I rented Zoids the day it came out.
This game is pure and utter garbage. There is no way in hell it's worthy of being a next gen title, let alone a full retail one. Horrible bland washed out graphics, insanely difficutly gameplay requiring some of the most a$$ backwards grinding you'll EVER see in a game, a story told through ONLY text, the inability to skip some of the slowest animations you'll ever see, and to top it off the full 1000 points would require at least FORTY TO SIXTY HOURS of enduring this hell.
If you bite on this, you WILL regret it. No matter how big an SRPG or Zoids fan you are, you WILL regret spending this much on it.
