Bus-Simulator 2012

I really hate seeing all the negative press about this game on here and seriously if I didn’t know better I wouldn’t buy this game based on the reviews… thought I would address that!

With a mixture of common sense and user manual articulation this is a very playable game; in fact the BEST of the whole Bus Sim world out there…

A lot of people have problems with performance and bugs BUT with a bit of trial and error and settings adjustments etc.. you can make the game semi stable on your machine even with low to average hardware. Anyone who hasn’t spent hours over their lifetime making very tidious and endless adjustments to a game’s setup just to get a minimal amount of great gameplay hasn’t lived and should buy an xbox…

Imagine shooting up heroin whilst riding a roller-coaster made of crystalline excitement which is going through gargantuan hoops of fire over a swamp infested with three-headed sharks which have lasers for eyes and chainsaws for fins. That is exactly what Bus Simulator 2012 is not like.

You are initially offered a choice between two settings, “Beginner” or “Expert”. Beginner mode is essentially expert mode with more prompts and sunny weather. Even on the beginner setting there is a steep learning curve, I ended up watching tutorials online and consulting the manual due to the inadequacy of the limited in-game prompts and lack of help features.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you about this game. It’s actually a really fun game where you control all the cars in a time loop so you have to drive your car’s path to it’s destination smartly so the cars don’t collide. Great concept and soundtrack! This game is very enjoyable and worth you time.

Criminal Pursuit Force

Criminal Pursuit Force

I originally went into this game thinking “Oh, it’s just a bit of fun. Nothing too serious, I’ll review it as such.”

However, I reported the games main flaw being that criminals always end up getting stuck in the same place under the bridge. I did this so the developer had time to fix the bug before I reviewed it. I’ve since went back and played only to find the bug still hasn’t been fixed after he assured me it had been.

This game doesn’t have a lot going for it, it’s a basic loop of crashing your car into a criminals car in order to apprehend them. Then the level restarts and you do it over and over again. Don’t worry though, they’ll always be under the bridge at the local criminal stop point. There’s nothing else to it, that’s it.

I like trash games very much and i had a blast with this game. So, i recommend this game to all trash fans. But for the others, i say just no, this is a really bad game. In Criminal Pursuit Force you are a female cop (only visible in the missions screens as a picture) hunting bad guys. The goal of every level is to catch an enemy car with your police vehicle. I like that kind of game and that is why i bought it. But there are so many things that are just awful. The graphics are outdated and there is just one small map (for all missions). There are not many sound effects in the game, just a police-radio, which tells you the same thing over and over, and a police siren. No engine sounds or other effects (maybe that is just a bug). The music is ok, but there are not many tracks. The worst part of the game are the ai-drivers, the normal ones and the enemy. I never saw such stupid drivers in a game, they even can not stay on the road. You have to see that for yourself to believe it (watch may video under the text). And on top of that all, the game is not finishable because in one mission, the enemy car is not findable. So my final verdict for the game, buy it if you want to laugh about the most stupid drivers in gaming history, otherwise avoid it.

This game has a lot of potential. I would love to see replays implemented, as well as after the race machine cams, kinda like F Zero GX has. The game runs great, looks amazing, and has super tight controls. I highly recommend this game to any fans of F Zero, Wipeout, or if you just like fast racing games.

Very polished and futuristic racer. Soundtrack is very atmospheric with a hint of 90s dance! Played for about 20 minutes and there are lots of tracks and many ships to unlock which i guess the more you play and advance through the game you can unlock.

The graphics are impressive and the speed is fast but you don’t find yourself crashing into the side of the track a lot trying to control the ships! When you do crash you don’t lose a lot of time trying to catch up to the other ships and trying to gain back your position.

Exo Racing

Exo Racing


  • Racing with Storyline!

  • Dozens of cars

  • Plenty of tracks

  • True underground racing

  • Cars have upgradable parts.


In Sugarlake City exists unique sort of racing called ‘Exo Racing’. ‘Exo Racing’ was initially illegal sport of racing around and inside of the city. Legalized by authorities but still very dangerous. At least - that’s what you see on the outside. But the truth is - the whole city is a nest of criminal organizations that pretty much controls the entirely place, from police to judges. The player takes a role of one of previous Exo-Racers who had quit the field and now, a very dramatic situation forced him to return to Exo Racing.

I didn’t expect this to be good. It is not. A student university project. It probably got an A, but you wouldn’t even play it for free.

