The machines have won, but humans continue to strive against them. You play Gunlok, a lone member of the Advanced Special Forces Group. After a period of training and contemplation you have achieved superior control of your battle armor and earth powers. You decide now is the time to strike back. Now is the time to take the fight to the Corporation. As the game starts, you set out on a quest to destroy the Corporation, along the way solving puzzles and battling robots as you strive to free mankind. During the game, Gunlok picks up companions and together, through team cooperation and using each other's unique abilities, they battle their way to a final confrontation with the evil at the heart of the Corporation.
Gunlok is a fully 3D game; you will need to use your camera to see everything as your characters move through the landscape. Tilt and rotate the camera to achieve the best viewing angle for each situation. Your characters have special abilities-- to succeed you must learn about their strengths and weaknesses. Not all characters can use all weapons, for instance, only Frend can use the heaviest weapons. Your resources are limited, so don't waste the most powerful ammo on the weakest enemies; you don't always need to destroy every enemy in order to complete your mission.
