About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines' (PS2/Xbox/PC) - Screens & Trailer

by Judy on Jan. 13, 2005 @ 7:34 a.m. PST

Breaking ranks from the current glut of WWII action titles, Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines is played from a refreshing third-person perspective and uses an eye-catching comic-book style that draws players into a rich and atmospheric world that is fraught with the dangers of enemy territory. Other innovations include a successful blend of playing styles, from all-guns-blazing action, to role-playing elements such as earning experience points to bolster Bill's health and strength, as well as collecting and manipulating all manner of useful items to help in his quest for freedom.

Breaking ranks from the current glut of WWII action titles, Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines is played from a refreshing third-person perspective and uses an eye-catching comic-book style that draws players into a rich and atmospheric world that is fraught with the dangers of enemy territory. Other innovations include a successful blend of playing styles, from all-guns-blazing action, to role-playing elements such as earning experience points to bolster Bill's health and strength, as well as collecting and manipulating all manner of useful items to help in his quest for freedom.

The action takes place across nine vast and beautifully realised levels. As well as being on the lookout for German forces, players need to learn how to adapt to the often-hostile environment. Extreme climate conditions can result in Bill catching cold and even hypothermia, while never allowing him time to rest will cause fatigue and exhaustion.

Players must also use stealth and resourcefulness to stay alive while Bill's nemesis, notorious Luftwaffe pilot Captain Killinger, mercilessly hunts him down across the harsh wintry environments of occupied central Europe.

Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines is being developed by Kuju and will be published by Oxygen Interactive in May 2005 for PS2, Xbox and PC price £29.99, Dreamcatcher will publish it in North America, although no release date has been announced yet.
