Macross Vo Xp
I've loockin' this game for ages. Two day ago I found it an awesome blog with all the information about this anime game and now I wanna share with you: http://macrossvoxp.blogspot.com
I wish I could say something nice about the game. Unfortunately, it's really not that great. I'd only reccomend it to fellow Macross fans who are starved for a game that puts them in the cockpit of a Valkyrie.
Actually, it does do some fantastic things with inertia. If someone does ever get around to making a great Macross flight sim, I hope they do keep that in mind.
But aside from that, the graphics were sub-par even for the time. There's only about three different kinds of areas (deep space, rings of Saturn, close to Jupiter, if I recall), you only get the VF-1, and if I remember right the Zentradi only throw battlepods, space fighters, and two kinds of ships. Also, your own ship is supposed to be a Megaroad class ship, but the model is that of the original Macross. That's like playing a Star Trek game where they say your ship is the Excelsior, but the in-game model is the Enterprise.
Really, I'd love to see a fantastic Macross flight sim made, but if you have a modded PS1 or PS2, Macross VF-X2 is a much better game, if much more arcade style, and I've heard good things about the Macross PS2 game.
I've completed VF-X2 years ago, but for what I can recall it's the best Macross game I've seen and played. I still need to search for the PS2 game though...
I actually preferred the first VFX; I found the second game a bit tougher to play. But that's just my opinion.
If anybody really wants a macross fix you could always go with Another Century's Episode 2 where it plays a big part in some of the games scenarios. Also you get to do the assault on Gorg Bedolzaa's fortress in the last mission with Do You Remember Love playing in the background.
meh. if you want to play macross, just get homeworld and the Macross Mod. :p
Heh. The Homeworld Macross Mod is fantastic, but it's no Valkyrie simulator. Most Macross fans really just want to hop in the cockpit of their favourite variable fighter.
I'm really hoping that the Homeworld 2 mod surfaces some time. I've seen screenshots, and heard tantalizing details from those working on it, but nothing ever seemed to go anywhere with it.
mmm...you do have a point.
But what your proposing would give you some akind to Planetside Universe with the flying Mecha on the Vasu(?) Side (but without real hardcore functions or the transformations)
but i suppose you can get a compromise, grab a modern fighter simulation game, with Variable Fighter Mod, then when you get close to the ground, quickly switch to a Mecha Simulation game with a Macross Variable Fighter mod....rinse then repeat...
Seriously, it just needs a Mecha simulation game with a total mod. unfortunately, Mecha simulation been on the decline, the last great mecha simulation for the PC was "Heavy Gear 2" in my opinion.
It's almost impossible to find that game legally, and for downloads, it doesn't work well on XP let alone on my 64bit version.
ahh...the only reason to have Windows 98...
mmm..must be my imagination....anyway like i was saying, we need more hardcore mecha simulations...
mind you, that does look nice, but it's abit on the arcadey side, i want more simulation elements put into it....
Macross Robotech VOXP PC Anime Multiplayer Game
According to yokokanno and radd post, I bring to you information about the updates about this game.
First of all, we have Macross VO. After that, became Macross VOXP and nowadays thanks to gabriel brooks and Joseph Lanza from United States we have Robotech VOXP Total Conversion Mod
For more information goto the link Yokokanno has posted (the first post). You can translate that website to the english and many languages.
voxp is good for vs play. I played a few LAN tourneys a while ago and it was really fun and that's where it shines. Story mode is meh. VFX was pretty poor IMO. VFX2 was entertaining but far too easy. BTW both were PS1 games
SDF Macross (Ntsc-J) for ps2 is the best Macross game I've played.
