Vampire Rain: Altered Species

Rain

TGS: I don't mind.

Tucked away on one of the less celebrated sections of Microsoft's TGS booth was arguably one of the highlights of the show so far. Combining elements of Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell with the atmospheric horror of Silent Hill, Rain (announced as Vampire's Rain in Japan last year, but clearly referred to on the stand by its shorter name) stood out a mile away among many of the so-called next generation offerings given headline billing at the showcase event - and will certainly be a title to watch when it finally emerges in 2007.
