Grayson Hunt isn't your average, run-of-the-mill, peace-loving space pirate. He's the kind of space pirate who once headed up the known universe's deadliest black-ops squad, has a half-billion credit price on his head, and likes to shoot bottles off the heads of prisoners while drunk. He's a nice guy. Since you can't be an infamous space pirate without a heart of gold, know that Hunt went the space-pirate route when he discovered his black-ops squad was assassinating innocents to cover up corruption and carry out the vendettas of the galaxy's elite. Mad at his former handler, General Sarrano, Hunt smashes his tiny vessel into Sarrano's flagship, crashing both on the resort world Stygia, where the natives are out of control and radiation rains from the sky.

Who names a resort world "Stygia?" That's just asking for trouble.

Chime Super Deluxe Publisher: Zoe Mode Entertainment

Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC
Reviewed on PlayStation 3

Chime was originally released more than a year ago on the PC, and it reached Xbox Live Arcade later last year. It may have taken a while for Chime to find its way to the PlayStation 3, but the version that is now downloadable from the PlayStation Network is more polished, more detailed and has even more content than the versions originally released on other platforms.
