haunting 3D environments with a choice of 55 mission-based levels, 64-player DeathMatch and
'Capture The Flag'.
Mission Pack: The Reckoning - Pillage eighteen levels of industrial-landscape infested with
a cast of terrifying enemies. Using your skill and weapons including the ricocheting Ion Ripper,
and Phalanx Particle Cannon to burn a path through Gekks and Bots and finally settle the score!
