mega MIRROR GAMES: FINE-TUNED GAMES.
THE PS2 is bringing the worlds of music and videogames closer together. In 1994 the futuristic racer WipeOut was the first game to have a cool soundtrack with songs from Leftfield and Orbital. Now WipeOut Fusion for the PS2 features tunes by top DJs including Future Sound Of London and Utah Saints.
But three new PS2 games, Space Channel 5, Rez and the eagerly awaited Parappa The Rapper 2, feature music in new ways.
Sony's Space Channel 5 stars the sassiest cyberbabe since Lara Croft. You play Ulala, a TV reporter at Space Channel 5, who must out-dance invading alien Morolians to the backing of an ultra-cool Japanese soundtrack. And the groundbreaking Rez turns your living room into a club. On the surface it's a sci-fi shoot 'em up, but when you fire at your enemies you release sound frequencies. These sounds eventually build up to create a rhythm and the rhythm changes the graphics on the screen.
The original Parappa game was a smash and the noodle-munching rapper is set for his PS2 debut next month. In Parappa the Rapper 2 you help him dance his way to defeating the Noodle Gang and winning Sunny Funny's heart. We loved all three games and we think you'll dig 'em too.
