IMG Reviews Darkwind: War on Wheels

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the Massively Multiplayer Online RPG Darkwind from Psychic Software. The game, which takes cues from classics like Car Wars and Roadwar 2000, is a turn-based car combat game. Here's a clip from the review of the game:
Darkwind is about vehicle combat, yes, but vehicle combat is a means to an end. There really is no "You" in the game- your in-game entity is your gang. Through vehicle combat, you advance your gang's skills and equipment loadout. Vehicular combat isn't without perils, as the in-game injury system is harsh. No sickbays, no curing spells, no magical tonics. Got a bad wound? That member might be out for two weeks. While time passes quickly in the Darkwind universe, that's a long time for your star race driver to be out. One of the more valuable sets of gang statistics is your Fame and Reputation. Reputation advances positively for hunting down raiders or other miscreants, but negatively for smashing the more law-abiding members of society. Fame just continues to spiral upward as you progress in the land of Evan. Both are public statistics, and influence both human players reactions as well as NPC reactions to your gang.Follow the link below to read the full review.
