@The people thumbing my review down... Cry me a river you racing-game-casual-nerds. :P-Quick Review-
Zero Gear is an indie Racing game, the community is pretty much dead, but if you don't feel like you've had enough kart games, here you go, just for you.
Disclaimer: I'm voting it down *not* because it's a bad game, but because the community is dead, you will play by yourself 9 times out of 10. (Maybe you don't mind that? Maybe you want to play a racing game by yourself? Go ahead and get it, lol)-Detailed breakdown review-Story:
Instead of a telling the gist of the story (there is none) I'm going to tell my own story. The first time I loaded this game I listen to the soundtrack and though "Woa! This sound really good" I called my brother over and said "doesn't that sound like it has good potential?"
I clicked "quick game" and BAM
all my hopes and dreams were crushed... This was in fact... a racing game.
To provide a back story, I've always strongly disliked racing games and driving games. But Saints Row 3, Mafia 2, and Just Cause 2 have all forced me to learn how to drive in video games.Game Play:
The first game I played was some type of "Soccer" (or "Football" for those whom aren't in the USA), this is probably the worst game in the batch. There are several game modes: Tag, Race, and Soccer. All of these can be played and learned, however it takes a bit of getting used to the turning style... Much to my frustration when learning the basics of the game.
Soccer/Football/Hockey, your goal is to get the ball/puck into the other team's goal (pun intended).
Race is where you drive in circles for a few laps and try to beat the NPC's, because humans don't play this game anymore.
Tag, for those of you with no childhood; is when you run away from one person because he/she was designated being "it", whatever it is, who knows? In this game it's reversed. You WANT to be it, so you can score points and win.Achievements:
There are 45 Achievements in Zero Gear, Most of them are easily obtainable, however a number of them are bugged, and still more require the assistance of one friend.Price
the price for Zero gear, is $4.99 that's pretty fair, if you really want this game just wait for a steal sale, you can probably pick it up for a couple dollars.Conclusion:
AHHH a racing game. *deletes the devil from my computer*
Again, I'm giving it the thumbs down because most people probably won't want to spend time playing this game. The game works, and I could go one way or another, but with my friends interest in mind; probably should just skip this game. You could get a more delightful indie games for the same price.
