Combat of GiantsTM Dinosaurs 3D
The player is tasked to show mastery in defeating enemies during real-time combat sessions and unite forces to restore peace on the ancient land. In combat, the player can choose between six real-time actions such as fencing, blocking, evading, hitting, pushing and combo. With the new “Ring Out” tactical combat feature, players can push their opponents out of the ring. The player roams the Jurassic world in full 3D and feels the depth of the breathtaking landscapes such as the Jungle, Desert and Volcano Mountain, and obtains special rewards by interacting with other living creatures and by crushing trees and rocks.
An adaptation of the acclaimed Rayman 2 original game on Dreamcast, Rayman 3D gives players the opportunity to rediscover the incredible adventures of Rayman in a deeper and optimized universe. The player progresses in a 3D world through forty-five areas set across thirteen dangerous regions of Rayman’s world to defeat unmerciful enemies, including Admiral Razorbeard and the Henchman. In the game, players can run, climb, jump, swim, fly, loop-the-loop and even water-ski. Additionally, Rayman still has his famous ability to fly as a helicopter using his hair!
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Shadow Wars
As the commander of the Ghosts, the most elite special operations fighting force in the world, the mission is to stop the Russian ultranationalist Yuri Treskayev from coming to power. From the hot deserts of Kazakhstan to the towns and villages of Ukraine and the frozen lands of Siberia, the player must discover and disable the secret Soviet-era “Dead Hand” bases that Treskayev is using to build an army of drones to seize power. The player has access to full resources to build, train and equip its team using increasingly high-tech weapons and armor.
