Game Description and Comments

Zero is a free sci-fi mech RPG where players are pilots of robotic technology instead of slayers of dragons and rats. As of this writing Zero is still in alpha testing but is playable. For anybody unfamiliar with testing stages for games alpha is before both open and closed beta testing. Although the mech/robot subgenre in online games is not exactly new (see RF Online) it appears to be picking up steam after the Transformers movie as MechQuest another mech RPG is also currently in alpha testing and playable.

You can tell that Zero is still in the early stages of development simply by the fact that some of the confirmation messages are in Chinese with no translation. Beyond that however the game has a great look to it with colorful anime-style robots and backgrounds. The game is very simple to get started as you just choose your pilot from a list of named characters and then choose whether you want a melee or ranged robot. You then get game play tips from messages and by talking to NPCs. Movement is a little awkward first but you can learn it rather fast and can even automatically navigate to some locations. For example I chose to go to a “lottery” at a warehouse and my unit just started moving there on its own. A message appeared during my traveling asking if I wanted to stop or not.

Combat is very simple and can be found very quickly. In fact expect lots of combat ala Diablo where you just jump into a group of monsters and start hacking away. The two best aspects of Zero are the funnel system and the transformation system. The funnel system allows players to control up to 3 units at once and the transformation system allows the mechs to transform into plethora of different units such as dinosaurs and various vehicles. All that said Zero is a fun sci-fi themed free MMO that should only improve as the game continues through its development stages.
