ONM Remembered – #417

“If you drive off-road for more than three seconds, you get told off. Thanks, mum.”

from Official Nintendo Magazine issue 07 (September 2006)

Boy, what a sterile page design. The ONM reboot probably has five times the wordage its reviews had back in the old N64 days… but you really miss that visual spice, y’know?

Also I can’t keep but find it strange to have a game based on Cars, the movie where cars are living, breathing creatures with faces and everything… and the game’s camera is forever pinned on their mundane backsides. Not only is it a bit like a Transformers game with only vehicles and no robots (cough), but it also makes me feel like I’m objectifying poor McQueen. Surely there’s more to him than the junk in his trunk.
