E3 2008: Monster Madness: Grave Danger Impressions

Simplistic downloadable titles such as Rocketmen, Commando 3, and other arcade/arcade-inspired titles are quickly becoming more and more common. While Xbox 360 owners have been playing Monster Madness for a while now, the PlayStation 3 version of the game is on its way and was playable.

The game utilizes a top-down view, but with a slightly isometric tilt to allow the gamer to see what's up ahead. The action is very arcadey, so if you found enjoyment out of Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 recently, you should find yourself digging Monster Madness: Grave Danger as well.

The point of the game is eliminate hordes of zombies that come your way, as one of three characters. You can either shoot or engage in close-ranged melee combat, which makes for a slightly more diverse experience. You'll also be able to pick-up objects in the game and hurl them at your opponents for increased damage. Special moves are another asset of yours that'll come quite in handy when things start getting really hairy for you.

25 mini-games have been added to the game, as well. These mini-games are reflex based, as one mini-game had us timing jumps and ducking over a series of obstacles coming our way. The speed of the mini-game picked up, until we lost. On top of mini-games, unlockable costumes per character will be rewarded, as well.

Played the demo that is available on the PSN... The sort of comic book styling was interesting. While I didn't feel much from the game, I think it would be a decent multiplayer game.

It reminds of of that game "Hunter:The Reckoning" awhiles back. But in a more kiddie type of way. I liked it, I'm a fan of those kinds of games tho. The run and gun style if you will
