The concept is similar to MegaMan.EXE, where you’re a kid and you control this little robot thing around, except that all overworld movement is done by the kid, so there’s none of this “walk the internet” nonsense.
The sounds are alright, they work. The graphics are standard N64 polygon stuff (in-battles) and pretty above-average-SNES sprite-work for maps.
I can’t comment on the story, but I can’t imagine it being too complicated. I played this game when I didn’t know the amount of Japanese that I do now, and even if I were to play this game today, I’d still be able to tell you very little.
But it’s fun. I recommend it if you want to waste an hour screwing around with little robot people. I feel it’s better than the Gamecube one anyway.
The patch fully translates the game to English. It has some issues that make emulators crash at certain points in the game, which will be resolved in a future update.
