Metal Max Returns

Metal Max Returns, a remake of Metal Max (Famicom) for the Super Famicom, appears at first glance to be a fairly stereotypical RPG. Some careful observation and about half an hour's worth of gameplay later, and it reveals itself to be much, much more. Set in a gritty, post-apocalyptic/wild west hybrid environment, a nameless youth decides to become a Hunter, one who fights monsters and cashes in on bounties, usually with heavy artillery. Enter Metal Max's defining feature - tanks. You'll spend a lot of time playing with your tanks - twinking them out, customizing them, even attaching little baubles to their dashboards. Most of the game is spent with your tanks, but it's important that you don't ignore your human characters' development, because there will be times when you can't use your tanks.

Metal Max is light on story, but heavy on gameplay. There's a ton of stuff to do, such as hunting the weekly bounty head, improving your Hunter rank, toying with your tanks, exploring, getting a tattoo. It's really up to you to figure out what you want to make of yourself in the wide world of Metal Max, but you'll have a blast doing so!

Game's done and should be bug free. Enjoy!
