Tornado Outbreak Preview (Xbox360)

Written by igcompany on Sunday, 13 June 2010 16:46.

Game Information

Konami has announced a new action game entitled Tornado Outbreak. The cartoon-style game casts the player as a swirling tornado and will be released for PLAYSTATION®3, Xbox 360 and Wii in October.

An all-action mix of collection and destruction elements, Tornado Outbreak drops one or two players into a combat zone, where they are charged with wreaking havoc within a series of fully interactive worlds. But all is not what it seems? Sinister forces have deceived you to believe that your destructive behavior will save an epic hero. In reality, you?re working for evil. Take control of a dynamic tornado as you tear through open environments, chewing up the landscape and spitting out everything in your path.

The more you destroy, the bigger you grow as you work against time based, collection and point challenges in the search for hidden elements and enemies from another world. Tornado Outbreak provides expansive sandbox type gameplay and real time destruction allowing gamers to destroy what they want, when they want, where they want!

Tornado Outbreak delivers humour-filled missions and varying objectives, ranging from blustery mischief at a local trailer park to gale force feats in the middle of sprawling cityscapes. Diverse action packed gameplay provides both casual and hardcore gamers the ability to tear through towns in beautifully stylized high definition action! 

Double the destructive power by playing co-operative multiplayer where two players drive through environments picking up and tossing everything in their way in an effort to do battle against the evil Omegaton. The items in a player?s path range from the usual rusted tractors and rustic farms, to the strange and unexpected as you tear your way through increasingly complex and crowded areas around the world. Through large open worlds, users can take control of how objects are damaged and destroyed with the active destruction game mechanic.

For added replayability, Tornado Outbreak offers multiple missions and the chance to destroy different objects within environments to maximize each level and earn extra points.

Hellboy - Science of Evil Preview (Xbox360)

Written by igcompany on Sunday, 13 June 2010 16:43.

Game Information

With one highly successful film already available and an eagerly anticipated second movie releasing alongside the game, it will be impossible to escape Hellboy this summer.

Boasting a storyline with input with input from Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy and Giullermo Del Toro, director of both Hellboy movies and retaining all of the visual elements and dark humour so vital to the success of the comic books, this game should appeal to all Hellboy fans. In another nod to the forthcoming film, the voice over work features all of the main cast members from the movie including Ron Perlman, Selma Blair and Doug Jones.

The Science of Evil, as you would expect, is a brawling action title that really shows you the brutal strength Hellboy possesses. His powers can rip apart the scenery and levels and use them as weapons against the enemy and this is often a necessity as wave upon wave of attackers descend on Hellboy. This is a classic action game with all of the modern looks and feelings you would expect from the power of the next generation consoles.

The game has a dark and moody look interspersed with elements of good humour and plenty of action and challenges to keep players entertained at all times as Hellboy trails the sadistic Hermann von Klempt and his attempts to unleash evil on the world.

Close combat action sequences are key to the player progressing in this title and contextual grappling commands enable users to string together elaborate combination attacks in addition to the scenery manipulation and brute strength attacks you?d expect from Hellboy himself.

Features
  • STORY OVERSEEN BY HELLBOY CREATOR MIKE MIGNOLA
  • FEATURES OTHER WELL KNOWN CHARACTERS FROM THE COMICS
  • LANDSCAPE AND SURROUNDINGS FORM PART OF HELLBOY?S ATTACKS
  • PLAY AS ABE SAPIEN AND LIZ SHERMAN IN CO-OP AND SPLITSCREEN MODES
  • FULL VOICE OVER WORK FROM THE MOVIE CAST

Game Information

Jigsaw has killed your partner and destroyed your life.  Now he has trapped you in an abandoned insane asylum that he alone controls.  If you can defeat his brutal traps and survive, you may just discover the truth behind what drives this twisted serial killer.

SAW is a third-person perspective, survival horror game based on the SAW film franchise, which has grossed more than $665M worldwide and sold more than 28 million DVDs.  The game features many of the deadly mechanical traps seen in the film, as well as terrifying new ones.  Players will pit their wits against Jigsaw as they navigate his world in an attempt to evade and escape his gruesome traps, while also struggling against his minions in brutal combat by using weapons found within the environment.

SAW, the video game, is based on a treatment from Zombie Studios and the creators of the SAW franchise, Leigh Whannell and James Wan.

The timeline for the game takes place between the movies: SAW and SAW II, giving the game its own story, yet fitting within the narratives of the movies.

The story centers on Detective David Tapp who awakens in a decrepit, abandoned asylum.  He has been captured by his longtime nemesis, Jigsaw.  Obsessed with catching this serial killer, Tapp's mission has consumed him and ruined his family, resulting in divorce, mental imbalance, and abandonment. Worse yet, this frantic hunt destroyed Tapp's career while he watched his long-time friend and partner get killed by one of Jigsaw's traps.  Now Jigsaw has the upper hand and has captured the detective. Tapp must play a deadly game - the likes of which he has been investigating for years - to escape, and in order to do so he must survive the lethal traps and puzzles that Jigsaw has put in place for him and others. But each victim has a dark connection to Tapp. Will Tapp save them? Can he survive his obsession to find the Jigsaw killer?

Features
  • Traps of Lethal Cunning - Jigsaw has laid out a gauntlet of torturous traps for a handful of innocents.  Only you stand between them and the most brutal death imaginable.  Think quickly and act! The clock is ticking.
  • Choices of conscience - The player is forced to make difficult moral choices.  Who lives and who dies in the game is determined by the player?s choices.
  • Mysteries Revealed - Unanswered questions from the films are finally laid to rest. Gamers will discover the origin of Jigsaw and why he devoted his life to games, while also finding out what happened to the characters from the first SAW movie.
  • An Ecology of Terror - The asylum in which Jigsaw has trapped you is abandoned, but it is far from empty.  It is a living world of horror populated by Jigsaw?s minions and the insane souls they torture? and they have no intention of letting you leave.
