In the game; the Men in Black discover a space prison hulk carrying the most dangerous alien gangs in the galaxy that crashed into the Earth’s ocean decades ago. With a large number of unlicensed and unaccounted for aliens hiding out on Earth; each one a hardened criminal there’s only one possible course of action. It’s time for agents Jay and Kay to hunt them down and bring them in—dead or alive.
- Men in Black 2™: Alien Escape is a fast-paced third-person perspective action game liberally infused with the trademark humour of the smash 1997 movie and the upcoming sequel. The game is divided into five distinct episodes including a Nuclear Station the Docks and the streets of Manhattan. All episodes include various levels and challenges to complete prior to progressing through the game.
- At the beginning of each level players select either Jay the athletic reckless fast-talker or Kay the confident veteran. While Jay moves at a faster pace Kay’s knowledge of weapons gives him a higher weapon damage and health bar. Allowing players to switch between characters gives them the opportunity to experiment with various weapons and character strengths adding variety to the gameplay.
- Additionally the non-playable character partner often appears in computer-generated cut-scenes and via comlink throughout the game providing back up advice and of course wisecracks. Other key members of the Men in Black 2™: Alien Escape team like Zed also make appearances. Adding to the mayhem is a host of new aliens featured in the upcoming movie sequel as well as popular creatures from the 1997 film including the coffee-drinking Manitoba. While some aliens are allies and informants most are hostile and will do anything to take over the planet.
