Have you actually played the game or are you judging it from the screen caps?
The preview on IGN does sound a bit dismal...
"We're sorry to say that, while fun, what we saw of SPOGS was visually unimpressive. The Crash N' Grab mechanic is a blast, but the graphics are straight out of the Nintendo 64 era. Your SPOGS vehicles don't have any sense of weight. When you land a jump there's no "thud," no bounce, nothing."
They wrote that back in April. Any chance the game improved any before release?
I mean, as soon as you jack your first engine you'll be hitting 170 MPH regularly, so the review is obviously from someone who didn't play this more than 30 minutes. --- Watch this: http://www.gametrailers.com/player/31182.html Buy these: Boom Blox, Blast Works OUT NOW!, N+ 7/08/08, Little Big Planet
