Robot Alchemic Drive? I've been wanting to play that for some time.
Absolutely loved it. It was a great B-game, with the great dialog to match. And a pretty cool control scheme, too.
I suprised myself in the fact that as soon as I saw "RAD" in the title I immediately thought "Robot Alchemic Drive"....
I almost feel ashamed for some reason...despite it being a rather fun/decent game.
RAD is one of the few games that capture the 80's SUPER ROBOT action quite well.
The controls are quite innovative, very responsive, and the action is nonstop. If you can put aside the repetitive Volton baddie of the week storyline and silly voice acting then you've found a REAL diamond in the rough for the PS2.
I'm glad I found a copy for $10 at Gamestop a few years ago.
RAD kicked ass, one of my favorite ps2 games actually. Kinda sad that there hasn't been anything comparable since.
Speaking of mech games (sorry to kinda change the topic a bit)...did anyone ever play Steel Batallion?
Now THAT was a mech game.
Never owned it, but had always wanted to..was finally able to play it at a friend's friend's house. Was pretty fun, albeit somewhat difficult (going for the ultra realistic and all that).
If I can ever track down a complete copy (box, controller, and game) for a decent price (around 100-150) I'd be all over it.
I played the demo of it and loved it. Never picked up the full game though.
The "team" that worked on RAD just released Earth Defense Force 2017 for the 360.
It's a somewhat similar....but as you said NOTHING has been comparable since.
I'm probably way off..but is that that scifi b-movie sorta thing? With the alien insects and what not?
If so, that looks pretty slick.
If not..what is it?
That's the one.
EDF is, also, a GREAT game. It should only be 20 in stores now, and i'd definitely recommend it to anyone.
EDF! EDF! YEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That game doesn't remind me of RAD at all, just because the same people made a different game, doesn't mean I wanna play it.
Nope, definitely not similar to this:
The foot missions don't remind of you the ones in RAD?
I think it looks pretty much the same......except with a souped up engine.
RAD!!! Ico anyone?
I believe there was a sequel to RAD (Actually a sequel to a PSOne game) called Remote Control Dandy SF but only in japan. And also they released Tetsujin 28 Go in a similar fashion though instead of using the analog sticks you used the face buttons to attack (You hold the buttons to change attacks. Not too great) and you only use the left analogue stick to move. But RAD was a great game. If there were more playable mechs. it would've been better.
Hell yes, I loved the clumsy-yet-fun way you controlled the robots in that game. everything felt massive, and if you guys still have it, did you know you could "throw" yourself? That is, if you positioned your character on the ground, you could make your own robot pick you up and throw the shit outta you across the level. We had so much fun with that game. We'd play two players, but instead of competing, we'd just destroy the city and mess around with our player characters.
RAD is rad!!!!
That was mecha combat game!
That game rocked.
One of my favorite games of all time, since then the logo became my sig
