Here is my latest game review for The Cairns Post, my second of a game provided by a publisher: THQ’s motorcross simulator, MX Vs. ATV Reflex.
This one was definitely out of my comfort zone. The first game I reviewed that I hadn’t actually bought was Speed Racer, way back in ’07, so I didn’t have the anticipation and enthusiasm that kept me playing though Halo 3: ODST, Bayonetta and Mass Effect 2. It’s also a strictly real world game, right down to the licensed bike parts and rider gear, so it can’t afford to go all arcade-y like Burnout Paradise. Still, all that made for a refreshing, challenging change.
As always, the review is a PDF file, so you’ll need Adobe Reader.
Next up: Back to familiar territory with Capcom’s pulp-SF jetpack shooter, Dark Void.
