Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS is a solid remaster that fans of the original shouldn’t hesitate to pick up. Having said that, the game hasn’t aged all that well. Combat can quickly get repetitive, and new abilities are hardly used before another new one comes along. Top it all off with a campaign that only takes 6-10 hours to complete, new players may wonder what all the fuss was about when the original released (especially with the script’s hilariously bad translation).
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner - Mars may have flown under the radar in 2003 but it now has the chance to shine again 15 years later. Just know that the budget price reflects the fact that not a whole lot has been added: so if you didn't like it then you won't suddenly be smitten.
The true recommendation of this game will come down to your attitude on older games. As I mentioned, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS has had nearly two decades of development since it first released, and more than a few strides were made in game design. If you are interested in the DNA of content creators and preserving the feel of these increasingly-retro titles, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS will be for you.
