I don't know what interested me in renting this game, but I liked such games as Mashed for the retro consoles so I thought this might be the next best thing. How wrong could I have been, and what a laughable storyline! I don't want to be too harsh on the game, as it has some great destroyable landscape and the weapon systems aren't too bad. It's just not worth playing. I wanted the full game to be consistant in meeting my needs as a gamer, but as aesthetically pleasing it is to destroy buildings and the such - I wanted an all round 'phwoar' factor but it never arrived. You had to try each map several times to learn the short cuts in order to win, it was never about outwitting the enemy or shooting enough holes in them to cause a crash - it was just about where the right turns should be made and it was a textbook finish.
If you really REALLY want to rent this game then do so expecting nothing special. If your feeling uncertain about what to rent next, look elsewhere because this will just disappoint.
Fast paced, dramatic shooter.
The first thing i really noticed about this game was how fast it was, things around you seem to blur as you pass them. Graphics and gameplay are of a similair style to burnout.
The game is great for stress releif and apears at first to be quite varied due to different missions, although most seem to pretty much have the same idea, shoot drive and don't crash. I can imagine that the lastability of this game may be short because of this.
In terms of difficulty, i found this game very challenging. By the 3rd level i was having to repeat races because of failing, i'm usualy the master of race games (as i am in real life).
The thing that makes this game really hard is the fact that it is so fast that as soon as you see something you have hit it. You drive more by remembering where things are instead of reacting to them.
rent it first before you buy.
This is a great game but you would really have to be into it to make it last more than a month before you got bored.
