Stunt Car Extreme (Nokia N-Gage review)

Developer: Fathammer, QueenMeka
Publisher: Fathammer, QueenMeka
Released: 2005

Stunt Car Extreme is a racing game that was also released on the Gizmondo (2005) and Tapwave Zodiac (2003).

+ Track design is generally good and each includes multiple routes which is ideal for determining the most efficient lap times.

+ Unlocking new events and cars is gratifying, and your fellow racers have some personality that enhances the competition.

+ It's exhilarating to boost wildly and successfully pip the opponent to the finish line as you teeter on the edge of control.

- Frame-rate is choppy though which results in over/under-steering when cornering or attempting to line up for a ramp jump.

- Compared to other handheld versions, the portrait N-Gage screen makes it difficult to see items and hazards in your car's vicinity.

- Text overlay after a stunt obscures your already limited vision, and the game doesn't remember your chosen camera angle for each race.

- Graphics are average, with low quality textures and a severe amount of pop-in that can affect your racing lines.
