You will have the chance to journey through one thousand years of legend as Goliath, the leader of the Gargoyles. Stone by day but warriors by night, they are sworn to protect against the evil Eye of Odin and all those who desire to use its immense powers to control the world.
In your quest to smash the Eye of Odin to pieces before it destroys the world, you will be challenged to battle armies of Viking Warriors in ancient Scotland and smash menacing robots in modern-day Manhattan.
