    It’s refreshing in its earnest nature, and is actually more hopeful than nihilistic. But it is still on the simple and tropey side.

    Combat is easily the strongest part of Metal Max Xeno. It’s quite awesome seeing different developers take on the turn-based combat fans of the genre know and love, and modernize it in different ways.

    Postapocalyptic RPG mixing elements from Mad Max, Terminator and Armored Core with old-fashioned mechanics, storytelling and visuals.

    I'm glad to see the Metal Max series make a comeback in the west. However, Metal Max Xeno's simplistic nature, monotonous campaign, and archaic presentation definitely detract from its more satisfying elements.

    Although METAL MAX Xeno offers an intriguing mix of tank-based and on-foot battles, its low-budget and adherence to JRPG traditions makes it feel like a relic of the bygone age. The characters are largely forgettable and sometimes embarrassing. Then there's the story, which is competently told and not much else. Still, for whatever it's worth, the journey is a pleasant one. The player's experience won't be bogged down by needlessly long load times or a mind-numbing user interface. This post-apocalyptic trek, much like any decent vacation, is designed to be relaxing and convenient.

    While some of the tank building and character class systems in Metal Max Xeno are moderately interesting, nothing else in this RPG is remarkable enough to stand out, which makes this a difficult game to recommend. At least the game's relatively short run-time and budget price means it's not a tremendous investment for those curious enough to check it out.

    Metal Max Xeno lacks just about all of the characteristics that made the series interesting to begin with.

As for the music, it stays real to the series and still sounds great. I played the game for a whole 30 hours sitting, that is a first for me, I was hooked very hard. The only big complaint I can find is that the Trophies are untranslated, not that it is such a problem for me as I played all games in the series so I had to learn to Understand Japanese at least a bit. It's a 10/10 for me a great entry in the series that got me hooked. Expand
