The best part of it for me is you can play it with the Driving Force GT wheel (and others like the G25 and G27, I think) and it feels great. The physics have been nerfed a bit for a more arcade feel, but it works in the confines of destruction derby just fine. This isn't a rally game, so it doesn't need to feel ultra-real. There are a ton of races/events and two "playgrounds" in which to collect icons and pull off tricks. I've only played a handful of races so far, but I can see where it's going and am enjoying it very much.
One annoyance is the announcer; he just sounds too corny. That may be what they were going for, but it gets in the way of the fun for me. For the last even I played, I turned him down to zero, but for some reason, I could still hear him. Either I'm doing something wrong, or it needs to be patched.Read more ›
I believe I'm forgetting a few other modes (I'm still just 5 hours into the game) but my least favorite mode has to be Knockout. Not because it's bad, but because the scoring is very...fickle. It's essentially random as to who gets the points when there are cars piled against the edge. Hopefully Codemasters fixes that.
Multiplayer is the same, except against human opponents, and this is where Showdown shines. Playing online with friends is a blast. I foresee many hours being spent here taking each other out. For anyone on the fence, do yourself a favor and try the demo on PSN/XBL. If you are at all a fan of destruction derby's/smash-em-up games, this is for you!
EDIT: one thing to note is that this game CAN be frustrating, if you let it get to you. There are numerous times when the AI manage to hook you and your spin out. This usually happens on the last, or second to last lap. It take a bit of time to get used to the AI tendencies, but once you do, it's a bit easier to predict their move and try to counter it. As I said, if you don't let it get to you, it shouldn't be a problem. Most races last roughly 3 minutes so you can always "restart" if necessary :)
The single player mode, called the Showdown Tour, just isn't engaging. The gameplay itself is good, but there's nothing to keep you glued to the screen. There is no storyline, which is the main reason the campaign isn't engaging. You just go from race to race with pretty much just loading and saving in between. There's no repairing or customizing cars. The upgrade system is boring and unsatisfying. Once you get 1st in a race, you can't win any more money if you do that race again, which means you have to play multiplayer to get more money to buy and upgrade all the cars. However, my biggest gripe of all is the stuttering. In the majority of the races, for the majority of each race, the game would stutter every 2 seconds or so. This sucked a lot of the fun out of the game. In most ways, Codemasters didn't do a very good job with the Showdown Tour.
After I (quickly) beat the Showdown Tour, I played th Joryide mode. I actually had more fun with this mode than I did with the Showdown Tour. The game gives you "missions," which are really just tasks, to complete and there are collectables to find all over the map. There are two maps to explore, each with three areas that you unlock one after another. But once you unlock them all, it just becomes one big map. Each area has a certain amount of collectables and 25 missions. While the collectables can be hard to find, the missions were very fun.Read more ›
