"Well the thing with Rollcage, WipEout, F-Zero as well, they're all classic, classic games.

I wasn't really interested in this game but I checked a trailer and damn, it looks pretty fun. 8 player splitscreen as well, which is insane!

I was expecting to see something really good, but I ended up seeing a Gripshift copy. And GripShift was baaaad, you'd want to delete it if you got it for free, that's how bad it is.

Yer, it's mostly just the 8 player splitscreen(which I'd never use anyway) that intrigued me...

It just looks like Rollcage to me... going upside down and stuff. Personally the physics of Rollcage looks better. I hope Liverpool Studios makes a Rollcage HD.. that was my favorite arcade racer on the PS1 (more so than wipeout)

If we're not gonna get F-Zero, this should be the next best thing.

I just had a look at this game and its pretty sad to think its pushing the wii. It doesnt look out of place for an iphone game
