I played the older version of this game at a friends house and it was beyond amazing. Road redemption v 0000.02. There were all these car crashes that would propell me through a stage. I would love to see a car flying through the air. I would have to continuously avoid car accidents because they were happening every second.
I just bought the game and I have played the new version of the game and it was boring linear repetitive hitting people off of their vehicles. No joy from crashing cars. OK oh there is game + Let's load it up. It has about half the cars than version 00000.02 All the cars of version 00000.02 have lives of their own. Now they are static and boring. I mean his version was a little laggy but it was way more fun. Now in this new game plus. The only thing I see is levels where bombs go off constantly. Which is cool for one race. But it keeps on happening where all of the enemies drop bombs. Once again no cars have ai and they are static. Bomb bomb bomb Dead. Dead Dead. Oh with the new game plus you can't continue. Okay hyperactive car mode. Tornado cars. Dead Dead Dead So you are forcing me to go do the boring one? Why is this linear boring fest the main campaign? It is too boring it should be taken out.
Bring back the cars and the car accidents and less bombs and explosions please.
My first impression: EXCELLENT! I set graphics to maximum on alpha version 00...0.02.
I do not completely understand what about you are talking sinned. In alpha all the levels go one after another(if you are qualified, of course). So there were modes such as: Traffic Flow Rain Mode, Traffic Mode: All Direction; Normal; Crazy; Insane, All Cars Are After You. In Rain, Crazy and Insane modes cars crash almost every second so it even lags a bit. You have to, as you said, avoid groups of crashed cars.
Also, I would recommend you to read dev blog. This guys are developers(mostly). I guess they changed AI of cars because there was demand/order from the "above".
