For those who still have a copy of it on PS3 and Xbox One and want to buy and play it again on modern hardware, here’s my tip: only do it if you have an enhanced console to play it on 60 fps. Other than that (and extending to PC users), don’t waste your money on this remaster. But if you never played Hot Pursuit before and like arcade racers, this is the one for you. Get ready for some of the most intense races and police chases ever created on a videogame. You’ll be on the edge of your seat for hours and crave for more!
Ride 4 has enough elements to continue pleasing its fans, with new features that could take it to another level. But the evolution in presentation, graphics and many other aspects is insufficient when what really matters, the racing, has suffered a downgrade.
WRC 9 is a feature-packed game, filled with options that every player can enjoy, regardless of their profile. However, compared to previous titles, the evolution is quite small and its worst flaws are still present, although they have been outlined a bit. A great franchise which perhaps lags behind other references of the genre that have known how to evolve more constantly.
Rock of Ages 3 doesn’t break new ground nor reinvent itself as it suffers from some of its previous shortcomings like its repeatability. But this can be alleviated by its multiplayer mode and user-created tracks or your own routes. This is the best title for new players interested in this franchise and there isn’t anything like it on the market.
If you are looking for the most realistic driving experience on a console and can feel gasoline running through your veins, this game was made for you. But if the sheer amount of options and the level of seriousness of Assetto Corsa Competizione scares you, steer clear of it.
