    Free Running by Eidos

    Scheduled release: August 30th, 2005

    Free Running, developed by Core Design, will be the world's first ever video game based on the urban phenomenon of parkour.

    Parkour, the art of movement, is less a sport and more a way of life. Its participants, known as Free Runners or Traceurs, view the environment and its obstacles, urban or natural, as a series of challenges to be overcome. To the Traceurs, parkour has a philosophical appeal: they feel transformed by the experience, free from the grind of city life. Since its inception in Paris during the mid-1980s, it has spread across the globe and now has an international army of exponents and enthusiasts.

    In Free Running, the concrete jungle becomes your urban playground as you run, vault, jump or climb over obstacles in the most fluid and flowing manner possible. Test the boundaries of human ability as you perform death-defying leaps and jaw-dropping trips across inner-city rooftops. To be crowned King of Parkour, you must master over 50 moves, tricks and stunts including 'Kong Vaults', 'Pharaoh Climbs', 'Rail Split Vaults' and 'Vertical Wall Runs' in a variety of game modes while racing against human or computer-controlled competitors.

    This is the first I've heard of PoPoLoCrois. Never even heard of the anime. The screenshots look pretty interesting tho. I'll be keeping my eye out for this one.

    The Free Running one could be totally gay, or actually refreshing and good. The key will be if there are a LOTTTTT of places to explore and discover. Give us a whole city to explore or something. Otherwise this game will feel old a few hours in.

    I'd also think it'd be essential for us to be able to make our own levels, or have a random level generator or something.

    I get the feeling though that this game is going to really suffer sales wise.

    I'm really disappointed with the game line-up so far. i mean August included. The only good games out so far is:

    -MC3
    -Wipeout: Pure
    -Dynasty Warriors
    -Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

    What other good games are out there?
