Custom Robo 


Family Friendly Gaming has already sounded off on the Nintendo DS version of Custom Robo (Custom Robo Arena). I am the kind of person who likes to look back at history and see where a franchise came from. So I got the green light to do a review on the Gamecube version of this franchise. In some ways Custom Robo is a role playing game, and in other ways it is just another run of the mill violent video game. Players use these little robots, and fight it out similar to the Pokemon monster fights. Characters are competitive, and can customize their little robots with different weapons, speed boost, flight, etc. Arena fighting is the core of the gameplay, and players will run around talking to people just to open up the latest fight.

There is a lot of violence in Custom Robo. The concept is digital violence, but I felt pretty numb after playing this Gamecube video game. The biggest shocker to me while reviewing Custom Robo is the attire on a lot of the females. Their enticement to lust problem hurts Nintendo’s image with families. The graphics section of this video game was a huge disappointment.

The sounds in Custom Robo are an improvement over the graphics. The techno music is either hit or miss with players. If you like techno then you will enjoy the music, however if techno gives you a headache then this Gamecube game will be a bitter experience. There is some sexual content in the dialogue as characters are asking other characters for dates, and comments on how good someone looks. None of this content is really needed, and draws the score down.

If you can handle the bad content of this game, and the game play issues that are addressed in the next paragraph you may find some replay value to Custom Robo. I feel your money is better spent on games with good content. There are over two hundred specialized parts for the robots.

Custom Robo gets very repetitive. The player runs around talking to people, and triggering fights. The fights consist of getting them before they get you. Aggressive players will be the winners more often than not. There is little strategy in the repetitive fights. All in all Custom Robo feels like a very hollow experience that only the niche ultra violent gamers may be interested in.

The put you to sleep, over the top violence hurts Custom Robo in so many ways. The secondary problem is the enticement to lust. If gamers want to have lasting relationships with women, they need to reject this junior high image of women, and mature to an appropriate comprehension of the opposite sex. I was embarrassed to be seen playing Custom Robo, and it was a chore to review it. I am glad that Nintendo dropped the enticement to lust in the Nintendo DS version. Any future sequels should improve the violence as well.
