The more perceptive readers out I there will remember OWI from its previous incarnation on the 3DO, but Off World Interceptor Extreme is a whole new ball of wax. The original was a cool shooter set on a faraway planet that incorporated humor, great visuals, and a whole lot of ultra-violence, and the new version stays faithful to it. But this time around, the game has been stroked and tuned to perfection. Now players can 3 switch between cockpit and chase views as they r please, just like in games like Ridge Racer. The level layouts have been changed to provide more challenge and, if you want to check out the old level layouts, you can cruise around them in a new Training Level. But that's not all! The frame rate has been increased to smooth out the animation and the sky now scrolls to provide the feel of total immersion. A few features from the original game have been changed to allow players to keep their minds on the mayhem, too. The fuel system has been happily given a pink slip (you never have to worry about running out of gas) and the traction on the cars has been increased (you never get stuck thanks to bald tires).
