Excerpt: Vampires may rule TV and movies these days, but games are under the domination of zombies. Either the undead are really popular with gamers or developers find it particularly easy to program zombie AI. Blood Drive hopes for the former while taking advantage of the latter in combining vehicular demolition derby style combat with the mass killing of zombies.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is I’m a bit amazed at myself for sitting through and playing Blood Drive – mainly because anyone else who tries this game out will want to drive over the game disc in agony. Blood Drive is a ridiculous game that has no real weight to it, thanks in part to its flimsy controls and boring gameplay.
Excerpt: Blood Drive is the video game equivalent to a Syfy original movie. It's made from two marketable concepts crammed into a low-grade production and completely misses the point of what made the originals appealing in the first place. Zombies. Car-combat. I like them both, and while mixing the two isn't an inherently bad idea, you can't slap the two together and expect a romance.
Summary: Sidhe Interactive’s Blood Drive welcomes players to Las Rulettas, a fictional Las Vegas-inspired setting for a vehicular homicide reality show that shares the game’s name. Bonus: Blood Drive ’s arenas are littered with the undead, who contestants can plow into, for splattering gore all over the screen, but also for scoring points.
You’ll Deserve A Cookie After Putting Up With This Blood Drive
17 November 2010
Conclusion: Concept: Take the Twisted Metal car combat concept and add zombies
Graphics: We’ve seen worse this generation, but Blood Drive still looks like a budget title
Sound: The music is generic and the voice acting is grating, but the classical music that plays during the pause menu is incredibly amusing
Playability: The controls are too slippery to be accurate, but there are so many zombies scattered across the field that it almost doesn’t matter
Entertainment: If you enjoy...
Excerpt: Alweer loopt een week ten einde. En alweer mogen we een game waarin zombies een hoofdrol spelen bespreken. Waar deze fascinatie rond de ondoden toch vandaan komt blijft een raadsel. Velen argumenteren dat mensen zich vandaag de dag op morbide wijze aangetrokken voelen tot de dood (misschien ligt het aan de feestdagen?). Persoonlijk denk ik niet dat dergelijke vooronderstelling het correcte antwoord is.
