MacOSXHints has posted a review of Ambrosia Software's recently released Redline. The racing game features six tracks, thirteen standard vehicles, and a chance to compete against others online in a mad dash to the finish line. MacOSXHints gave Redline a winning score of 9 out of 10.
From the review:
Offering many modes, including racing, time trials, online play, and challenge mode, Redline Racing has something for nearly any fan of racing games. Though I've got many hours of gameplay in the books now, I've barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer. Why? Because I've been spending all my game time on the ridiculously addictive Challenges section. There are 12 challenges in all, over varying types of track and in different vehicles. The idea is simply to complete the challenge in the shortest-possible time. To check out the full review click on the link below.
The challenges range from the seemingly simple (accelerate-and-stop as quickly as possible) to the frustratingly tricky (I've ground-looped the Downhill Corners challenge more times than I care to count). Since the challenges are all short in duration, it's easy to pop into the game and run through a couple trials with only a few minutes spent. For me, the fun lies in trying to constantly improve on my best time, figuring out the secrets to each vehicle's handling. For each challenge, you earn gold, silver, or bronze medals depending on your results. When you earn gold in certain challenges, you unlock additional vehicles. Complete all 12 challenges with gold medals, and you earn an extra-special vehicle -- one with which you can post some truly impressive lap times.
