“GLOBAL VR® today announced that it is beginning to ship production units of the highly anticipated “super-shooter,” Paradise Lost. Paradise Lost is inspired by Ubisoft’s hit game Far Cry Instincts®. Providing a completely new gaming experience, one which is designed with the arcade industry in mind, Paradise Lost takes players to a tropical island paradise gone awry. Lush tropical forests and sandy beaches belie the danger that awaits players as they move through a fantasy world of non-stop action.When asked for comment about the game Jeff Shotwell, Paradise Lost Producer, said, “The development of this game was truly a collaborative effort. We have gone the extra mile to make sure that Paradise Lost is clearly differentiated from all other games in the location and offers an experience like none other!” He went on to point out that Paradise Lost is one of the few games ever manufactured that offers players a sit-down shooting experience; what GLOBAL VR refers to as a super-deluxe cabinet. “This is a game people are not going to simply walk by. Its compelling design and outstanding graphics entice players to stop and play!”
Game play elements include 2 player cooperative-action, 50 missions on 5 stunning maps, and a variety of weapons. When combined with force feed-back guns with solenoid action and a 52” rear projection LCD this sit-down super-deluxe shooter provides a totally unique gaming experience.
First seen in London at the ATEi Show January 2007, Paradise Lost was introduced to the domestic market at last month’s ASI show where, many industry pundits agreed, Paradise Lost may just be a paradise found!”
Ignoring the hype/spin factor, this game may do pretty well since it closely follows the Far Cry universe (despite dumping the Far Cry name from the title). Either way big cabinets attract a lot of attention but they demand a lot of cash from arcade operators so it may be a little while before the game shows up at smaller arcades .
