Developer: PlayStation CAMP, Crispy's
Platform: PlayStation 3
Genre: Survival Action
Release: Jun 7, 2012
The game is mission based, you must play the role of different animals like Pomeranian dog and Throughbred horse, trying to survive in Tokyo city after mankind's disappearance, while avoid attacks from stronger animals.
Looks cool. Like a modern less wacky version of Cubivore.
Seems to follow the HD generation symptom of budget game ---> budget quality. I know there's (a few) good downloadable games out there, but this doesn't look like one of them.
I'll reserve my complete judgment until the title is released, but for now I don't have any high hopes. What little is shown of the combat system (why show so little?), especially in its hit boxes, looks extremely primitive for a brawler, even with the variety of animals you can control. Now maybe things may get interesting with multiple enemies, but it only shows one-on-one combat, which doesn't look like it can amount to much. Other than that, the actual footage of the game, as far as I had watched, only showed a single one-hit-kill attack. Now that may be the start of the game, but it's hard to see any potential in it at all.
And the doggie-on-doggie doggy-style clip? Am I the only one that saw that?
Yeah, most of the impressions of the Japanese version said that it was just "ok" and that you hit a wall late in the game that requires you to grind in order to get an upgraded animal to get past. Fortunately, the U.S. release is only a $20 download, so I think it's worth it to show support for crazy stuff like this.
