If you're looking for the next addictive game that just keeps getting better, Iji might be it. Iji is an extremely action-packed, challenging, free gesture-based strategic shooter with tons of hidden secrets, huge levels, and many powerful enemies. There's also a wealth of hidden collectibles, upgrades, extra endings and side missions to complete as well, along with an option to turn off screen-scraping to prevent the game from becoming too repetitive. There are also unlockable items which can be used to customize Iji according to your own customizations and layouts.
The story behind Iji revolves around the 'World View,' where much of the storyline is told by a Japanese animated cartoon called "World View," where you direct your gameplay through the viewfinder window while looking through the streets and buildings of Tokyo. While fighting a variety of bosses and unlocking hundreds of hidden collectibles and weapons as you go, the combat in Iji feels fluid and smooth, providing a great deal of challenge and excitement for players of all skill levels. It's clear that the creators of Iji were aware of the expectations that came with crafting a "fully featured" action-adventure title, and what they got was another world-shattering effort in the mold. Iji may not rival the massive hits of the Wii and Xbox, but it does have enough unique elements to make it one of the biggest surprises this year.
For the first time in a game where you direct everything through the window view, Iji takes the reader out of the comfort of their home via a world view, making the gameplay more engaging and believable. By moving the camera with your finger tips, rather than the controller stick, you can take a much closer look at each object and read its description for additional information about it. Along with a wealth of hidden collectibles to collect, weapons to equip and countless options for fighting against enemies, Iji is one of the best action games of the year. Iji has more secrets and mysteries to unveil, but for now, at least, it's an easy game to appreciate thanks to its fantastic visuals and excellent gameplay.
