    Yes, it is, And why do I seem to beat the admins on the release info by a few hours? I don't number mine so they aren't confused with the official posts. I guess they are tied up with IRC. Well, thanks for putting an official admin's post. Thug didn't do it this time.

    I know, I just have had little to do this past month. So far it appears a pretty good game. Reminds of a mix between GTA (not Grand Theft Auto) and the top gear's for GBC

    well i just had a quick play, so far so good.

    graphically it's fairly impressive, although it kind of demonstrates that complicated 3D on a tiny screen isn't easy to pull off.

    gameplay's quite good too, fps is fine, no glitches there. the collision detection is also quite decent.

    a big improvement on previous 3d racers, but more than anything it just makes the future look brighter. more polished games could really take advantage of this kind of technology.


    but most impressive (and somewhat strange, if you ask me), it's a 32 megabit dump. imagine what they could do with a 3d racer using a 128 cart!

    p.s.
    why is my car so damn ugly? it looks like a b-grade superhero's stationwagon. ugg.

    this game seems to use an upgraded v-rally 3 engine, this is geat, 8/10 overal

    Well since the game uses textures and not sprites the size of the rom will be small. The developers could of added a lot more textures but I think the GBA and the graphics engine are already being pushed pretty far; we could of ended up with a really crap framerate and besides the game would of been more expensive to publish.

    Who said I was asking for one? Besides half the people on here already know urls to just about every GBA rom site available. My post merely expressed the view that IRC is too much hassle when there are rom sites which are just as goodg.

    Why, was I breaking them?

    You seem to imply that I'm incompetent and show stupidity, obviously not an observation concluded from the structure and content of my posts but more likely from my inferior post count. Well regardless, one things for sure you should at least read the post through to some sense of understanding before you jump to conclusions.

    Anyway not being one who likes feeling responsible for threads becoming locked; on the topic at hand I still prefer V-Rally 3, the visuals, presentation and gameplay are by far superior even if the cars are sprites unlike Top Gear Rally. [​IMG]
