- Yesterday, our European brethren across the pond received a nice gift in the form of a surprise demo on the European PlayStation Network Store. The game? Sega published and Bizarre Creations developed third person shooter known as The Club. I downloaded the 1.7 GB monster of a demo and played around with it for an hour or so. Here are some of my impressions.
The Club's premise is rather simple; you are one of eight characters from across the globe, who has to kill his way through various events and locales. I am sure the premise has some resemblance to a movie or another.
Each character's statistics, strength, stamina and speed, differ from one another offering players enough combinations to suit their play styles. Unfortunately, I cannot tell if these stats make a significant difference or not since the demo only offers one character, Dragov, the tough Russian who apparently lacks in the speed department. If you are seeing glimpses of Street Fighter's Zangief, you are not mistaken; even the character select screen resembles Capcom's 2-D fighter.
Once Dragov was selected, an event selection screen appears with two playable events, "Time Attack" and "Target Score". Project Gotham Racing event similarities are not completely off base here. Time Attack has the player running laps...
