Forgotten Games- Zone of The Enders:The First of Mars

by

I am a Zone Of The Enders fan-Let me start off with that. That said being a Zone of The Enders fan is nothing but endless suffereing as series creator, Hideo Kojima constantly fawns over Metal Gear his brainchild and most likely the series that has most lined his wallet with Yen. I can’t sit here and criticize the dude for only doing what he does best which is continuing to make a series of games based on one of the most confusing plots in entertainment history. But I digress- While Many fans of Z.O.E  1 & 2 are crossing their fingers for a third entry in the series I am pressed to point out that there technically IS a third Zone Of The Enders game.

Zone Of The Enders-The First of Mars for the Gameboy Advance back in 2002 was pretty different compared to it’s brothers on the Playstation 2. FoM took a page from turn based games like “Super Robot Wars and Fire Emblem” instead of going the fast past route  of the previous games.

I think that Mars acts as a side story the events of the first two games but I’m not entirely sure I do know that the protagonist is a young boy who comes in contact with an “Orbital Frame” and..I’m sure you can guess where it goes from there. First of Mars follows the typical tropes such as the main character coming into possession of a powerful robot and using it to combat evil. It’s a game that’s worth a try especially if turn based strategy and mechs are your thing. I’ll attach a video along with this post and maybe that will give you, the reader, a better of the forgotten 3rd Zone Of The Enders game.
