Doomsday is steadily approaching the planet Earth; it is a time of war and hatred, a time where madmen rule the streets. The madman in this case is the Reverend and his Four Horsemen: Death, Plague, War, and the Beast. Together, they have initiated a reign of terror upon the world, glorifying and helping the planet's demise.
The question is who the heck is going to stop these terrorists? Players assume the role of Trey Kincaid, a nano-physicist played by Hollywood action star Bruce Willis. And darn it if he isn't the world's only hope; he has been called upon to defend the world, destroy the Four Horsemen, and thwart the Reverend's plans.
Apocalypse's goal is a simple one: progress throughout multiple levels and destroy, kill, and exterminate any and all resistance. Played from a third-person 3D viewpoint, Kincaid can maneuver in a 360-degree rotational manner; this is very important as the action takes place on all sides.
While players are given the freedom of movement, the levels are fairly linear in design. Often times having multiple layers/levels, action takes place in complex factories, prison centers, city streets and sewers systems, etc. In addition to having twenty motion-captured enemies on-screen at any given moment, players can destroy certain parts of levels like windows or doorways.
Because the Reverend has a very impressive amount of servants/forces, Trey Kincaid will need a huge supply of destructive weaponry. Fortunately, he'll come across various weapons throughout his quest; flamethrowers, semiautomatic pistols/rifles, homing missiles, rip lasers, and a grenade launcher are among the arsenal list. Additionally, players will collect health items and smart bombs.
Apocalypse supports the Dual Shock Analog Controller for both analog controls and the vibration function. Players can also save any game data to a Memory Card — one free block of data is needed. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
