In MDK2 (available for the PC and for the Dreamcast) you alternately play as a superhero janitor, a six legged gun-toting dog and an "eccentric" scientist as they battle the alien horde, headed by a shades-wearing, 100-foot-tall creature who purrs "Who's your daddy?" as he flicks you into the void with his fingertip.
The goal of the modern PC shooter seems to be to give the user the feeling of what it's really like to go on a killing spree. With the success of Quake and its 3-D engine, which lets players roam through a monochromatic universe killing soldiers, cartoony shooters like Duke Nukem 3D and Blood disappeared. Since then, only kid-oriented fare such as Earthworm Jim 3D and Rayman 2 has had the silly touch. The current state of games is represented by Soldier of Fortune, where you can shoot a man in the hand, head or crotch, and Tomb Raider 4, where elegant shadowing effects are as impressive as the heroine's outsize bust. But now Interplay brings us Bioware's MDK2, a very silly shooter for adults.
