Here is one of the most un-tapped IPs that could be made into a kick-ass video game, IN video game form. A 2004 video from the Dead to Rights 2 team at Namco Bandai, of their in-development Snake Plissken’s ESCAPE. Set in the world of Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. (the latter, I felt, was not quite up to par with the first one), the game would have featured the cooperation of BOTH John Carpenter and Kurt Russell himself. Unfortunately, this game will never come to fruition now, but we can dream.
I reminded of a line from the first film that I always thought was great. Listening to Lee Van Cleef’s “Bob Hauk” tell Snake, “I’m about to kick your ass out of the world, war hero…”. Damn, that movie has some great genre lines.
