READERS' REVIEW

The first thing you will notice about this game is that it is a Wipeout clone. The game looks very similar, and although the graphics don't match Wipeout, they are still impressive and smooth.

You race around a track in a futuristic ship, again like Wipeout, but with one major difference: the ships are all attached to a rope. This means that all you have to do is hold the accelerator down and your ship turns by itself. This leaves the other feature of the game, shooting, to improve the game. There is only one weapon to choose from - when you hit the other racers with it they slow down enough for you to overtake them.

There's an impressive introduction which I found more enjoyable than the actual game. The sound and music is poor, I turned them both off.

Visuals:    7.8
Sound:      5.9
Gameplay:   1.2
Longterm:   0.3

Don't buy this "game". Don't rent it. If you find it in the gutter it's there for a good reason, so don't pick it up.

Overall - 1.6
