A racing game featuring established features of the RPG genre is a

rather intriguing prospect. With such ambition, it�s easy to fear

that the racing itself would be left under realised as the numbers

governing the game behind the scenes overwhelm the rest of the title.

It�s a challenge for any development team then, Milestone has been

brave, and the results are now here for all to see with the arrival of

the first ever CARPG.

It�s tough not to laugh at a game that is seemingly going through

a bit of an identity crisis. CARPG? Simple, it�s a car game enhanced

with elements from the RPG genre. After playing this Alfa Romeo themed

title we soon came to realise that the development team haven�t done

too bad at all in attempting to get everything right, in fact it�s

an admirable job for what has turned out to be a more than competent

racing simulation that just happens to boldly dip into another genre.

The RPG flirtation goes even further with the various gear that your

driver is able to don, including racing leathers, gloves, helmets and

boots. Wearing gear boosts stats as armour would in an RPG title,

improving the amount of damage that your car can incur, making your

intimidation have a quicker effect on your opponents or a lesser

effect on yourself, and so on. Gear can be won in the imaginatively

named �Gear Events�, provided that you manage to win the races, or

by clearing some of the games interesting challenges. Furthermore,

some gear can�t be worn if you don�t possess the required

experience level. It�s all rather silly, but it all hangs together

quite nicely in the end.

The racing itself doesn�t take a backseat to the role-playing

dynamic, which is how it should be, if anything, each aspect of the

game manages to compliment the next. The simulation part quickly comes

to light in your very first race. Cars are difficult to handle and

have a tendency to leave the track if you don�t treat your machine

with enough �real life� respect (this is with all the driving

assists turned on!). It�s light years away from arcade racing, and

we found ourselves attempting many races again and again as our car

seemed almost magnetically attracted to the roadside grass, or perhaps

we�re just bad drivers. Cars can also eventually be wrecked, which

makes what is already a difficult game, twice as difficult.

Which brings us nicely on to the Tiger Effect, a feature that allows

you to rewind time, and theoretically correct mistakes. Unfortunately

it�s a flop of a feature, which often has you repeating the exact

same mistake that you attempted to rectify, clever idea, but it

clearly hasn�t been test-driven, therefore it quickly becomes a

pointless and forgettable feature.

The AI don�t necessarily stick to the racing line and genuinely

act a lot more human then the Gran Turismo series has yet been able to

muster. They are prone to mistakes too and use the entire tracks to

their advantage, rather then sit seemingly glued on a predetermined

line, which makes for some exciting racing. The AI is even able to

intimidate you when driving close behind you, this eventually results

in a colourful, blurry screen and muted sounds, which is equal to

being drunk, it obviously makes driving a lot more difficult. Good

stuff.

If you like your racing, there�s certainly plenty here. The Tour

mode has 50 races over a five series run to compete in, and then of

course there�s the challenge mode, which comes available as soon as

you hit level 5, with further challenges coming available as you

advance onto the higher levels. There are 25 challenges in total,

which range from staying ahead of an opponent for a certain amount of

time to keeping speeds above certain limits throughout portions of the

track.
