ESR: European Street Racing
Racing cars is a pure adrenaline rush. Hearing the revs of the engine, feeling the g-force push you to one side as you power out of corners and trying hard to stop grinning like a schoolboy who's just got a glimpse of his first porn mag... it's thrilling stuff. And thanks to next-gen technology in games, now everybody can experience that feeling. Without having to sell your gran for the insurance policy either.
Well... in most cases, anyway. If I was feeling generous, I'd comment that there's very little to recommend in ERS. But, unfortunately, the drinks machine's run out of Lucozade, so here goes. The cars are a bunch of blatantly ripped off real world vehicles with the odd tweak here and there to make sure they get past the legal department, the menus and options are so basic they make Paris Hilton seem like a quantum physicist, the graphics look like they've been put together by a bunch of incompetent pig farmers, the handling of the cars feels more like driving an over-sized Scalextric vehicle, and the physics system obviously has more in common with the laws of Oliver Reed than Newton. Oh, and the 'street racing' of the name simply consists of made-up roads with well-known sights dotted about. The PC's answer to Project Gotham Racing it certainly isn't. Unless, of course, the question was 'how shit can a driving game be?'
