Weaponised weath er

XBox: The Official Magazine - - REVIEW -

The game’s bad­die, Os­car Espinosa, has de­vised ways of har­ness­ing light­ning, tor­na­does and sand­storms, in or­der to keep con­trol of the moun­tain­ous, low-ly­ing and desert re­gions of So­lis – and he plans to em­ploy them of­fen­sively else­where via his Project Il­lapa mega-weapon. But pro­tag­o­nists Mira and Rico pro­gres­sively ac­quire that tech­nol­ogy, en­abling you to wield them at cer­tain ar­eas of the map. Light­ning is dead handy when you have a load of en­emy chop­pers con­verg­ing on you, for ex­am­ple – al­though Rico also gets hit. And even Rico is li­able to per­ish if he wing­suits into a tor­nado, al­though Avalanche Stu­dios’ re­al­is­ti­cally mod­elled wind-physics are a marvel which you

must check out.
