Rise of Nightmares Coming to Kinect

by admin

For those sick of dancing like buffoons or fake bowling, the game Rise of Nightmares looks like it will finally let you get some proper horror mileage out of the Xbox Kinect.

First revealed back at the Tokyo Game Show, little was known about the title until the ESRB ratings managed to sneak out onto the internet. While its Splatterhouse-style plotline seems about as cliché as they come (you have to rescue your wife from a mad scientist), the content descriptors seem delightfully gruesome.

“Players use brass knuckles, knives, hatchets, and chainsaws to kill zombie-like creatures and disfigured monsters inside a mansion environment. Combat is highlighted by exaggerated sprays of blood, and damage often results in dismemberment or decapitation—stray body parts sometimes litter the ground.

Some sequences and cutscenes depict more intense acts of violence: a man screams loudly as spikes impale his body; a restrained character’s hand is chopped off before he is killed; a character (cut in half) crawls away in a pool of blood; a soldier is ripped apart by a monster, causing blood to stain the screen.

Sounds AWESOME to me!
