Rise to Honor

Inspired by the excitement and cinematic styling of the Hong Kong action movie genre, Rise to Honor is a fast-paced action game developed exclusively for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Created by Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Foster City Studio in collaboration with worldwide action star Jet Li (Cradle 2 The Grave, The One, Kiss of the Dragon, Lethal Weapon 4), Rise to Honor will immerse players into an action packed story line centered around family, deceit and honor in a chain of dangerous events extending from Hong Kong to San Francisco.

Using motion capture technology to incorporate Jet Li’s signature moves, Rise to Honor adds a new level of realism and authenticity into the action genre. Rise to Honor lets gamers simultaneously battle multiple enemies through a multi-faceted fight system. Players will utilize hand-to-hand moves, weapon based attacks and interactive objects to defeat enemies.

Rise to Honor engrosses gamers in the story of Kit Yun (Jet Li) who is the trusted bodyguard of Boss Chiang, the leader of one of Hong Kong’s notorious crime gangs. As Chiang is assassinated, he whispers his dying wish to Kit…to deliver an important message to Chiang’s estranged daughter Michelle in San Francisco. By fulfilling Chiang’s wish, Kit becomes entangled in a web of alliances and hidden agendas that unveil a great struggle between his sense of duty and honor
