New movies of Acclaim’s first PS2 driving that was shown behind closed doors at E 3 .

May 24, 2000

Acclaim today showed its first PS2 driver in action behind closed doors to a select group of journalists. The game, which is entirely based on the single race car, the Ferrari 36O, is a realistic simulation that enables players to get a phenomenal sense of speed and power as they drive behind the wheel of one of the world’s most powerful cars.

The game was not, however, playable on a PS2 Tool kit, but rather on a PC, using a Guillemot Steering wheel. There are no other cars in the game other than the 360, but the opponent AI is extremely complicated, and the team has created a gene-splicing technique that enables racers to drive in several kinds of ways. Drivers will either be extremely aggressive, very technical, be heavy on powerslides, or drive defensively, or take huge risks.

Even though the game was running on a PC and was still quite early, Ferrari 360 Degrees felt like a very solid racing game, in handling, physics, and speed. The basic controls included brake, acceleration, a hand brake, several options such as three-plus camera perspectives, and automatic or manual shift.

Interestingly enough, Ferrari has told the Acclaim development team that it wants to see damage done to the cars. Not straight out damage, mind you, but damage to the car so that there is consequences to your driving behaviors. That aspect wasn’t included in the game I played, but it will be in the next few months. We’ll have more on Ferrari 360 Challenge in the next month or so.

One of Acclaim’s biggest purchases in the past year has definitely been its acquisition of the exclusive rights to the Ferrari license. Let’s make no bones about it, Ferrari makes some of the best racing automobiles on the planet, in both performance and panache, which makes it the perfect license for use in videogames.

Acclaim is already hard at work on two different games for the PlayStation2 using this highly touted license, in the form of Ferrari 360 Challenge and Ferrari Grand Prix. Ferrari 360 Challenge will most likely see the retail shelves first and it’s based on the Ferrari 360 Challenge, a car that was totally developed and conceived with racing specifically in mind. It should be an intense and thrilling racing experience.

We don’t have any further information about the game, so we can’t tell you how many tracks it will include, how many different cars (you might be limited to the Ferrari 360 Challenge, which might not be that bad of a thing), or how many game modes will be present. All we have right now is the forty new high-resolution screenshots that are available for download in the Media section below. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

IGNPS2 will have more information and hopefully hands-on impressions of Acclaim’s Ferrari 360 Challenge at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, California. We hope to have an update on the game at that time.
