Torino 2006 Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: It’s been so long since a successful Olympic game has come to market, and it looks like we’ll be waiting another two years when the summer games come around for the next attempt. What you’re getting in Torino is the ability to play through a small set of Olympic events that feel more like field day events at an elementary school.
Excerpt: There's a strange dynamic in the world of sports gaming as it pertains to the four "major sports" in the United States. It’s been widely accepted by most that, for decades, the "Four Majors" are football, baseball, basketball and hockey. Put them in whichever order you see fit, but, generally speaking, those have been the biggies in the real and virtual world. Well, about 10 years ago, something strange happened.
Excerpt: Its other merits, or lack thereof, aside, EA Sports is doing something very interesting and probably very right in its console NASCAR series. It's changing the way we look at racing. Slowly and deliberately, it's transforming competitive driving from a lonely solo sport to one that brims with interaction. It's turning us from mere drivers into owners and managers, off-track decision-makers and career-seekers.
Pros: Innovative team racing concept, Innovative voice support, Solid, reactionary artificial intelligence, Challenging yet approachable car physics, Tons of options and modes
Cons: Voice recognition system is far from perfect, Graphics look aged, especially on the PS2, Much of the game remains unchanged, Four-player online maximum is not enough
Conclusion: The visual style of NASCAR 06 is also pretty unchanged from the previous game as well. I found the car models to be much of the same as last year, I really did not see much of a difference from this game from the previous game. I must say that this isn’t all that of a bad thing as the game still looks quite good and I must say that for such a fast paced game with so much detail and so many cars I was also impressed with how well the frame rate held up as well.
Conclusion: I really enjoyed this edition of Timesplitters. The multiplayer and single player modes are both very well done. The controls are perfect, and the game boasts some great looking graphics, and some nice sounding music. This brings to one of the best games of the year. The only thing I found holding the game back from becoming a perfect score was the taking out of the Online play. This is one of the few games this year I would highly recommend to buy.
Conclusion: Die Grafik haut heutzutage absolut Niemanden mehr vom Hocker. Zwar gerät das Fahrerfeld, welches aus bis zu 42 Kontrahenten besteht, nicht ins stocken, dafür flimmern einen aber schon nach kurzer Zeit die Pupillen. Der einblendbare Rückspiegel sorgt dann mit seinen 10 Frames für ein weiteres unglaubwürdiges Staunen. Der Umfang von Nascar 06: Total Team Control stellt wohl mit das Non Plus Ultra dar.
Conclusion: Hvad har en iskold Budweiser til fælles med brede bildæk og NASCAR? Begge dele er amerikansk som bare pokker, og dyrkes med største velbehag af enhver mellemklassemand med sydstatslig accent NASCAR 2006: Total Team Control er opfølgeren til sidste års NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup. Eftersom det er et EA Sports-produkt, kunne man måske godt fristes til at tro, at det nyeste NASCAR blot er en halvkedelig overhaling af sin forgænger. Dette er dog langtfra sandt.
Pros: Fede nye tiltag, god realisme og masser af dybde.
Cons: Tungt menuinterface, dårlig stemmeaktivationssystem, underlige småfejl, gammeldags grafik
