Take the role of a barbarian hero and take control of the carnage in this graphic, cel-shaded fighting adventure for the PS2, developed in-house at Sony CEA studios. The Mark of Kri tells the tale of the warrior Rau, who begins with the relatively straightforward task of clearing the jungles near his home of a group of troublesome bandits. Before his tale is all told, though, Rau will explore and fight through six different 3D environments, slowly realizing his deepening involvement in an evil plot that threatens his whole world.
The game features a proprietary system for targeting and attacking multiple enemies, designed for easy control with the DualShock 2. The player targets an enemy with a focus beam that's aimed with right analog stick. Multiple enemies can be targeted at once. Enemies in range of the beam are automatically assigned different gamepad buttons, the symbols of which appear above their heads. Once they're targeted, Rau attacks each enemy when its assigned button is pressed. Combo attacks are performed by pressing a target's button multiple times, or by incorporating other, unassigned action buttons into the attack.
