I was somewhat surprised to find that for such a well polished and good looking game Wrack has had little press in its coming release week, it is rather disappointing especially considering how it looks. Wrack looks to be a great first person shooter done in a distinctly cell shaded style complete with jumping puzzles and boss battles.
Wrack fuses together two game types, by taking a lot of influence from Doom and Duke Nukem 3D along with extremely hazardous level design from Contra and Castlevania has allowed Final Boss Entertainment to create this great unique title. To be honest it all sounds pretty good as combining the things that made Doom and Contra great can only result in a winning formula. Don’t just take my word for it, view the video below and see for yourself:
The styling in Wrack reminds me a lot of the questionable release title XIII, however Wrack seems to offer much more in terms of unique gameplay which XIII did lack and the one thing I loved from that game was the cell shaded look. I am definitely looking forward to the release of this game tomorrow as from all that I have seen it looks great, although I have heard the number of levels are quite limited there is however a wealth of user created levels from the bundled level editor, so I am sure plenty of content is available.
The final cherry on top is the music, the sounds have all been composed by Bobby Prince who has worked on many awesome game projects in the past including the Doom series, Duke Nukem 3D and Wolfenstien 3D making the audio content top notch alongside the stunning visuals.
If Wrack does appeal to you it is still available at the pre-order price for a very sizeable discount on the game. Wrack is officially launched tomorrow on Desura . The website to check out all the latest from the guys over at Final Boss Entertainment can be found here.
