In a way, its a little bit like Powerstone with the various items and the multi-directional running/walking. Some of the robots play very differently, including one robot which cannot jump at all. Lots of good music and a really detailed story mode too.
I played this game to death back around 2002.
I wouldn't say it feels like Powerstone per se. Movement in 3D space is no where near as intuitive or free form as PS. And items in TR simply build stats (higher defense, damage boost, etc.). It really does feel and play much like the ol' 2D fighter Cyberbots, which TR is essentially a spiritual sequel of. Even Jin Satome from Cyberbots is a guest character in this game which is pretty darn cool. The game looks a bit dated visually as its a port of a ZN-2 arcade title. Though somehow it makes up this shortcoming with some cool/wacky mecha designs and anime influenced art style. It is very charming and ultimately quite fun to play experience.
