Have you even gone back to a game you really liked, only to discover time has been cruel to your memories? That’s exactly what we do on this week’s Go Round of Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear To The Rescue for the Nintendo 64. 3D platformers we on the rise back then. Let’s just say they didn’t have all the bugs worked out yet.
The first Men In Black movie was pretty cool. The second one had its moments but I remember being disappointed with it. The third film released recently and I have yet to see it. I’ve heard good things however. Simply because a movie can’t release without a game tie-in, we get MIB: Alien Crisis. I know what you’re thinking. “Another movie tie-in? It’s going to be bad isn’t it?” Sadly the answer is yes.
What You Need To Know
Since I haven’t seen the third film, I’m not sure where this falls in the timeline. I guess it happens after MIB 3 or at least near the end of the movie. In Alien Crisis you play as archeologist-turned-art-thief, Peter Delacour. Short story shorter, Peter steals a book for a dude, turns out dude is an alien, alien dude tries to destroy everything, Peter has to stop him. The Men In Black temporally deputize Peter as Agent P in order to stop alien-dude-with-book. The majority of the game is a third-person, cover-based, on-rails shooter. Think House Of the Dead plus Gears Of War. Other gameplay types include vehicle flying and point-and-click investigation. The game claims Wii Zapper support (a phrase I hate with a passion) with options for three different control layouts. Also included are a few multiplayer modes which oddly are all about score competing and never ask you to shoot your fellow players. Read more…
It’s been a while since Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones teamed up to save the world from the threat of alien invasion. We won’t have to wait much longer though, as Men in Black III is set to hit theaters in 2012.
To go along with that movie Activision has announced that they’re working on a stand alone video game that will hit stores alongside the new film. According to a press release sent out by the company they will be utilizing the rich mythology of the MiB universe and a number of familiar faces will be returning.
No game play details, platforms or a final release date have been announced. I better get to flashy thing at least one person in this game.
