This is Ballistics - Velocity in its purest form! Ballistics is the
Formula One of the future. Needless to say Ballistics is for the
extreme speed freaks. Maximizing the use of the very latest 3D
cards Ballistics is furiously fast and sweet to your eyes.
Ballistics takes place during mans next century. Technology and
increasing demand for hazardous entertainment has born a new form
of racing. The Ballistics pilots run their hover bikes on magnetic
fields inside a track that allows full 360 movement. The races take
place in many different settings; all with their own unique design
and environment - all shaped to breed the speed.
Pilots control their hovering Speeders by two systems. One where the
Speeder attaches to the tunnels magnetic field. In this mode the
Speeder can strafe 360 degrees around the track still keeping its
direction. The benefit is more control in curves and when tackling
and overtaking opponents.
The second control system is enabled by hitting the detach switch
on the dashboard and release from the magnetic field. This will
enable free motion; loop, roll and turn inside the tunnels. The free
movement will allow the pilot to reach certain positions in the
track that allow pick up of bonus power ups or price money. The
downside of free movement is of course that it is harder to control
and can cause crashing at high speeds. Colliding with obstacles will
knock the player into detach mode and it is imperative for him to
get back on track and attach.
The game play is built upon almost limitless speed, avoidance of
obstacles, collecting of booster fuel and using of cooler zones that
are placed along the course. All this while opponents try to
overtake and ram you into the tunnel walls in their attempts to snag
the first place. Classy moves and extreme courage is rewarded with
money. Rushing down the tunnels at well above MACH 2 pilots are in
for a real challenge!
Using the Diesel Engine, Ballistics render from 20,000 to 110,000
thousand polygons in the view port. Adding up to a total sum of over
1500 textures in seven tracks with fully animated environments and
light effects, you have a stunning piece of entertainment. Effects
like masked chrome, real time lights, reflections, morphing
animations, bump mapping, sparks, explosions, rain, snow and fog are
all well balanced together with the 3D sound to give the gamer a
nice run for money spent on new 3D hardware.
The high score system features the must haves for an insane racer.
Ballistics got track records, lap records for all tracks and
levels of difficulty. Rather unique for the genre the players are
also able to set Top Speed records. These are the highest speed
attained during a race, which you did survive. To gain the overall
all time high top speed is a great achievement and something that
keeps you chasing down tunnels for hours - now ask yourself, how
fast can I really go?!
