Our Thoughts on Zoids Wild : Blast Unleashed
All of the children are huge Anime fans so its no surprise that they were all keen to take a look at the game and give it a little go.
Viggo had us in hysterics with his jumping around and his vocal noises when he was in a battle, as its on the Nintendo switch it means he can transport it with him in the car.
The graphics are as you would expect from an anime series and I think that adds to the charm of the game, the individual Zoids show great detail and I prefer the game when its on the big screen, although the children choose the portability of the switch.
I had a go at the practice mode but as predicted by the children I didn’t get very far, so I handed it back to the 7 year old to show me how to play!
The older boys enjoy the continuous battle mode, where you have to play and win 7 battles, I like the fact it means they can play and then its finished, so when its dinner time I don’t get, I just need to finish this level, and satill be waiting 30 minutes later!
It doesn’t offer online battles which I love as I am forever having to check that the younger boys are not signing into their older siblings accounts to play online!
The fighting takes place in a 3D arena, and there are 14 different areas to choose from, the more you play the better you become at learning each of the Zoids moves and attacks.
So if you are looking for a fighting type game with large detailed looking zoids, this is one for you.
