  • Excerpt: I can never fail to applaud a publisher that decides to release a brand new game at a reduced price point. Having picked up Argonaut’s Carve from publisherless oblivion, Take 2 have decided to do just that, with this Xbox Live compatible title hitting the shelves at just £19.99. Usually though, there is a reason for lower prices, with the most popular one being that the quality of the game doesn’t warrant a full £40 release.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Budget releases have a stigma attached to them, causing people to assume that the reduced price somehow means the company is trying to offload a poor product. Carve is not a poor product. While it could have been a lot better, there are moments of fun in the game. The only reason I would not suggest that you at least give it a try is the abysmal turnout online at the moment.

  • Excerpt: Just in case the world needed another water-based race game, Global Star Software brings us Carve for Xbox, a competent but completely unremarkable wet-side-of-the-beach racing/trick-riding game.

  • Excerpt: Depuis Splashdown sorti en septembre 2002, le coefficient des marées est retombé à son plus bas niveau sur Xbox. Si on devait donc accueillir comme il se doit le dénommé Carve, ce dernier fera office de simple remou qui n'arriverait même pas à noyer le poisson derrière une facade technologique des plus bluffantes puisque le soft renvoie beaucoup plus aux premiers titres Xbox tant dans la forme que dans le fond.

  • Conclusion: Leider fällt es Carve von Take 2 deutlich schwer, sich gegen den schon älteren Titel Splashdown 2 durchzusetzen. Die Steuerung ist zwar leicht zu erlernen, dennoch fehlt es an echtem Fahrgefühl, wodurch kaum Spielspass entsteht. Auch mit den kleinen Cheat-Features und Trickkombos entsteht nicht das gewollte Fahrerlebnis, wodurch das Pad schneller wieder im Regal liegen bleibt als erhofft.

  • Excerpt: Carve er et nyt racerspil udviklet af Argonaut. Det falder inden for den subgenre, hvor man kører på jetski. Spillet er meget arkadeagtigt og tilbyder multiplayer i både splitscreen, link-up og via Xbox Live. Men er det godt? Find ud af det her!
