'Dark Angel' (PS2) - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 17, 2002 @ 3:17 a.m. PST

James Cameron's Dark Angel is a 3rd person action adventure game, with emphasis on stealth and fighting, based on the hit TV series of the same name. Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Seattle, players take on the role of Max, a genetically-enhanced super-soldier, on a quest to reclaim her past by finding her sister and fellow genetically-altered escapees. We're taking our build for a spin, and here are some screens. Initial impression : Dark Angel would kick the shit out of Buffy if they ever met, so in short, good game!

As a child Max escapes from her military creators, Manticore, along with a handful of her "siblings", and makes a life for herself on the edgy streets of 21st-century Seattle. Haunted by dark memories of her victimization at the hands of Manticore personnel, Max is on a quest to reclaim her past and locate her missing "siblings". Max believes that by finding her "family" she can overcome the battle that rages inside her, as the soldier she has always been is confronted by the woman she wishes to become.

Play through multiple missions and objectives on each level, which will include side stories of lost siblings, destroying Manticore, and helping Logan Cale overturn corrupt government movements.
