Wheels of Destruction: World Tour is a combat based car racer, much like the Twisted Metal Series. Your car is equipped with explosive weaponary ready to take on other cars in a battle to death. Unfortunately, the promises this game had made are not delivered in the final product.
A host of issues plague this game which could have been a lot of explosive fun. At its current state, it feels nothing more than a boring drive in a high density traffic area.
The Wheels of Destruction: World Tour is available on PlayStation Network as a downloadable title. It comes with five maps and six cars. Each of the cars can pick up from four different weapons around the map. As you may have already guessed, if its variety you are looking for, this game seriously lacks one.
I was quite bored during the review when I tried to play the game offline. There is absolutely no tutorial that outlines the basics of the game or any story that would motivate you to play.
Wheels of Destruction: World Tour suffers from all these problems in its online mode as well. There isn’t much different between the offline and online modes of the game because as soon as I logged in, I was welcomed by a lot of lag. With high latency, car combat is almost impossible to enjoy in this game.
During online play you can take part in two of the available modes in Wheels of Destruction: World Tour. The first mode is a simple death match mode described above; the other is the traditional capture the flag mode. You can also play against teams in a team death match; however the same lagging issue still plagues your game.
Wheels of Destruction: World Tour could have been a decent game, but with its current state and laggy servers, I would not recommend wasting money on it.
