This is one of the cases when i wish Steam had an option for a neutral review beside positive and negative.

This game was awesomely fun 10 years ago when i picked it up on Xbox. Now, for 2014, when we have such a developed game industry, with so many choices - not quite...The missions are simply boring. So is the story. There is no difficulty options, and the missions are so easy...I've spent less than 7 hours to finish this game, and 4 of this hours i've spent just on 2 maps (from a total of 13 if i remember it right), the only ones challenging enough. The rest of them (11), i've finished from the very first attempt. They almost all revolve around protecting a city or a group of vehicles. Gun Metal also has no replayability value due to it being so easy to finish, and the lack of achievements or in-game challenges. Considering the release year - it has decent graphics and the maximum resolution is 1600x900.

With that being said - Gun Metal is still worth to try, especially if you own an old PC and dont have a big choice for the games to run on it, but only on a big sale. Overwise i would recommend to skip it. There are better options for $10 instead of a 7 hour lazy port game with no replayability value.

An early example of mechas in video games that only asks that you destoy other robots while keeping yours alive. It's very arcade-y where you can destroy anything in your path and it is relatively quick. The mouse + keyboard aim scheme isn't hard to learn but can be a challenge to use at times especially when you're flying around extremely fast. It's a decent game if you're into the style. (Check some gameplay videos online).

Obligatory score: It's a decade old so... 7/10?

Gun Metal is one of the best open world futuristic aircraft shooters I have ever played & I'll try to explain what makes this early 2000 game a good way to pass time. (The game is sorta like Transformers since you transform into a fighter jet all the time)

Pros:

1. Lots of enemies to blow up (The amount of crap you destroy is amazing for one robot)

2. Lots of weapons to try out

3. Good Military Music

4. The programming is good

5. Different types of enemies to fight on each mission (There are 14 challenging missions in total)

Cons:

1. The mission briefing voice is ♥♥♥♥ing annoying

2. Since you have to do missions all the time by following the captain's commands it feels sorta restrictive to explore sometimes

Overall this classic is a must buy & I suggest supporting the people who rereleased this wonderful game. (Sorry for the short explanation but I don't have much to say about this game) http://www.kiss-ltd.co.uk/

I've played Gun Metal as a 12 year old kid and absolutely loved it - I mean, the game lets you control a transformable mech with badass firepower and nice looks, how cool is that?! Also, back in a day it featured some really decent graphics, so I loved it even more, as I was able to play it on my new PC without any problems. Well, the times have changed and so did my way of perceiving games. Gun Metal is just as adorably oldschool and dynamic as it is monotonous and frustrating. The difficulty is high, the missions are terribly repetetive, the story basically doesn't exist (ok we are under attack by somebody, here take this cool transforming mech while we remain absolutely ♥♥♥♥ing useless, lol I know, we were able to build this damn thing but we cant fight for ♥♥♥♥, so yeah, you are our only hope, please shoot all the bad guys), and the game (or at least the Steam version, I don't recall such difficulties... well, ♥♥♥♥, 12 years ago) is pretty damn bugged. During the loading screen for the 6th mission the game crashed to desktop and after restarting it showed my savegame as "damaged", thus unable to load. That sucked. Other than that, the game is still fun, mostly thanks to its dynamicity and the sense of power it gives (lots of weapons, explosions and the coolness of a transforming bot). I bought it on Indie Gala for $1,40 because my nostalgia told me to do so. If you are reading this and want to put your hands on a cheap digital copy of this notsobad game, I advice checking http://store.indiegala.com/.

A decade after it's initial release, and Gun Metal is still awesome. For me, this game is a masterclass in focussed design. It doesn't try to be clever, with lots of gimmicks that are only there for their own sake. It just gives you good, solid, arcade-style action, and it does it extremely well. Your mech isn't loaded with three dozen special features that you completely forget about in the heat of the action. It does a limited number of things, but those are the only things you need it to do, and they all feel relevant. Running, strafing, transforming, boosting, barrel-rolling to dodge fire, and all the while firing, firing, firing on the enemy.

Yes, it does betray it's Xbox origins in the slightly awkward mouse control and limited graphics options, but honestly, once you dive in and get blasting, it all feels very natural. The barrel-rolling to dodge in jet mode feels particularly intuitive, as it's on the keys you use for strafing in mech mode (A and D by defaut as you'd expect). And you can always plug a control pad in if you find the mouse control a bit too hazy.

As far as I'm aware there's only one voice in the game, the guy who gives you orders, and he puts in a good performance. Maybe not award-winning, but solid, with simple dialogue, no ridiculous cringe-inducing histrionics, and status updates and encouragements as you progress through each mission. It's nice to actually be told you're doing well instead of being berated for something or other all the time! =P

In closing, if you want some simple, straightforward action with just enough depth to be engaging without being overwhelming, Gun Metal is for you.
