One of the best has to be the robot from Virocop

Not sure about the worst... I'm no expert when it comes to robots in games

That's the one - I'd been wondering what his name is.

Well... The appearance is OK, but:

- it's too big and yet its energy depletes in seconds,

- it cannot properly aim its weapon,

- its movement is clumsy and slow (making it almost impossible to avoid enemy fire).

The Dalek thing from Captive 2 for looking crap.

best:
Walker for looking as cool as ED-209 itself.
Robocod for being a fish.
The Probe droid in Empire Strikes back for using ring-modulation.
The Mechanoids from Wipe Out for being in Wipe Out.

Not sure about the "best", but the "coolest" robot is the main character or characters ( 2 player mode ) you control in "Ninja Warriors"

As far as the lamest !?. Don't really have one in my mind, but then there really isn't much in my mind at the moment, its crammed full of things i need to do and focus on.

Sacrelidge!!

i think its a great game with great speed, just a bit too hard in places. at least that keeps it interesting though.... 1000 times better than James pond or Operation Starfish!


btw, didnt really mean it about the captive ed209 thing... i guess they are kinda cool, just a bit obvious!

hehe, i didnt actually think you were! i just though RoboCod deserved a bit of defense as i actually like the game, but as i say, not really the other 2


it was just coincidence i changed my mind about the Captive robot honest!
