PSP Review - 'Ford Bold Moves Street Racing'
22 August 2009
Summary: Ford Bold Moves Street Racing moves the action from the racetrack to the streets of LA, control 3 team cars, give orders, switching on the fly, and will feature eighteen officially licensed Ford vehicles.
Excerpt: Ford: Bold Moves Street Racing is a pretty simple racer. You can select from 3 modes, quick race, career, and arcade. Quick race just dumps you into a randomly built race, and lets you go immediately from there. Career mode contains the bulk of the game. You can pick either solo or team, and go through circuit races, cups, and various challenges. Team mode is pretty neat, you can have your wingman either defend or attack, which helps you win races.
Conclusion: "Career" is where the bulk of the game time will be spent. Additional cars and tracks are unlocked from playing through the career mode's "Solo" and "Team" options. In the former, win races to earn additional credits and complete challenges to unlock access to additional cars and tracks. In the latter, the traditional race car competition is broken. Join a computer AI-controlled car to race against other teams, pairs of cars, in both competitions and challenges.
Summary: Boldly drive where every driver has driven a million times.
Pros: The intro will get you pumped if you bother to watch it; models are the highlight of the game, but the custom team commands and in-game vehicle switching is innovative and extremely fun; each vehicle has decent sound clips for close to everything you'll encounter; rumble of most vehicles will also get the blood flowing.
Cons: Locations are few; the menus will drive you insane; each level is as interactive as a coma; you'll have to rely on your own soundtrack, solo mode is almost useless, and the gameplay has nothing to offer past the three minute tutorial.
