4x4 Evo Preview
8:21 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Sharky Extreme has posted a new preview of Terminal Reality's off-road racer 4x4 Evolution. It's a quick look at the game, and seems based on the public beta release. Here's a clip describing the SUV action:

But the tradition of free-form racing continues. You still have to hit the checkpoints but it's up to you where you want to drive and how much mud you want to kick up into the camera. And that's one of the most startling differences-- or, evolutions -- from the Monster Truck days. Now in the rain, mud or snow there is significant material kick-up from the tires. There is sliding, not fishtailing like a two-wheel drive vehicle, but the disconcerting four-wheel slide you get from an SUV. The graphics look great, particularly the headlight effects and the impressive sky and sunset textures. Best of all, I was impressed while looking at graphics that probably weren't finished yet.
One of the most impressive feats of 4x4 will be the multiplayer between Macs, PCs, and those on the Dreamcast console. If you still haven't tried the beta, head over to Macgamefiles now and give it a download - over 22,000 people already have!
