The Game
Reflecting the stylized action of the Marvel comic series and Sony Pictures' upcoming film, Ghost Rider offers a unique combination of high impact combat and motorcycle action. Johnny Blaze is Ghost Rider-destined to haunt America's highways, visiting his righteous wrath upon the souls of the wicked and the damned. The high-octane storyline takes Ghost Rider to a large variety of scenes and locations while facing off against familiar faces from both the Marvel comic universe and Sony Pictures' movie.

Features:

  • Authentic Comic Storyline - Famed comic writers Garth Ennis and Jimmy Palmiotti penned the game's storyline which picks up where the movie leaves off.
  • Vengeful Combat - Fast paced, combo-based combat against multiple enemies using Ghost Rider's trademark hellfire chain and hellfire shotgun.
  • Adrenaline Fuelled Motorbike Action - Ride the terrifying Hell Cycle, swing your chain at enemies and use the bike's powers: ride on water, boost over jumps, power down under obstacles.
  • So far the website suggests a ps2 and gameboy advance release, presumably to coincide with the movie release.

    The Comic
    Ghost Rider is the name of several fictional, supernatural anti-heroes in the Marvel Comics universe. Marvel had previously used the name for a Western character whose name was later changed to Night Rider and subsequently to Phantom Rider.

    The first supernatural Ghost Rider is stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze, who, in order to save the life of his mentor, agreed to give his soul to Satan (later revealed to be Mephisto). Instead his soul was bonded with the entity called Zarathos. When emitting Zarathos’ powers, Blaze's head became a flaming skull and he wielded a fiery motorcycle and trademark blasts of hellfire from his skeletal hands. He starred in an eponymous series from 1973-1983.

    I just hope the movie is better than the game....

    The Elderly said...

    Whether it's the voiceover or not, but what little i've seen says cult hit... the imagery is familiar maybe that's why.... only a trailer though, and given the history of movie/game tie-ins the game is already carrying the kiss of death with it....

    The Elderly said...

    Blogger Fire Control said...

    the sprinkler system should turn itself off after about an hour...

    The Elderly said...
