Rampage: Total Destruction is the next evolution in
the Rampage series. While the game retains the core
elements that made the Rampage series so popular -
giant monsters, massive destruction and a humorous theme -
new mechanics and play modes make Rampage: Total Destruction
a unique gaming experience. With dozens of new monsters
to collect and play, new levels of destruction, and an interactive
3D environment, Rampage: Total Destruction unleashes
the chaos like never before...
Total Destruction offers a fresh take on an arcade classic
complete with everyone's favourite monsters: George (ape),
Lizzie (Godzilla-like dragon), and Ralph (werewolf), along
with a variety of new monsters to collect and play. Virtually
everything in the environment can be damaged, broken, and
utterly destroyed with plenty of hilarious results. Aided
by power-ups, the Rampage: Total Destruction monsters
are capable of acquiring a number of upgrades throughout the
course of a single campaign.
remember (showing my age here) playing both the original Rampage
and Rampage World Tour arcade machines. So I was eagerly
anticipating playing Rampage: Total Destruction.
first I got all tingly and nostalgic as I took control of
George the ape and started smashing buildings to pieces. In
my childish memory, this is exactly as impressive as I remember
the arcade versions being. However, thanks to the fact that
both the original arcade versions are available to play on
the disc, I soon realised that those old games were not as
I remembered them.
the introduction of the old games are a great touch, I doubt
you'll play them more than once. The new game, on the other
hand is another kettle of fish altogether.
is the additional characters (there are over 20 to collect)
that keep this game fresh. To be honest, once you've bashed
one city, you've bashed them all. This game does get incredibly
repetitive very quickly. But, and this is what surprised me,
you won't get bored of it too quickly. And when you do, you'll
still keep coming back to it time and time again.
get to travel around the world to destroy various cities.
I say "travel around the world", but in reality
it's several USA locations, London and Hong Kong. In the one
player mode it's simply a case of smashing your way through
each level. For each section you are given a task to complete
(like eat 5 police officers, or collect 10 bananas) and if
you manage to achieve this you are rewarded with bonus points,
or a new special move. As you progress, you'll also unlock
other playable monsters that you can play at any time. So,
when you get bored of playing as one character, you can quickly
change to another beast before the next level starts. Also
touches like being thrown in the air if you step on a water
fountain, or accidentally stand on a roundabout in the kid's
park, help to add much to this classic game.
it's the multi-player mode where all the fun begins. There's
nothing like fighting over destroying a building to get your
blood boiling. The
fact that this retails at under £15 is another reason
why you really have no excuse for picking up a copy.
