    A polished, well put together remaster of a game that never really got a fair shake during its original release. If you like mecha punching each other or the idea of piloting one in VR is your thing you can do a lot worse than giving Zone of the Enders The 2nd Runner: Mars a go.

    Zone of the Enders 2 The 2nd Runner: Mars is a great recreation of a game that was amazing back in its day, and while not all of it stands up to the test of time, more than enough does to make it worth hopping in to a mech and lighting up the skies with burning robot shrapnel.

    When it comes down to it, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner is an outdated game that deserved the praise it received on first release, but it falls quite a bit short of the standards we’ve set for games in the modern day. For those of you who have already fallen in love with the game at some point during the past fifteen years, you will not be disappointed by the port. It updates the graphics without sacrificing style and maintains most of the rest of the game in its original form. For those of you who haven’t played it but have heard good things, I wouldn’t recommend against playing it. What I would recommend is playing a few older games before playing this one.

    Fast-paced mecha action game with great aesthetics, but problems with controls and story.

    More than a basic remastered, ZoE: The 2nd runner : M∀RS tries to bring VR to the original game released 15 years ago. Unfortunately, this part isn't well executed. Still, ZoE remains great to play, and the 4K support with HD textures is a plus.

    Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner --- M∀RS is one of the best looking mech games out there, despite being a remaster of a 15-year-old game. Its fast, flashy combat still looks and feels good, but is constantly undermined by an extremely unwieldy camera. With its short, linear campaign, dull story, and terrible dialogue, The 2nd Runner seems stuck in 2003, despite its slick graphical upgrade.

    Decided to give it a shot after there were launch issues with the PS3 ZoE HD collection. The game had very low audio once I launched. IDecided to give it a shot after there were launch issues with the PS3 ZoE HD collection. The game had very low audio once I launched. I cranked my audio up and maxed out everything in-game - still very quiet. Uninstalled and refunded, as there doesn't seem to be a fix for this problem yet and I don't have the patience to figure it out. Expand
