Wild Metal Country is a video game developed by DMA Design in 1999 for Microsoft Windows and for the Dreamcast in 2000 as Wild Metal. Along with Grand Theft Auto and its sequel, Wild Metal Country was made available as a free download by Rockstar Games on their website in 2004.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Wild Metal Country is an action game designed for single player or multiplayer LAN play, where the player can choose different types of tanks and fights with other tanks on different planets.

Plot[edit]

The game takes place in three planets of a Theric system where machines have gone out of control. They drove out the human population and took over the planets. The humans have finally regained the strength to recover their planets. In single player, your mission is to destroy the enemy, and, more importantly, recover the stolen power cores. In multiplayer mode, all the power cores in one of the other planets have been recovered. The team of bounty hunters that recovered them are now fighting among themselves for the loot and the credit.

Reception[edit]

The Dreamcast port of Wild Metal received mixed reviews from critics. The PC version of Wild Metal Country fared much better from critics. The GameSpot review of the Dreamcast port concluded that "this game had plenty of potential, but it turned out to be a boring shooter so frustrating that it's hardly worth a rental".[2] GameSpy felt that "Without the Internet support, though, this is a weak effort all around".[3] Other reviewers, such as IGN, gave positive reviews.
