    I was recently looking for a new MMO game to play (I quit FFXI) and my bro introduced me to Project Torque, it's an online racing game that looks pretty neat, check it out at http://www.aeriagames.com/ if you want to catch me online I'm Skye7707 on the game. They're having a rush hour event at the moment where you get double RP & XP so if you wanna try this game I'd say give it a shot right away ^^

    I've posted a review of the game on GameFAQs: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessag...&topic=39268528

    Lemme know your toughts ^^




    p.s. if this should belong in the testing area, feel free to move [​IMG]

    It's a typo for "MOMO" and means the game supports this wheel:

    Because, you know, massive multiplayer online racing game... Um... how "massive" can a racing game be? 20 people? I mean, anything over that, and you'd need huge tracks, and who would keep track of the scores with half the people logging out all the time?

    It's a game developed this year >_> so I doubt you have played it 5 years ago lol.

    And this one is free, not like Test Drive which has a crap community too.

    It IS in fact a MMO not a MOMO [​IMG]

    There are 5 lobbies and everyone can create rooms (max 8 ppl per room) and there are over 300 ppl online simultaniously so yeah it's quite MMO [​IMG]

    Well there are other gameplay modes, such as explorer that allow people to drive around as they please on tracks

    Well, yeah, but no. I mean, at its peak, there were thousands of people online with their Animal Crossing: Wild World, but it still wasn't an MMO. Or MarioKart DS. There's a limit of 8 people per race here, if I understood correctly (8 people per room?). That's not so massive.

    i said burnout paradise was mmo because if you are online, other racers who are online will drive around paradise (in real-time) much like test drive [​IMG]
