[PSN Review] Wheels of Destruction - World Tour
In a lawless, post-apocalyptic world, Wheels of Destruction: World Tour pits you in a kill- or-be-killed competition of extreme four-wheel wreckage. This arcade-style, third-person multiplayer shooter features team death matches, free-for-alls, and capture-the-flag frenzies.
You’ll battle to crush opponents, slaying everything in your path of relentless devastation, both online and off.
Wheels of Destruction is an Online “Cars vs Cars fighting to the death” game where everything can happen at the wrong place, at the wrong time. You have to be on guard at every moment because an opponent might sneak up on you while you’re busy chasing that armored car that has been getting all the points for the match, or you might end up flying to your death after being shot with a missile while trying to make a precise, long distance jump towards another area of the map.
You have 6 different cars to choose from, and they each have strengths and weaknesses. You have your “all balanced” type of car, and the other are better at offense, defense, speed, durability and jet power. Depending on the game mode you’re playing, you will find that one or two cars are better for the task at hand. Unlike other similar genre games, in Wheels of Destruction you are allowed to switch cars after every time you’re destroyed, which means that no game is ever like the rest. You might be winning by a landslide and everyone switches to the right car type for the job and starts to hunt you down. No one likes the guy in first place!
Finding an online match takes only a couple of seconds since you just have to click and search and you’re ready to go! It is easier if you’re not picking and only want to find a specific match type, since the wider you cast your net, the easier it is to find a group of drivers you can call friends or enemies. In case you’re more of a single player kind of gamer, you can still enjoy the game in offline mode and bots (computer controlled A.I. cars) will take the place of the human drivers you’re used to fighting.
Wheels of Destruction – World Tour brings us a fun online heavy game that won’t make a dent on your wallet. The map and car variety, the available game modes, and the inclusion of an off-line mode round up a package that, while not perfect, will give you a LOT to do in exchange for your digital purchase.
