Eve of Extinction is a 3D beat-'em-up featuring weapons-based combat. Players assume the role of Josh Galloway as he seeks revenge against a biogenetic corporation for experimenting on his girlfriend, Eliel Evergrand, code named EOE. Although Eliel's body was taken from her, her essence has been transformed into pure energy, allowing her to appear in hologram form to help players navigate the seven levels of the game.
Josh begins his fight with a sword, but will encounter additional weapons as the story progresses. Each weapon gains experience over time as it is used to defeat enemies, resulting in more combo attacks. Also specific to each weapon is a special move called the Legacy Drive, which involves first tracing a symbol using the right analog stick before the attack can be executed. Each Legacy Drive attack uses a variable amount of energy represented as a horizontal meter at the top of the screen.
In addition to special attacks, weapons can perform specific actions, such as a rod being used as a pole vault to reach higher areas or triggering a particular sword's ability to shoot its blades toward a wall like a grappling hook. Weapons found along the way include swords, rods, dagger-like blades, and more as players seek out enemies, bosses, and helpful items using a top-down radar screen. Options include a choice of four difficulty levels and the ability to save progress using a memory card. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
