Day 853: Concept Car Series 2010

Posted: 2013/03/12 in Indie Games

From the same developer as “Racedrome Offroad” comes “Concept Car Series 2010”. Reminding me more of classic ’80s “Test Drive” than it does “Forza” or “Project Gotham Racing”, “Concept Car Series 2010” is a nice looking racing game that costs a mere 80 Microsoft Points. It focuses on a pure racing experience (no “Kudos” points of extensive tuning here), and playing it reminded me of racing games I played on systems as disparate as the Commodore 64 and the Sega Dreamcast. For those who didn’t play racing games in their golden age (when it was coming to have dozens come out a year as big top-dollar releases), imagine the love child of Sega’s Outrun and Microsoft’s Forza: it’s not hyper realistic, but nor is this “Speed Devils” either. Definitely worth a download for someone who just wants to race around rather than spending a tonne of time tuning, but who also wants a somewhat realistic experience. You know, how racing games often used to be, back in the good old days.

For reference: Speed Devils (Dreamcast version, also released on the PC as “Speed Busters”)

Here’s what the developer (Juan Alberto Munoz) has to say about the game:

“Get behind the wheel of some of the fastest concept cars, racing on closed roads around the world. Featuring 12 customizable cars across 3 performance categories, 8 reversible tracks, 2 championship modes, challenging computer opponents, 2-player splitscreen mode, trophies and global (P2P) high scores.”
