'The Kore Gang' (Xbox) - Features & Screens

by Rainier on March 16, 2003 @ 10:10 p.m. PST

The Kore Gang is a Wii exclusive action platformer that that delivers an entertaining & humorous story with one of the most spaced out visual styles ever seen on the Wii.

With its explosion of colors, bizarre characters and scenarios that resemble a trip to a crackpot planet in some far away cosmic galaxy, this title promises original fun and a whole lot of atmosphere. Central to the game is the wonderfully freaky Kore Suit, a round metal suit that immeasurably multiplies the wearer's abilities beyond imagination. Wacked-out gang members Pixie, Madboy and the dog Rex share the suit and embark upon breathtaking adventures. The Kore Gang is the first title ever to work with personality views such as Rex's "smell view." The suit morphs according to the personality of the wearer, creating a new kind of non-linear gameplay, where the right pilot has to be used for the right task.

Practicing her climbing skills, Pixie falls and suddenly lands in an underground laboratory full of weird equipment. It's here that she makes a stunning discovery: the incredible Core-Suit, a metal suit that adapts to its wearer. Equipping herself, Pixie sets off to find a way out. Shortly after, Pixie meets her future comrades: Madboy and the dog, Rex. The alien Corelings have captured Dr. Samuelson, the Core-Suit's inventor. Some time ago, the Doctor discove-red a probe named CORE, and used its technology to create the Core-Suit. The trio must save him -and use the Core-Suit to make the most of their individual skills: Pixie can use it to climb better than anyone else, Madboy can really pack a punch, and Rex's excellent hearing and sense of smell turn him into a walking radar station.
It's up to you to decide which character to use in any given situation, but remember that not all methods will lead to success. Cleverness and skill are required to complete the challenge. Make the most of it!
