On the Xbox 360 the twin-stick shooter revolution certainly went a little crazy and anyone would think just about every idea had been tried and tested.
So with Project Root lined up for release at the end of the month, We’ve had our greasy mits around a pretty impressive Preview build.
Firstly the official game description and then make sure you feast your eyes on our exclusive first play.
“Lighting a brighter future, energy is the root of all advanced global development.”So states the motto of the Prometheus Corporation, the world leader in energy research,production and distribution. With our forward-thinking, charismatic president Demetrio Wattsdelivering cheaper energy to cities throughout the world, the Prometheus Corporationcontinues to balance sophisticated research with environmental conservation to light abrighter future for humanki—What a giant load of horse@#%*.Oh, there’s no denying that Prometheus Corp. is the world’s leading energy provider – but atthe cost of permanent environmental damage, corrupt political agendas, and thousands ofhuman lives. With his beguiling, duplicitous smile, Demetrio Watts assures all citizens low-cost,efficient energy year-round. And yet behind the scenes and away from the public spotlight, hehides the dangerous secret plans Prometheus has been formulating for a while now. Preciousfew of us have realized this –I know personally as Prometheus forced my family and hundredsof others out of our community with their ruthless expansion plans.But we’re far from dead – we have been training in the shadows, gathering our resources, andsharpening our skills. It has taken time, but we are finally at a point where we can launch aneffective strike against Prometheus. We won’t rest until we have pulled the wool off from theworld’s eyes and reveal the true intentions of Demetrio and his company…or until we’re dead.Fast, direct action is needed and with our advanced F-72 Zonda aircraft, I – Lance Rockport –and others like me will personally strike at the root of this evil.We are Arcturus. We are ready. We are coming.
