Toy Story Racer

For this review we go all the way back to 2001. The year in which Toy Story racer has been released on the Playstation 1. Developed by Traveller’s Tales and Tiertex Design Studios.

Funniest racing game ever!?
I have been a big fan of Toy Story my entire life. When I first saw Toy Story 1 it got me hooked, and who can deny after seeing this movie they fantasised about their toys coming to life when they are not around?

With all the Toy Story game releases this game stood out the most for me. Not only were there alot of character to pick in this game, but the challenges are fun and pretty challenging as well.

Challenges
This game has a total of 200 challenges. Every character has a different amount of challenges and some challenges can unlock new characters to play with. These challenges can be normal races, battles games, but even collection challenges. These last can be very frustrating to find all the hidden clowns or dart boards within a certain amount of time.

My favorite challenges are the knockout races. In these challenges you have to race, but also can knockout enemies by hitting them with power-ups. You don’t need to knockout everyone in this challenge, as long as you finish first within a time limit and survive.

For those who think that the challenges are very easy, they will get harder over time. They start pretty easy, but over time you get less time to do more stuff or even clowns are hidden in places you even didn’t know were accessible.

Like Mario Kart, but for kids
Eventhough Mario Kart already is for kids, this game is a very fun game for kids. Challenges can be hard, but there are alot of different challenges to play. The local multiplayer option is very well done, and can be fun for hours.

Re-releases
I have played this game on the Playstation 1 and still play it on a emulator, but Sony also has released the game as “virtual console” game on the Playstation 3. No memory cards needed, and it’s fun to play this old classic game on the playstation once again.

I’m still hoping that this game will be remastered, or remade for the Playstation 4. Because a game with this many different challenges deserves a shoutout.

Yay or nay?
I would recommend everyone that’s looking for a fun, racing game to check this game out on the PS3, or buy the game on Ebay and play it on a Playstation Emulator if you haven’t played this game yet.

Farming Simulator 2015

Farming Simulator 2015 is a simulator game made by Giants Software and published by Foucs Home Interactive. The goal of Farming Simulator 2015 is very easy. Just take care of a farm.

Vehicles
The game offers a wide range of vehicles and tools to make working on the farm a little easier. The controls of the vehicles are very well done. I was afraid it would be a maze of controls to do something, but they solved it making the R2, L2 buttons a little sub-menu. This results in easy to learn gameplay.

Farmer
You do need to like simulator games or farming games to have fun with this game. The game is all about farming and that’s the only thing you will be doing for a long time. The goal is to plant, harvest and sell crops which make you money to expand your farming business.

Difference between Ps3 and Ps4
This is one of the last PS3 games released and it starts to show. The Ps3 and Xbox360 version both miss a crutial part of the game. The multiplayer. It would have been fun to play multiplayer with friends to make the game more fun.

And ofcourse does the Ps3 version have worse graphics than the Ps4 version. But that’s reasonable.

Not alone
The lack of multiplayer doesn’t mean you’re all on your own. You can hire AI helpers that will help you take care of the farm for a small amount of money. It’s still not as great as multiplayer, but atleast you don’t have to do anything on your own.

JosWeb Score (0/100):
70/100
This score is for the PS3 version only. The game is fun and if you really like simulators, working on a farm or just spend your time in virtual outdoors I could recommend you this game. The game offers alot of gameplay hours. The only comment I have is the lack of multiplayer. Maybe they try to make people buy the Ps4 or Xbox One version, but the lack of multiplayer in this version is really a shame.
