Collecting together two acclaimed games from the Kojima Productions vault, the Zone of the Enders HD Collection includes both the original Zone of the Enders and its sequel, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner -- both rendered in high-definition for the first time!
Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2: The 2nd Runner are the pinnacle of high speed robot action. Imagine hovering in a 360-degree battlefield. You spin your mecha around, lock onto your target, and fire away. Spotting another enemy nearby, you instantly dash over to it and eliminate it with your sword. Your guns and your blade are your weapons against swarms of enemies and massive spacecraft. This is a solid sci-fi world that looks and sounds like no other, a game whose gameplay mechanics can truly be called exhilarating. These are titles so memorable they have gained a passionate fanbase and are still talked about years after their release.
The HD remastering process has made Z.O.E. even more striking, re-igniting the thrills for long-time fans and blowing away those discovering the game for the first time. Either way, players will find a combination of hardcore gameplay and compelling story that has become all too rare in this day and age.
Razor-sharp HD Graphics Bring Out Every Detail! The games' graphical representation has taken an incredible leap up in the HD Edition. 720p capability brings fine detail to the fore in a way that was never possible in the PlayStation 2 versions. With these crisp, bright new graphics, the exhilaration of Z.O.E. is waiting to thrill you all over again. The 2D graphics and fonts have also been given an HD overhaul! No detail has been spared in bringing the player a beautiful user interface.
Upgraded from 4:3 to Full 16:9 Widescreen! A wider aspect ratio lets you see more of the action, helping you stay on top of Z.O.E.'s intense battles.
Trophies and Achievements Added PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users won't be disappointed with the inclusion of trophy/achievement support. Look forward to a whole new way to enjoy Zone of the Enders!
Pros: Drawn anime cutscenes Interesting character development and presentation Frenetic gameplay but decent controls Classic
Cons: Nothing to do with Ender's Game. Gameplay may feel dated... but there aren't exactly many games of this ilk anymore either.
Other Thoughts: So... You like anime? Interesting characters? Giant humanoid robots? Fast action? You owe it to yourself to try this. Gameplay is fun but gets quite challenging, and the cutscenes (especially in the second game) are your reward treat for finishing a level.
I played the versus mode and part of the story on a friend's Playstation, I'm excited that this hard-to-find game will be available on XBox 360!
