For this new chapter in our GSY Retro series, we decided to focus on a studio rather than a game. Black Rock Studio, formerly known as Climax (Moto GP on the first Xbox), managed to develop two new franchises whose Metacritic score reached more than 80. Sadly, it didn't prevent them from being shut down by Disney Interactive in 2011, a year after their second game was released. As you may have already guessed, the two titles we're talking about are Pure and Split/Second, two games that were undeniably good and that would have deserved next gen sequels. Take a look at our videos of the two PC ports (and realize that we have come a long way since then in terms of PC adaptations).
@Moonwalker: Agree about the jungle, was what looked best. Also agree about the foliage moving looked weird. But gameplay, characters, voice acting, shoehorned upgrade system, it's so generic. (6 Hours ago)
@asdfg: Some parts looked really good. Like when it morning comes and how the jungle looks. But the way foliage moves is odd though. Wish it was like Uncharted 4,haha. (6 Hours ago)
