Metal Arms: Glitch in the System
On GameCube/PS2/Xbox | By Vivendi

There's something about robot-on-robot warfare that's a little uninvolving, especially when those robots are borderline cutesy as opposed to grimacing Terminator types. But Metal Arms turned that around with some of the loudest, punchiest, most relentless combat of the generation. Even those looks turned out to be a front for some tongue-in-cheek excessive violence – enough to have had the Daily Mail up in arms, if they cared about scrap metal.

Like its characters, the game may have been left out to rust, but it's built to last.
