If you were one of those gamers who were patient enough to play ‘point and click’ adventure games over 10 or more floppy discs, then today is your lucky day.

GROUND EFFECT Review

Review Glenn Corpes By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
GROUND EFFECT Review

Ground Effect is an F-Zero or WipEout style hover-ship racing game where players traverse a series of varied tracks in high speed racing action.

There are two control schemes for players to use; a tilting scheme and a control stick scheme. Sadly neither one of these options is as responsive or smooth as you’d like them to…
