Some games just more and more as the years go by – and Super Stardust HD is one of them. It’s been almost 4 years since the title was first released on the PS3 and once again the game is getting new content to breathe life back into the game. The DLC pack is called the “Impact” mode and will be available to download at the end of the month.
Super Stardust HD is one of the top selling PSN exclusives and has seen a number of updates to the game since it was released back in June 2007. 2008 saw the release of the “Solo Pack”, offering new game modes such as Endless, Survival, Bomber, and Time Attack. That was followed by the multiplayer “Team Pack” featuring split-screen co-op and deathmatch modes for up to 4 players.
Additionally, the game then broke new ground by becoming the first ever PlayStation 3 game to feature Trophies. In 2010 the game was once again updated to include real 3D, one of the few of its kind as it creates 120 unique frames per second. Now in 2011 with the new Impact mode add-on, Super Stardust HD continues to be the most comprehensive shooter experience available.
The Impact mode plays on and twists the game rules – in place of the weapon system your ship is now fitted with an experimental new matter-to-energy boost engine technology, which means once you activate the boost, you can stay in boost as long as you can hit meteors and enemies with it!
This mode also features much higher score multipliers – as long as you boost the multiplier keeps growing and growing! This is the most fast-paced and adrenaline inducing add-on to the game yet. Look out for the Impact mode on the PlayStation Store on March 30th for €1.99/£1.59.
