{tab=Story} Many years have passed since the world war inflicted catastrophic damage on the human race, leaving only a few survivors. In their new community "Cocoon," life has been threatened by a black material called Erosion, creating a post-apocalyptic environment. Surviving humans recruit a militia to conquer the Erosion and set out to take down the evil, "Living Tower".

Arriving at the scene is the stalwart warrior Syd, whose only intentions are to destroy the Tower. He meets the beautiful and mysterious Filena as they both ascend to the top in their search for answers. The erosion of the Tower intensifies as the players climb up through the moving landform. Later in the game it is revealed how Syd got his scar on the middle of his forehead. {tab=Review} When i first saw this game, i thought it is a "Gears of War" clone. This could not be farther than the truth. I am sorry that i thought this. Theory may have taken some points from Gears but did it all wrong. The best i can do is say this is a rental.

I find the controls to be somewhat slugish. I think it could have been better mapped out. I hate running. You need to press X and use L3 stick to run. It is simply a pain. It would have been so much better if all you had to do was press L3 down to run. This is one of the control issues i faced.

Cutscenes are decent but it appears that they are graphics that showcase the console's power from years ago, not the latest graphical power. Gameplay graphics seem as if you are playing a PS2 game instead of a PS3 game, simple as that.

One would assume that the game designers forgot the basic requirements that any game should have. It seems that they forgot that people need maps, big or small, to allow them to navigate the terrain. In addition, i do not know how important this is to people but, the game also is missing cross hairs. Yes, you can zoom in and use the gun sights, but most shooters have it as a default.

Your so called "allies" dont seem to contribute to killing your enemies. They are there to make you not feel alone and all. However, i think its better to be completely alone instead of relying on these useless characters.

Sadly this game does more bad than good. Like i said above, the best i can do is say this is a rental. At worst, do not come near it even with a 5 foot stick.

3/10 {tab=Video} {/tabs}
