This one looks really fun. It reminds everybody of Mario Kart what with all the power-ups.

I would consider it if it weren't for the fact that it's a racing game. Besides, not enough people end up getting these XBL Marketplace games to ever do something really fun.

Racing Games are awesome. Well, some are. As long as they have that arcade style control, which this one does.

And this is not a XBLA game. It's a retail game that will be on store shelves. If that's what you meant by, "XBL marketplace games".

Oh? It doesn't look like the kind of quality you'd see in a retail game...

Is it full-priced?

Yes, of course it's full price. It is a retail game afterall.

Does it really look that low of quality to you? If so, I don't see it. What I do see however is a fun and pretty looking game.

Idk... it looks like some awfully simple models for the games of today... and it's not an incredibly complicated or even original concept...

Frankly, from what I've seen, the only reason I'd buy it is if a bunch of other people I play wit buy it and it was $15 or less.

Racing games tend to be so unoriginal, though... idk... I doubt it's something I'd get interested in. I've barely been able to get into even Mario Kart. I mean, to me, racing games are just to simple... no variety... just one tactic; one way to win.... and it apply to almost all racing games. Maybe some people find enjoyment in racing games, but I don't.

Well if you don't like racing games Civ then that's fine. I don't really like RPG's. Games don't have to be complicated or be so original to be a good one. Surely you know this.

But one thing I will say is that it sounds like your argument can be applied to almost any game genre. FPS = shoot them to win. RPG = level up to win. Music/Rythem = Play the beat or notes correctly when told to to win. Platformer = get to the end of the stage to win. Yes many game do get to the end/win differently but it reality it's the same goal but yes I agree, not the same game. Which is what makes game these days stand out.

So to me, that's not a very good reason to dislike racing games. But Like I said, if you don't like'em then you just don't like'em. I probably could'nt tell you why I don't really like RPG's, I just don't.

...wait what where we talking about? Razz

Uhhh

Even if there is one main goal, they have different ways to acomplish them. Racing games usually don't, mario kart does, but even still who really plays the other game modes?

I think lack of replaybility is a fine reason to not like a game.

Yes and I already said that in my post. But with racing games what more can you do? If you change it up to much then it's not a racing game then is it?

Racing can be just considered a basic mode in a racing game. Just look at Burnout for example. Racing is like the most basic mode they have. There's many more modes that they have to play in there. Does this game have that? I'm not sure yet but I know it does have more then one mode then just simple racing. And hopefully, the power-ups can even change up those modes a little.

And yes I agree lack of replayability is a great reason to not like a game. I sometimes base a purchase of a game on that too.

Well

I can think of a few ideas for a racing game...

I think Simpsons Road Rage was a great "racing game" (more of a car game really...)

Actually, there's quite a bit you can do with racing games... they just don't do them. Look at games like JSRF or even Sonic.

Racing, music, and sports games... I feel like once I own one or two, I have them all.

But in other games, there are multiple ways to go about winning, even if the goal is always the same. I suppose sports is like that too, but not music and racing.

If racing games is what were talking about here, they do that too.

Example: Burnout Paradise. When you race, you can either take the basic way and do noting else to get there or there is multiple shortcuts and ways to get to the finnish. And even then you can takedown others players or force them to crash into something.
Same goal, multiple ways of acomplishing.

There's one game mode that I like that is called Cops and Robbers. Some people are cops some are robbers. The cops need to get the gold that's in the open city before the robbers do and take it back to your HQ. And vice-versa.

Now correct me if I'm wrong Civ but your trying to say that all racing games are the same. And I just want to make the point, that is not necessarily true.

Yeah this game looks pretty good, but I just dont understand why youre so excited for it, Rock. Haha. I dont think I'll buy it, considering there are better racing games AND I already own Mario Kart Wii (which is probably far superior and has more personality).

You know I get the feeling you guys think I'm waiting in a tent outside GameStop right now waiting for the game. No, that is not the case. I just think the game looks good. A racing game that looks to finally take some gameplay style from my fav racer Mario Kart. Sign me up.

Plus, it's also the fact that I'm getting sick and tired of just playing shooters all day. So I need someting new. And I like racing games so, why not? I probably won't buy it day one or anything I just thought it was a good looking game.

We've gone over this so much Tyfighter. Our gaming agenda is plaqued with shooters. Well, mine is. At least you have your Wii. All I have is my RTS's and Racers and I can't even have any hype for a racer says the people here on TCF. Razz jk.

You can have some hype.


But like you said, it takes gameplay style from Mario Kart. This just looks like a glorified mario kart.

Oh okay that was just a joke, no need to get semi-defensive on me.


I suppose you didn't, but now i'll question why you would want another racing game just like Mario Kart when you already own mario kart.

I would question you that, but it doesn't matter, so don't answer it.
