Robotica | NEW Reviewing Every U.S. Sega Saturn Game | Episode 10 of 246

Time to revolt against cyber nation in the Saturn’s first Doom clone, set in the deep future when robots have taken over society. Will this revolutionize the way consumers see Saturn, or will it leave the machine in the dark hallways of its rocky launch?

This is the reboot for Reviewing Every U.S. Saturn Game. Any video in this series with the word NEW in the title is current and up to date.

Welcome to the series where I review every single Sega Saturn game released in North America by order of release date. I made a spreadsheet with all the games has as American releases, listing them off by order of release date, including sources. All the games are narrowed down to the month they came out in the U.S.

  • I always enjoyed the Mech/Akira kind of vibe from this game. I could never beat it, but the atmosphere always got me coming back. Absolutely love your videos, man. You need WAY more views! 😀

  • The great thing about Robotica is that it really is your mech against the steely-cold embrace of the base. I mean, I'm not saying this is survival horror by any means, but you get up to floor 15 or 20, the lights are out and you're low on ammo…it's you vs the robots, and that's it. Though the framerate is low, I never felt like it was limiting the game. You're a big, chunky mech, it just felt like the right speed. The graphics, at the time, were impressive. The depth in the walls and stuff hanging from the ceilings were just jaw dropping back then. I love the inspirational music that kicks off when you find the keys, especially in the first few floors…

  • Despite the obvious flaws, this game always had me coming back to it over and over again… won it over and over again too 😉

  • I love your videos and hope you'll keep making more. Ever thought about doing the Game Gear, Genesis, or Dreamcast?

  • Found you by total random luck, sense I'm looking into buying a Saturn I'll call it 'fate' more than luck. Love your presntation and the fact you don't just parrot info – this seems genuinely like your own take.
    Personally, I love these kinda 'so close' Doom clones – probably gonna pick this up. Earned a sub man, keep it up.

  • Loving these reviews, and thanks so much for not just parroting what most other reviews say about Robotica and actually formulating an educated opinion on the game. I've always been a big fan of this – yes, it can drag, but as a very early release for the 32-bit era, I think it's quite stylish and ambitious with the randomly generated 3D worlds. The ambient soundtrack is ahead of its time and really holds up well today, and while I usually lose interest after an hour or so of playthrough, it's a game I return to with regularity just for the rush of blasting away with the vulcan and creeping through those dark corridors with those Eno-like beats reverberating through the walls. Great to see another fan of the game, it definitely gets short shrift.

  • I picked this game up back in the day when it was marked down to budget pricing. I didn't mind it and actually made it all the way through. I think it looks and plays pretty well for the time, but I will admit it can get super repetitive and can be hard to stomach it all in one sitting (shame there's no password option at least). If I paid full price for it I'm sure I would have been disappointed, but for the few bucks you can pay for it these days it's not too bad.

  • There's a store 12 miles from my house that gets all kinds of overstock that failed to sell at retail. One day in the early 2000's they got a CIB copy of Robotica, among other ho-hum Sega Saturn games. I didn't buy it because it wasn't Guardian Heroes, Dragon Force, or Shining Force III. But I was (and still kinda am) obsessed with Sega Saturn and was really curious what Robotica was like, since I'd see it on the shelf every time I went there. I feel like your video has given me closure on that question.

  • “No one ever called Doom a Wolfenstein clone, but whatever.” Thank you! Yes, Doom was awesome but it’s nice to finally hear someone else point this out.

  • PANDAMONIUM. PANDAMONIUM. I love this series so much, and the intro is always so hype. I absolutely love how informative all of your videos are, not just about the game, but about the history. Please don't stop what you're doing

  • I sold this game because it's a waste of space and just wanted to get rid of it. The music has some nice parts though but the whole thing is just repetitive and boring.
