|One morning in 2198, the city of Arcadia was annihilated within the blink of an eye. An alien object fell from the once friendly skies and destroyed buildings, leaving the inhabitants either seriously wounded or dead. There were survivors, but the city faced even bigger problems: mutinous alien creatures spewed from the wreckage and infiltrated the newly "renovated" city. The government sends in the marines with only one goal: eradicate any and all alien resistance!|
Assume the role of Sgt. Reno J. Washington, the gruff heavy-weapons veteran, or Major Kelly Doyle, a young sniper, to infiltrate Arcadia's city streets, run through the jungles of Zeeva, and destroy the aliens' vessel and hive! However, keep in mind is that the aliens are going to come whether you move or not, so put the hurt on the menace any which way you can. Surrender is not an option!
Assault: Retribution supplies you with some of the best firepower modern technology can provide, as well as various customization options to ensure "better living through quick death disbursement." Washington utilizes a barrage of destructive weaponry such as the P-420 Multi-Phase Pulse Rifle and the aptly named Cutter; Doyle uses a variety of Homing Missiles, Beam Lasers, and the D-16 Magnetic Bolt Accelerator. There's also a plethora of pickups including weapon upgrades, health, ammunition recharges, smart bombs, extra lives, and shields. Save points within each level let you resume the killing when it is most convenient for you. And (rare as of 1999), there is a two-player cooperative mode in case you feel that one ultimate killing machine just isn't enough.
Assault: Retribution is a 3D platform shooting game that takes place across seven futuristic levels, includes two playable characters with alternate routes, analog control, and memory card support. You can't spell action, adrenaline or assault with out an "A," so go out and kick a few!
