The Conduit developer High Voltage Software is making two games that share the same name. The Grinder is both a first-person shooter (on the Wii) and a top-down shooter (on everything else). This is The Grinder in motion.

This version of High Voltage's horrific shoot 'em up is more Diablo-like in its perspective, but plays more like the developer's own Hunter: The Reckoning or Marvel Ultimate Alliance. This new trailer, showing off the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 version of The Grinder, looks a bit like another Wii game, The House of the Dead: Overkill in style.

Maybe when The Grinder finally ships, sometime around Halloween 2011, we'll stop comparing it to other games and start saying that other games look like The Grinder.
