hile on the surface it may appear to be a Nazi-free retelling of Disney's The Rocketeer, Capcom's latest sci-fi action title, Dark Void, is treading a path that's all its own. Fight an alien menace this week on your choice of PS3, PC or 360.

While the series has a long history in Japan, this title marks its North American debut.
