  • Features

  • According to a demonstration given to Edge magazine, the game will use a unique control scheme.
  • A trigger button on the PlayStation 3 controller will move the character forward. It will take advantage of the button's analogue function, allowing the user to control the speed of the character's movement by pressing harder or softer on the button.
  • The left analogue stick will control the movement of the character's head and the direction the character moves in relation to where the character is looking. David Cage explains that this frees the movement of the character from the perspective of the camera.
  • The rest of the game is played using a series of context sensitive actions such as picking up a bottle in a grocery store and hitting a robber on the head with it, and quick time events, normally for chase and combat sequences.
  • Players are able to bring up a selection of their character's current thoughts by holding the L1 button and pressing corresponding buttons to say or do what they're thinking.
  • These thoughts will sometimes blur, and selecting them at the wrong time will affect the character's reaction, causing them to say or do something in the wrong way.
  • Action sequences, such as when the player is being attacked, play out as quick time events. Players will be presented with various symbols, requiring them to either press buttons, move the right analogue stick in a certain way, or shake or tilt the controller.
  • Failure to execute these commands take the story along a different path, and certain mistakes will lead to a character's death. For example, in one scene,
  • Norman Jayden is interrogating a suspect named Mad Jack when he starts to suffer from withdrawal symptoms and button prompts will show up. If he fails to take his drugs, he will be taken to a scenario in which he will have to escape from a car before it is thrown into a crusher, killing him.
  • In scenes like these, a 'timer' scene is shown at the bottom of the screen, indicating how long the player has to escape from his predicament.
  • If a character dies, the game does not end, and play control switches to another character, with the events of the previous character's death affecting the story.
  • In the event that all four characters die, there is a proper conclusion to the story and the game ends.

  • This game features a Risk & Reward scoring system based on enemy and bullet chaining. To chain means to hit an row of enemy and likewise soaking up bullets within a short time frame. You can use all your power to chain enemies, but be carefully with bombs and rockets as they might break your chain.
  • Sometimes you have multiple ways to destroy certains enemy types such as Bullies. This enemy just flies up and down and has its hitzone in the middle. Now you can just shoot the Bully up or fly behind it and shoot at it from there. The hitzone on its back is weaker and gives you more score to gain. To do this is pretty dangerous, but if you risk it you can get your reward.
  • While hyper soaking, enemy bullets are harmless to you, so you can also use this feature as a bullet shield when playing for survival instead scoring. But be warned, enemies themselves and their lasers can still defeat you.
  • To activate Hyper Soaking just press R, then your soaking bar decreases to the minimum while soaking up bullets - mind, the more bullets you soak the longer the hyper soaking stays active. Furthermore, you can collect Soak Up items to increase your soak bar.
  • The power pod in front of the ship is able to soak up enemy bullets when blocking them directly and when Hyper Soaking is active, bullets even accalerate to fly to your pod like it was magnetic. You can use this feature to let bullets - which aren't very reachable and/or more on screen then you can handle at a time - heading to your pod to gain more score.
