Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine is probably the most crude, and brash kart racing game on the Xbox 360, Wii, and Playstation 3. That is saying quite a lot. I can barely figure out where to start with Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine. The idea of turning a lawn mower into a racing machine is interesting. So is the recliner. But a toilet? A bomb? A bath tub? I don't need to go any further.
Excerpt: While the X-Box 360 has some excellent racing games, there aren’t many good kart racers available. Jimmie Johnson’s Anything with an Engine promises wild, madcap races, but does it deliver? This is one insane kart racer, with over the top vehicles, powerful weapons, and some wacky tracks to burn rubber on. After all, isn’t racing more fun if you’re behind the wheel of a shopping cart, coffin, or even a toilet?
Excerpt: feels like a throwback. It’s a budget cart racer with "crazy" characters, and a game that would feel right at home on the original XBOX, circa 2002. That’s not to say that it's a game devoid of value or fun. In fact, the game features some innovative mechanics; unfortunately, it’s all wrapped in a pretty bland theme.
Excerpt: Johnson may be known for scoring NASCAR championships, but Anything with an Engine breaks from the serious nature of that motorsport, delivering a budget-priced kart racer full of crazy sights, country humor, and over-the-top action. It’s all right there in the title: you can drive vehicles like a golf cart or a concrete mixer — even a toilet, dumpster, or coffin — all outfitted with wheels, a motor, and driver-specific weapons.
Pros: + Diverse and creative tracks, drivers, and weapon designs.
Cons: ? Who approved the cardboard-cutout aesthetic?
