Other Ocean Interactive's latest War of the World videogame has received the Bitbag's Best of E3 Award for the best 2D game.

The new videogame has been developed by the company's own creative team and will be available on both Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network later this year.

X-Men star, Sir Patrick Stewart has been signed as the official narrator of the side-scroller.

The brand new videogame by the company is based on the popular Hollywood 1953 flick and the 1898 H.G. Wells' novel of the same name.

The more I hear about the forth-coming side-scroller The War of the Worlds, the more I want to play it. For a downloadable XBLA and PSN title, Other Ocean Interactive appears to be pulling out all the stops, states Stewart.

The new videogame narrates the story of a person's experience during a 1950 alien invasion of London. It is a description of how the person attempts to save his family from the invaders.
