Ron Rifkin plays Sloane (the bad guy!); Victor Garber plays Jack Bristow (Sydney's father - Victor Garber was also the bloke who built The Titanic in the film, by the way!); Carl Lumbly plays Dixon (Sydney's CIA partner); and David Anders plays the evil Sark. As well as the main cast we have brought back Anna Espinosa, Sydney's nemesis from season one.
The creators of the TV show were really supportive in making the game - we flew over to LA and visited the set of the show and met JJ Abrams (the creator of Alias) and Jesse Alexander (executive producer).
From there we had a great relationship with the Alias team where we worked closely to make a game that suited the TV show and where the TV show was heading and also fitted the mission designs we had. The script was written by the script-writers of the show for authenticity.
On top of that Michael Giaccino, the composer for the TV show, wrote the music for the game. We hope that fans of the show will feel they're really playing an episode of Alias, and with top Hollywood talent penning the script for the show even if you've never heard of Alias we still think there's a great story to be experienced!
Obviously the game is going to appeal to fans of the TV series, but what else, aside from, y'know, Jennifer Garner in a leather catsuit, does Alias offer that other gamers should be frothing at the mouth about?
Harper: Well we've mentioned the combat and improvised weaponry, and the split-screens, and the gadgets, and the storyline - I think it's really a sum of all the parts that makes Alias so exciting. If you take any one element on its own the team has achieved a lot, but when you see it all together it's a great experience and I think everyone has their favourite bit.
From Sydney using a broom to spread a bad guys legs and then take out the family jewels; to kicking a drinks machine, grabbing a can and lobbing it at a car to set off the alarm to attract the guards; to following Sark around dingy corridors hoping he won't see you while you watch his reactions in the split-screen.
To bravely running into a firefight, disarming a guard and then shooting him and his friends with the remaining ammo; to lock-picking handcuffs when tied with Marshall to a nuclear bomb before hacking the computer to disarm it before it blows everyone sky high - it's the TV show and more in a game! We hope you like it!
Alias is released on PS2 and Xbox on April 9, with a PC version to follow in May.
