Unterhaltsame Flitzerei mit netten Rollenspiel-Anleihen.
CAR is a game that unfortunately is restricted to only one make of car but adds so much to the racing genre that it is hard to ignore. If they are to do a sequel then a wider variety of cars could make this the premiere racing game in terms of simulation and longevity.
The Xbox has been home to a number of driving games, and really all have been done and dusted so for a new publisher to take a crack at the genre almost seems a bit silly. However these guys have pedigree with one of the best racing games on the system, Racing Evoluzione and for their second game have taken the innovation stakes even further by adding RPG elements to a racing game. This may not seem that new but the way they have implemented it works very well and makes SCAR one of the better racers on the Xbox.
Approche intéressante et clairement originale de la simulation de course automobile, SCAR est une agréable surprise, bien loin du statut de petit jeu de seconde zone que beaucoup lui ont octroyé. Plein d'idées et proposant une conduite spéciale, à la fois accessible et précise, il chute pourtant sur des défauts sûrement liés à un manque de moyens. En effet, le niveau graphique assez décevant et la stagnation au bout d'un temps assez court ne lui permettent pas d'accéder à des hauteurs glorieuses. Vous pouvez aisément vous laisser tenter si vous cherchez un peu de fraîcheur.
What if I presented you with the perfect full English breakfast? Bacon, peppered sausages, fried eggs, toast with plenty of butter, diced tomatoes, a couple of mushrooms and a few hash browns to finish it off nicely. I'm sure you'd say thanks, take it, apply some ketchup, push the mushrooms to one side and eat the rest. A nine out of ten breakfast - and were it not for those damn mushrooms, it would have been a perfect scorer, right? Now, halfway through this breakfast I tell you that the bread I made the toast with was out of date. You've already polished off the toast too, so bad tastes start to creep in. You politely carry on eating - I wander off and come back two minutes later with a pan of mushy peas. I don't know what came over me but I threw these mushy peas all over your eggs. That's really ticked you off, as you were looking forward to that element of the breakfast. The final straw lies in the ketchup you applied earlier.
t’s long been understood that the absence of Alfa Romeo cars in racing games hasn’t exactly been a loss to the genre. Out of all the Italian car companies owned by FIAT, Alfa Romeo has never stood out as being a remotely interesting, daring or good manufacturer, trying desperately to keep up with everyone else but failing to ignite even the smallest flickers of interest. It’s fitting then that a game like Squadra Corse Alfa Romeo (or S.C.A.R.) has everything a racing game should have, except for the pleasure of racing.
This game is not good. It does not deserve a namby-pamby "oh you'll like it if you like blah" part at the end. I'm not even going to shoehorn (ha!) in my usual "pick it up in the bargain bucket" line - do not buy this game. It will sap your will to live; it will kill off any enthusiasm you have for gaming and it will probably leave lasting SCARs.
Who in their right mind would willingly make a game about Alfa Romeos? Games being fun and all, and Alfas being a stain on roads the world over. Who would want to inflict that on people? (The answer is "Milestone" and "Black Bean Games," for those who can't be bothered glancing to the right) This game manages to live up to the legacy of the cars themselves in being utterly pointless and devoid of any redeeming features.Let's do this in a simple fashion:
