Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad Review: Creating Dust Storm Warnings

Jeremy McGrath is no stranger to video games, having starred in a series of motocross titles in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Over a decade later, his name has resurfaced with Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad. However, rather than taking place on two wheels, this game places you in rally cars, trophy trucks, and buggies – it’s more akin to Dirt than anything bearing McGrath’s name in the past. Developed by Rainbow Studios spinoff 2XL Games, this $10 downloadable title delivers a racing experience you don’t see much of these days – straight up off-road racing. (more…)

PSN Today: Uncharted 1 & 2, Resident Evil Chronicles HD, Amazing Spider-Man, more

If, for some insane reason, you own a PS3 and have yet to play Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Sony is giving you another chance by adding both titles to the PlayStation Store today. Hmm, I’m a PS3 owner who’s never played either, maybe this was meant for me.

Another new release that was clearly meant for me is Resident Evil Chronicles: HD Collection. The compilation bundles together The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles, two light gun games that were previously exclusive to the Wii.

Sony’s not done as they’ve also added movie tie-in game The Amazing Spider-Man, food preparation sim Order Up!!, offroad racer Jeremy Mcgrath’s Offroad and PSone Classic The Little Mermaid II.

Finally, the PSP RPG Unchained Blades, which was developed by the makers of Grandia and Lunar, has been added to the PlayStation Store today.

Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad to tear up XBLA, PSN this summer

D3 Publisher announced today that it will be bringing 2XL Games’ Jeremy McGrath: Offroad to Xbox Live Aracade this summer, with a PlayStation Network version being handled by Reverb Publishing. 2XL was founded by devleopers who have worked on the MX vs. ATV series, so that should make for a strong pedigree going into this one.

Offroad will be making its debut at the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series event at the Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA from May 21-22.
