Oh my, someone else actually knows what Metal Arms is! I've been asking for the sequels forever, it always seems like there's a good series with plenty of potential that gets cancelled. Metal Arms, Advent Rising, Too Human, and probably a couple others I can't think of at the moment.
Metal Arms was before its time, unfortunately. It came out two years before RE4, yet RE4 is given the title of "redefining third-person shooters". It was all Metal Arms. Metal Arms had that formula down way before Leon was blowing up Ganados in Spain. Shame barely anyone heard or even played it. I believe that Activision are the current owners of the IP. I hope they do something with it. --- Searching for meaning is like searching for a rhyme-scheme in a cook book. -Tim Minchin
