Two months ago we brought you info on Midway's In Cold Blood, a Resident Evi/Metal Gear Solid hybrid developed by Revolution Software set in post-Cold War Russia. As British agent John Cord, you must revisit the events that lead up to your capture and uncover an evil scheme of world domination (see July's issue for more story details). We received a playable version this month and things are coming along nicely. The cinematic presentation is done very well--CG cutscenes keep the story moving, and all of In Cold Blood's dialogue is done solely in voice (with competent voice acting, thankfully). There are a few problems that will hopefully be worked out before the release date hits. The most serious of which is the character control, as navigating Mr. Cord is a frustrating task not made any easier by the fixed camera angles and press-up-to-move-forward control scheme. There might not be enough time to fix these problems, but fans of the genre might want to keep their eye on it this fall.

Game Reviews

Take the best espionage and stealthy aspects of Metal Gear Solid, throw in the highly detailed static backgrounds of Resident Evil, and you'll get a rough idea of how this game from Revolution Software looks and feels. Of course, there's a lot more to it than that. In fact, the developer wants the game to be as engaging as some of the best films. In Cold Blood starts with the main character, British Agent John Cord, being tortured. To make matters worse, he has no idea how he got there, or why he's being tortured. As the story unfolds, you find out Cord was originally sent to Russia to gather information on the disappearance of a CIA agent, who was in turn sent in to investigate a secret technology. The story revolves around this technology, and how a Hitler-like dictator plans on using it in his quest to take over the free world. Like some movies, 90 percent of the story is told in flashbacks, and gets wrapped up in the last couple of levels. No publisher or release date has been decided upon yet.
