Excerpt: for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The last time a Sega Rally title released stateside it was for the Dreamcast and while the graphics are amazing, little else has changed and that creates a problem particularly in respect to longevity. There's nothing new to see here, really, so I wouldn't recommend the game unless you're a racing addict or a big fan of the series.
Conclusion: At the end of the day SEGA Rally Revo just doesn't hold a candle to the big boys. It's not going to take down Motorstorm, Dirt, Project Gotham, Need for Speed, or Gran Turismo; though I suppose it doesn�t have to. What Rally Revo does well is create an arcade experience that rivals what you'd expect if you walked into a sweaty pit with quarters in hand. It's a visceral racing title that takes the genre back to its roots but it in no way pushes the envelope.
Conclusion: This is old school racing at its finest that will definitely breath new life into series. It doesn’t have all the flash or options that DiRT offers, but it’s clear that Sega was not trying to go head-to-head with the other racers, by instead focusing on the arcade aspect. Though both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are fun, the winner of this round has to be the Xbox 360, simply because it takes full advantage of the GeoDeformation process with rumble.
Excerpt: Sega Rally Championship 2 for the Dreamcast was the last time North America saw a release of a Sega Rally game, back in 1999. Now, eight years later, the franchise is back in Sega Rally Revo for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and you may be shocked by how little things have changed. Sure, the technology has leapt over a skyscraper or two, but when it comes down to the fundamental arcade style of driving that this series was known for, Revo is like a visit from the past.
Pros: Tracks deform and tear up to an amazing degree, Fantastic-looking cars and tracks, Lots of different cars to unlock
Cons: Gameplay is a bit on the shallow side, Computer opponents are rather single-minded, Could have used more tracks, Lack of rumble with the Sixaxis controller is a big hindrance
Excerpt: Product Description SEGA Rally® Revo reinvigorates and revolutionizes the genre-defining off-road racing brand with an all-new track deformation system. With this proprietary new technology, players must quickly react to unexpected changes in track conditions on muddy, snow-filled, gravel-covered courses while gunning it at full throttle in their chosen world-renowned, officially licensed rally vehicle. Advanced A.I.
Conclusion: The All-Star baseball series has never been one of the better looking baseball titles on the market. When compared to Sega’s and EA’s baseball titles, All-Star just always seems to be a year behind in the visual department, and this year is all of the same. The character models have been improved from last year’s edition of the game but not by much.
Conclusion: There are some 30-odd rally cars on offer throughout including favourites like the Subaru Impreza WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX and Peugeot 207 among many, many more and as the name suggests, Modified mode will give you special modified versions of all of these (funny that). What makes this feature so appealing is in the face of such a bare-bones game structure, there is still a lot to master here giving the game plenty of overall life and something even car nuts can...
Summary: Beautiful cars and environments but a lot of details that would have added tons to the immersion factor have been left out. Awesome and really well done, takes full advantage of surround sound systems one of the better sounding PS3 games out there. Fun arcade physics, unfortunately not much has changed since the original Sega Rally. You really need a force feedback wheel to get the most out of this.
Summary: Weten jullie nog, kinders? Die gouwe ouwe tijd van 8 en 16-bit? Waarin muziek bestond uit niets meer dan bliepjes en bloepjes en je werkelijk de pixels op je scherm kon tellen? Waarin de games vaak redelijk simpel waren, maar tegelijkertijd ook weer uitdagend en vaak zelfs bikkelmoeilijk. De nostalgie en mijn verlangen naar die tijd is weer volledig boven komen drijven met de release van Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, een game waar de retro vanaf druipt.
Pros: Audiovisueel geweldig, Humor is top, Game speelt goed weg, Goede replaywaarde, Multiplayer is lekker hectisch, Heeft me fan gemaakt van Scott Pilgrim
Cons: Controls zitten elkaar soms in de weg, Geen online multiplayer, Wisselvallige moeilijkheidsgraad, Je moet er van houden
