Kick-Ass for PS3 is Available on PSN in Europe This Week
Last week Kick-Ass for PS3 hit the North American PlayStation Store, and today WHA Entertainment's CEO/Founder Howard Horowitz has announced it will also be available on the European PSN Store this week.
To quote: This is WHA Entertainment, the publisher for Kick-Ass the video game, available Wednesday 5th May. The story line direction we took for the transition from movie and comic to the Sony PSN game will have fans of the IP excited about playing the game.
How come nobody's ever tried to be a superhero? Because It Hurts.
The game lets you pick your superhero to play, Kick-Ass, Big Daddy and Hit Girl. Each has its own unique weapons, fighting and style of game play. Even in 2 player local co-op mode, you're able to select any of these great superhero's. Strap on, and we on our way into the street level of New York City.
Were sure to get an asskicking here, and Kick-Ass is not any different from us. See him get his ass kicked in front of the Donut shop. The story line, game levels and locations work as close to the movie as what was possible. Of course there was one superhero we didn't want to get rid of.
As we're moving from level to level, we're fighting mini-bosses, environment obstacles, barrels that blow up. We have the big action packed fight in "Trey Fernandez "apartment.
Additional game levels include the burning warehouse, the junkyard as you avoid cars dropping on your head and Frank D'Amico's Penthouse. Other missions help move the story line and game play along as you pick up mana, and perfect your fighting skills.
In the penthouse level, one of the cool game features is the use of the "Jet Pack". Blast your way from outside the penthouse apartment to inside D'Amico's lair. This final mission ratchets up the action to an entirely new dimension, where we can pilot the already-legendary jet pack from the movie's climactic final battle scene.
Cut loose with twin Gatling guns, cutting down enemies in a barrage of hot lead and shattered glass - but don't forget to keep moving, or you'll be blown out of the sky in a hail of return fire and bazooka shells!
Red Mist even drops in for a beat down.
The game includes cool dialogue, great music and action sequences that culminate in a great adrenaline fill for all superheros.
One of the great Bonuses in the game is to find all 8 comic book covers placed throughout the missions. When you achieve that, you're able to unlock the entire 1st original issue of the comic book. It's great to be able to read this issue from your couch as your watching the pages on your 36" T.V.
