Created by veteran developer Invictus Games Ltd., ÂCRC 2005Â will raise the bar for realistic racing games with some of the most eye-popping visuals and advanced vehicle dynamics yet seen. Featuring over 60 races across six distinct environments, ranging from icy mountains to lush countryside to parched desert to sandy beaches, its crossover approach to vehicles and race circuits insure that ÂCRC 2005Â will appeal to both rally and road-racing fans alike.
- Advanced artificial intelligence (AI) drivers can learn the tracks to offer a realistic and continually challenging race experience. They react emotionally and may become angry or afraid, creating unpredictability like real human drivers.
- Stunning 3D graphics include features like bump mapping, specular highlights, real-time environment mapping, flare and glow effects, and motion blur. Leveraging latest generation video cards, pixel-shader technology produces effects like reflections on lakes, rivers, ponds and waterfalls.
- Dynamic modeling of tires, surfaces, aerodynamics and vehicle physics creates an incredibly accurate handling system. The real-time damage system includes body panel deformation and individual part degradationÂbent axles, broken glass, dangling bumpers, etc.
- Multiple game play modes including various single-player and multi-player dedicated modesÂplus a non-linear career mode.
The vehicles are fully player customizable, including race number, decals, paint job and performance tuning. Cars may be built and exchanged over the internet among players.
Available for Windows XP, ME, 98 and 2000, ÂCross Racing Championship 2005Â is scheduled to ship September 15 for a suggested retail price of $29.95. More information can be found online at http://www.graphsim.com.
