Time Crisis: Razing Storm, known in Japan as Big 3 Gun Shooting (ビッグスリー ガンシューティング Biggusurī Ganshūtingu ), is a compilation of light gun rail shooter video games by Namco for the PlayStation 3 home console. Featuring full compatibility with both the GunCon 3 light gun and the PlayStation Move motion control system, the compilation consists of ports of various arcade games. Developed by Nex Entertainment and published by Namco Bandai Games, the compilation was released in North America on October 19, 2010 and in Japan on October 21, 2010 which is the launch date of the PlayStation Move in Japan. It will also be released as part of a bundle with the PlayStation Move, PlayStation Eye and the Shooting attachment for the PlayStation Move in Japan and other Asian countries such as Singapore.
The compilation features the ports of three arcade games, namely:
- Razing Storm
- A spin-off of the Time Crisis series, the game takes place in a massively destructible environment in a South American country under a bloody revolution. Players, who fight futuristic terrorists and renegade soldiers, represent members of a special-forces unit called S.C.A.R. (Strategic Combat and Rescue), sent to capture the leader of the rebels, who masterminded an attack on the United States. The First Person Shooting Mode wraps up the cliffhanger from the arcade edition of the game and fills in some of the game's plot holes.
- Time Crisis 4
- A re-release of the fourth game in the Time Crisis series without the FPS mode, the game follows Military Intelligence Official William Rush in a mission to stop terrorists from utilizing biological insect-like weapons and any hidden agendas they may have.
- Deadstorm Pirates
A rail shooter game similar to the Sega arcade series, Let's Go Jungle! where the player is given unlimited bullets and a navigation system. The story details the Pirate's attempt to find Poseidon's Breath, a mighty Treasure Galleon with an extremely valuable trinket.
The compilation supports both the GunCon 3 light gun and the PlayStation Move motion controller system as well as vibration feedback and PlayStation Eye AV Chat.
In addition to the original arcade mode, new gameplay modes in Time Crisis: Razing Storm include a sentry mode, a story mode, and an online battle mode. In sentry mode, up to four players take turns trying achieve a high score by stopping prisoners from escaping in the penitentiary riot scenario. Story mode and online battle mode both feature a new first person shooter-style navigation, in which the player can freely navigate the environment "off the rails". In online battle mode, up to 8 online players can play together in any of a number of battle modes.
In addition to PlayStation Move support, Time Crisis 4: Arcade Ver. (based on the Arcade Mode from the 2007 PlayStation 3 release of Time Crisis 4) and Deadstorm Pirates both feature online ranking, and support 1-2 players.
