Not many games allow you to step into the role of an insane weatherman with a God given ability to manipulate weather patterns, and rain down destruction on millions of innocent people. Indeed, as you obliterate skyscrapers with meteors, swallow whole suburbs with earthquakes, and destroy schools with hurricanes in Elements of Destruction, you really will be cackling sadistically behind your computer screen.
So if you really need to let out some pent up aggression, you can currently get your hands on Elements of Destruction for the Nintendo DS for just £3.77. This is a great price given that the next best deal comes in at £6.89 from Sendit.
The story behind Elements of Destruction basically consists of a recently fired weatherman who, in order to get back at his old employers and the world in general, exacts revenge using his ability to control weather. The idea is to unleash the fury of Mother Nature upon the unfortunate residents of the Weatherman’s city and basically kill as many people as possible within the given time limit.
Despite what you might think the game is actually quite light hearted and also very challenging. As the levels progress you find that it takes several goes to progress through each stage and, given there’s a tight time limit before the good guys arrive and spoil the fun, there's a need to be quite tactical. One the downside the graphics and sound are not really up to much which is a bit of a let down. Had the developers upped their game and made Elements of Destruction a bit better visually, the game would have been hailed as a masterpiece.
