The Freeway Awaits: Big City Racer

By Kieron Gillen on July 1st, 2010 at 12:40 pm.

Someone needs to provide wide-screen grabs.

If the press-release that’s been mailed to us is to believed – and we would be mad, crazed fools to ever doubt the veracity of a press-release – there’s a new Free-to-play racing MMO available in the language of English. It’s called Big City Racer, apparently. Following links reveals that there is a website bearing that name where you can download a client and start playing immediately. Can you? I didn’t download it, hence cannot confirm or deny from personal experience, but I have taken you this far. You can go on alone, if you wish. No actually embeddable footage, but here’s a girl in a playboy top is dubbed with an impressive monotone explaining how to play the game, which – as I have previously made clear – may or may not exist. If it exists, it’s micro-payment funded. If it exists. I will not risk endangering my journalistic integrity by making such a claim.

    I just tried it. This is by far the worst racing game I have ever played.

    Its like all the free mmos out there looked at the Evony ads and said..”we want to do this” really bad how many adverts I see for free MMOs that have some scantily clad women or sexual innuondo on it.

    Playboy tops are supposed to be ripped off… WTH, Jessica?

    Wow, this is one of the very, very few games where the design of the initial web page is enough to keep me from playing it.
    Anybody willing to suffer for us and create a video of all the inevitable bugs & glitches?

    Does this remind anyone of Drift City and a few other exactly the same F2P MMOs from the past few years?

    Cuz that’s what the screenshot looks like.

    Wow, the license plate area of those screenshots leads me to believe that they didn’t make that art. They couldn’t make nice shiny-looking car models and consistent environments if they can’t even render a decent license plate. Also, how would a F2P game have the means to get licenses to use the those auto manufacturers’ names and logos? Looks sketchy to me.

    I couldn’t even get the Jessica vids to load but I found this on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bCZbimG2Cs

    It’s exactly what you’d expect.
