Oct 31, 2007 Blending genres is always a tricky recipe. A pinch of RPG, a dash of FPS, and a hint of... some other acronym and, voila!: You've got the tastiest game on the market... or just plain alphabet soup? Unfortunately for Sirius Games, designers of action-RPG/RTS/GTA-clone Escape from Paradise City, their genre-blending plans never quite come together into a decent meal.

On the surface, CDV's Escape from Paradise City seems like an old premise done to death, but a supernatural thread woven in and out of its polygons is enough to tweak our interest. Escape from Paradise City is an RTS-RPG in development for PC that drops you into the shoes of an NSA agent who has to go undercover to infiltrate the criminal underworld in Paradise City.
