Milestone

Apex

Game Description:  Racing games are typically sorted into one of two categories: simulation racers or arcade racers. Apex could easily fit into both categories. It breaks so many traditional driving game rules that it almost qualifies as its own genre. Unlike most racing games Apex has elements of role playing game progression: your in-game persona improves as you achieve success on the track.

Apex – Consumer Guide

Apex – Review

The racing genre has traditionally been one of the more staid and basic genres of videogames. Going from track to track, players work on buying new cars, upgrading the cars they already have and winning various competitions. It's a system that pretty much ignores the emotive and narrative aspects of videogames, usually concentrating on gameplay and graphics above all else. Apex, the new driving game being marketed under Infogrames' Atari label, represents an attempted step in a promising new direction for the driving genre by offering up more than just driving.
