Grand Theft Auto with robots? That would seem to be the most apt description
upon one's first impression of Scrapland, the latest action game from designer
American McGee and publisher Enlight Software. Featuring a seemingly open-ended
gameplay structure, a noirish murder mystery, a goofy sense of humor, and a
huge city to explore, Scrapland would seem to have all the makings of a
futuristic adventure of epic proportions. Unfortunately, the initial vibe the
game puts forth doesn't quite pan out throughout its entire experience. Overly
repetitive gameplay and mission designs knock a lot of the wind from
Scrapland's sails as the game progresses, and the story could have been fleshed
out in a more enjoyable fashion. Scrapland is still pretty good overall, but
there's definitely a level of potential here that just doesn't ever quite get
The story opens up with D-Tritus entering Chimera, an all-robot asteroid, and
looking for work. All the good jobs are taken, though, and he has to settle for
being a lowly journalist. He quickly unearths a murder mystery that will have
him risking life and limb on his way to a heroic finish.
