Renegades, robots and pirates!
Keep your trigger finger happy with Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates - three great games no one Blu-ray Disc. In Time Crisis: Razing Storm you have to battle it out with an army of enemies in a massively destructible environment set in a futuristic world overrun by renegade soldiers and robotic menaces. Taking on the role of a member of an elite Special Forces unit called S.C.A.R. (Strategic Combat Rescue) you are sent to South American to capture a rebel leader who has just masterminded a devastating attack on American soil.
In Time Crisis 4, the action begins in California, where intelligence officials from the US Military uncover the existence of a top secret weapon that terrorists plan to steal. The weapon, a biological one that transforms insect-like creatures into tools of destruction called Terror Bites, must be retrieved at all costs, which means it's up to you to track it down and seize it.
Deadstorm Pirates is a genre mash-up of classic adventure stories inspired by the likes of Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones where you and a teammate have to travel around various islands battling nefarious sea monsters and ghouls, while searching for hidden treasures.

For the ultimate arcade shooting experience Time Crisis: Razing Storm and its companions can be played using your PlayStation Move motion controller. Once you have set up your PlayStation Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye camera, you'll then need to calibrate the motion controller by following the on-screen guidelines. Ready? Then it's time to start shooting! In Time Crisis: Razing Storm environments are destructible, so be sure to shoot at enemies hiding behind crates, barrels and doors. Keep an eye out for red barrels as you fight your way through the streets of the war torn South American city because they're perfect for taking down large groups of enemies all at once.
Over the course of the game you'll wield a heavy duty arsenal including machine guns and rocket launchers, but it's best to keep the more powerful weaponry on standby for some of the game's giant bosses such as the Raptors. The Raptors are robotic beasts capable of ramming you to the floor in a single swoop. The best way to avoid getting slammed is by using your shield. To pull it up, simply press and hold the X button on the PlayStation Move motion controller. With the Raptor dazed from smashing into your shield you can move in for the attack.
While Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates are both on-rails games, where you are automatically guided through the environment. Time Crisis: Razing Storm features a first person style navigation system that allows you to freely move around levels using your Wireless Controller or the PlayStation Move navigation controller. Alongside the story campaign there is an additional mode for you to get to grips called Sentry Mode, where you and three of your friends must take turns trying to achieve the highest score by stopping prisoners from escaping a maximum security prison using a variety of weapons and techniques.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates all feature two player co-operative modes, which means you and a friend can play through each of the campaigns while working together to achieve the highest scores. In Time Crisis: Razing Storm you and up to seven of your friends can compete in a variety of battle modes via PlayStation Network.
These modes include everything from Team Deathmatch through to Capture The Flag and King of the Hill, where you're tasked with objectives such as taking down your opponents as many times as possible for the coveted first place position, or holding on to an area on the map for the longest time.
Both Time Crisis 4 and Deadstorm Pirates also feature two player co-operative modes and allow for online ranking via PlayStation Network, which means the faster you complete missions and the more points you score, the higher up on the board you and your friend will appear.
