On the right track but really lacking |
I played the game all the way through. I think it takes a great direction podracer should have taken from years ago. And I enjoyed the sometimes hostile environment to have to race through. I was disappointed that I couldn't get higher res than 1024x768 and had to make sure to manually tweak the performance effects which would have been a lot easier had there been a few automatic settings to choose from And after I started earning tech level add ons, the enemies (and all the lack of variety there of) were quite easy to control on normal. I had to start over and bump up the hardness level to present a challenge. Still, the AI left a lot to be desired. If little quips and stories are to be written about the enemies it would be nice if those personalities were translated in the game. In game taunts and better sounds would be a start.
Also, the earning points value was so high I found it no challenge to easily afford all the 'goodies'. I could not even consider this a game for a net party because I noticed there is no MULTIPLAYER! I guess big city's budget is too tight. Sorry I couldn't give a better review but I thought maybe there will be some add-ons or extra downloads to keep gameplay interesting. Did I say interesting? I meant to keep me conscious. Perhaps I'm really off as to the directed demographic for this game. I'm sure 11-13 yr. olds will whole-heartedly enjoy it for a good week or two.
