E3 – THQ's Lineup

THQ also hosted a magnificent display for the sequel to the sleeper hit Destroy All Humans, Destroy All Humans II – Make War, Not Love. The one-level demo featured graphics and gameplay nearly identical to its predecessor – good news for those who liked the first game, but something that could spell critical disaster, come release.The displays at E3 inferred gameplay would take place in San Francisco and London. Another title showcased by THQ was Monster House. Monster House is a 3rd person shooter based around the paranormal occupancy of a certain house, and the title is based on the upcoming movie of the same name. There are a multiple playable characters. A large variety of different and unique weapons are available. The game features a slick animated style, but the controls and camera were a little difficult to grasp.THQ also displayed Avatar in a pre-release demo, hiding the game version of the popular cartoon series between Destroy All Humans II and Monster House.The game was largely repetitive. Combo moves were automatic, and while the ease of the game is appropriate for something that will likely be marketed to the under-15 crowd, older gamers will likely grow very bored with the repetitive gameplay and lackluster animation. The viewpoint is from about 70 degrees downward, but the camera often allows a player to move to the edge of the screen before scrolling, leaving the player vulnerable to a bevy of attacks. Enemies are typical of the genre – one easily-defeated type and one harder. Combos in the game are learned rapidly, though the somewhat lengthy animation sequences involved leave one open to attacks.

More from THQ will be forthcoming, as release dates near and builds become more refined.
