Conclusion: Quantum Redshift is straight adrenaline rush…period. While the story mode with Nemesis characters is nice, it really doesn’t bring much to the table after a few times through the tournament mode. The graphics and white-knuckled gameplay certainly make up for the lackluster story mode. Single player modes are the primary draw as the multiplayer mode is pretty standard.
Conclusion: Racing Craft) windshield are ultra-realistic. It sets the standard from here on out for games that need to incorporate water effects. Quantum Redshift’s levels, SPARCs, and character models are also beautifully crafted, with vibrancy galore gracing your television set. The character models are almost on par with the heavenly creatures appearing in Dead of Alive 3. Also really top-notched are the particle effects from the SPARC’s weapons fire and engines.
Excerpt: Maybe its just me, but it seems like many reviews of late have been eyeing various popular genres for a real kick in the pants. Whether its the recycled Resident Evil survival-horror formula, the explore-and-collect formula of platformers or the dial-a-combo gameplay of fighting games, there are quite a few genres that reached their peak a few years ago and have been spinning thei wheels ever since.
Excerpt: Created of former Psygnosis members--responsible for the future racing genre benchmark Wipeout and which is now disbanded--Curly Monsters has produced an Xbox racer called Quantum Redshift. The relation to Wipeout is made obvious early on in playing- is this all these people can do? Technically beautiful yet inspirationally bland, Quantum Redshift looks good, handles well, but is dȪ? vu in total.
Excerpt: Quantum Redshift is a high speed racing game set one hundred years in the future. Sixteen pilots from around the world suit up and strap into SPARCs, or Single Person Armed Racing Craft, in hopes of winning fame, fortune, and perhaps most important, the respect of millions around the globe. Each pilot has a nemesis, a rival pilot who will stop at nothing to prevent the other from winning the championship.
Pros: Great Graphics, Incredible sense of speed, Plenty to unlock
Cons: Static backgrounds, Horrible story, We've seen all this before
Summary: "There is no other title on the Xbox that can currently produce as fast a speeds as Quantum Redshift produces, the scenery flies by and you can sometimes end up missing some of the excellent graphical effects in the game." "The main mode in Quantum Redshift is tournament mode, from here you can select one of eight opening pilots (more can be opened up later in the game if you can beat your pilots nemesis)"
Pros: Great Graphics, Good sound, The speed, the speed!!!
