>> HONEY, WHO SHRUNK MY PLANE?

In a tasty zoomy setpiece, you watch your descent towards the "Outerlimits". It's bigger than that island by far, we're talking well massive.

 

<< LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING!

Astoundingly BIG carrier here, with multiple decks, twin hulls, and a noticeable dislike for my presence.

It also looks like its spreading its legs a bit.


>> HELICOPTER GO BOOM

I'm still not on form with the captions, sadly. In this one, the size of the carrier becomes apparent - its seems like the entire military strength of a small country is hidden within its bowels. It's also an excuse to bring out a couple of previously seen sub-bosses again, which I don't mind really as I am very fond of helicopters.

 

<< UNCAPTIONED

Honestly, I was trying really hard to caption this pic, but I just can't think of anything to say about it. Shoot the planes etc etc. Sorry, that was the best I could do.


>> SHADES OF RAIDEN

As wellas helicopters, I am quite partial to the tanks on legs enemies, made popular in the Raiden series of games. I think Raiden is the only game which can do these properly though, including the all-important grindy pneumatic noises when it lumbers about.

What, no endscreen? Click to find out why: LEVEL 7

 

<< THE GIT AGAIN

You just know there's going to be a big showdown involving this guy, but naturally when it does come down to it, his ship is going to be much too small for a final end of game baddie. I wonder what Capcom have up their sleeve for Mr Git. In the meantime, blast him futilely.
