The year is 2047, and you are in a city where things have taken an ill turn. As a man named simply ‘Crow’, you are assigned a mission to purge the city of a large threat. That threat is Khan, a terrorist and drug dealer in charge of a massive syndicate. It’s going to be an intense mission for Crow, and to make things even harder, there is no one trustworthy in the entire city. Even the police are involved with Khans dirty doings. This calls for Crow to use to a little caution and stealthy action.

As players climb the ladder and advance on knocking the cartel, Khan, off the top, they will have other foes to deal with on the way up. You will be required to stock many of Khan’s lessers and kill them as well. This isn’t your normal action game that allows you to shoot at will, no, FCK requires you to follow your prey and choose a correct time to attack. You basically could follow them throughout their entire daily routines; going to the gym, the coffee shop, the bank, etc.

“Dress like me again and I’ll shoot your friends!”

When you finally choose to strike, you’ll have a huge selection of ways to kill, including melee weapons, an array of guns, and even automobiles. Also, since the game revolves around the clock, your time to assault may fit better at night than during the day. Killing the donut man at 7:00AM wouldn’t be a great idea.

As we saw in the trailer, the future will bring some awesome cars and weapons. How could you kill without a shiny convertable red car? You couldn’t, it’s just not possible! It’s also not possible to be a hit man without an excessively large rocket launcher, and FCK will surely have both of those key items and many more that will gratify you.

“I wonder if  she’s bad? I wonder if she’s naughty?

Crow will be surrounded by a city of crime, drugs and murder, but everything will look amazing. FCK runs on the well-known Unreal Engine 3 graphics, and it is the first Japan produced game to do so. This only means that another remarkable looking game is going to grace Xbox 360. However, graphics won’t make this game popular; it’s going to be the gameplay. Although the game wasn’t playable at E3, the movie we saw looked irresistible. Infact, I had a considerable urge to just jump into the game and play it right then and there. Frame City Killer has all of the ingredients to deliver a well-wrapped game.
