24 clocks stores

PS2 actioner based on the popular real-time television series ships in North America.

by

Jack Bauer has hand plenty of problems on television. Over the course of five seasons of the series 24, the harried federal agent has been hunted by Serbian paramilitaries, foiled an oil tycoon's plot to start a Mideast war, kicked a heroin addiction, and saved the United States from a nuclear attack--twice.

Now, Bauer will face another hectic day--this time in game-form. Today, Take-Two Interactive subsidiary 2K Games announced that it has shipped 24: The Game, the first game based on the popular TV series. Exclusive to the PlayStation 2, it retails for $39.99 and is rated M for Mature.

The game's M rating won't come as a surprise to fans of the show, which sees Bauer wage a no-holds-barred one-man war on various terrorists. Set between 24's second and third season, it follows Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland on TV and in the game, as he tries to foil a chemical attack on Los Angeles Harbor. The game also features the likenesses and voices of Sutherland's television costars Elisha Cuthbert, Carlos Bernard, and Reiko Aylesworth.

GameSpot editor Brian Ekberg recently spent the hour between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. getting some hands-on time with 24: The Game. For a complete briefing on the game, check back soon for the full review.

They should have put it on Next-Gen Consoles w/Next-Gen Graphic. Jack would have looked so cool.

I Love 24 the Show. But I probable won't get the game. Because I'm done with my PS2. And it not going to be that good.

I love the show, one of the best on tv right now, but a game I don't know. They have a good concept to go by, lets hope they didn't mess it up to bad. It's probably worth a rent, but who knows.

I'll rent it to see what it like. The show is good, but do I want to be Jack? Dunno.

Love the show, but games based on TV shows don't tend to be all that good, so I think I want to read a review or two before committing, but I must confess this is a very good looking game, especially for the technically limited PS2.

I am a fan of this show............ This game must be big(by big I mean really good) if it got it's own news story.

I watched some of the gameplay movies for this... it looks broken and downright ugly, the mechanics look all screwed up.

Hopefully, at the least, the story is strong and any technical flaws can be overlooked...can't wait to play 24!

I've played the demo, read a review of the final game and it got 8/10. It mainly criticised it for the graphics and the controls have some flaws but enjoyable overall.

Love the show ..... but am a little skeptical about the game. We'll see what the reviews have to say.

Not too exiting to play a game based on a tv series. I hate movie-to-videogame convertions. Tv-to-videogame convertions. Whatever-to-videogame convertions. Videogames should be original concepts, in my opinion.
