So here we are at the end of June, with a couple more demos for your viewing pleasure:
A slick visualed title, one of the bigger series in the racing genre, Ridgeracer has been around for quite some time. So when I initially started up the game and watched the intro cinematic I was really pumped to play it. The game takes the graphics of say Forza or Project Gotham and combines it with the action and intensity of Burnout and Need for Speed.
- Destructible Environments
- High speed demolition racing
- Outstanding Graphics
- Weak controls
- Lack of rubber band racing physics
Overall it’s not an entirely bad game, and I’m sure with more practice I could get used to how to work power slides and overtaking the opposing players, but I don’t think you should have to really practice to be able to good at the base level. On the bigger plus side, this newest installment of Ridgeracer features an insane track builder that is completely easy to use, but you only really get to preview it in the demo. So if arcade style racing with no true realism is your thing, then Unbounded might be right up your alley. At least until Most Wanted gets released.
The newest LEGO title has arrived! Batman 2: DC Superheroes stays true to the whole LEGO concept, but it loses me on the puzzles. Maybe I’m just bad or maybe it’s the visuals but when it comes to solving the jump puzzles of this game, I’m done. I did, however, like the music and character design. Totally a throw back to the 60s Batman as well as the FOX series. So they nailed it there.
- Easy to swap to your favorite character
- Neat concepts with costumes and powers
- All your favorite DC comic heroes
- Slightly unintuitive puzzles
- Repetitive gameplay
So if you’re a big fan of the whole LEGO concept and loved the original Batman, then this sequel will deliver exactly what you’re looking for!
Stay tuned and don’t touch that dial!
