Team Losi Rc Racing
If this one looks familiar, it's because the developers were also responsible for TNIN Hardcore 4X4. But instead of racing souped-up super monster trucks through treacherous terrain, you control 16 remote-controlled vehicles through 16 distinct levels, including beaches, mountains, and deserts. An interesting gate system is being implemented so you'll have to drive through colored gates in a specific order to gain a particular power-up (there are even secret power-ups). There are also a ton of hidden tracks and cars. Although the game won't boast the physics of real racing, it certainly is shaping up to be a ton of mini-fun.

It's no secret that RC racing games are generally a hit with gamers. Who can forget the fun of RC Pro Am from the olden days of the NES? It would only make sense that a new addition to the genre would be on its way. Enter: Team Losi RC Racing from Fox Interactive.
This nice-looking racer with fancy 3D lighting effects drops you in the front seat of one of 16 different remote-controlled vehicles. What makes these cars more than just some polygons the game's design team whipped together is the fact that Gremlin is working with leading race team and car manufacturer Team Losi to give the cars in the game the look, feel and response of actual RC cars. The development team has been spending time at RC tracks with Team Losi so they have a better understanding of how RC cars respond to steering input, acceleration, etc. On top of this, the cars in the game will be colored and decorated to represent real Team Losi models, with the fastest car in the game being modeled after the World Champion. Of course, a cool license is only part of what makes a game good.
The four modes of play are straightforward, giving you what you might expect from a racing title. The one-player courses offer plenty of play in themselves with shortcuts and other secrets, and there's a Two-player Head-to-head Mode for added replay--a must-have mode for any racing game. The other two modes are a Championship and Time Attack. The game's normal-sounding (but surreal-looking) environments include a Diddy Kong-inspired beachside course, a mountain pass and a scorching desert, among many others. Overall, there are 16 different courses to race on.
Each of the levels have colored gates you must pass through to receive power-ups. Let's say you pass through a red gate. An icon on the screen tells you the next gate in the sequence is yellow, and then green and so on. Once a certain number of gates are passed through, a power-up is yours. If you miss on of the gates though, you'll have to start fresh with no power-up.
For added realism, each of the game's cars has its own physics, which Team losi has helped with. But since the courses you ride around on aren't like your average everyday RC tracks, the physics are a bit more relaxed. The cars can easily bounce and flip over if they hit a ramp a certain way.
