Okay, I know paisley is back. And if paisley can come back, then so can Rampage. What makes this game compelling isn't that it comes packed with every mode known to man, all the bells and whistles. Consider this as "in the tradition" but better. If the nightmare of watching monsters tear down cities was memorable in the eighties, you'll love seeing it all in 3D glory. Cars and helicopters explode, buildings crumble gradually before falling down around your ears, and SWAT vans discharge teams of sharpshooters hoping to bag a big, bad, monster. All the visual pizzazz is married to some great, over-the-top sound effects. Grab the wrong item to eat as you plunder a building, and your monster might end up with a mouth full of flames, or a nasty electric shock. Even a busted pipe can prove calamitous and send you tumbling down to street level with a gush of water. The music is driving rock, which fits the mood, but I would have liked more variety or name brand tunes. In game chatter is great, including some awesome comments from the people as you eat them, or the puny cops chasing you around on the ground.
