The craziest, wildest, most insane, most intense balls-to-the-wall hyperactive game you'll ever play of... Rock-Paper-Scissors. I don't know how much Square Enix spent making this game, but it was entirely too much. There's lavish animated cutscenes, original music commissioned from real bands, even the manual is totally crazy and styled after a metal music magazine, complete with centerfold pin-up in the middle. Then the game itself is boring as hell.

If it were actually a robot fighting game like it looks from the screenshots, there might be something of value here, but no. It's a robot training sim that's almost completely luck-based. An utter waste. At least the soundtrack is awesome.
