As Ash, the leader, your role is to lead a handpicked squad through futuristic plague-infested city streets while fighting off bio-terrorists in X Squad, the first squad-based 3-D action shooter for the PlayStation 2 console.
In X Squad, gamers command their squad through a unique and sophisticated “buddy” artificial intelligence system. As Ash, you will give the other three team members general orders such as attack or cover. But just like real-life characters, they have minds of their own and will talk back, think and act freely.
Ash must lead his team of skilled male and female soldiers -- with a huge assortment of weaponry -- into a dangerous war zone fighting through incredible cityscapes, subways, dark sewers and a variety of other locations. Terrorists wait in ambush, attacking from levels above and below, often catching the player’s team in a deadly crossfire. To successfully complete the mission, the player must best utilize their members’ unique abilities, ranging from demolitions to sniping.
X Squad features enhanced special effects unique to the PlayStation 2 console including fog, smoke, mist and rain. The game uses over 2,500 motion captured animations to deliver as realistic an experience as possible. Each character contains over 5,000 polygons to fully detail each character’s unique look and style.
