Nimbus Infinity Just Scrapes The Surface Of The Mecha Genre’s Potential

Platform: PC
Genre: Third-Person Mecha Action Game

If you need a fast-paced arcade game fix involving giant robots that dart around the playing field very, very fast, Nimbus Infinity might be your jam.

Nimbus Infinity puts you in the shoes of one Taiyo, a teenage delivery boy in the far future. One moment he’s delivering tofu for his mom on New Year’s Eve, the next he’s piloting a war mech and helping out in the fight against the central CFN government. In-between missions, you get to talk to the crew and the important cast members in visual novel format, like with the female scientist co-pilot and your adult mission handlers. As far as standard anime plots go involving giant robots, this one’s on-par and just acts as window dressing to the action.

The Need For Speed

At least the gameplay is handled just fine and dandy. You can customize your loadout and mecha colour before a fight, though it’ll be nice to have a training mode so I can test out my weapons before a fight. Usually, I have to try them out on the fly, though usually I just roll with it since the default settings are enough to get through 90% of the game. Part of the reason is due to the intuitive controls and how responsive it is.

Dashing across the giant playing field while firing mini-missiles or just waylaying foes with your assortment of lasers -while closing the gap with your obligatory melee sword- is really just fun and handled well here. You’re even given three different “fighting styles” to switch on the fly too: Offense, Defense, and Speed. These make a huge difference when you’re fighting or just trying to wait it out and play defensively against bigger and numerous foes. Action game veterans may want to bump up the difficulty though; the game does get easy on its default difficulty once you’re used to the controls and mecha combat stylings. The game is about 5 hours or so to go through, with an option to go through a gauntlet if you need to go beyond story mode; it’s not exactly the most replayable title out there.

I guess what I’m saying is that I’m really left wanting more out of Nimbus Infinity, which is a mecha game that really scratches that itch for players who yearn for the days of fast-paced combat like Konami’s Zone of The Enders series. For the low price of US$14.99, you could do worst and it’ll at least sate your jollies if for a few hours.

 

Final Score: 60/100
