GameSpot Reviews 4x4 Evolution
12:27 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
GameSpot has taken Terminal Reality's recently released off-road racing game 4x4 Evolution for a spin. One of the most attractive features of the game is the ability to take almost any sports utility vehicle (SUV) or truck in recent production for a virtual test drive -- or reproduce your real-world SUV in exact detail. GameSpot loved the game, and offered this description:
Once you see the stunning scenery and terrain graphics, you'll probably wish there were some sort of explore mode that lets you drive around the countryside without having to worry about lap times or prize money. Even on a midrange system with a decent video card, the frame rates tend to be very smooth even with all the graphics options turned on. The terrain is very lifelike whether you're slinging mud in a swamp or stirring up a cloud of dust in the desert, and you'll be impressed as all sorts of other vehicles like hang gliders, jets, big rigs, back hoes, and more go about their business as you fight to keep your car on the road and in the race. These other vehicles aren't just there for show, as you'll learn if you happen to go head-on with a 16-wheeler (don't worry, you don't get crushed - it just pushes you back) or if you slam into a bulldozer crossing the racetrack.4x4 Evolution is now available on store shelves across the country for $39.99 for Macintosh, PC, and Dreamcast. Watch for a Mac-specific review with details on performance and controllers on the pages of IMG in the near future.
