Metal Wolf Chaos is a third-person shooter video game for the Microsoft Xbox that was released only in Japan. It was developed by From Software, who are responsible for Chromehounds and the Armored Core series of mecha games.
The game revolves around a fictitious President of the United States named Michael Wilson. Using a suit of powered armor named Metal Wolf, he battles forces who have taken over his country in a coup d'état, including his arch nemesis, Vice President Richard Hawk.
Unlike most games that are released exclusive to Japan, Metal Wolf Chaos has full English voice acting.
Michael Wilson is the President of The United States, a relative of some kind of Woodrow Wilson as a parallel to the real life presidency of George W. Bush of the time of the game's release. Vice President Richard Hawk (a play on the term War Hawk, and possibly a parody of Dick Cheney's influence) decides to usurp Wilson's presidency, shifts the armed forces' loyalty to him and attacks Wilson with their support.
However, Wilson escapes from the White House in his powered armor, and after reaching Air Force One flies to the west coast of the United States. He then starts to take America back by liberating cities and outposts going from west to east.
When Wilson returns to the White House, Hawk isn't there. Wilson discovers that he's in Las Vegas and goes there to fight his usurper, but he escapes in a rocket and goes to a space station. Wilson and Hawk battle in space, with the President ultimately saving the United States of America from nuclear destruction and destroying his enemy.
