Neo GeoVideo Games (Apr, 1992)
Alles in allem besticht “Robo Army“ durch perfekte technische Gestaltung, die dem Spielwitz eines ansonsten beschränkten Genres viel Flair verleiht. Schade nur, daß das Spiel bereits nach knapp einer Stunde komplett durchgespielt ist.
It's a good looker. Robo Army has some really classy graphics, with massive robots charging all over the place both on foot and on big motorbikes. Sound effects are superb - meaty punches and kicks and some hot metal tracks playing away in the background. Robo Army is similar in terms of look and the way it plays to Burning Fight, itself a complete rip-off of the classic Final Fight. Trouble is, it's not as good as either, with only a few moves to put into action. Robo Army is very good, but Burning Fight is a better example of the genre.

The characters are about as huge as they could possibly be for a game like this, and impressive scaling is used to render incoming vehicles and transforming bosses. The bosses assume some interesting forms, like a giant yapping robotic dog constructed entirely from smashed cars. Robo Army's post-apocalyptic urban scenery isn't anything you haven't seen before, but its attention to detail is commendable. The clanking metal sound effects are terrific, and the synthesized music isn't bad either. As one of the more affordable titles for the Neo Geo, Robo Army should satisfy your appetite for destruction.

Tja, hier ist schon was geboten, jede Feindberührung läßt den Screen erzittern, noch dazu wird das Gemetzel von prima Musik samt Sprachausgabe und Stereo-FX untermalt. Scrolling und Grafik sind vom Feinsten, dito die pflegeleichte Steuerung. Nur leider hat das Spielprinzip einen Bart, der dreimal um den Äquator reicht, und auch das Gameplay selbst ist nicht gerade eins der abwechslungsreichsten. Das Schlimmste aber ist, daß geübte Bildschirm-Rowdies das drei Hunnis schwere Modul (auf der einfachsten Stufe) locker an einem Abend durchzocken. Deshalb kann man Robo Army letztlich nur Millionären mit Aggressionsüberschuß empfehlen aber denen sei es dringend ans Herz gelegt!

It would be better if there was a choice of selectable characters, but Robo Army is a well presented scrolling beat 'em up that offers plenty of entertainment. A good range of enemies (and a number of ways to defeat those enemies) keeps the action interesting and there are a number of fun boss encounters. There's not a lot of incentive to replay once cleared, but the usual Hi Score and Caravan modes adds some replayability as you look to improve your scores. In might be a while before you boot it up again, but whether playing alone or with a friend each playthrough provides plenty of fun. For those looking for some old school arcade brawling action, Robo Army is a good pick.

I don’t think it was possible to really make shovelware for the NEO GEO, not as we know it. It was too expensive of a console to throw literally anything on, and SNK had the advantage of testing some of these games out in arcades before bringing them to home console. But Robo Army has a lot of trademark stamps of something being rushed and dumped. It’s a concept that had been done before, even done before on NEO GEO. The characters and plot could have been inspired by anything. Combat is weak, graphics are ok, and the whole game can be finished in less time than it takes to watch an episode of West World. If you must continue the NEO GEO collection and want to try every brawler there is, then grab Robo Army. But if you’re looking for a fresh take on literally anything, then this title simply doesn’t compute.

Robo Army is a great-looking, solid beat-'em-up. It would make a first-rate addition to any arcade. However, it doesn't bring anything new to the fight game. If you live with this fighter at home, you may soon crave more - more moves, more types of enemies, more types of power-ups. If you're seriously itching for a Neo Geo fight, Robo Army can accommodate you.
Neo GeoDefunct Games (Feb 28, 2004)
While Robo Army may be no Final Fight, it's also not nearly as horrible as the Legend of Success Joe! At least Robo Army has a few twists through it's story telling, and the game isn't really all that bad, if you can get past the all too simple game play.
A short sequence breaks up the action as players repel down a wire. This is one of the better moments in the game, as the mechanics, hit detection, and the basic game engine works. If this were like the entire game, this would rank high in the original, non one-on-one fighting games for console. As it sadly is, it misses from a lack of any feeling of impact from the thrown punches, amongst all the other problems addressed here.
