This will be a good game, but I'm tired of one console's version of games getting better treatment over another.
Piranha Games racer based on blockbuster 1990 film hits Microsoft's console this winter, PC and Mac versions to follow.
While winter sees the stock car circuit go quiet each year, fans will be getting a little help passing the coming octane-challenged off-season from Paramount Digital Entertainment and Piranha Games. Today, the pair announced that they will be releasing Days of Thunder: Arcade on the Xbox Live Arcade this winter, with PC and Mac versions to follow.
Based on the 1990 Tom Cruise vehicle Days of Thunder, the Xbox Live Arcade game will feature characters like Cole Trickle, Russ Wheeler, and Rowdy Burns. Actor Michael Rooker is reprising his role as Burns to provide voice work for the game and serve as the player's coach. Under Burns' tutelage, players will compete against other drivers from the film, each intended to race in the same style as his onscreen counterpart.
Days of Thunder: Arcade will feature a single-player career mode, quick races, time trials, and a derby mode to see who can rack up the most damage. Those wanting to prove their skills against more competition can jump online for races of up to 12 players.
PlayStation 3 owners will also get a chance to relive the film, and with additional licensing to boot. Paramount and Piranha have also announced Days of Thunder: NASCAR Edition for release on Sony's system. As the name suggests, the PS3-exclusive edition of the game will contain official licensing and drivers, including Kasey Kahne, Kurt Busch, and more.
mj there is a few games like death race full auto 1 and 2 and rock n roll racing on the snes to name a few so ya go play those then and leave
The film was great, maybe the game willl be too.. As for casual48... your just an unintelligent ignorant person who clearly knows nothing about NASCAR, and your comment is worthless!
"We're eating ice cream..." "ICE CREAM?!?!?!" Unreal. I love this movie. Hopefully Robert Duvall is in the game.
I loved this movie... When Nicky and Tommy where young lovebirds too. "Control is an illusion you infantile ego-maniac" -NST
Hopefully the graphics of it have improved a lot since february because in the gameplay trailer I've seen it looks like a ps1 racer that could be 15 years old. Ok on comparison maybe not quite that bad but still pretty bad , road texture is very poor and car models look poor aswell.
Was this game necessary? Can SEGA give us an updated version of Daytona USA with 10 new tracks and 16 players online? I'd rather play that. I have a bad feeling this game is going to be crap. This is seriously scrapping the barrel here.
Ugh. Who would want to play a game based on such a terrible movie... Now, if it was a game in the style of an 80's arcade machine and if it had an 8-Bit Cruise, then I'd surely buy it...
Days Of Thunder was a pretty good movie but it's not something I'd want to play a game based on. I would however play a game based on Death Race......
