Summary

A perfect example of "All flash, and no substance".

The Good

For one thing, the graphics are incredible for the SNES. The game even has frigging FMVs. The sound is also amazing for the system, I would listen to this stuff on my PSP. That's all I like, though......

The Bad

As soon as you start the first round, the game instantly rockets downward. The first problem I noticed is the pathetic A.I. you can win the ENTIRE game by pressing the medium kick button. I just gave the most useful tactic. NO JOKE. The animation is as stiff as a wooden board. The Multiplayer is best described as unplayable, because the characters are so unbelievably unbalanced, and you can only play as the blue guy who beats the drums. It's tedious as ALL HELL.

The Bottom Line

This is a shining example of what polish can to to human minds, I didn't buy the game when it came out, because I could see the warning signs a mile away. (Over hype, people.) This proves that graphics don't make the game.

Graphics:10/10 Sound:9/10 Gameplay:3/10 Replay Value:2/10 Fun Factor:0/10

THE VERDICT IS: 1 1/2 stars out of 5

Don't even bother, Rise Of The Robots is just not worth your time.
