STAFF REVIEW of Shoot Many Robots (Xbox 360 Arcade)

Shoot Many Robots Box art Hi there, my name is Really Important Personality Operational Functioning Friend. You can call me RIP OFF for short. I'm here to tell you about allllllllll the wonders you can find in the new Ubisoft arcade title Shoot Many Robots! We've got lots of guns, and even more bigger guns, plus we've got more armor clothing to sell and all at discounted prices. Well maybe not discounted but the prices are low, well not compared to anyone else but to us they're rock bottom! Some call me a copy of something called CLAPTRAP but I think they're just jealous. Follow me as we dive into the twisted and violent world of Shoot Many Robots and remember, if you have any questions, we don't care.

In Shoot Many Robots you'll play the role of P.Walter Tugnut a deluded redneck who believes that robots are taking over the world so he decided to stock up on two essentials: Beer and ammo. Upon watching your faithful truck become a fond memory at the hands of merciless robots, Tugnut decides that the robots have crossed the line and sets out in his RV of death to kill every robot he can find. This is where some of the new innovations come into play as you can purchase more explosive gear as your character levels up. Weapons such as M16's are nice, but a massive alien laser beam is even better. Remember these are on sale for a limited time! Well, not really limited time because there is no sale. Not only can you upgrade to some more lethal firepower, but you can also upgrade your clothing to provide more protection against the never-ending onslaught of violent robots (unless you chose to wear fishnet stockings and a cowboy hat, but hey we don't judge).


While some may say that the graphics are a styled copy of some game called Borderlands, I like to think that they are artistically unique. The scenery is laid out in competitive arenas where you side scroll across 2D levels and each level contains multiple stages set in a cell-shaded-cartoon feel. The sounds themselves Im sorry to say leave a lot to be desired but who needs good sound when you're blasting away hundreds of vicious robots right? Even though this may become mundane and a bit boring, thats when it's time to team up with three other robotcist rednecks and beat the ever loving s**t out of some robots.

When explosions and gunfire are going all over the screen, thats when you know you're having a fun time! Even though all of this may be fun and entertaining there are some drawbacks that take away from the overall quality feel. For starters you can't upgrade your weapons, armor, or even aiming, so your crazed nonstop assault will just be that but as you progress the explosions and gunfire will be bigger. Since you can't upgrade your aiming there will be some times when you really won't know what you're aiming at given that robots will be attacking you from all sides.

To say that Shoot Many Robots is a cheap copy of Borderlands is kind of unfair because of what our game provides. We provide hundreds of different types of weapons, hundreds of different types of armor, fluid cell shady cartoony style graphics, and a gazillion robots! See? No similarities at all! For 800 MS points, we're also cheaper! If you are into games such as the classic game Metal Slug or other 2D side scrolling massive carnage action style games, then listen to RIP OFF and purchase Shoot Many Robots!
