Parents are probably safer selecting something like Beetle Adventure Racing or Diddy Kong Racing for their kids.
Funny thing is, I'm not so sure hard-core racer fans will find World Driver Championship to be all that accurate of a simulation either. The game seems to march to the beat of its own drum and those who are able to tune into its rhythm will find it an addictive and rewarding experience.
Arcade racing fans who feel that Tom Cruise "need for speed" will want to stay away from this one. Not only are the controls difficult to grasp, but the overall sense of speed is not readily apparent. This higher degree of learning is sure to frustrate younger players.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
