Hidden Invasion - Preview
|October 2001||Swing||TOKA/Conspiracy Ent.||1||$99.95|
When I spoke to Daniel at Acclaim last week he was pretty excited about Hidden Invasion. When I saw the screenshots I was wondering if this was the game he was talking about. It doesn't really look that hot. But Daniel is pretty up front. If a game is shit, he'll says so, even if it's from his own company. Obviously playing the game must be a lot more enjoyable then looking at the rather average screen shots. The game could be described as Zombie Revenge with a science fiction theme and plenty of exciting moments.
|Sorry.. these are the only screens.|
Hidden Invasion is a 3D adventure bursting with action in which you are the leader of a special forces taskforce who has to confront an eerie alien threat. You must uncover a conspiracy like no other, a conspiracy that has not been seen in the world... and try to keep a cool head doing it.
|Well, it looks violent enough.|
Stay cool and complete your mission.
After all there is more at stake here than just your life...
In doing this you will once again become familiar with a feeling you thought you had forgotten for a long time: Fear - cold, stark fear...
Firstly I want to point out that the only screenshots I could find were these pretty low quality ones, but imagine sharp graphics and you should get a pretty good indication of what to expect. The game also features interactive destructable environments, various weapons and a dynamic difficulty level that adapts to the development of the players. If you are struggling the game will ease off and vice versa.
|Actually this could be quite fun.|
Hidden Invasion is currently expected to be released here in Australia by Acclaim on September 20th, only a couple of weeks after the company stiched up a deal with Swing in Europe to release the titles here. While it won't compare with Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and the like, it should prove to be an enjoyable title at the least.
