ExZeus2, sequel of the acclaimed fast paced 3D Shooting Game "ExZeus".


2217 CE. Over one century has passed since the battle against the alien war machines. Earth has returned to peace and the name of Diadora is now nothing more than a dim memory. Not many remember the ExZeus project and the robots who saved the planet from darkness. But a new menace from above was about to break the peace. There was only one way to counter this menace and restore hope: reopen the "ExZeus" project. The 3 former metal warriors who saved our planet were thus fused to give birth to a new powerful model of robot, Minos.
