Description

The Computer Arms Management System (CAMS) is the basic form of defense for planets against any enemy. But a terrible accident leaves an entire colony dead, and its up to a human to put an end to the out of control system.

Enter Vanessa Z. Schneider, a freelance mercenary, who has been charged with the task of bringing CAMS under control. But she has another mission in hand: revenge for CAMS destruction of her family.

Control Vanessa through the various landscapes in a 3rd person perspective, using her upgradeable abilities to destroy the CAMS, while dodging fire with a range of acrobatic moves.

Trivia

In a Sept. 08, 2003 Interview of PN03 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi by IGN, Kobayashi stated that he and his team wanted to create something "more feminine than masculine." Kobayashi further states that "we wanted her to fight as if she were dancing."

If you haven't noticed, Vanessa is constantly tapping her feet and snapping her fingers to a beat. Upon closer inspection, her rhythm is clearly not to the beat of the in-game music. Perhaps she has an i-Pod?
