When we first heard the name Raccoon Rising we were hoping for some sort of Dead Rising clone. You know, where you're turned loose in a shopping mall with all kinds of crazy weapons to fight off undead raccoons. Turns out it's not that. And yet even with such arbitrary and unnecessarily large shoes to fill (thanks, runaway imagination), Raccoon Rising does not disappoint.
Forget left and right. Completely overrated directions. Raccoon Rising is of the vertical variety. You'll launch your ninja raccoon back and forth between walls, dodging spikes and shooting destructible objects as you ascend. Each combination of traps presents a unique set of challenges for your mammalian friend. The tricky sections are never the ones you expect, either. It's always the deceptively simple ones that get you. Those crafty, crafty traps.
