Much has been made of today’s modern handheld PCs and their three dimensional graphics capabilities, but few games have done anything with them. 3D Speed City is an exception – and a very welcome one at that.
As underground racing games go, OmniGSoft’s 3D Speed City is a simple but decent effort. What makes the game impressive is its use of totally three dimensional graphics running without lag on most medium-spec and above Pocket PCs. The game is nicely put together, it even warns you before the races start that street racing is illegal – and the game is pretty realistic, so perhaps the warning is necessary!
On the downside, and I see this more as an issue with Pocket PCs themselves than this game, the controls are terrible. On our test device, the directional key (mini joystick) is fairly small and unintrusive, but that made controlling the motorbike pretty tricky.
