Inspired by the Takara® range of action figures, Cy Girls is a breath-taking tale of information terrorism, computer hacking and martial arts. Starring Cy Girls agents Ice and Aska, the game spans two DVDs charting the pairs' missions, as the player is drawn into a deadly mission of espionage and adventure. Uniquely, the two DVDs are linked by a common story and, as the pair travel the globe – and beyond – in separate missions to track down and eliminate a computer wizard out to hold the world to ransom, recognisable locations are seen from different views as both Ice and Aska infiltrate the same strongholds.
With missions taking in South America, the Far East and eventually taking the girls into a surreal virtual world, Cy Girls delivers a mix of game styles as the pair's skills are tested in a series of conflict scenarios. Viewed in the third-person, a camera trails the girls as the player guides their selected heroine through a series of enemy encampments.
Each girl specialises in a particular form of combat, with Ice the master of firearms and projectile weapons, while Aska is a master Ninja and is thus trained for close weapon or hand-to-hand combat and is more athletic in her approach. This is perfectly demonstrated via the game's unique eight-directional control system which allows Aska to run along walls, while both characters can perform crouching attacks and roll and loose off weapons in one fluid movement.
Both girls are also adept hackers and at key points in the game can enter a virtual world in order to locate clues, download new abilities or take on their adversaries within computer-generated battlefields where the normal rules of reality can be bent...
