Excerpt: Black Ops II promised DLC would be coming and Revolution is the first one available. This first DLC drop seems to have all the bases covered; there should be something for anyone who plays Black Ops II . For one, you get the Peacekeeper SMG as a new bonus weapon, along with the expected suite of challenges for the weapons and the XP to be gained from completing those challenges.
Excerpt: Infogrames and Atari bring us a title that gives Wave Race: Blue Storm a real run for its money. Splashdown features stunning visuals, lots of well-designed courses, and plenty of gameplay to keep you running those waves well into the next year. Fans of racers and watersports, click!
Conclusion: clearly laid by extreme sports such as SSX Tricky, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, etc. why make the stats untouchable? Part of the reason must be the deftly incorporated trick system. Each successful trick rewards your racer with a small efficiency boost, which allows you to go just a little bit faster. (It doesn’t affect handling though.) Perform enough tricks and your boost meter fills up to give you even more of a speed advantage.
Excerpt: It isn't whether you win or lose, but how phat was the trick you pulled. Welcome to Splashdown, SS Tricky on water- a game where losing isn't so bad if the air you got while performing the Kiss of Death keeps mouths dropped after watching the replay of your record-setting run. Unfortunately this style of game will forever draw comparisons to the Wave Race series, but even so, Rainbow Studio's racer is done extremely well.
Excerpt: Well, even though this game is on X-Box, it is, as I stated before, a port of a PS2 game. I think that you can really see the technical limitations of the oldest of the three current generation systems in this game. The draw-in distance is terrible here, sometimes reminding me of games on the N64, where one second there is nothing on screen, and then bam, something appears out of nowhere.
Conclusion: Gut gelungen ist auch der einfache Einstieg ins Rennvergnügen mit drei ausbalancierten Schwierigkeitsstufen, bei denen für jede Fähigkeit etwas dabei sein sollte. Zwar fordert die Gegner-KI den Spieler nur bedingt, denn "richtiges Reagieren" auf Situationen kann man ihr eher nicht unterstellen, doch nur wer genau darauf achtet merkt, dass die Fahrer einer inneren Streckenführung folgen und sich nur wenig am Verhalten der Konkurrenz orientieren.
Excerpt: Alors que l'hiver approche à grands pas, Rainbow Studios nous invite à remettre nos maillots de bain et d'aller se défouler au guidon de Sea-Doo sur des étendues d'eau aux quatre coins du globe. Y a pire comme invitation...
