Heavy Metal Geomatrix Overview

Heavy Metal Geomatrix is a port of the NAOMI arcade game released by Capcom in 2001. It was one of Capcom’s many budget-priced release in the later days of the Dreamcast in the US.

HMG was an original concept developed by Kevin Eastman (of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame) and featured characters designed by artist Simon Bisley. The game features the Heavy Metal license and the design of it is influenced greatly by it.

The game is a third-person fighting game similar to the 1999 game Spawn: In the Demon’s Hand. Characters fight in various arenas with melee and range attacks. It is fairly fun but some will likely find the camera frustrating.

The game features a soundtrack full of Sanctuary Records artists Megadeth, Halford, Corrosion of Conformity, Dust to Dust, W.A.S.P., and Entombed; although fans might be disappointed in the track selection.
