Review after playing the demo for Double Fine’s The Cave
I came across this demo while searching the other day and decided to take a look at the gallery before I downloaded it. Once I saw dirt bikes I knew I had to try it. I was never really into dirt bikes and quads, the most fun I had with a game that included those was Excitebike, but that was strictly dirt bikes. In high school I had friends who were all into Motocross and spoke highly of Jeremy McGrath and Seth Enslow, so when Jeremy McGrath’s Supercross 2000 came out for the N64 I decided to ask for it. I can’t remember if it was for a holiday or my birthday, but I ended up getting the game, and I love it. The first thing I heard when I turned it on was the Offspring playing on the intro screen, I started the game and was in awe of the sounds of the engines of the dirt bikes as I raced over various tracks, it sounded just like the Supercross did on TV, the high pitched engines cutting on and off depending on if they were turning or taking a jump. The main thing that I really like, because it surprised me, was that I understood the mechanics of the bike, I knew for certain courses I had to have certain wheels with a certain type of grip, fixed the ratio of speed and acceleration and conquered that whole game. The next game to come close to this excitement was Pure, I played it at Rene’s house because when he got his Xbox 360 it was one of the free games. I enjoyed the HD graphics and in depth customization on the quads, I’m sure if I would have owned the game I would have played a lot more, but since I was over there for a couple of hours I just got a taste, but I defiantly wanted more.
