Cy Girls (2004)

Cy Girls just want to have fun.

I am not familiar with the line of Japanese-made toys that this is based on but I am just a sucker for offbeat video game premises. Cy Girls - I know, it sounds like the title of a bad porn - comes with two separate discs for the two elite agents that you can play as: the gun-totting Ice and the sword-slicing Aska. Though both discs feature shared locations for the player to infiltrate, each of the disc features a unique storyline through the selected agent's perspective. This makes the whole occasion more special than it is and Konami could have taken an easier route by cramming everything into one disc. The game takes place in the future and other than the big rolling black-out that engulfed the world that started the narrative, everything else is revealed slowly throughout the game. Both characters control similarly other than the obvious difference that one is a long-range expect while the other excels in close-quarter combat. I like Aska better as a character but I do prefer controlling Ice better because the camera is not very responsive when the enemies are very close to you.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
