Rocking jaws in Icon takes more than a pair of hurtin' bombs--the real pain belongs to the beat. "The music driving the environment is not just a visual effect," says Executive Producer Kudo Tsunoda. "It's a core element of our gameplay." Each level houses a slew of dangerous booby traps that are triggered by the tempo of the tunes, so throwing punches is only half the ass-kicking. "Every environment plays differently depending on what music is playing while you are fighting," says Tsunoda. "Since the music is different, and since the environmental hazards are triggered by the music, the rhythm and beat of each environment changes when the music changes." You can even upload your own songs, in case you ever wanted to bash heads to Barbra Streisand or Britney Spears--your pick.
