Even with some stiff competition from mainstream 3D shooters, Origin’s follow-up to No Remorse – Crusader: No Regret – gives new meaning to the old adage “a moving target is hard one to hit”, by completely sidestepping the first-person barrage with its isometric perspective and story-driven violence.
Snap59_1Set in a near future where an evil economic consortium controls the lives and day-to-day activities of the world’s population, Crusader 2 is the story of a lone, unnamed silencer – a defector from a select group of the consortium’s highly trained killers – as he tries to put an end to the stranglehold on the populace and escape to freedom. Crusader 2’s story picks up shortly after the apparent victory of the first game, with the silencer found adrift and unconscious in a lifepod just. He is picked up by what turns out to be a consortium ship. A predictable bloodbath ensues.
