    It thinks. Therefore it kills.

    MDK completely redefines the PC Gaming experience with graphics and gameplay never seen before in an action game. Infiltrate your way through 60 fully rendered 3-D arenas. Kill with exacting precision with the revolutionary sniper mode. Think fast and act faster against the most sophisticated artificial intelligence ever created. Fully reactive "smart enemies" think, listen and communicate in a calculated assault on your life.

    Your planet is being bulldozed by the ton. Six massive mobile mining cities, controlled by a force that nobody can stop, are strip mining the Earth's surface, over running and crushing anything in its path. Unless you can stop them.

    Unbelievable 3-D graphics, adrenaline pumping gameplay and extremely fluid movement through a massive and wide open playing environment.

    Over 50 arenas of play spread out over six cities.

    An arsenal of innovative weapons including:

    A helmet mounted sniper rifle with vision goggles which targets enemies from over two miles away.

    A polymer suit that protects from piercing projectiles.

    A high tech reusable parachute, bombs, decoys, homing sniper grenades and more.

    ONLY 2.5 BILLION PEOPLE
    WILL DIE...

    Your planet is being bulldozed by the ton. Six massive mobile cities, controlled by a force that nobody can stop, are strip mining the Earth's surface, overrunning and crushing anything that suffers the misfortune of being in their path. Unless you can stop them...

    Contributed by Jeanne (75601) on Sep 21, 2003.

From uk.playstation.com:
    Set in the future, a phenomena is discovered called 'Streams'. These are tubes of pure energy that span the galaxy. Earth taps in to this free, unlimited source of energy until an Alien stream rider arrives on earth using this newly formed ramp from hell. The aliens build vast cities that trundle across the surface of the earth destroying everything in their path.

    Meanwhile in Space, Bones the genetically altered Dog, Dr Fluke Hawkins, and Kurt have a plan which requires your help and a strong stomach . . .and which will hopefully save the Universe.
