Afrika

Take a walk on the wild side of PlayStation 3

The most visually impressive title on PS3? Metal Gear 4? MotorStorm? Nope - it's Afrika, the photograph-'em-up set in the sprawling Serengeti. But Afrika (working title) is very mysterious. Hard details are in short supply.

However, what we can gather from the most recent trailer is that you play as a David Attenborough type, banging about Africa filming lions and the like eating, drinking and having it off with each other, all the while avoiding being a) mauled or b) charged at. Thankfully, as the end of the trailer suggests, you'll have a jeep at your disposal so that you can catch up/escape the beautifully-realistic wildlife.

Zoom

The concept sounds ace - just imagine stealthily sneaking into a pride of lions to get that award-winning shot. Whether it'll let you wrestle the beasts like the late, great Steve Irwin we'll have to wait and see, but for now the prospect of 'shooting' hippos sounds like a welcome relief from shooting another load of generic gang members.

The verdict

It looks absolutely amazing and if the game is half as good as its next-gen animals, this wildlife-'em-up should be great. More soon.
