If you like your women to be exciting then the fact that Malice is a hammer-wielding, pig-tailed demi-goddess, with a mission to destroy an enormous Dog deity, will certainly keep you interested. Having been deposed from her rightful place in the heavens, Malice must recover her powers through her adventures until she's ready to kick canine butt in a final cataclysmic showdown.
Lastly, but not least, Malice is complete eye-candy for even the most hardened console owners. And that's just the good guys like The Metal Guardian, The Witch and Malice's buddy Death. Players will find themselves even drawn to the 'dark side' in admiration of the Dog God's beautifully rendered menagerie of lackeys.
Add to the mix the eight different powers Malice can earn during the adventure, 15 unique themes for the levels, seven different Dog God bosses to overcome and four different incarnations of Malice herself, and this is all adds up to one of the most playable console experiences of the year.
Malice is being developed by Argonaut Games and will be published by Evolved Games in March 2004 for PS2 and Xbox.
