A space colony named Antilia revolving around Jupiter in the late 22nd century is attacked by a terrorist force called BAHRAM. They use Orbital Frames, or big robots with many weapons that mostly are human-like in structure, in their attack. Their mission: capture the colony and therefore taking control of two amazing new Orbital Frames being kept there. After his friends are killed by a skilled woman frame runner, or person who controls the Orbital Frames, he stumbles upon one of the new frames called Jehuty. His only purpose is to get out, but personal feelings and a few other things get in his way... Written by Sam O.

Probably one of the best games for the PS2
17 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, "Zone of the Enders" excels in just about every single category that I can think of. Gameplay, graphics, control, and the best thing about this game: its story. I admit that when I first heard of this game, I didn't pay much attention to it, but after listening to what my friend told me about it and reading several reviews, I decided to rent it from Blockbuster Video. "Zone of the Enders" takes place in the far future when Earth has set up a colony called Antilla that's orbiting Jupiter. A 14-year old boy named Leo, who after witnessing the deaths of several of his closest friends during an enemy invasion, hops into Jehuty, a giant mechanized robot and sets out to defend what is left of his home.

This game totally blew me away. Not just the beautiful graphics, but its amazing storyline. You can actually care for not just the game's young star, but for the enemies as well, the human enemies I mean. The "orbital frames" are stunningly animated and are pretty tight looking. The game's ending, which I won't dare reveal, leads to the possibility of a sequel. I really like the way that Jehuty can actually be "upgraded". All right, throughout the game, these "servers", which are usually in heavily guarded areas, you can actually download a weapons program into Jehuty's mainframe and then use them. The only problem with that is that as the game progresses and you learn to control Jehuty and use its weapons, is that the enemies actually start to become smarter as well and it can sometimes be frustrating especially if no Metatron Ore(health power-up) is present.

Complaints, of course since no game is perfect. First, the voice actors suck. You can tell just by the way the characters read their lines, that they're just reading the script and aren't really voice-acting. Second, the game is just too short because it can be beaten inside of five hours. Third, the one thing that especially seems to p*** me off, is that some people have bought this game just for the "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty" demo disc that's included with it. Nothing against MGS2, but what I mean to say is that since Hideo Kojima is a genius and all, I'm sure he put forth a lot of time and effort into making "Zone of the Enders" and "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty" the games that they are.

"Zone of the Enders" gets a 9/10
