The Demons are Coming
Demons of Mercy isn’t exactly the most well known next-gen title. In fact everyone whom I have asked has never heard of it or thought it was some sort of cheap horror flick. The reality is that the game, which will be hitting the 360, is a tale based on the Lara Croft memoirs in the not to distant future (the future bit kind of makes it sound even cheesier).
The game follows an assassin who goes by the name of Mercy Dawn who like many assassins (Jason Bourne, Agent 47 etc….) has a very disturbing past. At a young age Mercy (a very cheesy name to add to the cheesy story) was adopted, in a sense, by the Yakuza and trained to be ruthless and merciless (I wonder what kind of pointless puns involving her name will be used in the game) killer.
Of course like so many of these games Mercy is on one of her missions which involves her killing some overweight casino owner, when suddenly in a sudden rush of blood to the head she realises she must save the world from the war engulfing it between Heaven and David Hasselhoff… no wait I mean Hell.
So hopefully after reading this article the game may in a sense be imprinted into your mind. If you want to find out more and take a look at some rather neat comics by Maxum at the games official website HERE.
