Megarace 3

Wednesday, January 23, 2002 by TheDoc || [0 Comments]

Megarace 3
Overall: 3
Graphics: 4
Interface: 3
Multiplayer: 3
In this fast-action game, players can choose among a dozen different vessels. Each vessel has its own strengths, characteristics and three active modes: Speed, Attack and Defense. As to be expected from all MegaRace titles, all of these ships are modular and, depending on the players results, can all be personlized. With a player’s winnings, different modules can be obtained to improve the engine charactertics, and/or upgrade the armor and weapons. Several game modes are available as well, such as a simple solo race, race with customizable ships, capture the flag and duel mode. All game modes can also be be played in network mode.

Graphics/Display:

The graphics in the game are nicely done, although a bit dated. It looks like they have used the same engine for the graphics as the last Megarace. After saying that, I must still admit that they are, and always have been able to pull off good looking graphics that are smooth in the game, no matter how much action is going on.

Interface/Controls:

The interface is rather plain, using the keyboard for the action, although I'm pretty sure you can use a game pad or joystick for the action. It is like most other racing games that use the keyboard though, tight turns require that you slow down, rather than pressing the key harder (don't laugh, I know that I'm not the only one that does it, although I know it's not going to make a difference). The keys are simple and straight forward though, arrows control movement and A,S,D contol the mode (Attack, Speed, Defense). It's about that simple.

Multiplayer (if any):

I didn't play much multiplayer, but like any racing game, there's nothing that stands up to a human player. While the AI is good, you can't predict another person's actions.

Summary:



All in all, if you like Lance Boyle and his comments, you'll like the game. I think I'd wait until the price comes down, as it's basically the same game as before, with a few changes, but it's still a pretty fun racing game if you're looking for something different.
