It's a crying shame this series never made it past the PSone generation. Heck, i'd be satisfied with a half decent clone with all the hours I've poured into this underrated gem.
Wipeout is great and all, but Rollcage amps up the fun factor whilst maintaining that blistering feeling of speed. With a surprising amount of depth, there is certainly more than one way to win a race which was quite groundbreaking for the time. Not fussed on finishing first? No worries. Just pummel your opponents with weapons to gain enough points to push you across the line instead. A measure of customization would have been extremely welcome but there's more than enough features here to keep you satisfied for hours. And who would've thought that 2 player rubble soccer could be so much fun? And you can't go past 2 player "Firefox" level as you speed around a giant ring, filling the arena with those spinning missiles. Amazing.
It doesn't demand the same level of punishing precision as the Wipeout series but is still satisfyingly difficult to finish to completion. Play it now!
The game may not have the lasting appeal of Psygnosis' "Wipeout" or Namco's "Ridge Racer," but it has enough gameplay, eye candy, and bonus secrets to put it near the top of what the PlayStation has to offer.
Mejor que el original sin duda, es sólo que no entiendo en que se enfoca el juego, en llegar en primer lugar dominando sus pistas o en arruinarle la carrera a los rivales por medio de poderes, creo que las mecánicas tan únicas de este juego dan para mucho más, sobretodo en el diseño de sus pistas que siguen sin exprimir al máximo sus capacidades.
At the time of release Rollcage, and this sequel, offered something a little different and quicker paced than the majority of other racing games. It certainly wasn’t a game you’d find yourself playing for months on end but it was fun whilst it lasted.
SummaryAn adrenaline-packed driving phenomenon delivering the ultimate in arcade racing. Combining the heart-pounding elements of extreme racing with a stack of souped-up features, such as insane Rubble Soccer, this game forces racers to use every trick in the book to win. [Take 2 Interactive]
