Ro­bot wars

EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

In an early boss fight, War­ren faces a gi­ant bipedal ro­bot rem­i­nis­cent of Robocop’s ED-209. Strik­ing the unit’s legs doesn’t in­flict any dam­age, but builds a Threat Anal­y­sis me­ter. Once full, the droid switches from phys­i­cal attacks to in­ter­mit­tent bar­rages of rock­ets which, if you time your dodges cor­rectly, can be guided down onto it, tem­po­rar­ily dis­abling it. Strike while it’s down and you’ll ex­pose the AI unit, and can in­flict some real dam­age – the process is re­peated once more and War­ren is vic­to­ri­ous. This, we’re told, is only one way of felling the boss, how­ever, and harder meth­ods will yield greater re­wards.
