"Not Bad... but not good either"
2 stars"

You take the role of the robot D-Tritus who comes the the world called Scrapland, a world which fears and despises organics… thats us… humans. You must work in scapland and are given the only job left, because no one else will take it… A reporter for the local newspaper. So begins your story as you investigate murders, normally, this wouldn't bother robots as they can be reconstructed from the Great Database however, the victims matrices are missing, thereby making death permanent.

Though non-linear in gameplay, there is very little to do in scrapland. The missions are extremely repetitive, consisting of either photographing something or shooting down something, there is no variety. The game has sooo much untapped potential which is a shame. The cities are large and provide a lot of differing scenery to fly around in, but theres little to actually do except a single race type and combat, once again showing little variety.

If your looking for a great adventure you wont find it here. Once you get use to the controls in the first half hour, you will find the game easily loses its lustre.

Description

Scrapland is a third person action-adventure game set in a stunningly beautiful, futuristic world occupied by an amazing array of robotic characters. The play experience is driven by a solidly engaging, sometimes humorous adventure narrative. The game mechanic combines proven GTA3 style emergent action with an immersive storyline, diversity of player actions, and complete freedom of movement through the world. Throughout the game the player can: transform into any of 15 character types inheriting unique abilities, build and pilot ships with hundreds of permutations, engage in explosive combat, participate in life-on-the-line races, and freely explore a truly dynamic and living world. The game is structured in missions whose objectives are always "doing things", instead of "finding out how to do them". That is, the player will never wonder what to do, which object they need or which character they have to transform into to accomplish a mission. The game itself provides that information constantly and clearly. Fun and challenge lie in what happens and how the system reacts when the player does what they are asked to, when they use the objects needed or when they transform into the precise character. The player has total freedom of movement during most of the game time - it is a little restricted at the beginning for tutorial reasons. In Scrapland, the player can freely wander round all levels/maps, interact with all characters, drive all ships and combine, with no restriction, the main mission with any other thing the player feels like doing. The possible casuistry is huge, thanks to which the game world is perceived as living, realistic and unpredictable. Scrapland's multiplayer offers a kind of game play based in combat and speed, with the same ships the player can build in single player. Individually or by team, LAN or Internet, Scrapland establishes a new standard in high-competitive multiplayer games. Features:
  • Open-ended game play set in a unique and novel science fiction 3D world.
