In the days of the first 3D consoles of Saturn, PlayStation and Nintendo 64, certain video game genres became exhausted with 3D experiments that didn’t live up to scratch on the high street shelves. One such genre is the racing game. It’s true that there are a reasonable number of top-class racers out there, but there are also many poor interpretations. Rage’s reputation as a 3D developer is a good one, and their latest product for PlayStation 2, Wild Wild Racing, looks to be a good example of what Rage are capable of.

Visually, Wild Wild Racing is one of the better games available for the launch of the machine. The graphics are solid, well textured, and detailed. As an off-road racing title, WWR (Wild Wild Racing) consists of some highly complex racing techniques. You will come across mud, water and ice, with each surface forcing you to employ a new method of handling. Tracks are lengthy to say the least, and become even lengthier further into the game. Tracks will become complex, and you must learn to find and tackle some of the many tricky short cuts if you are to cross the finishing line in front of the pack.

WWR is not an easy game, by any means, and will challenge even the most competent racer in the industry. A great challenge.
