OverviewRampage: Total Destruction
is the latest game in the once popular Rampage
arcade series. A game that is focused on the complete and utter destruction of real life cities in a fictional future. You are given the option to play as one of many different monsters, including franchise regulars George
, and Ralph
. You are given seven cities for your destroying pleasure (eight in the Wii version) and each city is comprised of 8-10 unique blocks. Total Destruction
features numerous different game modes including Campaign, King of the City, King of the World, and Timed Run. You can unlock additional monsters by playing through Campaign mode and finding secrets hidden throughout the levels. You can also upgrade each monster's abilities by completing challenges in-game and picking up collectibles/upgrades. Total Destruction
was created as a piece of fan service for fans of the franchise and features versions of the original Rampage
arcade game, as well as Rampage World Tour
unlocked right from the beginning.
In the campaign mode, you take on the role of one of the humans mutated by the Scum Labs Corporation. Dr. Vector is the head of the Scum Labs Corporation and the man responsible for your current predicament. You must embrace your current situation as a giant monster and fight your way through a group of different cities causing as much damage as physically possible, all while freeing other monsters created by Dr. Vector.
Each cities takes place across 8-10 different blocks and each block ends with a boss battle against Dr. Vector. It isn't a requirement to defeat Dr. Vector on the final block of each city, but you will lose out on a fair amount points if you don't manage to defeat the evil doctor. The campaign mode can be played co-op with a friend in local multi-player.
King of the City (1-2 Players)
In King of the City, two monsters compete to destroy an entire city, block by block. The object of this mode is to cause more destruction than your fellow monster and while you can attack each other, the main goal is still to destroy every building on every block. King of the City is only played with two monsters competing with each other and the second monster can either be controlled by another person or the in-game AI.
The mode is broken up into "rounds" comprised of each block and the monster that causes the most destruction on the block is crowned winner of that round. After the city is completely destroyed and no buildings remain, the monster with the most rounds won is crowned "King of the City".
King of the World (1-2 Players)
King of the World is essentially the same as the King of the CIty mode, only on a much grander scale. In King of the World, you compete to fully destroy every city in the game and once a player has been crowned "King of the City" on over half of the available cities, he is then crowned "King of the World". This mode is also for two monsters only and can be player against another person or the in-game AI.
In Timed Run you are given a specific amount of time in which to fully destroy one entire city. The mode is broken down into blocks and any time that wasn't used on one block will carry over to the next block. This mode is only geared towards single-player play, but individuals can compete by alternating to see who can destroy a city in the fastest time possible.
