Now that the dust has settled are any of the robotech games good? I remember thinking pick related had some good moments. Battlecry the cel shaded one I couldn’t beat and got filtered by.
Battlecry is good but several missions just straight up suck ass. That fucking Cat's Eye escort mission is PTSD-inducing of course, but the desert level where you defend the stadium from Zentraedi rebels is just as bad.
>>19930933Battlecry is great, Invasion is mediocore
>>19930997>>19930957I got filtered by some early level in space where you are fighting a fleet and defending some ships, and there is a mech or something you have to fight. Simply couldn’t beat it. The Gameboy game was alright.
>>19931033I was also filtered by that same level when I was a kid. Managed to beat it coming back to the game years later, but my best memories of that game are just replaying the city level over and over.
>>19931087Even as an adult I couldn’t beat it. I don’t know if I just sucked or if there was a strategy I didn’t pick up on. I never understand why games have weird difficulty spikes in the first hour of a game like that. the art style was really cool though. I remember playing it using cheat codes as a kid to see the other levels. some city level where it’s sunset and you are fighting walkers on foot is what I remember most vividly.
>>19930933I don't remember if I beat Battlecry via cheats, but it was pretty good.That said, the fact that Kiyoria was a yandere completely flew over my child head.
>>19930933One boss filtered me hard and I could not for the life of me figure out how to damage or beat her/it
Battlecry is kinda neat, not many robot games do cel shading like that.the GBA one is pretty weak sitting next to DYRL on the SS/PS1 and Scrambled Valkyrie on the SFCnever tried Invasion, heard it was sorta okay and it's not like there's a lot of other games on either side of the Pacific for Mospeada so you take what you can get
>>19930933They were all garbage.
>>19930933>any of the robotech games good?The Crystal Dreams rom for the N64 was pretty neat. It could had set the bar high for Battlecry.
>>19934219Did you play it? That cockpit looks cool but might have been too restrictive a view for a game like that
Hopefully we get some Macross games over here in the west finally.
>>19934504if you build the game with that view in mind it could workiirc that was basically how Tie Fighter and Wing Commander looked?
>>19932386Invasion is one of those post Halo ps2 era fps games that doesn't incorporate any of the tweaks that made halo work on consoles and doesn't do anything particularly interesting. It's like 40K firewarrior in that it's functional but completely bland and uninteresting in its execution.
>>19937006So true about the mechanics. The story was interesting at least and it had an alternate ending from your choices in the game
>>19937117>>19937006The motorcycle suit was cool fuck you but yeahit was a bland game and it had boring enemies that being said the game was a decent length
Jack Archer lives
>>19934219so they were clearly trying to create a wing commander expy
>>19930933robotech is better than macrosseveryone knows this
>>19937406>19937406>>19937412>19937412>>19937438>>19937438fuck, robotech is dead
