Zone of the Enders HD Collection Review | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: There is a time and place for niche titles. Games that encroach the foundation of established franchises with quirks can fail easily, but every once in a while we get a rejuvenating entry whose creative liberties pave the path of monotony with welcoming ingenuity and spirit. In 2001, Zone of the Enders premiered on PS2 systems worldwide, but its immediate success was a result of the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty demo that came packaged with the game. But it didn’t take long before players got sucked into ZOE’s unique approach to mecha combat and it soon became a cult classic. A sequel was inevitable and in 2003 ZOE: The 2nd Runner made its debut, fixing many of the predecessor’s shortcomings and marking the series as one of the most cherished franchises of the last generation. Now over a decade later, everyone’s beloved Jehuty receives an HD facelift, but how does it stand the test of time? (PS3, Xbox 360, Zone of the Enders HD Collection) 8.5/10
