    REVIEW

    Another addition to Hide's army of reptiles, here's Popo, the giant crocodile.
    Bet Steve Irwin didn't see this thing coming.

    The Good
    Another Gen Mo' Kai felt a bit nostalgic, and went for the big teeth and sharp claws look. On top of this, he ate something that didn't agree with him, and has a rather Godzilla-esque attack. He is able to belch fireballs (each with the power of a Phoenix bomb) and can cause major harm to anyone caught in the blast. Better turn friendly fire off while he's on the prowl. And like Tyrant, his armour systems are based on KouRyuu, and with the added benefit of camo.
    Along with his booster and various shields, he's well defended.

    Again, the TC's are simple and effective, with the shields, their generators, and Popo's targeting headset changing colour for each of the 4 teams.

    The Bad

    As with Tyrant, the shields may not display on some video cards, but there's something else. Popo needs 201 life to launch his projectile, meaning it takes 200 health away per shot. The max is 199. Hide has remedied this with a mutator of his own which allows you to fiddle with the life and turns the Redeemer into a giant pilotable nuclear medkit, all without interfering with Species Statistics. Personally I think this should have been taken care of beforehand, eg. having only a -30 cost per shot, using Adrenaline, or no cost at all. Anyway, at the bottom of this review will be the mut in question, less than 2Kb. Try turning it up to 1000 health and playing Instagib. :D

    The Bottom Line:

    Another brilliant combination of pre-history and futuristic technologies.

    Nice...

    Anyway, the head ain't my favorite, but the rest sure rocks all the way.
    His mutator is a great one. When there's a redeemer in town, there's no way to lose :D
    Although, you better don't use it when you already have the official ''Vampire'' mutator.
    Then you'll blow yourself in pieces. I discovered that last time.
    This model sure rock, like all the other creations of Hide.
    9/10. Great jobby!!
