Murder, Death, Kill - 2
. Okay, here's the story. There's this scientist (Dr. Fluke Hawkins) that nobody really respects; no one except for his janitor (played by Kurt Hectic). Well, the good doctor and janitor duo leave earth to work in peace. While away from earth, Hawkins develops a 6-legged dog named Max (who also develops something, a nasty smoking habit). Also in development is a crime fighter suit, equipped with a parachute, a sniper mask, and armor. Guess what happens. That's right - evil aliens attack earth, and it's up to Kurt, Max, and Doc to save the world. [Enter the gamer, center stage].
The game plays like any other third-person action game. However, this is like having three games in one. Each character has things unique to himself. While playing as Kurt Hectic, you can glide using the parachute, kill using the chain gun, explode using items found in the game, and snipe using the mask (shouldn't he get a bad case of whiplash?). While being Dr. Fluke Hawkins, you can combine items to make things of destruction. Bet you didn't know a toaster could be dangerous. Max is a 6-legged, smoking dog with a jet pack - imagine the possibilities. The game is basically simple - run, jump, fly, shoot, murder, death, kill - 2. It's not an RPG and it's not a first person shooter - it's something in between.
I was not a big fan of the controls, but the game ran great. It was fast, smooth, and most importantly, fun. At first I thought it very cheesy, but as I played more, I really got in to it. It just kinda grows on you. Kill all the aliens and save earth - that's every janitor's dream. I really think the game handled with the ease and grace of a computer game - well almost.
