Summary

My god... Split Second is amazing! This game is innovative, destructive, and addictive, What more could you ask of a game? Now power plays are basically events that are designed to uberpwn your opponents! It's interesting to check out the massive variety of power plays, ranging from gas stations exploding to airplane crashes and they're all fun to trigger! I was also impressed by the power awarding system, you can get power by drifting, jumping, or drafting. Most power plays are simple explosions but some, the ones i'm really fond of, are the ones that take one hell of a lot of power to activate! These ones are HUGE like destroying cooling towers and breaking a dam. With some of these you can sometimes take out every opponent and trust me, there's nothing more satisfying than wrecking everyone in the race! The online races are fun but they take a long time to get into. The tracks are all well designed and are visually stunning! So to me split second is a great racing game that definitely deserves a place in your game library!

Summary

Split Second: Velocity is an ok racing game...

The graphics are ok,and have some good detail,also the sound is ok,and the gameplay is quite good,and the controls are easy to use.

Also the single player is ok,but its not that good,because it gets boring,and its really easy to complete.

And the good is that you can knock down big things and take out the racer thats in front of you.

And you can unlock loads of cars by earning credits,and there are many modes that you can play in.

And you also have a bar at the bottom of your hud,showing the health of your car.

And the multiplayer is great,and on the online you can play in a match with up to 8 players is one race.

Summary

If you like a game with explosions, buildings dropping, missiles incoming, and helicopters locking onto your six second car then this is the game for you. It has quite a challenge to it. at any split second you can be pulverized. Great game for adrenaline junkies AND racers. Amazing picture and sound quality all around and realistic driving methods. I would compare it to PURE but with more explosions and power but the twist is that you get to drive an amazing array of cars and can attack your enemy racers using the environment around you. Very easy to get used to even if you have no experience with other racing games. And last but not least, the drifting effects amazed me also. You gotta learn to use your E brake if you're going to make it through the non stop madness in every stage. I'm definitely hoping for a second one!




This is a veary good game for the Ipod touch and it is only $4.99.

The Simpsons Arcade Game is a great Simpsons game that is a must-own for all Simpson fans.

"Old-school"

Summary

Ever since the Simpsons were created, they have appeared in video games, for many platforms. And just like all other licensed properties, the games have sucked, with the exception of the Simpsons Hit and Run by Radical Entertainment and The Simpsons Arcade Game by Konami.

And now we have The Simpsons Arcade Game. Don't get this game confused with the game made by Konami, Electronic Arts has created a totally new game. The gameplay may be similar, but the game is totally different.

The game is a beat 'em up. You play as Homer, who goes through stages, beating up enemies. To control him, you use the joystick and buttons on the screen to move and attack, respectivly.

As you go through the levels, you'll meet more enemies that have different abilities. However, the weaker enemies seem to repeat often. When you complete one of the parts in a level, you will fight a boss, which is a character from the show. The bosses were challenging, since you had to find it's weak spot, and exploit it. The bosses may also change up their attack pattern to make it harder.

There are also power ups that you can grab. The rest of the Simpsons are also here to help out Homer. They each do something different. Bart will repeatedly shoot his slingshot, Marge will vacuum Homer's head, making his arms spin and plow through everyone in his way. There are other powers, like doughnuts which will restore your health.

One of the biggest letdowns with this game is that it wasn't voiced. That's a dissapointment, because with voice acting the game could've been funnier. I understand why it wasn't, due to the limitations of the iPhone/iPod Touch. There is still humor in it, because there are some voice clips.

THE VERDICT!

Overall, The Simpsons Arcade Game is a great game. It's presentation is where the game truly shines. Everything is seamlessly packed together. You get a great looking game, coupled with great controls, mild humor, and fun gameplay into one affordable package: $3. If you're a fan of the show, then you should definintly give this a go. You won't be dissapointed.

Final Score:
8- Great
