"Only for the diehard fan...."

As a hit anime in the 80's and a pretty good fanbase....this game was sadly... a bit out of time.....The other game in the series Battlecry...was a major dissapointment to many people...in robotech invasion you start out in a strange world....now before you get to learn much you are battling giant robots with streams of lazers.....Thank the allmighty gods you have infinate health....after you complete your mission you start the game in "Presant time" You go throught a tutorial and get one of the coolest things ive seen in a video game The Cyclone is a suit that forms around Locke (The main character)'s Body and allows him to transform the suit into a small motorbike....Sadly...it isnt the fastest thing but it gets you around! Now for the in depth review

Graphics: 6/10
Mediocre at best...The enimies are designed well and so is the cyclone....but sometimes there are a few glitches in the graphics.....And the characters look a little goofy when jumping in 3rd person view....But the switch between 3rd and 1st person views are a pretty good deal...the improve those demonic camera angles

Sound: 10/10
Oh So beautiful....The voice acting is pretty good....the guns sound crisp and clear....and when you are being told to do something...YOU CAN HEAR IT! *cue the amen from the church pulpit*

Controls: 5/10
MEEP...Somehow something went wrong... you jump like you are an idiot, the motorcycle is just terrible....the only truely GOOD thing about this is the auto reload so you dont have to press white...only if you choose to ^-^

Gameplay: 8/10
Pretty fun actually, though it gets repetitive...the point of the game presents itself well...the halo-esque way of getting new weapons was very nostolgic, the storyline was also engaging...but only to the diehard fan!

overall: 6/10
This game is fun the first play through....though it may get pretty boring soon..without many Xbox live games the multiplayer system is pretty useless (unless you have a thing for split screens)

Rent or buy?:
Rent for sure....buy if your a fan of the series or you liked the game when you rented it
