Metal Saga is a futuristic role-playing game that finds the world ruled by a sentient supercomputer called Noah and its mechanized minions. While Noah was eventually defeated by the remnants of humanity known as hunters, robots still overrun the land and threaten what is left of civilization. Players assume the role of an unnamed human survivor, who vows to follow in his father䀙s footsteps and become a hunter. To that end, play involves traveling to different towns and villages amidst the post-apocalyptic wasteland that serves as the game䀙s backdrop. Combat against rival machines primarily occurs inside vehicles such as tanks, with each side alternating turns and issuing commands via menus in classic console role-playing game fashion.
Once players reach town, they are free to converse with the locals, receive optional quests, and view a list of bounties to collect. Metal Saga features more than 800 events and quests in total, as well as an assortment of customization options. Players can use scrap metal from defeated enemies to forge their own items, and outfit their vehicles with enhanced weapons, engines, and armor. The developers have also added a playful sense of humor to the seemingly serious storyline, as players command the "dogs of war," canines with bazookas strapped to their backs, and use remote-controlled devices for comic effect. Twelve mini-games are included as a bonus, allowing players to win money or items in between the estimated 40+ hours of adventuring. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
