in case you're guessing, Z is pronounced the british way:
"zed", and not "zee" as in the US. That's
why, to avoid problems, the sequel was called 'steel soldiers'
instead of Z2.
as for the original Z storyline, actually there isn't any
:) . Isn't it funny that the all time favorite of many (ahem..
me included) dismiss any kind of storyline? Makes me think
what is the fuzz about in these new games. Ok, that's what
I could pick right from the 'bible' (Z Expansion manual)
is a riotous race for supremacy between armies of space-faring
robots. Your one aim in life as the commander of your
forces is to conquer planets and totally wipe out enemy
forces. To do that you'll have to take charge of your
robot units and direct them in battle. The action is fast
and furious. Be prepared to make life and death decisions
on the spur of the moment. Remember, in Z, hesitate and
you've had it.
