Konami has released another downloadable character for Hard Corps Uprising. Leviathan enters the fray:
“Bahamut’s defection to the Rebellion stunned everyone, no one more than his chief rival in the Empire’s army, Leviathan. Beneath the bitter rivalry was a deep respect, and so the questions gnawed at him: Why did he leave? How could he betray us? Why did he choose that path? Base Attributes: Only one weapon slot Available Attributes: Moonsault (backflip), Grenade Throw, Sliding Attack”
By having only 1 weapon slot as opposed to 2, you really have to think about what weapon is the best choice for the level you are facing. He also starts out with 1 health bar which really ups the challenge. Luckily, after playing through the first level a few times you’ll have enough CP to upgrade him into a more viable choice. Once unlocked, his new moves are pretty cool. The Grenade Throw tosses grenades in an arc in front of him, and the Moonsault has him flipping backwards in an arc. You can toss grenades during this move but you can not use your gun.
For the cost of 200 points on Xbox Live, I highly recommend getting him. He keeps the game fresh and adds to an already cool character roster. I’m really glad that Konami is showing support for this game by releasing new content and hope that more characters an levels are to come. And if you haven’t picked this game up yet, what are you waiting for?!
