It's 5 years after the formation of the Worldwide Federation. Although
war has been averted, terrorist cells around the world threaten the
stability of the federation. To combat this menace, the Federation has
created a bi-pedal armored tank known as the Metal Head. You are a
Metal Head pilot, and you have to use all the weapons at your disposal
to take out the terrorists.
Metal Head is a bit of a variation
on the usual giant robot combat game. The game's mission areas bear
more resemblance to a first-person shooter than a simulation. The
graphics are all rendered in texture mapped polygons, which is unusual
for a 32X game.
