Urban Extreme announced

Urban Extreme announced

The Nintendo Wii console will welcome Urban Extreme: Street Rage thanks to Data Design Interactive. It is an extreme racing game where the drivers can destroy opponents cars. Knowing that, traditionnal driving rules are not respected, which is even more true in the Carnage mode (kinda similar to Roadrage in Burnout going by the text) which should satisfy players in need for a crash. No release date has been given with the press release.

The title makes it sound like shovelware.

Yeah, hopefully good stuff at E3. Like QUALITY stuff. I think companies already realize that they don't need a quality game on the Wii. The millions of soccer moms who bought a Wii for their kids aren't going to pick up two games, look at them, and ask, "Which one got better gaming reviews?"

It's more like, whichever one is out the door first, doesn't totally suck, and has a flashier box art wins.

I think it's a matter of taste. I have exactly 4 games for each of the three consoles, so I'm gonna say they're all equally good. They all have plenty of crappy games on them too. The main difference is that the Wii ones LOOK crappier because it's a weaker console.

No, actually, people don't... :o/ If you only have two games for it, that just goes to show what a sucker you are for buying hardware without consideration of the content.

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (0 minute ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (18 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (25 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Where arbitrary review scores fail is conveying any kind of context or comparison to give a sense of just how good something is. It's summaries like that that hammers the point home. (26 minutes ago)

    alimokrane @Moonwalker: EDGE has always had a soft spot for nintendo anyway. (33 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Edge's conclusion is.....holy shitballs... [url] (45 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Yeah, it's indicative of not only gaming culture today, but anywhere with a forum in general, sadly. (59 minutes ago)
