Spyborgs Nintendo Wii £4.95 at Zavvi
Assemble a team of cybernetic super agents and plough through non-stop robot opponents in this co-operative fighting title from Capcom.
Choosing from a selection of slick super agents powered by cybernetic technology, players must work to avenge the death of a fellow teammate by tracking down those responsible and tearing through the waves of robot combatants standing in their way. Each character on offer has their own particular strengths and weaknesses, and players can gradually upgrade their skills as they progress by building on their arsenal of cyber-weaponry. Spyborgs also offers a co-operative mode so that two players can work through the storyline together. If playing alone, computer-controlled allies will take the reins.
Working as a team, Spyborg’s combat system offers a series of two man finishers that combine player moves into a more destructive force. Its basic fighting mechanics are simple to learn, meaning players of various skill levels can still team up. Visually, the game stands out as one of the most colourful and original on the system.
Spyborgs is a throwback to the era of two player beat-‘em-ups such as Double Dragon, with its own unique visual style and robust upgrade system bringing it up to date for Nintendo’s Wii.
