New screens of Time Crisis: Razing Storm look familiar

Namco Bandai has released some new images of its upcoming shooter, Time Crisis: Razing Storm for PlayStation 3, and well… yeah. It looks like a Time Crisis game, am I right?

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, if that’s what you’re into. Time Crisis: Razing Storm, by all accounts, looks like it’ll continue the Time Crisis tradition of pointing at and shooting the hell out of everything that moves. It’s a port of the 2009 arcade title, Razing Storm, and makes use of either the upcoming Move controller or the Namco Guncon 3.

At an event in NYC recently, I had a chance to watch someone play the game using Move. I didn’t really feel compelled to grab the motion controller and and point at the screen to go “pew pew.” In fact, I got the impression that the folks playing it were zoning out, simply going through the motions as they took down giant robots and enemy soldiers.

There’s something about holding the gun peripheral that adds a whole new dimension to these type of games; I’m not sure playing with Move is the way to go. But who know, maybe in the future we will be taking down giant enemy robots with television remote control-style weapons.
