Whirl Tour is good rookie effort by Papaya Studios and Crave. The visuals are respectable and the audio is great. The game features the best story ever in an action-sports title. Some mismatched game play and a slow speed may turn speeders to other titles, though. There is too much competition right now, but rent this and try it, it's a solid game that may be ignored.

Der erste Blick täuscht bei diesem Spiel gewaltig. Während man es anfangs für ein weiteres unterdurchschnittliches Trendsportspiel von der Stange halten könnte, wird man nach ausgiebigem Spielen vom Gegenteil überzeugt. Die Kollisionsabfrage ist relativ großzügig ausgefallen, was dafür sorgt, dass der Frustfaktor sehr gering ist. Auch zu zweit macht es reichlich Spaß, auf Punktejagd zu gehen. Sehr durchwachsen ist nur die Grafik mit ihrer äußerst unstabilen Bildwiederholungsrate ausgefallen.

It's got problems, but Whirl Tour is actually a fairly decent Tony Hawk's Pro Skater clone, putting a different face on a familiar game. But, unfortunately for Papaya Studios, there's really no shortage of games that pull off the action sports formula with more style and enthusiasm, making Whirl Tour somewhat irrelevant. If, for some reason, the real-world motif of the average action sports game is what's keeping you from plunging into the genre, Whirl Tour may serve as a reasonable introduction, but that's about it.

All in all, Whirl Tour is about as basic as an extreme sports game as you can get. Of course, once you realize that everyone is riding a scooter, what would you expect? For the most part, the control handles well, and some of the level design is fairly decent, but the goals aren't unique or challenging enough to really bring any excitement into the game. There are a few decent two-player modes, and there's a fair amount of stuff to unlock, so the game should provide for a reasonable amount of playing time if you don't find yourself bored after a while, which is pretty likely.

Du Tony Hawk avec un guidon sur la planche. On reprend le même gameplay, on l'appauvrit un peu avant de lui adjoindre une maniabilité imprécise et peu agréable et voilà, c'est prêt à servir. Il y a beaucoup de clones du titre d'Activision, de bons et... des moins bons. Enfin, moi j'attends toujours la version « Tony Hawk fait du pédalo à Plougastel ».
