ZeroTolerance writes: Growing up I was obsessed with the Crash Test Dummies, really quite morbid if you think about it in context. Children watching characters that are designed to crash head first into walls to ensure the safety of vehicles is not something to imitate. Fast forward to 2009, kids are now watching much more politically correct cartoons, and the vapor trail of everyone's favorite Dummies are nowhere to be found.
CID the Dummy is a spiritual successor to this franchise, and was originally conceived back in 2005 for the original Xbox by a completely different publisher. Oxygen Games has picked up the tab and finally delivered the game we have all been waiting for, or maybe not. The gameplay is archaic, the platforming can be a mess, and the overall premise just feels too familiar to be coincidence. Surprisingly I still had fun smashing poor CID's head into wall after wall.
