Ice Age In Time For Holidays

Activision has released the new Ice Age game in time for the movie release and school holidays

Based on the d 3-D animated feature that debuted last week, the Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs game allows players to command their favorite movie characters, including Sid, Manny, Diego, Scrat and the relentless one-eyed Dino hunting weasel, Buck.

The Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs video game takes players on a quest through the frozen tundra to a lush jungle teeming with mysterious plants, fierce dinosaurs, wild new adventures and all-new friends, according to publisher Activision.

Offering more than six playable characters, the game allows fans to master the unique abilities and combat skills of each through continuously changing gameplay challenges. Every level presents new opportunities to defeat enemies with Sid’s spin attack, utilise Buck’s lasso to swing across treacherous landscapes, avoid obstacles as Scrat using his wall jumping and ceiling crawling abilities and escape from perilous situations flying on the back of a pterodactyl with Buck, Crash and Eddie. In addition, up to four players can share the Ice Age experience in eight competitive multiplayer mini-games.

The game is available for the Xbox 360, Wii and PS3, the PS2, Nintendo DS and PC.
