And while we're at it, here are a few sound bites right from the developers on hot topics concerning Time Crisis: Razing Storm:
On supported peripherals
"Yes, we are supporting the classic G-con 3, so players can enjoy the game with G-con 3 and/or play with a friend simultaneously, with one person using the Move controller and the other the G-con 3."
On fully destructible environments
"In classical gun games, the player's accuracy in hitting the enemy and not accidentally striking other background areas, distinguished a good player from a bad player.
"In TIME CRISIS: RAZING STORM, the number of bullets the player is able to spray on the screen while destroying the environment, and how quickly the player wipes out the enemies leads to higher scores.
In classical gun games the player kept their fingers off the trigger while searching for enemies, but in CRISIS: RAZING STORM, the player continuously holds down the trigger, so the level of environment destroyed actually results in a higher score. Consequently, the tempo is extremely fast, and we have a game in which players can fully enjoy wiping out enemies and destroying everything in sight."
On Online Features
"Players earn experience points when competing online and when levelling up, and can also gain skills (up to 47) providing an advantage in online battles. Players can equip three of the skills at once to battle online.
"By obtaining powerful weapon upgrades that become available on maps in 'Arcade Mode' players can make significant turnarounds in the course of battle."
That's it for now. Hope you'll enjoy the game and see you online for a round of trigger-happy multiplayer action!
