OVERVIEW

From the developers of the critically acclaimed Twisted Metal:Black™, comes a brawler of monstrous proportions. Sony Computer Entertainment America, Santa Monica and Incog Inc. Entertainment have teamed up to develop War of the Monsters exclusively for PlayStation®2. Inspired by classic sci-fi and giant monsters movies of the '50s and '60s, War of the Monsters features gargantuan beasts in a raging battle on planet Earth.

Get ready to embody the soul of a 100-foot tall monstrosity as you clash with opponents in thriving cities, run rampant through bustling streets, pulverize opponents with body slams and fight off military defenses. War of the Monsters enables you to re-live your favorite monster movies with ten different creatures engaging in all out carnage. Ten fully interactive environments offer numerous weapons, including steel girders, radio antenna, moving vehicles, building rubble, army tanks and more. Clobber opponents with thunderous uppercuts, hand-to-hand weapons and destructive special attacks. Use huge hunks of debris as a shield, topple buildings onto your foes or pick up and throw tanker trucks like toys. Take advantage of environmental attacks such as tidal waves and earthquakes to defeat your opponent and claim total domination. Skillfully scale towering buildings, wage war on rooftops and bring them crashing down. Relish in the dramatic original musical score as each monster slugs it out for ultimate supremacy. Which monster will revel in triumph and which one will surrender to its brutality? Only one will rule this War of the Monsters.
