CVG previews Time Crisis 4

Games have changed a hell of a lot in the last 10 years, but the Time Crisis series has steadfastly refused to grow up. While everyone else was jumping on the mature bandwagon, pumping out Emo music-backed introspective monologues about the state of the world, Time Crisis was content to deliver bubblegum action, packing some serious soft metal.

CVG loves Namco for this, and they love them even more since catching sight of Time Crisis 4. It would have been very easy for some suit with a sales chart to decide this latest gun game should feature a gritty plot, heroes with personality disorders and a game world caked in grime. What we're getting is more shiny office environments, blue-sky exterior shootouts an armada of stealth jets targeting the US and only you, a buddy and a pair of Guncon 3s can save the day. Business as usual.

Why this game does'nt get more exposure is beyond me.Seems more engaging than the normal FPS.But it's classified in the 'shoot-em-up' genre.What's the difference?

there are parts in the game where you are stuck in an area and enemies coming from two directions....must kill them all till time runs out. for example early in the game I was stuck in a corridor with enemies coming from front and back. I had to like point the gun to the side of the screen with a swift motion as if to direct someone to "go over there" when pointing a gun at that person. the screen would change. Clever....but like I said the game gets confused with what you want to do sometimes and thats how I ended up dieing :( this explanation is about the arcade game. as for the PS3 extra modes I dont know anything about.....I think you can like move around abit with the new gun because of the new control sticks. please dont quote me on that as I'm not entirely sure.

ahh! yes I remember playing this at the late arcade (its turned into a fruit machine only) great graphics, alot going on. However the arcade machine was getting confused when activating the "change screen" motion.

I wish other games adapt the guncon controller.
