B Team: Metal Cartoon Squad review

Sounds like someone named this by throwing darts at a board


  • Challenging boss battles
  • Perfect for quick blasts
  • Co-op adds to the fun


  • No brains required
  • Definitely corny
  • Won't entertain for long

It%26rsquo;s always nice to boot up a game that doesn%26rsquo;t take itself too seriously. B Team: Metal Cartoon Squad is such a game, shunning any sort of war realism to deliver a cartoon shooter that%26rsquo;s like a cross between old SNES game Super Smash TV and arcade classic Gauntlet. Movement is controlled using the D-pad while shooting is on the stylus.

So, you rampage through the game%26rsquo;s 30 missions with little more to think about than killing everything that moves and picking up bonus weapons and health. Everything%26rsquo;s destroyable, which makes for good explosions too. It%26rsquo;s fairly brainless, but the quirky art style and co-op make it stand out from the DS shooter crowd.
