    A game that might be overlooked, but is well worth playing.

    As a fan the Zone of the Enders games one the PS2, I was a bit hesitant to check out the hand held game in the series on the GBA. While it is a departure for the formula of past games, I found the story compelling, and R... Read Full Review

    Very good. Story is excellent. Combat is fine. Kickin' tunes as well.

    The first Zone of the Enders is regarded as a disappointment. The second is regarded is fantastic. I guess this would stand in between those two in terms of quality. Has some child at heart moments like the firs... Read Full Review

    I love practically any turn-based strategy, but this one and one other. This game is not worth your time.

    I really loved the first Zone of the Enders game for Play Station 2 and thought it was a great idea to put this game on the game boy in a RPG format. I was wrong. At least, the way they did it was wrong. This game i... Read Full Review
