Serious driving games on Nintendo formats always seem a bit wrong to me, and even more so on Nintendo handhelds. So you’ll excuse me if I’m not a shining light of enthusiasm about Race Driver: Create & Race for the Nintendo DS. I’m as big a fan of Codemasters’s Race Driver series as you’ll find, and the USP – a full track construction kit used on the touch screen, plus Wi-Fi Connection jiggery and indeed pokery – is appealing, but, well, that d-pad just won’t do the job. It’s due in the summer, if actual information is what you’re after. And if it is, to be honest you might want to try a different website.
Sega have got the rights to some more Marvel properties – if you remember, they already had Iron Man. Captain America, The Incredible Hulk and Thor – of Norse mythology fame – are the new ones. They’re all due to tie-in with films, release dates for which seem to be unknown. So: no details, no formats, no dates. Maybe you could imagine what the games will be like; a Captain America RTS, a puzzle game for The Incredible Hulk, and a rhythm-action Thor game, perhaps.
