V8 Challenge
(hx) 05:19 PM CEST - Jun,08 2002

V8 Challenge is car racing game based on the Australian championshipV8 Supercars and built around the popular HSV team and well known driver Mark Skaife. The game builds on Digital Illusions' successful Nordic Swedish Touring Car Championship concept and recreates many of the famous tracks such as Bathurst, Sandown Park Raceway and Adelaide. V8 Challenge includes some V8 Supercars top teams including the Holden Racing Team, Ozemail Racing, Castrol Perkins Racing, Big Kev Racer, sadly due to licensing issues (maybe you heard that Codemasters will release Race Driver - another V8 Supercars title this year) not all the V8 Supercars teams have been included.
As well as the V8 series, the developers have also included Bonus V8 Ute Series featuring the HSV Maloo cars.V8 Challenge offers several types of racing, the main part of the game is Championship which takes place across 8 rounds, the other modes are Single Race, Time Attack (single race without opponents) and Multiplayer via LAN or Internet.
I live in Europe, so I have heard about V8 Supercars only from TV, but it's not bad to drive these cars > 200km/h, though playing with keyboard is almost impossible. I strongly recommend you to play this game with wheel or joystick. I am of the opinion that keyboard isn't enough sensitive interface to control racing games such as Nascar and V8 Supercar. Most gamers think these racing titles aren't playable for casual players, but this time developers decided that rather then create a hardcore sim, that they will make a mix. V8 Challenge game isn't a hardcore racer like Grand Prix Legends, it's essentially a cross between a simulation and an arcade game, but still offers a few options for the hardcore racers. If you're any V8 Supercars fan then then pick up this game.

snd: 3/5 - quite OK, no commentary
gfx: 4/5 - well done textures, cars are highly detailed with insignias, numbers and sponsors, four views, watch a replay feature
playability: 3/5 - great for V8 Supercars fans & hardcore racers,  the general physics of V8 Challenge are good and have the feel of a rear wheel drive - but it need some time to get in - joystick/wheel recommended, mediocre AI , Multiplayer LAN/Internet
genre: car racing
release: May 2002
developer: Digital Illusions
publisher: EA Sports
Overall: 62%

Don't let the looks fool you, this game is unfinished crap. Shame on Electronic Arts !

Raleposted - Jun, 09 2002 - 03:04
Finaly, after NFS5 real drivers can play real simulation. There is only one problem with sound and when EA fix it, it will be a perfect game. Go EA, go!!!

Kini Kini Koko Doposted - Jun, 09 2002 - 16:49
As you see above : Also NFS-gamers give their opinions about games. No wonder all those cheap crap games are over-rated....

Markposted - Jun, 09 2002 - 17:42
LOL "when EA fix it..." sorry to tell you buddy, but apparently there are no updates coming... and supposedly never will be. Go figure. I guess they realised it was crap so why bother wasting more time on it ;-)

Erbozposted - Jun, 09 2002 - 17:50
EA *DOES* fix bugs !! Their next bugfix will be V8 Challenge 2002 50 bucks. And the next next bugfix will call V8 Challenge 2003 50 bucks ;)

Can someone run through the process of setting up a multiplayer game, i wanna play against my 2 brothers over the net but if i hit the file multi.exe it wont let me click on start server as its greyed out??? wtf chuck

Randyposted - May, 09 2003 - 09:45
the sound of the cars are a bit weak. it needs more grunt from the engines. the ai is way too easy and stupid, i can win the championship easily on very hard level. the driving take a bit to get used to. compared to the games i play like f1 2002 and gp4, v8 challenge doesn't come close to em.

V8sux@ss.composted - May, 11 2003 - 14:18
i am a hardcore racer and i have never seen a more CRAP game than this! the graphics are ok and that about it, has no playability

UllCposted - Jun, 29 2003 - 08:12
aussie game developers need to pick up the pace in terms of everything really. have got around 3 australian type games and none of em are any good.

DaBoposted - Aug, 26 2003 - 01:23
I sometime wonder if the comments by some are working for EA competitors. The game has great visuals and is easy to work out frustrations. Very enjoyable and simple goal.... TO WIN.
