Disaster: Day Of Crisis Gameplay, A Whole New Level Of Unappealing

September 13, 2008

Note: The following post is influenced by the embedded gameplay footage. I am being judgemental, and could be totally wrong about the game.

Disaster: Day of Crisis will be coming out soon in Japan and Europe, and judging by the released gameplay footage, maybe we should all lower our expectations. What was predicted to be an original, hardcore, ‘M’ rated, Nintendo published title, has apparently turned out to be a game with waggle and PlayStation 1 capable graphics. This is what we’ve been waiting so diligently for? Feel free to prove me wrong Monolith, but so far, Disaster: Day of Crisis has reached a new level of unappealing.

Disaster: Day Of Crisis Japanese Commercials

September 11, 2008

After so much controversy, Disaster: Day of Crisis has abruptly emerged from the darkness, leaving many, myself included, baffled. What was once a game thought to be cancelled now has a Japan release at the end of the month. It started with an Australian rating and spiralled into so much more. Hardly any info on the game’s specific details have been announced, yet it will be out in less than a month. These Japanese TV spots have been aired, and although it will be hitting retail stores soon the game seems a tad unpolished. Has disaster been averted, or will this be false hope?

Disaster: Day of Crisis Lives

September 3, 2008

For a long time, no one has known what to think about Disaster: Day of Crisis. No one was sure if the game was dead, if it was still in the works, or what have you. Recently, the game was rated by the Australian Classification Board, which raised everyone’s hopes for the game. Then, European Nintendo website pages began to display Disaster: Day of Crisis info. Now, Nintendo has officially announced October 24 as the European release date for Disaster: Day of Crisis. My fellow Americans and I can be glad that the game is, in fact, alive and that we will eventually see it on our soil.

Disaster: Day Of Crisis Showing Signs Of Life

August 17, 2008

The games Disaster: Day of Crisis and Project H.A.M.M.E.R. made their debut at E3 in 2006, but afterwards, their futures weren’t so bright. Many video game critics who played the game on the show floor said it was a generic beat ’em up and simply wasn’t that fun. Since then, the game has been cancelled leaving fans with bad puns and not so broken hearts. Disaster, on the other hand, had some potential that its hammer wielding cousin could not match.

To this day, an action survival game taking place in a natural disaster ridden city is a unique idea. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Ubisoft’s I Am Alive is the most similar game to Disaster, and all we’ve seen of it is a CG trailer. This is a game for Wii owners to look forwar to; it’s an original idea and it’s exclusive. Well, pages of the calender have flown off and we haven’t seen or heard anything about the game. Considering what happened to H.A.M.M.E.R. I’d say gamers were a tad skeptical.

Let’s do the math, shall we? First, you have worried gamers. Second, there’s the internet. Third, a video game that’s been kept in the shadows. These are the ingredients for disaster (pun), and as you might have guessed, rumors were coming from everywhere. Many thought the game was cancelled, others thought it was put on hold, but then Famitsu revealed that the game would be releasing in Japan on July 3, 2008. Obviously, that didn’t happen, because on May 17, 2008 Monolith announced that the game would be delayed. Since then, the game has been kept in the dark again, a couple of days ago, it showed some signs of life.

On August 13, 2008 the Australian Classification Board unveiled their rating for Disaster: Day of Crisis. The game emerged from the rating system with an ‘M’ due to “violence, themes and infrequent coarse language.” How’s that to remove Nintendo’s kiddy image? The game wasn’t ever officially said to be cancelled, so this must mean Monolith is making progress, and hopefully this news story will spark the release of new media. Thanks Australia!
