Game description: The year is 2103 and Mars needs your help. As E.Z. Wheeler, a biomechanically enhanced soldier, you'll fight a one-man war against aliens who have captured your Mars colony. Plunge into battle on the Red Planet armed with deadly alien weapons, your own superpowers, and a digital sidekick named Iris. Fight your way across the frozen deserts, through Earth's ruined colony, and into the exotic interiors of alien ships in ten single-player and four- multiplayer levels. On the farthest frontiers of space,it's your mission to exterminate the brutal aliens before they attack Earth.
Aliens of unknown origin, known simply as LEDs (Light-Emitting Demons) launch an attack on Earth, resulting in heavy casualties on both sides. Earth comes out of the fighting victorious, but advanced US intelligence discovers that the LEDs have invaded Earth's colony on Mars. Believing that the LEDs intend to launch another attack on Earth, but unsure how to deal with the problem, the US army chief decides to send in an RTX (Radical Tactics Expert) to properly evaluate the situation.
This brings him to Major Wheeler. Wheeler undertakes the mission, despite his fear of Mars and goes off along with his robotic sidekick IRIS.
