Black, a first person shooter from the makers of the Burnout series remains to date one of the most satisfying shooters to grace the PS2 and Xbox. Even on hardware that by today’s standards is obsolete, developer Criterion pulled off some jaw dropping destruction and an insane amount of weapon detail. Now even though it hurts us deeply that Criterion are not working on a current sequel, it seems Codemasters has been working on a spiritual successor called Bodycount.
Let the bodies hit the floor
Equipped with a mouth-watering arsenal of weapons, grenades, mines and airstrikes players rip through cover and enemies as they leave no man standing. By performing skill kills, chaining kills and collecting intel dropped by downed enemies, players can unlock a series of upgrades and abilities, including an adrenaline shot, explosive bullets and radar. Every bullet and every body counts, with replayability extended by the scoring of a player’s skill in each level which can be compared against online leaderboards in the game’s Bodycount Mode.
While Bodycount hits stores across America this August, the game will be available across India for the Xbox360 and PS3 by the 2nd of September, 2011.
