Conclusion: While it may sound like Scrap Metal is one to avoid, there is entertainment to found here. The 4-player split screen multiplayer mode functions well enough as a post-pub blast and playing online can be quite fun (though limiting the games to four human players and filling the rest of the slots with...
Summary: Scrap Metal combines Twisted Metal with RC cars in this top-down, arcade-style racer. Multiplayer is a gas, although there's less excitement to be found in the game's surprisingly lengthy single-player mode.
Pros: Easy to pick up and play., Enjoyably chaotic multiplayer., The mayhem is still family-friendly
Summary: Games like Scrap Metal aren't nearly as common as they used to be. Many modern racing games focus so completely on realism that even with hundreds of licensed vehicles on their rosters, there's no room for vans equipped with rocket launchers, muscle cars that come with four machine guns as standard,...
Pros: Varied single-player challenges, Multiplayer King of the Hill is a lot of fun
Cons: Difficulty curve is all over the place, You unlock 20 vehicles but have only four garage spots, AI opponents aren't always convincing
Excerpt: It’s hard to shine in the scrapheap It doesn’t matter about the size of your engine, the top speed or the size of the smile on the Michelin Man gracing your tyres, stick a gun on any vehicle and it’ll be enough to shut up Jeremy Clarkson and give The Stig something to say at the same time.
Pros: Good variety of events to take part it, Simple and fun controls make races frantic
Cons: Courses aren’t aesthetically pleasing or majorly interesting, Only 4 out of 20 vehicles can be held the same time, gets repetitive incredibly quickly
Conclusion: The second instalment in the Xbox Live Arcade “Block party” promotion is Scrap Metal, a top down racer that sits between Toy Soldiers new take on Tower Defence and the nostalgic revamp of Perfect Dark.
Conclusion: Ilmassa on luoteja ja terästä, kun Scrap Metal in kisailijat ottavat mittaa toisistaan. Kentällä toisiaan jahtaavat mm. jäätelö- ja poliisiautot, kauhakuormaajat, traktorit ja vähän tavanomaisemmatkin kilpurit.
Pros: Hauskat kilpailut ja romurallit, ok ohjaus, pätevä moninpeli
Conclusion: En genre som nästan helt har försvunnit är så kallade top down-racers. Äldre spelare kanske minns klassiker som Sprint Race eller Super Off-Road, eller har åtminstone hört talas om RC Pro-Am till NES.
Pros: Bra multiplayer-stöd, medryckande musik, många varierade bilar
Cons: Seg spelkontroll, gräslig design, vissa dåliga spellägen
