Mario Kart On Crack : Kart Rider Open To The Public
Mon, 07 May 2007 06:10:05 +0000
Nexon have just released Kart Rider from beta testing. Kart rider is an online kart racing game much like Mario Kart from back in the day. If you don’t have many hours of time to waste I suggest you stop reading right now as this game may just waste your day as it did mine.
Nexon are the people responsible for Maple Story another very large and popular online game. If you like Maple Story then I’m pretty confident that you will love Kart Rider.
Kart rider is a multilayer online kart racing game that is just like Mario Kart but allot more fun in my opinion. The online aspect of the game makes it so much more fun. For all the fans of Mario Kart that always wanted an online version, your pares have been answered.
The graphics of the game are much like Mario Kart in the fact they have a very “cartoony” look to them and I think that just adds to the fun factor when playing this game. It makes you feel like a kid just running riot with a kart and a heap of your friends. There are always people online to play with and are always happy to help the not so experienced players out if you ask nicely.
This game has almost unlimited upgrade option for your Kart and character. I have not got too far into the upgrade process but it seems like it is almost endless with all the option available to upgrade you character and your kart.
Though this game has not been around for very long it seems to have a very large following already and all the people that I have told about the game have not stopped playing it.
There is a very large selection of different race type’s to choose from and all have different goals but as always the main goal is to come first. There are also team based races where you and your team need to work together to try and defeat the other team. This is where tactics come into play as you will need to use all of your skill to you knock the other team out of the race.
This guy has skillz
As with Mario Kart, while you race along you will pick up weapons that you can use to slow down the opposition with things like, reverse the controls of the person in front of you, banana peels scatted across the track that will make you kart spin around among hundreds of other very handy and also very frustrating options.
Now for the most important part of the whole thing, this game is 100% free, yes I said free. I’m not a big fan of the online flash games that are all over the internet these days but this game takes that to a whole new level with excellent graphics and game as well as a great community.
If you liked Mario Kart then I think you would have to out of your mind not to give this game ago and did I mention it is free. To be part of the fun all you need to do is go to Nexon’s website create an account, download the 180Mb file and you are good to go.
There is only one thing that I found slightly irritating about this game and that is that the website is only compatible with Internet Explorer and for me a Firefox fan that can be a very big turn off but I think switching to IE for a few minutes is entirely worth the hours of fun this game has given me so far.
Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars Review
Sun, 01 Apr 2007 04:52:27 +0000
Here is a review of the much needed addition to the Command & Conquer series. I’m usably a First Person Shooter guy but this game looks amazing and is the first of the Command & Conquer series that I will play for a very long time to come. The earlier version where good but not good enough to move me from my usual FPS games and I have been highly addicted to the Battlefield series for a long time now, but I think this game will force me to change roles.
The visual aspect of this game is so much better than the past attempts which make it very nice to look at. When it comes to the past Command & Conquer games I have not been very impressed with the graphics in game. Compared to FPS of the same vintage but with this release they have really picked up their game and have produced a very pretty game. It’s no Battlefield 2142 but should keep even the pickiest people happy for a while to come.
Game play is as always the strongest point of this game and will have you on the edge of your seat for many hours of unbelievable game play. If you are a fan of the past editions of the Command & Conquer series then you will love the new Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars. I would recommend this game to anyone no matter what type of games they are use too playing. This game is a huge improvement for the series and should keep the fans very happy.
