Jobe Would "Love To Do A War Of The Monsters Remake"

Heeey, remember War of the Monsters on the PS2? It was a straight-up action game featuring certain legendary behemoths; it was somewhat flawed, but it represented a good chunk of mindless fun for a few hours.

Well, we tend to check Dylan Jobe's Twitter page from time to time, just because he has been responsible for some top-quality video games in the past. He was part of the Incognito team that made Warhawk and has since moved on to form his own studio, Lightbox Entertainment, and they're rumored to be working on a sequel to the latter title, called Starhawk. But according to one of his more recent Tweets, War of the Monsters was the first game he ever directed and produced and, quote on quote, he "would love to do a remake some day." Given the power of the current video game systems and Jobe's experience since, we'd like to think that a remake could be oodles of brain-stomping fun (I just trademarked that expression so don't you dare use it without permission). All we really need is a more polished exterior and a game that anyone can pick up play; in so doing, they'd leave a trail of destruction in their wake and end with a smile on their face. Really, it's all about the fun factor with a project like this, and we have no doubt that Jobe and Co. could deliver.

But in the meantime, we'd really like to locate information on that mystery Lightbox project. We all assume it's Starhawk but we'd love an official announcement and some baseline details...

Well Warhawk was/is amazingly addictive and fun
I still remember the first months of that game

I would wake up and that'd be the first thing on my mind! Warhawk!

But yes, never got to play this War of the Monsters game...

War of the Monsters was a great beat'em up. Anybody who enjoyed the Rampage series, or the King of the Monsters series would enjoy it. It's great tearing up the city, and your opponent at the same time :)

i would love to see starhawk come to life.
but this time include a SP mode and make it like fatal extria EX.
love that game and have spent countless hours playing it.
and i would love to see a sequel to full auto battelines.
i miss the good old days where we had plenty of games allowing us to drive around and blow the sh*t out of what ever we wanted.
now im forced to the wii for that.
*shudder*
i suddenly feel so dirty!

I remember seeing this game but never played it. There was some interest but I don't know why I never got it. Maybe I'd heard it was buggy. Being a big fan of Rampage and King of the Monsters series, if this did come out, I would most likely get the revision.
