|From the makers of Giants:Citizen Kabuto comes another good-looking
solid shooter with humor thrown in. You play the leader of a four-member
group of thieves that also includes a Scottish moleman named Jonesy,
a British robot named Q, and a stinky, little blind mystic named Rexus.
They are on a quest to steal the all-powerful Book of Rule from an evil
king. There are varied missions where you have a jetpack, and some stationary
turrets, and you can order your teammates in some missions. There are
various weapons including a very handy machine gun, and a crazy land
shark launcher, which causes a shark to "swim" under the ground's surface
before attacking enemy soldiers from below. There are some weird secondary
weapons too like a portable black hole, a traitor bomb (which makes
enemies attack each other) and a weapon that lets you turn the entire
world upside down for a few seconds, causing enemies to fall into the
sky while you hang on to a corkscrew that's been drilled into the earth.
There are hundreds of enemies in the more than 20 levels which can get
tiresome but mostly the fun story and decent graphics make this a winner.
