Having said that, even though this is a different game than Road Retribution, I would keep your hopes modest.  This is a $40 release even on consoles, and Team 6 Games has not exactly been known for quality games in the past.

Does anyone still consider “open world” to be a good thing? 

I certainly do!  Most of the games I like are open world.

So, it's a buy, is what you're saying?

EDIT:  Whoops...never mind.  I was confusing Road Rage (the game Engine mentioned) with Road Redemption (a game currently on early access on Steam).  If you're curious about Road Redemption, read on...I know nothing about Road Rage.  smile

*****************

I broke my personal "no early access" rule, and picked this one up because I have a huge soft spot for the old Road Rash games.  As of about 3 weeks ago, it's simply awful.

It's buggy as hell, the environments are bland and boring, there's very few shortcuts on the tracks, the upgrade system alternates between 'meh' and 'WTF?', the bike and character models feel like nothing more than Hot Wheels cars (there's no damage modeling, and your bike basically feel glued to the road), and the opponent AI is laughably bad.  Maybe my rose colored glasses of the original are affecting my judgement, but there's honestly nothing engaging about it at all.

I mostly just came away horribly disappointed.

Fans of the old Road Rash games might get some nostalgia and excitement to know that a seeming "spiritual successor" called Road Rage will be coming out on multiple platforms this November.

Here is an introduction trailer.

Personally I was never a huge fan of Road Rash back in the day, but I know a lot of people were.  Hopefully this one turns out to scratch that itch.

Last night my wife reminded me she would be gone this weekend... and I am off tomorrow... after all the hemming and hawing, I just bought the Digital Ultimate edition so I could play tomorrow.

See you in Australia!

Oh, I guess I forgot to mention, did you try the new Carmageddon?  It isn't quite weapon-heavy like Blur, but it is racing with powerups and has lots of crashing and blowing up other cars in it.  They should be releasing the console version any week now I think.

The console version came out a couple of months ago.  With a thud of bad reviews and not great performance, as I understand it.

Oh, yup.  Damn.  I had hoped that the console release would bring some major updates and changes to the game, but I guess that was too much to hope for.

I've actually had the most fun reliving Carmageddon on the iPhone, bizarrely.

Why, by the love of all that's holy, has no one remade I76?  I would take some "spiritual successor" nonsense, even.

Mad Max?

Mad Max is great and a lot of fun, but it isn't anything like I76.
