Maximo vs. Army of Zin - PS2 - Preview
E3 2003 - First Look
Maximo vs. Army of Zin takes place eight months after his first adventure. In their search for Sophia, Maximo and Grim run into the Army of Zin. The Army of Zin is a clockwork army powered by souls, and Maximo must free these souls as well as protect innocent bystanders that are being attacked by this army.
Maximo vs. Army of Zin is expanding on what gamers liked from the past Maximo, and getting rid of what wasn’t so popular. One thing that was mentioned was that this new Maximo will be a little easier than the first one. Plus, no more paying for continues.
Maximo vs. Army of Zin will add more weapons than the previous Maximo, along with 30 new moves. Different boxer shorts will also offer different abilities like “Treasure Seeker” or “Boxers of Burning Vigor!” Grim will also be a playable character, and innocents are now something more for Maximo to worry about. The game will span 26 levels across 6 different environments.
The graphics are more lush and detailed, making the Maximo experience that much more enjoyable. The game is due out this fall, but also keep an eye out for Dreamwave’s Maximo comic book, and the two new action figure sets by Toycom and BMA Toys.
