Fourteen Point Punch!
Barmy games department! This is Metal Wolf Chaos, a 2004 third-person action satire for the original Xbox, released exclusively in Japan. Players assume the role of President Michael Wilson, a descendant of 28th President of the United States Woodrow Wilson. Threatened with a coup d'etat spearheaded by his dickish VP, this Wilson puts aside idealistic Presbyterian politics and clambers into a suit of missile-spewing robot power armour. Win back hearts and minds by reducing your country to rubble! It's the diplomacy of the future! Add in wailing guitar riffs, a space set surfing sequence, and a White House boss encounter in which the building is outfitted with a future-shock combat coating and you've a game that begs for a wider re-release /HD remix. "Believe your justice!"
