Review: Wheels of Destruction - World Tour (Sony PS3)

Diehard GameFAN
21 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Games like Twisted Metal are already a far step ahead because right out of the box, it includes a full, story driven single player campaign. Wheels of Destruction’s single player amounts to little more than a handful of what are essentially tutorials against braindead AI drivers on the same five arena style maps used in the multiplayer, using the three different match types.

Review: Wheels of Destruction: World Tour

  • Conclusion: Overall, Wheels of Destruction falls short of its mark. The concept behind it was sound but the game failed in execution. On one hand, you have a strong graphics engine and wonderfully crafted levels, but on the other, you have an extremely limited game with only two viable game modes, subpar controls, lag issues and a poorly timed launch, all of which contribute heavily to a negative outlook on the game.

Expert Review

  • Summary: Contrary to popular belief, a car's sole purpose is not just to shuttle its passengers around town. That mundane task makes up only a small portion of a car's potential. Outfit a four-wheeled vehicle with a bevy of ready-to-kill firearms and a sturdy protective shell, and you've got yourself a source of destructive entertainment that would make Henry Ford faint with delight.
  • Pros: Well-designed maps
  • Cons: Dearth of single-player content, Online suffers from lots of lag

  • Conclusion: All-in-all, the game can be a lot of fun, but basic gameplay controls and mechanics stifle its ability to really make a lasting impact on you other than one of untimely-rage quitting and frustration.

Wheels of Destruction: World Tour

30 June 2013
  • Summary: Na Wheels of Destruction: World Tour se dobře dívá, ale to je tak vše. Hratelnost je daleko za očekávání, rozhodně nepotěší malá nabídka map ani pouze tři naprosto klasické a dneska už trochu ohrané herní režimy. U hry, která je zaměřená převážně na multiplayer, je toto docela problém. Nechci malovat čerta na zeď, ale nedokážu si představit, že tuto hru bude někdo za pár týdnů hrát, když už nyní servery zejí prázdnotou, a to je několik dnů po vydání.

Review: "Wheels of Destruction: World Tour" (PS3)

15 May 2012
  • Excerpt: “Vigilante 8" damals und “Blur” oder das Remake von “Twisted Metal” heute: Car-Combat Spiele waren schon immer ein Garant für stundenlangen Multiplayerspaß. Vielen Gamern war ein Vollpreistitel aus diesem Genre für bloßen Multiplayer Spaß mit Freunden aber oft zu teuer. Mit „Wheels Of Destruction“ will man eine billigere Alternative anbieten. Ob dieser Schuß nach hinten losgeht, oder das Spiel echt mit den Größen des Genres mithalten kann, lesen Sie im folgenden Review.
  • Pros: Deinstallierbar
  • Cons: schreckliche Grafik, kaum Fahrezeuge, mickrige Auswahl an Arenen, zu wenige Spielmodi, unbegreiflich schlechte Steuerung, eine Farce auf 4 Rädern, monotone Umgebungen, wenig Waffen, dumme Gegner KI bei Single Player

Wheels of Destruction : World Tour

4 April 2012
  • Summary: On pourrait résumer en deux mots : mission accomplie ! Nous avons là un jeu sans défaut majeur, qui offre ce qu’il voulait offrir aux joueurs mais qui malheureusement ne va pas au delà. Pour les amateurs du genre et de jeu en ligne son petit prix sera un sérieux argument à condition de ne pas avoir déjà succombé à un certain Twisted Metal.
  • Pros: Son prix, Fun
  • Cons: Peu de modes en multi, Pas d'écran splitté, Mode de direction
