Time Crisis 4 Preview

Light gun games have been around for some time, and easily one of the most successful and popular franchises in the genre is Time Crisis. Well Namco Bandai Games isn't leaving its latest title in the arcade as it's headed exclusively to the PlayStation 3 this fall. And of course, you can't have a new Time Crisis on a new platform without a new GunCon to play it with...

One of the biggest technical features that long-time fans of the series will love to hear is that Time Crisis 4 will be compatible with any display type. Be it a hefty CRT, a flat-panel LCD or plasma set, a rear-projection display or even a projector, Time Crisis 4 will work thanks to its new set up. Rather than having the GunCon take a snapshot of the screen, the GunCon 3 setup utilizes two sensors that you place atop your display and the gun then reads them to know where it's pointing. The sensors are small squares, maybe an inch or two in length on each side, that simply need to be aligned at the top of the set but not necessarily at the corners. So those of you with 120" projection screens need not worry.

that looks pretty slick. Complete control of movement too is a nice little feature. I must say I do enjoy this series and I always liked the arcade versions better just for the fact of the big screen. However, I do have a nice sized TV for this version so I think I'll be ready for some home console action when this comes out ^^

Ew, fugly!

One would think that an on-rails shooter would look better than that.

what's wrong with that screen?

Plus judging by what they said in that preview this isn't an on the rails shooter for the most part.

It's blocky as hell, with low-res textures. They have boxes for limbs, for crying out loud! And that was just an example, but all screens in the gallery look like that. I mean, what is this?

I'd say the port was originally planned for the PS2, but they changed their minds in the last second.

The graphics are not impressive, but I'm glad it's on an HD system so I won't get all those fantastic jaggies.

you deserve a 'minus' for your comment :/. If you dont like it, dont say it.

"If you dont like it, dont say it."

What the hell was that supposed to mean? Should we only be allowed to speak if we like something? Grow up, dear.

Seems like a lot of extra hardware for the GunCon 3 system, but Time Crisis games are very fun so it's probably worth it.