Badland Envoys

Badland Envoys

In a broken world of desolated wastelands, chaos, rage and destruction dictate the rules of survival. Far stretches of the ruined land are ruled by self-acclaimed warlords and bandits that roam the roads with their diesel-fueled war machines, delivering the cruelty to anyone that dares to enter their domain. In all of this madness, pockets of a new civilization start to shimmer. That’s where you come in. As a member of the Badland Envoy’s, and elite guild of skilled drivers, you’ll be tasked with leading the expeditions between towns and newly created settlements, establishing safe routs, protecting the cargo, and eliminating any encountered threat. You’ll be a messenger, a porter, a warrior, and most of all, a new hope for those that try to rebuild humanity.

Do you have what it takes?

If you’re get stopped out there, you’ll die. Think fast, drive faster, react instantly. Remember, it’s not always about the speed of your car – sometimes it’s about the speed of your trigger.

Spending some of that hard-earned buck on your rides is always a good idea. Installing new armor plating, homing missiles launcher or a high tech nitro system can make a difference between life and death out there on the road. Be good to your chariots and they’ll repay you with the same. Trust me.

So you’ve got a few extra wheels and hired some new crew members? Good. You can trust them to have your back, but when things get really tough, don’t hesitate to give them commands from a more tactical point of view. It can save your life, and more importantly – your cargo.

If it wasn’t about the job, we’ll be no different than the bandits. The orders placed through the Guild give us goals, meaning and hope for a better feature. Remember that all orders have different sets of requirements. Delivering medicine through hills requires more vehicles, different gear and more specialized crew than a recon mission deep into marshlands. Plan ahead and you’ll be fine.

See you on the road.


  • Experience fast-paced, action-oriented vehicular combat.

  • Use Tactical mode for more top-down approach.

  • Unlock deadly vehicles to ride, upgrade and shine with style.

  • Gather unique vehicle customizations, including armor plating, weapons, and tuning parts.

  • Encounter savage enemies, each witch different strengths, weaknesses and combat tactics.

  • Challenge world bosses, including armored train and mechanized desert fortress.

  • Complete dozens of orders spread through the far reaches of Badlands.

  • Recruit additional crew members, each with a different set of unique skills and traits.

  • Traverse various environments – from town ruins, through desert wastelands, all to the bogged wetlands.

  • Experience a day and night cycle that affects gameplay – It’s harder to aim at night, but remember - it works both ways.

  • Witness various environmental conditions and dangers, like corrosive acid rain or deadly desert storm.

Heavy Metal Machines

Heavy Metal Machines

Don’t know how did it happen but I played 650+ hours in this game.

With that been said I decided to write my first ever review. For starters, I have to say that I haven’t played much for the last half of the year, but several rounds I played yesterday reminded me why I don’t really want to continue.

I played on European server, so all I say is related to that. Because I belive situation on South American server is very different.

The first good, then bad impressions. The gameplay is very good, machines are well balanced and have distinct features. Even after mastering your skill with a certain machine, you have dozen of other machines which will give you totally different game experiences. It’s interesting to play solo (those games when you play with bots in your team :) ) and in the team. Team play is very important and brings the most fun. So there is so much to learn to become a good player and it seems that you could have spend a very long time with this game, but it doesn’t happen and below I continue why…

Super Pilot

Super Pilot

This game is one of the “F-Zero-Inspired games” that GETS to say that it is F-Zero inspired. Because it is. The controls and layout, and overall feel are vastly similar to F-Zero GX. Racers don’t get to boost until the second lap, and of course, movement is a fair bit sensitive. The three most important things to getting the F-Zero feel.

However, it does manage to have it’s own identity, as can be seen in how boosting is done. Unlike F-Zero, boosting doesn’t deplete energy, but there’s more a “limit” as to how it can be used. Use it too much too soon, and your machine will easily wreck if you sustain a hit or two. In the event you do get wrecked, you can respawn. This is something that would likely welcome people who were intimidated by F-Zero basically punishing a fail for having players be wrecked for the entire race (more racers however should try to be as punishing in my opinion).

Super Pilot is an arcade racer following the footsteps of F-Zero. The game follows F-Zero’s ideas pretty closely and is a perfected execution of a modern take on the mechanics. I struggle to find anything to dislike about Super Pilot and can’t wait for it to continue getting updates and eventually release out of Early Access.


In this game, you won’t be using anything but pure skill and understanding of mechanics to win a race. There are no powerups and no random advantages. If you are better than the people you play with, or the artificial intelligence, you will simply be better. There’re no blue shells or lightning strikes to cheat you out of a victory. Now, this can be seen as bad because it does mean Super Pilot’s racing is very simple. At the same time, taking away the random factors of a lot of other arcade racers makes this one significantly fairer. You will win because you are better, or you will lose because you’re worse.
