blood drive
About that, what eventually will be Blood Drive, to date, no idea, probably none. The development was in a remote information blockade. On the existence of a "secret project Activision became known as recently as September, but only a few weeks the game has already gone on sale. During this time, was published exactly two trailer (by the way, do not contain virtually no gameplay shots) so a handful of ugly screenshots. All we knew prior to the release, described by three incomprehensible thesis: "Zombie", "race" and "Las Vegas".

9999 in 1

However, the irony here is that, apparently, even the authors themselves can hardly imagine what exactly they want to arrange it. Uncompromising meat grinder in the spirit of Carmageddon ? Or maybe a wild "metal" in the post-apocalyptic thriller scenery with curtsey in the direction of Twisted Metal? Or hard avtoporno a la Flatout ?

"Oh, and it would not hurt to tie here shortcuts from Blur , and all events to put in the form of extreme TV show about zombies, like in this ... in Dead Rising 2 ! "
Blood Drive

Flatout we hinted about not by accident - there is a derby. It is a pity that the physically correct collapse pits are not included.

Now imagine it all together - and get more or less complete picture of the game.

Go to clarify: what is happening in the Blood Drive is very poorly fit in with what we've come to expect from the "arcade racing" in the traditional sense of the phrase. So, here you will not meet the usual routes with pre-set route from start to finish. Instead - Six free zones (for example, it can be multi-tier parking lot or area of an abandoned oil refinery), which you can navigate as you wish. In fact, the whole process entirely based on improvisation and full freedom in choosing a method of achieving the goal. Developers whenever asked only a general trend of events, and then laconically deviate to one side, and Blood Drive quickly rebuilt under variable rules.

Suppose the game poses the problem of lime as many zombies in the allotted time limit - at this moment the events surrounding the painfully reminiscent of Carmageddon . We writhes evil grimace in anticipation of an impending bloodbath, stamps right trigger to squeak in a gamepad - and at full speed and penetrate into pushing flows nasty undead.
Blood Drive

Unlike ordinary zombies who would rather just get confused under the wheels, rather than posing a real danger, this fellow is able to send your car to the scrap of a wave of his left hand.

More - more: Classic mode is activated "for survival", the track selected five of our opponents - clinical psychos at worst clunker almost completely lost their human face - there is already beginning Uniforms Twisted Metal mixed with Blur . We note with undisguised fury Mnemonic side competitors, roast their missiles, stealth leave mine ... Themselves in turn izgalyaemsya as we can: auto deteriorating rapidly, and all the available ammunition is discharged in the two accounts. Account instantly adapt to the sudden izvernuvshuyusya situation, looking intently in all this chaos, the desired shortcuts, and a lightning rush to him, hoping to have time before vrazhin. And so here all the time.

In addition, there is another curious detail: before each race we are free to select one of the perks to move the balance of technical advantages in one direction or another. For example, a lotion with a telling name Speed Demon gives (in theory) a small increase in speed. Want to become an invincible machine of death? Hence, choose the Tank - and have elevated ammunition, combined with additional mechanical stability to savory clashes. In fairness, we note that in single player gameplay is almost no effect - that if all the same thing so in multiplayer! .. And then suddenly Blood Drive starts solid gullies ...

The fact is that if for some reason you play the race solely for the multiplayer component, in this case about this venture is better to forget. On all servers at once - whether it be Xbox LIVE or PSN - reigned lethargic lifelessness. Of course, everything has a reasonable explanation: Blood Drive just came out not the right time, being at once between two fires: on the one hand, the slope does not Call of Duty: Black Ops , on the other - has appeared in time a great Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit , which the brainchild of Sidhe, honesty, and tires will not do. But despite this, which prevented the authors add here at least a split screen, decidedly unclear.
Blood Drive

With the balance of the game entirely all bad: sitting behind the wheel of this monster, you will hardly be concerned about their own safety. But the enemy has nothing to save.

And now a little "plot twist". Having read virtually devoid of any criticism of a review of the game and podglyadev corner of his eye the final evaluation, you must be tactful in our pointeresuetes: "And where is, in fact, the dog is buried?" Explains. In fact, any Masonic secrets in all of this no: technical implementation - that is ruining all the good standing venture developers. And though we are even willing to forgive the Blood Drive overdue graphics, buggy physics (especially during major accidents bulky trucks often flies up to ten meters up, and then plan for a long time on the ground) and a bunch of geymdizaynerskih errors. The only part that is not appealable under any circumstances - optimization. The bitter truth is that the local engine is just not able to keep the frame rate above 20 FPS, and racing is a disaster cleaner world invasion of zombies.

Pros: variegated characters, each with its own unique character and incendiary remarks, a lot of locations and game modes.
Cons: disgusting technical implementation, the lack of new ideas.
