P.N.03

Directed by Shinji Mikami and starring female mercenary Vanessa Z. Scheidner, P.N.03 is an intense action game set in a stark futuristic world.

Vanessa's area of expertise is eliminating robots. When a colonial settlement turns into a killing field after a CAMS (Computer Arms Management System) goes haywire, it is up to her to destroy the legions of rogue mechanoids that have taken control.

Extremely agile, Vanessa's moves resemble those of a dancer and players will need to constantly bob, weave and fire to complete the game's numerous missions. But, Vanessa does not rely on guns to inflict damage; she has the ability to fire lasers directly from her hands! When needed, Vanessa can charge a special attack which unleashes itself from her back; this Energy Drive features a lock on and causes extensive destruction.

Dressed all in white, Vanessa compliments P.N.03's crisp, monochrome environments which ensure that enemies are easy to spot and lock onto. But, not all enemies are what they at first seem. Just when you think you have got the better of an enemy and learnt its attack patterns it will suddenly transform and launch a very different type of attack.

Destroyed enemies yield points and power-ups with additional points available for those players who can successfully pull off combos - each time Vanessa destroys an enemy the next robot must be eliminated before a countdown reaches zero. At the end of each mission these points can be exchanged to increase Vanessa's offensive and defensive abilities.

P.N.03 is a "serious shooting game" where a combination of old school game play meets fluid graphics and stylish dance-like movement. How will Vanessa suppress the technological terrors of the CAMS? Only by completing P.N.03 will players find out.

This is basically it: You go to a room, destroy robots, go to another room destroy robots, go to yet another room and destroy yet more robots. It was ok only because you could buy more suits and customize your character as the game goes on, so I would give it a 2/5.
