War of the Worlds
War of the Worlds: Arthur's Second Diary Shows More Gameplay
Written By
View author's profile

Having braved Paddington Station in his previous diary entry, War of the Worlds hero Arthur Clark moves on to the usually green and bustling Hyde Park, which in the game is a charred destroyed ruin, plagued by laser-spitting tripod walkers and other Martian nastiness.

With Sir Patrick Stewart lending his dulcet tones to the character of Arthur, the trailer features more of the actor's voice-over, as we take a look at Hyde Park, where a gigantic, hulking piece of Martian machinery is waiting for you. Scary stuff.

Inspired by Flashback, Out Of This World, Prince of Persia and Heart of Darkness, War of the Worlds is a side-scrolling action adventure that follows the timeline of the 1953 movie adaptation and HG Wells' original novel. Check out the War of the Worlds gameplay video and first dev diary for another look at the game, which is coming to XBLA later this autumn.

Looks good actually.

After Tom Cruise took a shit on the war of the worlds concept for everyone. It will be nice for it to go back to its atmospheric and highly creative narrative.

@3 The chances of anything coming from Mars, are a million to one... they said.

Looks like a low budget platformer, trading on the atmospheric 'War Of The Worlds' License.. Anythin over 800 points and it's a miss..

@5 Not really 'low-budget' when Partic Stewart is narrating

Looks alright to me. I wish they would make a film straight from the HG Wells book, but I guess Victorian England doesn't have the appeal of modern day US...@1 Cruise ruins everything, the whole Jack Reacher thing makes me wonder what the world is coming to.

@7 And in his defense, you seem like a blind fanboy moron who likes to take the "anyone who has a different opinion than mine must be a troll" approach. Oh what a nightmarish game world this would be if it was a written rule that everyone had to like everything they saw. A world without constructive criticism... imagine that. Sounds like the Dark Ages of Europe if you ask me. Someone give Arron114 a time machine so he can go back to those days like he seemingly wants to.

Got to admit, I'm in love with the style. Looks like the baby that Limbo and Shadow Complex would have.

@ 5

You're only limiting yourself with your narrow horizon and jaded perception.

Cannot wait for this. I only hope they do it the justice the novel deserves.
