Summary

Short but sweet.

The Good

Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 is a Grade A game in my book. The graphics and environments are beautiful. This in itself is nothing extraordinary but those are just the bones. The meat of the game is the great story and acting that you rarely see in computer games. Heavy Metal is easy to get into thanks to a easy control system and the fact that you can use two weapons at once and do combos makes it even better.

The Bad

The only problem is the size of the game. The action is fastpaced and way too linear. The game is over before you know it. This is the only fact that draws away from the draw of the game. I hope they make a sequel.

The Bottom Line

Heavy Metal, with its scantily clad heroine and third person perspective will easily draws comparisons to Tomb Raider. It is much more than that with a great engine, great story, great controls, and is great fun.
