As you progress through the various modes of play in Zoids: Battle Legends
, you will be able to unlock or go up against 80 zoids with a multitude of weapons and parts, which will make your zoid of choice exactly the kind of fighter youíre looking for. These zoids are everything from Liger Zero and his three forms (Panzer, Schneider and Jagar), the Berserk Fury, Lightning Saixes, Shadow Foxes, Command Wolves, Gun Snipers, Molgas and Red Horns. This is but a small sample of the Zoids you will encounter.
There are four modes of play in Zoids: Battle Legends: Zoids Battle, Vs Mode, Zoids Fist and Mission Mode. Zoids Battle is the tournament mode of this game. You and a partner (computer controlled) will go up against team after team. You choose to be one of several familiar characters including Bit, Leena, Van, and Fiona, as well as a few new characters. If you choose one of the characters from the original series (like Bit or Leena), then youíll face off against enemies in a similar pattern to the series. Here you will win money after each victory to either buy more Zoids or weapons and parts.
Mission Mode takes place during the events of the Zoids: Chaotic Century series. Here you choose to be either Republic or Imperial, and progress through many missions where you will go up against multiple enemies alone. You will defend a base, or scout ahead of the rest of the group to clear out a path. Instead of making money to buy zoids, you will earn the ability to use them because you prove yourself to the faction that you have joined.
Zoids Fist and Vs Mode are essentially the same thing. Both modes let you go head-to-head against either a second player or the computer. You will be able to use either the zoids provided, or load up a list from one of the other modes. The only real difference I could find was that Zoids Fists took place in small arenas, whereas Vs Mode was on the various terrain and landscapes that you find in the other modes.
