Rise of Nightmares - Zombie Fight!!!

Punch, kick, it's all in the mind! Or...with your hands and feet in Rise of Nightmares, the Survival Horror melee-fest for Kinect from Sega.
Rise of Nightmares.
Check out this over the shoulder sneak peek from E3.

The Rise of Nightmares Stance
What at first seem slightly awkward controls soon become natural and, before you know it, you're sucked into a nightmare realist that will see you slashing, bashing, kicking and smashing your way through the hordes of beasties that await.

And, it's not just your hands and feet you get to use. Whilst it looks at first to be on rails, a subtle twist of the shoulders and the camera tilts, put one foot in front of the other and you stride forward, put your foot out more, you speed up. Not as refined, but this works more like a first person shooter.

Tooling up
The E3 demo allowed players access to a small sampling of the weapons available including: explosive vials, brass knuckles, tongs and a chainsaw.

We're certainly looking forward to seeing a little more in-depth game play from this truly unique offering. And to finding out if the opponents are pretty much mostly zombies, and seeing as most of the characters look like they've been pilfered from Sega's highly successful House of The Dead series, we're hopeful.
